    Any word on reviews on SpectacuLAB? Or advice on how early to arrive? I'm curious how popular it is, or if most people even know it's there.

    Wondering/hoping I can just show up a couple of minutes before the first show (10:30) and get in to see it.

    The kids walked right up to the 4:30 show yesterday. It looked like there were maybe 20 people in line, or so. I didn't go, because I stayed back with their food and drinks, but they really enjoyed it.

    Cool. Thank you both so much for bringing this to my attention. I am going to have to work this into my Epcot plans for next month. My 7 year old is big into science.

    Has anyone done this yet? Would be interested in your opinions, thanks.

    (For those who don't know, this is in Innoventions at Epcot.)

    We enjoyed this in late December. It was fun watching the kids' interactions and the scientists were very sensitive to ensuring all the kids who wanted to participate were able to. We simply walked by as they were opening the door and decided to walk in. The kids sit on the floor in front of the stage and there was plenty of bench seating available. Definitely not crowded.

    I enjoyed this as well! I did it on my last week of November/first week of December trip. I don't think I would recommend it for audiences without children, really. I had hoped this would be something my bf would enjoy (he's a big science person) but most of the experiments weren't quite what I was expecting. The final (and dramatic experiment) was neat though. And the kids who were participating certainly seemed to enjoy it.

    I am assuming young children would enjoy this show more than a 12/13 year old teen? I was really hoping it would appeal to a wide range of ages.

    I'm not sure how wide-ranging the appeal would be, and I hesitate to offer my opinion as I took neither teens nor younger children. I'm 30, and I mostly enjoyed it going solo. It was marginally entertaining, but not something I would personally do again in a hurry. I think the ending experiment could be entertaining for a teen - but I fear that the bulk of the show would not be.

    Does this show have different versions? We have been a couple of times and my daughter thinks that there are different topics at different show times. Does anyone know anything about this??
