Sum of All Thrills

Scouts can build their own theme park ride!

Visit Epcots Innovention building and stop by Sum of All Thrills.  This is where scouts and their ride partner will take a turn in the Designer Lab creating their one-of-a-kind ride experience. Using an interactive touchscreen design panel, scouts can add drops, barrel rolls, twists and turns using their math, science and engineering know how. During the testing phase, adjust height, velocity and follow other recommendations to modify your ride experience based on mild to wild settings.

Once your ride design has been locked into the system, head up a short flight of stairs while your ride specifications are programmed into a 4-D robotic simulator. Buckle-up and get ready to feel every bump, twist and drop of the ultimate ride you just created – complete with the realism of high-definition video, audio and motion.

Want a little more Disney magic? After your ride, you’ll receive a card with your one-of-a-kind ride experience program. Visit MathMovesU to replay your ride on your home pc. Not visiting the parks soon enough? The MathMovesU site also has an online Design Your Own Ride and Game experience scouts may want to check out.
