puts you aboard an aircraft whose mission is to fly into the middle of a
violent storm and dissipate the storm with a missile-shaped device
called a "FUSE." As you might expect, there are quite a few surprises
along the way.
At its core, StormRider is a full-motion-flight-simulator-based
attraction, very much like Star Tours.
The aircraft you're riding in is fictional of course, and as you board
you'll find a view screen at the front with a forward-looking view of
the action. StormRider goes a step beyond Star Tours however, and
introduces some surprise special effects (which I won't go into here so
as not to spoil the surprise).
Before you board the aircraft there is a "pre-show" which introduces
you to the aforementioned FUSE missile and gives you a rough idea of
what to expect once you're aboard. The pre-show (and your
pilot's dialog aboard the aircraft) are in Japanese.
This attraction is a lot of fun. The ride vehicles hold many more people
than the Star Tours' vehicles do, and the ride motion seemed less
Star Tours—although still pretty wild. The added special effects are
immersive, enhancing the overall experience considerably. This is an
attraction that should not be missed, even by modest thrill-seekers.
