A bit of History:
" Tour of the Universe was a space shuttle simulation ride
located in the basement level of the CN Tower
The name of the ride, Tour of the Universe,
and its content were adapted from a work of the same name
cowritten in 1980 by Robert Holdstock and Malcolm Edwards
who sold the rights for the ride.
Construction began in 1984 and the ride began operations in 1986.
It was built by SimEx of Toronto and was the largest
scale simulation ride at the time.
The ride was supposed to occur in the year 2019
and carried 40 passengers of the shuttle to Jupiter
after being cleared through a customs area
in a spaceport deep underneath the tower.
The shuttle depicted was similar to the US space shuttle,
but instead of a cargo bay the ship had a passenger compartment
The launch pad was located at the base of the tower and arrived at a space station.
The concept lasted until 1990 and later dismantled.
