    The new Sum of all Thrills is a simulator attraction that allows you to create a ride design, and then get onto a robot arm mounted simulator pod to test drive the attraction!

    The height requirement is confirmed to be 48" if a ride profile with no inversions is chosen, and 54" with inversions.

    The ride is now open in EPCOT Innoventions

    How do they control the height requirement once the person is in, I wonder?

    Yep, sounds that way. Cyber space mountain, or big thunder mountain railroad, or... what'evah.

    We saw this yesterday, I can't remember if there was a height restriction or not, there were some warnings though. I have some photos and information on it but it's all packed in the case which is on the truck at DTD

    From what I can remember, you design your ride, then two people can sit side by side and a cover comes down over the front of them - not so good if you are claustrophobic The robotics arm then moves all over the place, sideways, up and down, forwards and backwards. All the while you are watching the ride you designed on the screen in front of you in you "pod"









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Yeah, I will never be able to do this as I am way claustrophobic in those pod things. Found out the hard way at a NASCAR Cafe' once in Myrtle Beach. I always knew I was to a point but that was when I realized I crossed over to the bad point. I'm not so bad, though, I can't ride in an elevator, hehehe.

    But this & Mission Earth won't be experiened by me anytime soon

    It does sound exactly like CyberSpace Mountain doesn't it - we'll have to try it next year.

    Wonder if that means they are finally going to close down DQ?
