    Epcot KP Attraction

    I did all seven of the Team Possible scenarios last week at Epcot. All-in-all, it was fun even for two adults. Ideally, you want an adult or two to tag along with three or four eight to thirteen-year-olds. Watching the head-scratching followed by the incredulous reactions to some of the external events would be enough to keep any parent amused.

    The main draw of the hunts is to make things light up, rise up, talk, blow smoke, or make loud noises, or various combinations thereof, in public. Some of the events you trigger with your Kimmunicator Lite causes everyone in the vicinity to stop and stare, such as the Singing Steins in Germany, or the lifesized, hollering Dr. Dementor appearing as a racing cuckoo-clock figure twenty-five feet above the main 'square', also in Germany. Or the Jade Monkey statue rising to the strains of celestial music and much bubbling from a previously serene pond in China.

    It is a bit frustrating that they aren't doing a couple little things that would make the experience even better (and it was a very popular activity). Number one would be a kiosk to sell Kim Possible gewgaws. Doing all of the adventures takes a lot of time (we spread ours out over three days, and even then we didn't do everything, as a number of the hunts have alternate activities).

    You do them all, and don't even get as much as a sticker! They could easily sell small posters, T-shirts, hats, mugs... The usual folderol. Figment, the dragon, has all sorts of stuff for sale in the Imagination Building, and all he has in the world is an eight-minute ride. Heck, I'd have bought 'em all! Most important, I would guess they would have little trouble moving significant numbers of DVDs and PS2 games. Many adults were having fun, but wondering aloud about what the show was, and how could they see it (I didn't have the heart to tell them, 1:30 AM on your resort TV!).

    All-in-all, I would try to get down to see it ASAP. This year, at any rate. I can't see it lasting, because of the sheer number of people they have running it. Legions of Team Possible workers, in spiffy purple-and-black tunics, looking for all the world like Star Trek: Next Generation outfits.

    I'm happy to answer whatever questions people have...

    Badical!

    Perhaps the merchandise is still in production - or they could import from Germany!

    Weird - I would've thought the computerization would mean they'd near relatively few people.

    Ugh, see, this is why they should've stuck with the old outfits; Kim's original look was cool.

    Actually, they come off a bit like Global Justice people assigned to support Kim.

    Wow sounds awesome. I'm heading down that way, and hoping to try out at least two or three of them.

    Do you get assigned a group of people or can you go on your own?

    You go on your own. A large group can get several Kimmunicators, all tuned to the same mission.
