October 19, 1989 – The Attraction Cranium Command Opens in Epcot’s Future World
“Your job, if you can cut it, is to run the most sophisticated information system ever devised.”
On October 19, 1989, the attraction Cranium Command opened as part of the Wonders of Life pavilion in Epcot’s Future World. Like many attractions within Epcot, this was an educational attraction that taught guests about how the brain worked. Guests sit in an auditorium that acts as a “control center” for the brain of a 12-year-old boy named Bobby, and observe as rookie Buzzy is given the controls by General Knowledge. The film was directed by Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale, who would go on to direct Beauty and the Beast, and starred George Wendt, Dana Carvey, Charles Grodin, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Kevin Nealon. The attraction closed on January 1, 2007.
