The new Habit Heroes exhibited opened yesterday (3rd Feb) at Epcot. This interactive experience is presented by Florida Blue and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, encourages children to break bad habit such and live a healthier lifestyle. These bad habits manifest themselves as a series of super villains that you have to defeat including Duchess of Doom (Too Much Negativity), Cereal Killer (No Time for Breakfast), Sonic Boom (Blasting your Ears With Loud Music) and many other disgusting cohorts. There are some which adults might like to try and defeat too like Nicotina (Smoking) and Ice Cappuccino (Too much Caffeine) and one that I battle with constantly Insomnia.
From what I have seen so far online there are multiple mini game syou work your way through as a family, climaxing in a dance battle against Lead Bottom with help from your Habit Heroes Will and Callie who made a special live appearance for the launch. This video was posted up some during the previews on 1st Feb (youTube User:Milkdidmybodygood):
The fun doesn’t stop in the park so don’t worry if you can’t make it to Epcot these lifestyle nasties are all around us! You can play online selecting which of the bad guys you want to tackle and it sets you real life objectives you need achieve in order to defeat that enemy. Visit the Site http://www.habitheroes.com/ to sign up and keep track of your progress. They even have a mobile version so you and your family can keep on fighting the bad guys no matter where you are! I think this is a really great idea for families to enable them to tackle these issues together and spend more time as a family (which doesn’t alway center around the TV). Good Luck Heroes your mission begins today!
