Well, Maybe I Can Do Without Cyberspace Mountain After All

15 Oct

The one thing I hate about the idea that DisneyQuest will probably eventually close is that I fear they won’t move Cyberspace Mountain, but just let it die. I love Cyberspace Mountain, and was sad this summer that it’s gone from Walt Disney Studios Paris. Bill Nye in French, how can you argue with that?

But….looks like they might have me covered, what with the new The Sum of All Thrills design-your-own-roller-coaster attraction coming soon to Epcot. And being a geek, I’m intrigued by the math angle they seem to be working. From Raytheon’s press release:

“The Sum of All Thrills” will be a core component of Raytheon’s MathMovesU program, an initiative designed to engage middle school students in math and science, and help create the next generation of innovators for the U.S. It will be located in the INNOVENTIONS pavilion at Epcot, a unique area of the park that contains 100,000 square feet of interactive, hands-on exhibits that allow visitors to celebrate the inspiration and innovation that improve their lives and expand their horizons.

If you’re not a nerd, you might find the photo in the Orlando Sentinel a little sexier.

    I’m glad you love cyberspace mountain. I’m always wondering if it is still open, still running, etc. I was the lead developer on it. I also did the localization for EuroDisney and re-doing Bill Nye in French was NOT fun.

    Paul, thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment! I cannot even tell you how disappointed my son and I were when we found Cyberspace Mountain was gone from Disneyland Paris. Cyberspace Mountain is still one of only two must-dos at Disney Quest for me (the other being Pirates of the Caribbean).

    Thank you for making the magic for us, Paul!
