Synopsis/Details: 

Craig Hunter’s not been having the best of times recently. Once a cutting edge robotics expert, his job at Fisco Toys has turned into a drag. And his family life isn’t so great, either. His 13 year old tom-boy daughter, Sandy, isn’t adjusting to middle school well – a fact made even worse by her socially popular sister, Nina. But things are about to get interesting for the Hunter family.

A letter arrives for Sandy, announcing that she and her family have been chosen for a trip to Mekka World Park – a new theme island owned by eccentric billionaire Sidney Mekka. Upon arrival, the Hunter family meets Sidney Mekka… an eccentric chap that could give Willy Wonka a run for his money (and Artie - his robotic lemur shaped sidekick.)

Along with two other families, the enraptured Hunters tour the island and its fantasy parks. All seems perfect... except for a few small glitches. But when the robots revolt, all hell breaks loose - leaving the children stranded and fighting for their (and their parents') lives!
