    Two New "Entertain and Learn" Atractions Offered at Epcot Innoventions
    Innoventions -- Epcot's playground of fascination, making technology fun -- has unwrapped two new attractions:

    * Where's the Fire? is a 4,000-square-foot exhibit designed by Walt Disney Imagineering in cooperation with Liberty Mutual's fire safety specialists. The exhibit features an interactive game house that challenges teams of guests to find and eliminate home fire hazards. The exhibit also includes a "Play It Safe" house for younger guests that simulates the direction fire travels and tests children's fire safety knowledge through three "Burning Questions" touch-screen kiosks.

    * Fantastic Plastic Works is a 5,000-square-foot exhibit telling the story of plastics. Sponsored by Plastics Industry, Inc., the exhibit treats Epcot guests to three areas that showcase how plastics enhance our lives every day -- from basic plastic bottles and bags to medical breakthroughs. One interactive area allows guests to create various types of plastics and learn their everyday use.

    I don't know when the first attraction is supposed to be open, but I get the impression that it already is because they said, "The Magic of Disney Animation attraction has reopened..." I don't have guesses about the other two.

    I got engaged at Epcot on June 17, 2007! We're going back to celebrate my graduation in May 2009!

    Yes, all the attractions listed are open now. My DW and I did the Fire and Plastics things in EPCOT. Where's the Fire? is really fun for a family and especially little kids. The Plastics exhibit has a game where you make a robot from different kinds of plastics and then race against others by hitting spots on the floor in front of monitors. My DW did it and was exhausted at the end.

    Yes, they are all open. My DW and I did the two in EPCOT, but did not do the animation tour as we did the old one last year. Maybe next November will do the new tour. The Fire one is great for families and for little kids. The Plastics race is way cool, but you'd better be in good shape to complete and/or win the race of the robots.

    The fantastic plastics and fire safety exhibits are in Innoventions, in case anyone missed that.

    From everything I've heard about the class, it's similar to the one at at DisneyQuest and sounds like there's no charge to do it... after all, paper and a small amount of pencil isn't it a huge expense.
