More on the Original Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
If you have never seen the original Walt Disney Pictures 1989 movie, you can read a synopsis below:
When kids sneak into inventor Wayne Szalinski’s (Rick Moranis) upstairs lab to retrieve an errant baseball, his experimental shrink ray miniaturizes them. When Szalinski returns home, he destroys the device — which he thinks is a failure — and dumps it in the trash, throwing out the kids along with it. The four children, now 1/4-inch tall, must survive the journey back to the house through a yard where sprinklers bring treacherous storms and garden-variety ants stampede like elephants.

The playground was built to make you feel as if you experienced the shrinking machine. You felt as though you were in the film as one of the kids, which was awesome!
