We went through it yesterday, and thought it was pretty boring. There's nothing entertaining there if you're over, say, six.

^ Can you say more about it?

Unfortunately the facebook pictures made it look pretty lame as well. But I'll wait til I experience it before deciding whether the money would have been better spent opening bumper cars for the year. Leaning towards yes at the moment, though.

There are five or six stations. One that involves making your face into a 3-D image caricature (that you have to pay for), one where your movements become the movements of a cartoon character, one where they put your image in a number of hologram-y "scenes", and one where you guide cars around a video game screen. It reminded me a lot of what EPCOT did... 30 years ago.

^ Sorry I don't. Went today and decided the pictures weren't important. It is nothing special. Fun for five minutes. It was nicely done though. There were a few interesting things. If you go you should definately check out the microsoft surface. Some of the things it can/ will be able to do are awesome. But It was pretty empty in there, so don't run to it. It brought back some great memories of chiller though! Oh, and who is professor keany?

Cool thanks for the description, did most of the activities have a fee associated with them?

I'm pretty sure it was just the caricature one. There was software on the Microsoft surface which allowed you to edit photos of you taken by park photographers, as Long as you had your picture ticket with you. The editing was free, but as always, buying the picture (which had to be done at the main photo kiosk thing) costed the normal price for one of those photos taken when you enter the park.

Electronic caricatures are really cool.

it wasnt anything special they should get rid of the corny cabanas and re open the bumper cars. It was kind of like a virtual arcade.
