Wild Arctic is a motion simulator attraction at SeaWorld Orlando and SeaWorld San Diego that is followed by a walk-through exhibit of arctic marine life. Visitors can see the video that accompanies the simulator if they wish to skip the simulator. The simulator travels from the Franklin Exploration Center otherwise known as the line and the boarding area, to Base Sation Wild Arctic.
This attraction is operated by Sal, hence his title of ride operator.
The movie starts out as Captain Emerson of White Thunder takes off from the Franklin Exploration Center setting out for Wild Arctic. Captain Emerson gets cleared to go after warnings telling him that there is a massive storm front going straight through the flight path to Base Station Wild Arctic and tells the audience that the ride will be a short flight.

Science On a Sphere (SOS) is a spherical projection system created by NOAA. It presents high-resolution video on suspended globe rather than a flat screen, with the aim of better representing global phenomena. Animated images of atmospheric storms, climate change, and ocean temperature can be shown on the sphere to explain these complex environmental processes. SOS systems are most frequently installed in science museums, universities, zoos, and research institutions, although new and novel uses for these systems in a variety of presentation spaces and contexts are starting to emerge.
The system is installed in more than 80 locations worldwide.
SOS uses many off-the-shelf hardware and software components combined into an innovative format. A spherical screen covered in ordinary latex paint hangs suspended in the center of a projection space. The screen is inert; it neither moves nor has any electronic parts. Surrounding the screen are four video projectors, positioned at ninety degree increments around the screen. Each projector is responsible for one quadrant of screen space. One CPU with three graphics cards (two for the projector output and one for the user interface) is used to
