Jeopardy Contestant Credits Former Ellen’s Energy Adventure Attraction for Sparking Interest in Game Show

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

Uh, what is brain power, Alex? Tonight’s Jeopardy game show had a fun moment for fans of the Disney World theme parks. Contestant Ben Coller was asked by host Mayim Bialik what his introduction to Jeopardy was. Coller answered that his interest in the game show was sparked by a trip to EPCOT as a child and a ride on the Ellen’s Energy Adventure attraction.

On the attraction, which you can watch in its entirety below, Ellen DeGeneres dreams that she is on the game show Jeopardy and ends up learning about various types of energy resources. This attraction had a profound impact on Coller, who recalls returning from his family vacation and telling his parents how great the ride was. His parents then told him that Jeopardy was a real show that he could watch nightly and he then got into Jeopardy thanks to how much he enjoyed the Ellen’s Energy Adventure attraction.

Ellen’s Energy Adventure was replaced recently by Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, but there are still some Easter Eggs that reference the old ride. Check out our article below to learn more!
