Turtle Talk with Crush - EPCOT
If you have small children on holiday with you in Florida this is a must-see. They will just love it! Mind you, our own children are all grown up now and they enjoyed it just as much as the little ones and I must admit we will definitely be going back to visit with the surfer dude sea turtle next time we are in Orlando.
“Turtle Talk with Crush” is an interactive show the likes of which you will never, ever have seen before. Guests are taken into a room with bench-like seats and the children are encouraged to sit at the front, on the floor, so that they can get the best view. In front on you is a large window which looks into the ocean. A cast member from Disney asks all the children to call for Crush to appear. The surfer dude sea turtle from the Disney film “Finding Nemo” swims in and the most incredible show begins.
The children are asked if they have any questions for Crush. This is when the fun starts because Crush really does interact with the audience, asking them their names and then repeating it back to them, he even moves around the screen so that he is opposite whoever he is speaking to. He would say something like “Hey you there, the boy with the red sweater sitting at the front, what’s your name?” His facial expressions change in line with what is being said and his voice sounds exactly like the one in the film. What is great about this show is that no two shows will ever be the same as it all depends on what questions the children ask Crush. This unique show lasts about ten to fifteen minutes which is probably about the right length of time for Crush to ask his questions, tell the audience about turtle life and for the lines outside not to become too long. It would be a real shame if families had to leave the line because their children had become bored waiting for their turn.
The technology for this show will leave you amazed. When we came out of the theatre you could hear everyone asking the same question “How do they do that?”. I have no idea but who cares, this really is one superb, entertaining show which adults as well as children will be returning to year after year. I know we certainly will!
