New Coaster simulator at Epcot

Raytheon has a new rollar coaster simulator exhibit opening today at Epcot Innoventions.  It's called "Sum of All Thrills".  Hmmm, wonder how close this is to my son's favorite Cyberspace Mountain at DisneyQuest?

The ride begins, after a tutorial, in a design room. On a touchscreen computer, visitors pick a vehicle shape and determine how fast the ride should go based on ascent, inversions or corkscrews.
The information is saved on a magnetized card strip and fed into the simulator, where visitors experience the track they just designed. The cards are imprinted with numerical identifiers kids can use at home for a Raytheon educational Web site with more math and science problems.
