August 13, 2017 – The Attraction Ellen’s Energy Adventure Closes

“Let me get this straight: you brought me back billions of years so you could show me…nothing?”

On August 13, 2017, the Epcot attraction Ellen’s Energy Adventure officially closed. Opening on September 15, 1996, the attraction was located in the Universe of Energy and featured a mix of a film and audio-animatronics, hosted by comedienne Ellen DeGeneres. Originally replacing the Universe of Energy attraction, this updated attraction also featured Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” Jamie Lee Curtis, Alex Trebek, and Johnny Gilbert, teaching guests about how energy is produced, the current sources of energy, and the search for new, renewable sources of energy. Guests sit in a special seating area and watch a series of films, as well as an audio-animatronic diorama featuring a primeval world; the seating sections split apart at this point to move through the diorama before reassembling for the final two films. The attraction was closed to make way for a new Guardians of the Galaxy-themed roller coaster attraction.
