Dips, dives, loops and barrel rolls await guests as Raytheon’s Sum of all Thrills celebrates its fourth anniversary in INNOVENTIONS at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Sum of all Thrills™ is a one-of-a-kind experience that lets children of all ages custom-design their own virtual thrill ride using math fundamentals to calculate variables such as acceleration and velocity. Once the design is complete, participants can immediately experience their creation in a 3-D robotic simulator. Park guests can join the conversation anytime on Twitter at#SumofAllThrills.
Since its debut in October 2009, guests visiting INNOVENTIONS Attraction at Epcot have enjoyed the thrill of virtual roller coaster rides, jet-fighter planes or bobsled runs. Riders dip and dive through loops, turns and barrel rolls while learning about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Raytheon’s online Sum of all Thrills game invites students, especially middle school students, to create and enjoy the excitement of the experience via their home and school computers.
