The better question is.....

Does anyone really care about this outdated ride anymore? I think it's a total airconditioned snooze-fest.

I like this ride, it simple and relaxing. I love Ellen and Bill Nye although somewhat non-existant since his kid show was cancelled is starting to become more popular again as the push for kids to learn science is increasing.

The film definitely needs an updating!
But NO Mileys, Lindsays, Brittneys, Jonases, etc.
(Well, maybe one Jonas!)

My brother (and my daughter) would never leave the ride if you put a Jonas on there. I haven't been on it in a while (it's so far from everything else we like to do at Epcot: alcohol).

Okay, apparently I'm not educated at all about anything in EPCOT, I have no clue where this ride is. Is it out near the front near Spaceship Earth?! If it is, I've never been on any rides out that way except for Spaceship Earth, Mission Space, Test Track, Soarin' (If it's out there, I forget) and Honey I Shrunk The Audience. I wanna get to the drinks so fast I forget to look for other rides. LOL.

It's kind of tucked away in a corner between Innoventions and Mission Space. It's up by the old "Wonders of Life" pavilion. If we don't have the kids, we usually just stay in World Showcase, but when the kids are with us, we tend to ride the Land, Imagination, maybe Soarin and/or Nemo, and SE. Other than that, we're still in World Showcase b/c the kids love Maelstrom and Off Kilter.

Actually Ellen is the best thing on it.

Well, I don't know if I should go on it while I'm there or not. That's if I even get there. LOL.

Considering the old ride was a thinly veiled commercial for atomic energy and that they were looking for a way to recycle the only cool thing they had -- the dinosaurs -- I think they did a decent job. We enjoy the pre-show and the ride. Not everything has to be "thrilling". Fun and silly is also good. I think Ellen was a great choice and also appreciate her return to WDW after her ouster from the book store in MGM.

This is one of my favorites!! I love the humor, the dinosaurs, the filsm.

I think it's fun and has a lot of imagination in it.

I like BOTH slow/dark rides like this AND the thrill types. I can see fun in both kinds.

I like this, but I do think it is a wee bit too long. It is dark, and it is nice and cold in there, but it seems to go on forever and forever. I like Jamie Lee Curtis in it. I like Bill Nye. I think Ellen is terrific. But it has to be the longest attraction at Epcot.

Mike...that is not my nap place. Ask Rick. I nap in Tiki Bird and Country Bear. I'm not sure I have ever sat through either one of those two without falling fast asleep. I may have snored quite loudly once in Tiki Bird. New management notwithstanding!
