  • In addition, Habit Heroes has reopened from it’s retooling after it received criticism for being insensitive to those who are over-weight.  The new exhibit features a brand new storyline that helps to teach kids to defeat unhealthy habits.   Guests have the ability to become super heroes by building the healthy habit potential they personally have inside them.  Three different training experiences will be available for guests to partake in during their experience with the attraction.  In addition, there are three enemies that guests will be taking on:  Poor Nutrition, Dehydration, and Inactivity.  The message is now that we all have to work together to save the world from these bad habits.
