20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Submarine Voyage was a ride at the Walt Disney World theme park from 1971 through 1994. It was replaced with a Little Mermaid themed ride until 2004. The spot hosted a Winnie the Pooh area later, and now houses the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. If you want a ride based on the old Disney movie from Jules Verne’s book, you’ll have to look elsewhere. During its operation it was criticized by ride aficionados for having a queue that took far too long due to its 20-minute ride time, and it was loved for the same long ride that offered guests a 20-minute reprieve from the baking Florida sun. It replicated an undersea adventure with mermaids, a giant squid attack, and plenty of faux life aquatic.
Now, thanks to Kevin Perjurer and Defunctland, a site dedicated to the history of long-dead amusement park rides and the history behind them, we have a VR recreation of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. There’s even a 360 degree YouTube version available here if you can’t go the full VR route. The VR experience comes complete with the audio track from the ride so you can marvel at the scratchy, tinny, mono speaker saga from the safety and comfort of your home. Take a ride on your Oculus or Steam VR before the mouse hunts this down.
