Sum of All Thrills - a kids review

We have been to Disney numerous times.  I like to think of myself as an expert.  That I've done it all.  But that is not quite the reality.  Even after all these trips, there are LOTS of things that I've never seen.  There are so many fantastic little details at Disney, it's almost impossible to see it all.  But it makes me oh so happy to keep trying!

Last summer when we went, I had a list of things that we HAD to do.  And one of those things was to finally go inside of the Innoventions buildings at EPCOT.  In these buildings are interactive exhibits and games  - things like "Storm Struck" where you get to feel what it's like to be in a major storm;  "The Great Piggy Bank Adventure" where you play a really fun game to learn some financial planning (and this game deserves its own post!)

 And then there is the "Sum of all Thrills" - where you get to design and ride your own roller coaster.

This is a review of the "Sum of All Thrills" from my 10 year old - Madalyn:

Have you ever ridden a roller coaster and thought it was boring?  Did you want to change it?  Well in this adventure located in Epcot, you can create your own roller coaster!  From turtle slow to rabbit fast in just a click of a button!

After you choose your speed, you can start by choosing the first part of your ride.  You can choose from a straight line to a large loop.  One of the best parts is that you can increase your speed and your height.  After you finish designing your ride, you swipe a special card in a slot - then you take that card to a Cast member.  

That cast member will swipe your card, help you into a machine, 

and "POOF" you can ride the ride you just designed!

So...what about you?  Have you been in Innoventions?  Do you or your kids like roller coasters?

  1. Bangladesh is a great place to visit, especially at a discount! I've been there once before and I absolutely loved it! . It has numerous sources of natural beauty, marvelous places and sceneries.



Thanks so much for saying "hello!" I like to know that I am not talking to myself :-)
