Horizons was a great ride. Unfortunately, it was doomed from Day 1 in that is was built on a sinkhole. The ride system was like a Doom Buggy for four, but it was suspended from the top. There was a slight forward tilt to the seat that gave me the jitters, and the mechanics were not the smoothest. The lift system took you past some scenes (described in many places) and then all of a sudden you were at the top of the ride and you entered an Imax theater that blew you away the first time you experienced it. You only got to see a part of the movie loop. I am afraid of heights and even though there was a floor near the vehicle you could tell you were way up there by looking at the screen from top to bottom. After the Imax, you were taken down to the end scene that you had a choice in. However, it never seemed to work for us. In all, I would say we rode Horizons about 7 times before it closed. Near the end of its existance it broke down a lot. One time we were stuck in front of the space wheel for over 15 minutes. It was not a good experience with two children, one of which had to go to the bathroom. We made it to the end just in the nick of time.
