It’s stunning when those doors open. Took my breath away.

Absolutely true, was there in 2019 and I remember I got all choked up.

It is an emotional experience.

Disappointingly the doors failed to open when I went through, really cut into the magic having to take the little door on the side.

I was also hungover as sin, so that movie was not a good time.

When I was there it was suspended with the doors open. Do they close them for some reason? It's kind of a display, I figured they're just always open.

Not the shuttle bay doors, the exhibition doors.

Before entering the area with the shuttle, there is a film then a large garage like door (usually) opens exposing Atlantis. At least that was the set-up 5-19 years ago.

Oh yeah, I saw that. It was pretty epic. Kind of a movie theater experience with loud music preparing you for the big reveal.

Yeah, so when I went through the big door failed, so no big reveal, just a side door. Got to see the looks on the faces of the next gang though!

Yeah it was awesome, I hadn't known they had a shuttle it so was a wonderful surprise when the movie faded revealing the real craft on the other side of the glass.

Finally got to go last year. I didn’t know that was going to happen. My partner told me later I squeezed her hand with excitement. I didn’t even realise I had.

Yeah we were the last show of the day and my dad was absolutely gobsmacked, it is such a masterful design. I really want to know who came up with the idea for the show to end like that
