“I’m Mage, the person who watches over Imageworks! Nice to meet you all!”


-Imageworks: 1982-1998-


-This is Mage, the lovely character from @munchiezxx comic Future Worlders, which you can see on Tapas! It’s good so far, I think you should check it out! It’s about Epcot center, and the character designs are fantastic, along with the story! My favorite design has to be the design for Mage, in my opinion.-

-So, Imageworks is the upper part of the imagination pavilion at Epcot! It was abandoned for a while, before a part of it was put as a DVC lounge. The rest sits abandoned, some of the structures removed from the building forever. I hope it gets turned into something, because it really needs an update.-

-Anyways, it’s Epcot’s 35th birthday today! I hope it has a good day, Adams goes for everyone at the park), and I wish it gets better as time goes on in the future(world)!-

(Also please don’t die for me you’re too good to die)

( @munchiezxx I’m sorry it didn’t work the first time I hope it works now)

Remembering the original “Image Works” at Epcot’s Imagination Pavilion. 

From 1983-1998 you could visit a magical place in Epcot’s Imagination Pavilion called the “Image Works” Yes, I know there is currently “Imageworks: The What If Labs” in the Imagination Pavilion, but it is not the original and doesn’t even come close to being as amazing as its predecessor. The original was located at the top level of the pavilion allowing guests an outside view through the glass pyramid. The beautifully designed spiral staircase and glass elevator which took you to the “Image Works” is still there and can be seen in the current Imagination store.At the top of this staircase/elevator you would enter the “Image Works”, a place where guests could test their imaginations. At the heart of this creative playground was the Rainbow Corridor/Sensor Maze, a colorful tunnel of neon that changed colors as you walked through. The “Image Works” also included: Figment’s Coloring Book, Magic Palettes, Light Writers, Stepping Tones, Pin Screens, Bubble Music, Dreamfinder’s School of Drama, Giant Kaleidoscopes, Image Warp, Lumia and Electronic Philharmonic. The “Image Works” closed on October 10, 1998. The new “Imageworks: The What If Labs” opened on October 1, 1999, in the new downstairs location. Sadly, the whole upstairs area that housed the original “Image Works” is now closed. Check out the awesome video posted here for a look at the sad current state of the “Image Works” next to footage from back in the day.
