A very good educational attaction. This ride is long in length but not so long that is unberable. This show i only week in that I am not a fan of Ellen Degeneres and the Dinosaurs seemed a little out of place, but are very well done. Oh and it is clear that ExxonMobil infulenced the lesson a bit.

The Universe of Energy is very educational, but lacks something necessary to create a great attraction. Its too predictable and somewhat boring, but the dinosaur scene really saved it. The dinosaurs are very realistic, expecially the one that spit out water.

This is worth checking out. Some of the animatronics are pretty cool, and the whole sitting in a big theatre inside some sort of vehicle and then the whole theatre breaks apart and your on a ride, and then your back in the theatre, quite interesting.

I hated this ride. not to be negative, but it lacked what I like to call "eye wonders" It just was just too corny for me to enjoy it. My uncle and my dad were sleeping, and I was actually Hoping there was an escape to this! Though the breaking apart of the theatre was cool, and the dinosuare spitting water was neat too, but other than that I sort of, I dont know, what are the words............Ha, I know. HATE IT!

Preshow is old and dated, it doesnt fit well with the main ride through the prehistoric world, and it lacks the extra "something" that makes a successful Disney/EPCOT ride. It was awesome "back in the day," but now it is just hanging on waiting for replacement.

I enjoy long rides and I just like these type of things with lots too see. Jamie Lee Curtis is awesome in anything. It does seem kind of weird to be checkin out a hot chick at an energy ride but oh well. Fun, but ride it while your waiting for your fast pass to come up on test track.

Ellen is actually a fairly good addition to what was once a dry and boring ride. The Jeopardy motif is cute and so is Jamie Lee Curtis. The dinosaurs are as stiff as ever, and the Ellen animatronic is rather cheesy. The ride falls apart at the end, the 10 minute film about energy is still rather too dry for most guests, and some of the points it makes a little dubious. Global warming is merely passed off as a "controversial subject." Its fun watching Bill Nye essentially denounce every other form of energy apart from good old oil though. The travelling theatre is still a rather cute feature. Worth a ride, if you have 40 minutes (!) to kill.

A good update to a good ride. Love the dream sequence Jeopardy about energy. Lots of celebritys in this attraction: Ellen Degeneres, Bill Nye, Jamie Lee Curtis (as Judy) and if you look real close - the caveman who discovers fire is the guy who played Kramer (on Seinfeld). Love the Bruce Broughton music to the ride as well (you can find samples of the music from the ride at Bruces official site: www.BruceBroughton.com)

I liked this ride, its fun and pretty educational. I liked the humor, meant to appeal to anyone ("Hey, bill the science guy!" "hey Ellen the...." haha, theming is nice as well. overall, worth the 40 min wait, heh.
