A new exhibit has opened into a “test and adjust” phase at Innoventions in Disney’s Epcot theme park. This new attraction depicts what happens to a typical Florida neighborhood during a hurricane via a computer-generated 3D film. Following the film, guests have the opportunity to make choices on how to build and prepare a house for a large storm, including what style of roof and whether or not to leave the windows open or closed during the storm.
Here are a few photos of the exhibit:
This wild house is the entrance to StormStruck.
3D glasses are provided for every guest.
A light flickers outside the entrance.
Guests look out “windows” of a house into the surrounding neighborhood. The 3D projections, along with surrounding sounds and a few in-theater effects provide a realistic view of what goes on during a hurricane.
Following the storm, guests make choices via two buttons underneath LCD screens in front of their seats to determine the best way to ready a house for a large storm.
The post-show area was closed off today as Disney was filming there.
