This past week, Innoventions took a step in bringing back the classic "edutainment" feel of Epcot by adding The SpectacuLAB presented by muRata. Colortopia, the last remaining piece of Innoventions, has a new neighbor taking over House of the Future area and, with a partnership between Disney, muRata, and Science from Scientists, this show is a fun place to go and open your mind for a few minutes!
We were lucky enough to be invited to the Grand Opening of this new, family-friendly attraction and had a few great moments meeting the people behind this show along with Frankie the Intern.
This 25-minute show is a great addition to the park; it gives families a nice place to sit and enjoy some edutainment that will hopefully spark the minds of those young and young at heart to look into science.
The show introduces us to Frankie the Intern (I believe that is all one name) along with two scientists from muRata who go over some very simple experiments. These reminded me of being a kid and watching Mr. Wizard on television after school each day but was way more fun.
The SpectacuLAB is open seven days a week — just check your show schedule or Walt Disney World app for showtimes.
