Two days ago, Estelle at This Happy Place Blog posted a wonderful look back at her family's past Epcot visits, which included a great picture of the Forced Perspective Room in Wonders of Life's Sensory Funhouse. Since a lot of Disney fans never got a chance to see that great magic trick in person, here are a couple of shots from my family's '93 vacation showing the Forced Perspective Room in action.
You viewed the scene through a narrow slot, which kept you from seeing that the room was far more distorted than it seemed, forcing the viewer's eye to judge height based on completely misleading points of reference.
Between Cranium Command, Body Wars and the Sensory Funhouse, we could (and did) easily spend hours in Wonders of Life -- and that's not including time for the Pavilion's other attractions!
The place felt bright, cheerful and energetic. Wonders of Life helped make Epcot our favorite destination at Walt Disney World.
