Opened on 11/9/2014, Discovery Cube Los Angeles is the newest cutting-edge, state of the art children’s science center in Southern California.
Mad Systems was responsible for the audio/visual design and integration and special effects for the Aquavator simulated ride/theater and the Helicopter Tours simulated ride/theater as well as the structural and mechanical design and engineering for a 20ft indoor tornado as part of the Park Science exhibit (which was also controlled by a touch screen interactive which Mad designed and integrated).
Mad worked with multiple fabrication firms, design firms and media firms to get this job done on a short time frame and helped the client stay on goal with budget and time frame concerns- in the end over delivering a quality product which all teams were ecstatic with.
