Each section of the 12,000 square-foot exhibition puts visitors in command of one of the interlocking aspects of animated filmmaking that brings Pixar’s worlds so vividly to life. You can tweak lighting, shapes, the joints of animated bodies, the factors that influence the growth of virtual vegetation, and the many textures and surface skins that can be applied to animate and inanimate digital objects. Kids will be thrilled at this magical power, and will be completely absorbed in experimenting to see how real animators achieve different results.

Formerly called Escape Key, the rooms at 60out in West L.A. (other locations in Hollywood, Melrose and Marina del Rey) feature a game master/magician that stays in play throughout your hour to keep you clued in and entertained.

The sets are fun and creative with unusual moving parts and not your usual lock-combo decoding tasks.
