Description And Comments
Located in Innoventions East, Sum of All Thrills is a design-your-own-roller-coaster simulator in which you use a computer program to specify the drops, curves, and loops of a coaster track before boarding an industrial robotic arm to experience your creation. Three vehicle options are available: bobsled, roller coaster, and jet aircraft. It's possible to program actual loops into both the coaster and jet courses, and the robot arm will swing you upside down.
In addition to the vehicle, you also select the kinds of turns, loops, and hills in your track design. Choices range from mild, broad curves to extreme multiple-loop inversions. Using computer-design tools, you can further customize these components by changing the height and width of each piece as you go. This customization makes it easy to ride Sum of All Thrills many times without experiencing the same track twice. It's a great addition to Epcot.
Note: Sum of All Thrills has a 48-inch height requirement, which increases to 54 inches if your track design includes an upside-down segment.
Not a high-capacity attraction, but also not on most guests' radar. Ride as early in the morning as possible.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Sum of All Thrills when you visit on a day with a given Epcot Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Sum of All Thrills Wait Times.
- This attraction has a minimum-height requirement of 48 inches.

A FAREWELL TO ARMS
The Kuka arms that drive Sum of All Thrills are incredibly cool, but this attraction isn't the one the Imagineers originally had in mind for this technology. They had an Incredibles-themed headliner mapped out, featuring a battle with the menacing Omnidroids from the 2004 Disney/Pixar film. But then Kuka cut a deal with Universal Studios to use its robotics wizardry to power another film-based blockbuster: Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at Islands of Adventure.
