May 22, 1998 – The Astro Orbitor Opens in Disneyland
“As the newest star pilot to join the fleet, the time has come for you to take to the sky.”
On May 22, 1998, the Astro Orbitor attraction opened in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland area. It was based on Orbitoron from Disneyland Paris, rather than the Astro Orbiter attraction at Walt Disney World. The attraction has guests loaded into a three-person spaceship where they can soar above Tomorrowland, adjusting the height of their rocket as they spin around.
