Kids put 'G-Force Experience' to test

Hollywood Wrap with George Pennacchio

The new family film "G-Force" opened Friday, and one enthusiastic group of kids got to try out the new "G-Force Experience" in Hollywood. So what did they think?There is plenty of animated action in the new 3-D family film, "G-Force." And if you see it at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, when the movie is over the fun continues across the street at the "G-Force Experience."

I assembled my own "George-Force" to check it out.

The "G-Force Experience" is packed with one thing after another for children to enjoy. That includes all sorts of challenges to test your motor skills, plus target practice with appliances that turn into monsters, special photo opportunities, and the Gizmo Derby (Tester Emily's favorite).

There are even crafts if you're ready to take a break from all the running around.

Tester Justin did a lot of running around -- sometimes with animated cockroaches.

"There's like this bug thing that you jump on to try and get the bugs, and there's like this race track," said Justin. "And there was like that playground."

Brothers Matthew and Andrew got a surprise invitation to check this out before heading home to Boston.

"You're going to love this place," said Matthew. "It's just amazing. It's just so fun."

"It's like a big playground except inside, it's the "G-Force" theme, and it's obstacle courses, video games, all stuff that's based on "G-Force," said Andrew.

The boys were talkers. The girls? Not so much. When asked how she liked it, tester Elora was speechless.

There's nothing here too scary for kids -- with the exception of George's camera and microphone.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
