Inspired by Disney Pixar's RATATOUILLE, a hilarious comedy about a rat named Remy who dreams of becoming a great French chef, the interactive experience will be highlighted by a thrilling "Big Cheese Slide" which will give kids an exciting ride down a 25' wedge of cheese. A Center Stage area features daily cooking demonstrations with a real chef featuring Tasty Treats and Healthy Snacks' for busy families as well as daily shows featuring Ratatouille Video Game demonstrations. Tour goers will also be able to see multiple making-of pieces at various kiosks.
The tour is being supported by a fantastic lineup of promotional partners. Tour goers can interact with Intel Corporation's roaming ambassador chefs, equipped with Intel(R) Centrino(R) Duo processor technology-based laptops using Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo processors, where they can take photos with the RATATOUILLE characters superimposed into the picture, play an interactive game or register for a chance to win an array of prizes. The tour chef's will feature recipes from the General Mills' portfolio of brands and attendees will be able to sample Chocolate Chex(R) cereal as available.
