      A few years ago, you had an exhibit for the animated show "Robots" which we really enjoyed; however, I think we had the most fun in the ball area. I'm not sure what it was called, but it's where the balls get sucked up into the different tubes and then travel back down in a Rube Goldberg sort of way.
