StormRider was a simulator ride at Tokyo DisneySea. It simulated going into a weather storm in a futuristic airplane (a "StormRider") to dissipate the storm. The attraction opened on September 4, 2001, in the Port Discovery land of Tokyo DisneySea. The attraction closed on May 17, 2016 and will be replaced by a new Finding Nemo/Finding Dory simulator ride, which will open in spring 2017.
With its copper roofs and mechanical devices, the attraction building—the "Center for Weather Control"—is themed to a futuristic, almost Victorian era, laboratory. Guests enter a motion simulator (a "StormRider") and are dispatched into a storm to deliver a storm-dissipating device called a "Fuse". The ride is explained in Japanese, with English subtitles on an LCD screen. During the ride, problems are encountered while trying to transport the Fuse.
