Description And Comments
This attraction replaced its dull and vacuous predecessor in the fall of 1999 and was retooled again in 2002 to add the ever-popular purple dragon, Figment. Journey into Imagination takes you on a tour of the zany Imagination Institute. Sometimes you're a passive observer and sometimes you're a test subject as the ride provides a glimpse of the fictitious lab's inner workings. Stimulating all of your senses and then some, you are hit with optical illusions, an experiment in which noise generates colors, a room that defies gravity, and other brain teasers. All along the way, Figment makes surprise appearances. After the ride, you can adjourn to an interactive exhibit area offering the latest in unique, hands-on imagery technology.
Reader responses to Figment and Company are pretty consistent. First, from a Brooklyn, New York, family:
Figment was just plain weird - talking about five senses, then only introducing three, then the dragon singing . . . huh?
And from a Franklin, Tennessee, family of three:
You should put a bold notation next to the Figment attraction stating it should be experienced only if you are a HUGE Figment fan. We didn't even know who Figment was, and we all hated this attraction. After the Figment disaster, I had to hide from my husband the fact that I was selecting the next attractions based on your touring plan. He was convinced after the plan sent us to Figment that all touring plans were a waste of time.
Pleasant rather than exciting, the ride falls short of the promise suggested by its name. Will you go to sleep? No. Will you find it amusing? Probably. Will you remember it tomorrow? Only Figment knows.
- Open for Evening Extra Magic Hours.
The standby wait for this attraction rarely exceeds 15 minutes. You can enjoy the interactive exhibit without taking the ride, so save it for later in the day.
