‘Carbon-Freeze Me’ experience to debut at Star Wars Weekends 2012


Debuting at this years Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests will have the opportunity to relive the famous carbon freezing scene from The Empire Strikes Back with “Carbon-Freeze Me”. This new retail experience was created especially for Disney Parks.

Using imaging technology, this experience casts your likeness as a three-dimensional, eight-inch figurine inside the “Carbon Freezing Chamber”, which will be located adjacent to The American Idol Experience. Several cameras will capture your face and then the images are reconstructed in a computer for processing. After approximately four weeks, the completed 8-inch figurine representing Han Solo frozen in Carbon, but with your face, will be shipped to your house. Guests will also receive a light-up wristband.

Each carbonite figurine is $99.95, plus shipping and guests can order additional figurines using the same image scan for $74.95 each. Guests must be 3 and up and guests under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

The experience will start on Friday, May 18, the first day of Star Wars Weekends 2012. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 407-WDW-TECH (407-939-8324).
