While watching the video, the one memory that was brought back to life was that of Communicore. I had forgotten how fun that area was with its cheesy (but cute) touch screen computer games like the roller coaster builder and the American flag assembly line game. And SMRT-1, the talking robot! I remember the first time I went up to the SMRT-1 exhibit at Communicore, I was so shy that I couldn’t even talk into the phone to answer “yes” or “no” to SMRT-1.
Mandel is inspired by his recently received Extinct Attraction DVDs to write about his memories of the park in its early days.
