Seeing This Attraction May Save Your Life

By C. MacDonald

Buena Park, CA-Going through the new "Bodies-The Exhibition" attraction may save your life. Using real human body specimens, this exciting new attraction shows an actual smoker's lung and a healthy lung. It shows the damage caused to organs by overeating and lack of exercise. What it does, in a surprisingly tasteful manner, is really get you thinking about your own body. Chances are it will empower you to change the way you live, the way you exercise, the way you eat and the way you view your body.

"This allows the public to learn about the inner workings of the body, just like the medical community has for years," explained Dr. Roy Glover, Professor Emeritus of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Michigan and the Chief Medical Director for the Bodies exhibition. "We want to educate people about their own bodies, so they'll understand and better care for themselves. They'll learn the body never lies—it always tells the truth."

That's what you'll find out by visiting this truly amazing attraction inside the old Movieland Wax Museum. Over 200 actual human bodies and specimens (donated to, and still belonging to Chinese medical schools, where they were meticulously dissected and preserved) are respectfully displayed.

The human specimens, that provide a visual textbook to your own body, are preserved through a revolutionary technique called "polymer preservation," where human tissue is permanently preserved using liquid silicone rubber that's treated and hardened. The rubberized specimen, preserved to the cellular level, showcases the body's bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and organs.

Chances are you'll never see your body the same again. You'll also learn how the liver is the only organ that can regenerate itself without a scar. If all your body muscles worked together, you could lift more than 10 tons. Faster than the world's most powerful computer, the human nervous system uses billions of interconnected nerve cells to regulate all the body's vital functions while also serving as the seat of all thought and feeling. There are more than 100,000 miles of blood vessels in the body. The brain requires 20% of the body's total blood supply.

You'll marvel at the unprecedented, unique look into the complex human body and be inspired by its inner beauty. The magnificent displays, combined with music and special lighting, give a seldom scene, realistic view of every aspect of the body. Galleries focus on the skeletal, muscular, reproductive, circulatory and other body systems. The exhibits sometimes offer a 3D dimension, giving you an overall look and better understanding of what you see.

We highly recommend you see this incredible attraction, made possible by Premier Exhibitions, Inc., who leased the Movieland Wax Museum site at 7711 Beach Blvd., Buena Park. Find out more at
