After a briefing of your mission, a video introduction of the captain and a rundown of the technical features of your vessel, you board the futuristic StormRider for a trip inside a Category 5 storm (typhoon). Your mission is to collect storm data and destroy the vortex with the ship's storm diffuser (a detonator).

As the mission leader guarantees, the ship is 100% safe. But, of course, then something goes terribly wrong....


Woah. Wasn't expecting this. Think a larger version of Star Tours, mixed with Stitch's Great Escape, mixed with It's Tough To Be A Bug. Live preshows are always fun, and then you sit in a large stormrider vehicle and it's essentially a motion ride, with some clever projected screens on the side door windows to make you feel like you're in the environment. Soon it starts stormin' outside and things go awry. This ride can actually be quite frightful for younger riders..I would have been really scared had I ridden this as a kid. (I was clutching the seat even now..didn't know what was coming next!) And there is the element of live props that I wont spoil for you, but I let out a "woah!". Then it starts to rain in the theater and it's not just a little spray of water..a good amount of water sprays on you! This was a surprising ride, and afterwards I was amused and overwhelmed by the a good way. Definitely one not to miss. Sure it's a little dated it seems, but wow! Go in not knowing what to expect and then let it ride!
