From what I've heard, it seems like Xploratorium will be like a cross between Fun Factory and Innoventions! Either way, I'm really happy to see th observatory going into good use.


Very much agreed. A very interesting and unique usage of the observatory and addition to the park. Can't wait to the the final product.


Like the giant indoor playgrounds where kids shoot balls all over?

Not at all....Look what Screamscape has to say about it....

According to Screamscape sources the old Chiller building will actually get something a bit more unique than a new kiddie play area. While I donít know the exact details, Iíve been told that it is being aimed at an older audience and will offer a completely unique interactive experience.


Can someone say Balin's Jungleland flats with lasers, fog, and rock music. LOL.

I seriously think it will be something like a motion simulator ride. What else can an older audience do in that building. Maybe rock climbing up the sides of the wall or something. IDK!

I saw that too. I thought that report was talking about a more adult thing in the station and a kids area in the observatory.

Well its going to have something to do with Batman. I wonder if they spent a lot of money for this new attraction. It might be better than we are expecting it to be, at least I think that way.

So it's not just the building with the hands, the Chiller Station is involved in this project too? This "building" is going to be decently large. Looking forward to this greatly. TDK gave me hope that future attractions here would be greatly themed and cooler, and somewhat comparable to Disney and Universal Studios.

That is true. TDK made me believe every project after it will be equal or better to what it was. Just look how Bizarro is coming along.....

I know this is off topic but speaking of Bizarro...has anything big gone down yet at the queue or the piles or dirt?

Anyway right now, I doubt this will open before the end of May unless they are going heavy duty on getting this done. It doesnt seem like they are doing anything.

For the Observatory, they are building little surrounding areas that look to be 10ft tall or a little lower. Wonder what thats going to be.

From what I understand, it's going to be somewhat like Innoventions, but more like the end of Space Ship Earth!
