ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) and his robotic friend, Bird, have embarked on the ultimate road trip and are featured in several new scenes in the attraction. Bird is a new character that was created just for the attraction.
Honda began its sponsorship of Autopia last spring when the attraction’s signage and vehicles got a makeover, including Honda colors and fuel-efficient engines for the cars.
ASIMO once appeared in his own show inside the former Innoventions building.
