Our Planet offers a flurry of interactive experiences through which guests can experience weather and earth science.

Brace yourself in the winds of a Category 1 hurricane, shake things up in an earthquake simulator, and find out what it feels like inside of a cloud! Plus, try out the green screen and report the weather at the WFTV 9 Severe Weather Center, or get a close-up look at the planets at Science on a Sphere.
