Today we are continuing our look at the Autopia from before 1999's temporary closure for major refurbishments that changed the look of the attraction forever.
Here's a beautiful (and unusual) picture, taken from an Autopia vehicle. What a great view of the sub lagoon, normally seen from above. Although I am on the record as not being too crazy about these Mark V Monorail trains, this one does look pretty neat. Notice the subs in the distance, with their yellow paint jobs... the Submarine Voyage had closed in September of 1998. As you know, it finally reopened as the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage in June 2007.
In most of these photos, I am impressed by the lush landscaping; plenty of trees and shrubs help to soften and beautify what could have been acres of concrete and blacktop.
Lastly (for today) we get this nice low-to-the-ground look at those cool Corvette-style cars passing us in the opposite direction. If I could own one of those cars (sure, that'll happen), which color would I want? Decisions, decisions.
