The Key Plans for the Future, Part 2!

Hello, my lovely readers!

Based on your requests in the comments from the last post, here are a few more pictures of the Horizons blueprints I found on eBay recently:

Luke Anthony requested some shots of the VIP Lounge area used by the GE brass:

Here are a few of the...*ahem*...."facilities"  for the lounge area we should all recognize...
                        Luke also asked for some close up shots of the Omnimax screens, which I've included below:

Here is the loading area. You'll notice the moving walk, which is later referred to as the moving "belt" in the ride script.
"From all of us, thanks for exploring Horizons. Now, please take small children by the hand and watch your step onto the moving belt. The belt and your vehicle are traveling at equal speed." 

            I also decided to include some pictures of the backstage areas, particularly the break room.
False skylights. I love that they included those.

SpotWeld asked if I could look for air handling, power hookups and mounting hardware for the scent distribution system, but nothing was clearly labeled enough for me to deceipher it. I'm going to try to brush up on some drafting and construction lingo so I can try and read these better. I'm sure it's in there somewhere, but it's probably in some kind of coding I am unable to read. I'll let you know if I find any more about it!

On a side note, I've been getting a lot of questions lately about how people can help out the archives, which I am eternally grateful for! As of right now, I am in need of a few supplies, so I started a GoFundMe account and 100% of the proceeds raised will go towards supplies for the archives. If you're interested in helping, I've included the link below.

As always, thank you all so much for stopping by! Don't forget to follow me on Twitter @LBATArchives, and like our Facebook page, Looking Back At Tomorrow.

Thanks again!
