The effects on this were insane. It really felt like mice were running all over my feet, and the lion was in my face. With this being said, Captain EO is an all-around better experience.

This ride is not too bad, but children will likely enjoy it more than adults; by the same token, children may have issues with the show being too intense for them. The preshow is a complete waste of time in an unpleasant environment, and the show just seems a bit dull and hackneyed, especially for those who have seen the Honey, I Shrunk series of films. Enjoyable but below expectations.

Now I love the movie this attraction is based on to death, I honestly do, but this attraction somehow manages to stray away from the winning formula that made up the movie. While the movie had comedy, action, and great acting, this one was pathetic, dull, and quite simply put, the actors simply seemed like they didn’t want to be there (and I don’t blame them since the plot and script stinks).

Sharing the Imagination pavilion with Figment’s attraction, Professor Wayne Szalinski’s attraction unfortunately isn’t nearly as mind-blowing and enjoyable as its neighbor. One thing I can’t knock the attraction for is it’s neat little entrance with the shrink ray proudly displayed directly above it. While the attraction offers Fastpasses, they aren’t necessary at all since the theater is gigantic.

My horrible experience began with a pre-show. However, this pre-show had nothing at all to do with the attraction. Instead, it was a ten minute advertisement real for the ride’s sponsor, Kodak, featuring far too many Kodak moments to count. Not only that, but the conditions in the pre-show area were poor, as everyone was packed in like sardines, standing on a slanted platform. Definitely not the most comfortable environment for a poor show. This horrid pre-show really established the tone for the poor attraction that followed.

Quick story first. Ten years ago just a few seconds before the show was to begin, I chickened out, afraid that I would literally get shrunken down to the size of a fly during the film (yes I know, I was pathetic). Well, building off that pre-show came the main feature. Oh but it was bad, really bad. Well the whole attraction is built around Wayne Szalinski winning the Inventor of the Year award, and immediately after he demonstrates his inventions and guess what happens? Whoops! He shrinks us.

First off, the film is incredibly outdated and that really diminished most of my enjoyment of the attraction. The film just was very blurry throughout making for a poor picture. Not only that, but the audio just seemed muffled as well. Even past how the ride is clearly outdated, the plot was abysmal. For the entire time that proceeds the shrinking, there is no enjoyment whatsoever as there isn’t any real action or conflict.

Heck, even after being shrunken (which in all honesty is the only really cool part about the attraction since the seats shake and the illusion of being shrunken down is very well executed), the scenes that followed just seemed random and worst of all, the special effects really are poor, especially compared to what I’ve come to expect from Disney. All of the 3-D effects just seemed poor and unexciting, and the 4-D elements such as the rats running by my feet and the dog licking the audience were just average in my opinion and really nothing special. Lastly, just the finale for this attraction is unfulfilling, going along with the whole theme of the attraction.

Wow! What a rant! Well, sadly that is really what I think about this attraction, and yes, I really think it is indeed that bad. This is by far the worst 3-D show I have ever viewed, and one of the biggest disappointments of my entire trip this past summer. From being outdated to a poor plot, this attraction just has numerous flaws that make this painstakingly difficult to watch, especially since I’m a huge fan of the film. This is definitely not worth your time while at Epcot unless you’re a diehard Honey, I… fan and are very forgiving.

This ride is old, they should make a new movie that is suitable for this kind of ride.

This 1980&#39..s movie has no place at Epcot. Think about it. When the film was released it was cutting edge special effects but now its nothing. I don&#39..t understand how this 3-d show keeps hanging on and yet they get rid of &quot..Food Rocks.&quot.. Im so tired of this show.

Very good 3-D show. The show was pretty interesting and Im glad Rick Moranis was in it and the acting was really good. Also, the effects were great as well, especially the sneezing dog, the footsteps, and the mice. The visuals were great as well, from shrinking the audience to the 3-D effects. The show was also pretty funny as well.

One of my favorite 3D rides. Probably because it was my first 3D rides. I think the story is funny. I really like this ride even if the film is making the movie fuzzy. BEWARE THE RATS!

The first time I saw this show I loved it! But as Disney has expanded and update their use of
3-D movies in their parks, I feel this one definately shows some age. Not because the story line is dated, I think that is almost timeless (except for the clothes). But the use of technology. They are doing much more advance things with 3-D movies. Still, I think the mouse thing is great and it is just enjoyable. The last time I saw it, I had no wait and only a partially filled theater. Could be scary for children! I do leave there feeling like I should buy some Kodak film!
