    Absolutely no idea!!

    To be honest, I'm not a great fan of the Wonders of Live Pavilion!! I feel, personally that it is time the whole pavilion had a face lift!!

    The Wonders of Life Pavillion closed for good in January 2004. They do occassionaly open Cranium Command and Making of Me during peak crowds. They have been using the pavillion for special corporate events. When we were there last June none of the attractions were open. I miss Body Wars for the plain and simple fact that it got a reaction out of my Dad. In 1993 he went on it for the first time and he couldn't get off it quick enough. My Mom and I still laugh out loud about his reaction to it because he loves roller coasters and thrill rides. I think he just felt a little claustrophobic! He was literally ticked off that the CM didn't stop the ride when he was yelling he wanted off. My Mom and I couldn't stop laughing at him and tease him about it to this day! Ah....memories!

    I do agree that is was about time that The Wonders of Life Pavilion got a facelift. So Body Wars is closed for good? I wonder if eventually they are going to close Cranium Command and Making of Me. Cranium Commnand is ok but it is a show like Food Rocks and that closed. Don't get me started with Making of Me, I feel like I am back in college at a Human Anotomy Biology Class again.I mean the whole Wonders os Life Theme is good but they just need new attractions.

    When I was down there for Christmas 2005, the entire pavilion was open, includign Body Wars. However, it was not listed on the map, so they go the word out using, of all things, Fastpasses. After you got your normal Fastpass for an attraction, the machie would spit out an extra one with "WONDERS OF LIFE NOW OPEN!" in big letters. They also made mention of it while you were getting into your theater-car in Ellen.

    i really do miss Body Wars! though i agree the whole pavillion could use some sprucing up since it has become a little outdated(i hate to say it)...at it's peak it was a great place to have some hands on interaction and the movies were cute...it was something else to do at epcot...i hope they refurbish it and eventually open the Wonders of Life pavillion at some point.

    I'm sad that Body Wars seems to be gone for good (you gotta love any attraction that has Tim Matheson and Elizabeth Shue in all their 80's glory).

    It is awesome news, however, that they're still opening Cranium Command on occassion. This is one of my all-time favorite attractions, and I'd really like to be able to see it once more before it's gone for good.

    Body Wars was one of those things that sneakily made you learn. It was just too cool for a learning experience. Other parts of the park are so obvious about learning that it almost makes them boring. I really loved Body Wars. Whenever i get a splinter i always think about it even though i havnt been on it since i was 8. Actually whenever i prick my finger i think about it, it had that great of an effect on me. Kinda sad but was an awsome ride/learning experience.
