History and Trivia

  • At this location: Though not opened until 1989, the Wonders of Life Pavilion is the first resident of this location, and Cranium Command has been in place since then.
  • The Attraction's History: A health and fitness pavilion was always in the plan for Epcot, but it was several years before a corporate sponsor could be found to finance construction. Eventually Metropolitan Life Insurance Company signed on and the pavilion was quickly built and opened October 19, 1989. MetLife ended their sponsorship in 2001 and since then the pavilion has been more of an afterthought and in early 2004 began to only open on peak attendance days. Cranium Command itself remains unchanged since it opened.
  • Other Trivia:
    • Sponsors: Metropolitan Life Insurance Company sponsored Body Wars and the entire Wonders of Life pavilion from October 19, 1989, to June 10, 2001.
