Timmy and feeling sorry for him goes and tracks him down to ask him
to come to the show, but when she finds him she realizes he is
blind. The rest of the Metal Men and Doc Magnus arrive and Timmy
feels them all so that he can 'see' them. With his mother permission
Timmy goes to spend the day with the Metal Men. Doc Magnus feels for
the boy and goes to the lab to try and develop a compound to restore
the boys sight.
Timmy Lifts Off
|Meanwhile the Metal Men take Timmy to
their rocket and blast off into space for a short ride, but the
rocket gets caught in vast cosmic turbulence and Platinum forms a
web around Timmy to stop him getting hurt. Eventually the titanic
turbulence subsides and the Metal Men realize that they are far from
the own galaxy . They land on a planet that has a breathable
atmosphere and find a strange deserted planetary amusement park.
They enter the roller coaster which suddenly
starts up and Timmy is delighted but all of a sudden the
roller coaster comes to life and tries to trap them
The Ferris Wheel Attacks
The Metal Men fight their way off but suddenly the next ride attacks them and Iron and Lead form rockets to smash the aerial bombardment. Next the Ferris Wheel attacks and combining skills Mercury, Iron and Lead send it spinning into space.
The Metal Men leading Timmy try to escape the
Playground of Terror but as they pass the flash photography
display the flash goes off blinding the group. As the Metal Men
stumble around helpless the Playground of Terror moves into to
destroy them. Timmy takes control of the group and leads them back
to the spaceship where the playground approaches them like a tidal
wave of terror
