A little over 6 months after its predecessor, If You Could Fly, had closed, Delta Dreamflight opened in June 1989. Though the new attraction took shape relatively quickly, it had changed dramatically. In addition to the obvious Delta Airlines references being added, the attraction story was changed and the ride layout modified. Rather than simply introducing vacation destinations, Delta Dreamflight focused more on the golden era of aviation and the history of manned flight.
After a short closure, the attraction was renamed to simply “Dreamflight” in January 1996 as a result of Delta pulling their sponsorship. The ride went unchanged until June of 1996 when it’s successor, Take Flight, opened.
