Sum of all Thrills presented by Raytheon, Now Open in Innoventions East at Epcot: Full Photo and Video coverage

Hi everyone!

I had the pleasure of being one of the first to try the new attraction “The Sum of All Thrills” in Epcot’s Innoventions East. Sponsored by Raytheon, it’s similar to Cyberspace Mountain at DisneyQuest in that it’s a simulator where you are able to design your own ride. The attraction marquee is brightly lit (below, left) and there are test seats for those who may not fit. (below, right). The seats are on the narrow side, and there can be a height issue as well as a width issue for riding.

Warnings are posted for the attraction (below, left). Before entering the briefing room, you get a card that stores your ride information (below, right). You get to take the card with you at the end to continue your Sum of All Thrills experience from home.

The Briefing Room is where you learn about designing your ride experience in video (below left and right).

The Design Room (below left and right), where each guest from the briefing room gets to choose their ride vehicle (Bobsled, Roller Coaster or Fighter Jet), speed and movement for the ride.

Before getting on the ride, some final instructions are shown (below, left). The ride itself (below, right) can move as many as 194 guests through an hour, though we were told it wasn’t yet close to that.
