Review: Journey Into Imagination with Figment

This could be tilted the “Many Transformations of Figment” since it is the third incarnation of the attraction. Dr. Nigel Channing of the Imagination Institute takes guests on a tour of the open house. Figment makes an appearance and causes various levels of mischief along the way. You will be humming One Little Spark afterwards because it is on repeat throughout the whole ride.

 

The Low Down:

Opened: June 2, 2002 (Replaced Journey Into Your Imagination)

Location: Epcot – Imagination Pavilion

Type: Dark ride

Length: 6 minutes

FastPass: The ride loads pretty quickly so FP+ is not really needed here.

Kid Factor: High. Families love.. Two tiny wings, eyes big and yellow. Horn of a steer, but a lovable fellow. From head to tail, he’s royal purple pigment. And there, viola!, you’ve got a Figment! This is a silly and potential stinky ride. Think Stitch’s Great Escape for Epcot. The post-area ImageWorks is an interactive area to “use your own imagination.” That means kids are burning off a ton of energy by running, jumping and screaming.

Highlights: If you’re a fan of Figment you may either cry or laugh. The disappearing butterfly may make you question your sanity.

Overall: This is a definite “ride it once” attraction. The older generation of fans (like me) will complain about how Journey Into Imagination is not the same without Dreamfinder. It’s plain weird and filled with cheap gags (SKUNK!). The attraction exits out into ImageWorks which may actually be better than the ride itself. You can create your own Figment. Somewhere there is a pinkĀ  Figment-like nightmare named Theresa roaming around the interwebs.

Final Verdict: 2.5 out of 5 stars
