Innoventions

Innoventions is a 2-building pavilion and interactive play space for kids of all ages where you can imagine, invent, inquire and be inspired while exploring amazing innovations that make our lives better. Get a fun lesson in fire safety as you compete against other Guests through the "most dangerous house in America." Meet your personal investment guide (PIG), who will lead you to your financial goal. Push the limits of  everyday products as you test their safety (yes, some slamming, smashing and bashing is involved) or create and experience your very own thrill ride. Around here, a little imagination goes a long way! Where will yours take you? Exhibits located at 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. Guests must meet a minimum height requirement of 48 inches to ride and 54 inches to invert on the ride.
  • StormStruck –  Experience what it feels like to be in the perfect storm and discover important ways to protect your home and family in case of severe weather.
  • Test the Limits Lab – Treat yourself to a safety test where you are invited to shatter, drop and impact some of the products you use at home every day. Enjoy a short film hosted by Timon and Pumbaa and learn how to be "safety smart."
