Honey, I Shrunk the Audience

This attraction is permanently closed. This page is retained here for historical interest.

This interactive movie replaced the Michael Jackson film Captain EO. This 3-D film continues the characters from the Honey… series of movies. Rick Moranis works at the Imagination Institute and has invented a machine that miniaturizes things. Of course, the demonstration goes horribly awry and the entire audience is miniaturized. In addition to the three dimensional visual effects, the theater is rigged to make noices, poke audience members, and even run rodents across your feet.

At that time the theater was modified to add interactive elements and Honey, I Shrunk the Audience opened on November 21, 1994.
