Journaling - We were headed out of the park and saw this ride off to our left with hardly any wait time so decided to go. I don't remember much of the preshow or queue because there wasn't really any line and we didn't tarry. The premise is that E.T. is desperately needed on his home planet. We board bikes that serve as the ride vehicle ? how appropriate! The vehicles travel past NASA and police officials who give chase and try to arrest the riders and capture E.T. As they are about to be caught, a police car appears out of nowhere and just as they are about to hit it, the bicycles begin to fly over the city and then into outer space.
The bikes are then transported to a kind of portal area with flashing lights which, when finally turned around, arrives at the Green Planet. The guests then encounter Botanicus, E.T.'s teacher, who urges the visitors to save E.T.'s friends. E.T.'s healing touch travels through the Green Planet, reviving his friends and beginning a celebration with numerous baby E.T.s frolicking and playing. We really enjoyed this ride ? it actually reminds me a lot of Peter Pan's ride at WDW.
