There was so much do to...we only made it through West. We loved the Pizza Game and Fire Safety Game, DD loved making her frog and making music with the robots.
We love Innoventions for all it's quirks. We love the robot contest with it's make-your-own plastic robot at the end. We love the food rocks contest. We love the music making industrial robots. We love the home of the future. Sure, it's a bit dated and hokey, but that's what we love about it!
Innoventions is supposed to have a variety of new technologies and stuff of the sort. It does have some interesting exhibits, but it isn't a miraculous place. We don't always visit Innoventions, but it is an nice change once is an while
Ah Innoventions...I have such a love hate relationship with you.
I love the idea of future products being available and 15 years ago it was a great idea. But now the products have not really kept up with the new technology, and did I see EA sports videogames as one of the attractions? I can play those at my house...
So I don't wanna see it go, but they can do ALOT with the amount of space Innoventions takes up.
I've never been a fan of Innoventions. Been to the one at Disneyland as well. What's the point? Most of the technology is really not all that advanced, and if your a geek like me you probably heard about it from one of your geek friends already or read about it on the net or magazine somewhere.
Most theme park fans know Innoventions was Paul Pressler's baby that got him 1st noticed by Eisner, because it was an attraction that they didn't have to spend any of their own money on - they just got the different vendors to pay the money for their own displays. It's one big giant occasionally interesting string of commercials.
A GREAT PLACE TO WONDER AROUND AND LOOK AT THE NEAR FUTURE PRODUCTS THAT ARE POSSIBLY GOING INTO PRODUCTION. SERVAUL COMPANIES SPONSOR THESE DIFFERENT EXIBITS SO THERE SEEMS TO BE A PUSH FOR THEIR PRODUCTS. NICE TO SEPERATE FROM YOUR GROUP AND JUST WANDER AROUND FROM PLACE TO PLACE BY YOURSELF.
This area is great if you have some extra time. Lots of things to do for just about anyone, especially kids. Worth a stop but don't give yourself too much time here. It's sometimes easy to spend a lot of time here.
