Guests board a train in the shape of Heimlich, he narrates the ride through the speakers on the train. Heimlich's tendency to overeat is the theme of the ride, as the train appears to eat through oversized portion of human foods: candy corn, animal crackers, carrots, Brussels sprouts and watermelon. Appropriate scents accompany the giant food sets so guests can sniff to attract them. Large bites have been taken out of all the foods, so you can tell that Heimlich has been there before. At the end of the ride, Heimlich bids guests farewell and reminds them to eat their fruits and vegetables.
