Innoventions East and West is a 2-building pavilion and interactive play space for kids of all ages. Guest are able to use their imagination, invent, inquire and be inspired while exploring amazing innovations that make our lives better.

Exhibits found in Innoventions East:

  • Sum of all Thrills – Test your imagination by designing a thrill ride using an interactive touch screen that lets you determine height and speed while adding features such as dips and corkscrew turns. Once “built,” climb aboard your very own design in the 4-D robotic simulator that uses sight, sound and movement to give you a realistic experience.

Height restrictions of 48 inches to ride and 54 inches to invert on the ride

  • StormStruck – Have you ever wanted to experience what it feels like to be in the perfect storm? StormStruck offers guests a way to experience the “perfect storm” as guests are simulated in a hurricane and discover important ways to protect your home and family in cases of severe weather. This simulation helps guests to understand the weather, storms and their damage and how to prepare for a hurricane or intense storm. While taking a short interactive video quiz you will learn valuable tips on how to protect your house and family in the event of a hurricane or intense storm. You will feel like you are in the middle of the storm with the special effects of wind and water swirling around you. There is a children’s play area where children can compete while gathering items to have during a storm. This area also allows for a child swap which may be needed as this simulation is very dark with loud noises and special effects.
