While at InspectionWorld, Visit Stormstruck


StormStruck™ A Tale of Two Homes™ enables guests from around the world to experience the power of a weather event while learning how to best prepare for floods, hail, high winds, lightning and more. The exhibit features a spectacular, simulated, 4-D weather experience that combines a variety of weather hazards into one “storm.” After guests have experienced the storm, they learn about cutting-edge scientific research and new construction technologies that can protect their homes.

The INNOVENTIONS attraction, located in the heart of Epcot® at the Walt Disney World® Resort, is more than 100,000 square feet of hands-on, interactive exhibits where visitors can celebrate the innovations that improve their lives and expand their horizons. The weather-related experience is located in INNOVENTIONS East, one of two buildings in the pavilion at Epcot®.

The nonprofit Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, Inc. – FLASH®,  RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd. and its U.S. affiliate WeatherPredict Consulting Inc., Simpson Strong-Tie and State Farm opened StormStruck in August 2008. The interactive educational exhibit quickly became a crowd favorite.

To get a preview of what you can experience, visit and get ready to be blown away.
