Discovery Place 046

User inside the Hurricane Simulator

The Hurricane Simulator in Discovery Place, Charlotte NC resembles a Category 1 hurricane. Category 1 is around 78.5 MPH. If the machine forced winds of Category 2 or higher, the person inside it would be blowing around like the inside of a tornado! When you step inside the glass “tube”, you will hear a beeping noise and feel very strong air going around 1 MPH. Then, a screen will come on showing your current speed. Guess what happens? You reach 78.5 Mile winds and you start blowing like crazy! Any stronger and it wouldn’t be safe. And don’t worry, you can open the door if you feel uncomfortable.
