A new online game has been released based on Epcot's Sum of all Thrills ride, enabling players to design their own theme park ride at home.
The Raytheon Company, which sponsors Sum of all Thrills, has launched the educational game at MathMovesU.com. Like the Epcot attraction, it is designed to show that basic skills picked up at school can be applied to stunning engineering feats such as roller coasters. Players can create their coasters, as well as jet plane or bobsled rides, and share these with friends via Facebook.
In the physical version of Sum of all Thrills in Epcot's Innoventions Pavilion, visitors are able to "ride" their creations in one of four Kuka RoboSim 4-D Simulators. The online game will allow rides created at the park to be viewed online after guests return home.
The Sum of all Thrills attraction, opened in 2009, seats guests in pairs on a robotic arm that was originally designed for industrial use. A simular arm is used as part of the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride at Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
