- Dummied Out: Near the end of its run, Ellen's animatronic vanished from the ride. The dinosaur that once attacked her attacked nothing for the rest of the ride's lifespan.
- Mythology Gag: During the "Jeopardy!" Thinking Music sequence, an announcer states "Energy, you make the world go round!" This is the name of the song in the original ride's pre-show.
- Obvious Beta: During the period between the closing of the original Universe of Energy and this ride, the original ride had to reopen to absorb crowds during 1996 as Test Track had not yet opened. This contained a version with toned down effects of the original ride and deactivated effects of the upcoming version playing side by side.
- Unintentional Period Piece: Alex Trebek still having a mustache puts this attraction before 2001, Ellen's outfit shouts The '90s, Bill Nye is in his classic TV show outfit, and some of the technology has aged.
