The Sum of All Thrills is an attraction at Epcot. Sponsored by Raytheon, the ride lets park guests custom-design their own thrill ride using mathematical tools, an innovative touch-screen table and a robotic simulator.
It opened to the public on October 14, 2009 as the first ride to be located within INNOVENTIONS at Epcot.
Guests design a thrill ride using an interactive touch screen that lets them determine height and speed while adding features such as dips and corkscrew turns. Once "built", guests climb aboard their customized design in the 4-D robotic simulator that uses sight, sound and movement to give them a realistic experience.
The first-ever Innoventions ride at Epcot Theme Park, The Sum of all Thrills, presented by Raytheon, is a simulated thrill ride. The ride lets guests use a computer program to specify the drops, curves, and loops of a coaster track before boarding an industrial robotic arm to experience their creation. Three vehicle options are available: bobsled, roller coaster, and jet aircraft. It's possible to program actual loops into both the coaster and jet courses, and the robot arm will swing the rider upside down.
In addition to the vehicle, guests also select the kinds of turns, loops, and hills in their track design. Choices range from mild, broad curves to extreme multiple-loop inversions. Using computer-design tools, they can further customize these components by changing the height and width of each piece.
