Famous Storm Chasers Visit


One of the most exciting IMAX films ever produced is now showing at Pacific Science Center's PACCAR IMAX Theater, and you're invited to come meet two of the film's stars. Tornado Alley 3D takes you along for a wild ride into the heart of some of the world's fiercest weather. Next week, famous storm chaser Sean Casey, one of the film's stars, will make an appearance at Pacific Science Center. Joining him will be another star of the film - the incredible, 7-ton Tornado Intercept Vehicle, otherwise known as TIV 2.

The TIV 1 weighed in at nearly nine tons. The TIV 2 is a modified version of the first that's a bit lighter and can reach speeds of up to 100 mph. Learn More

On Wednesday, January 18, 2012, Casey and the TIV 2 will be on hand at our main gate facing Seattle Center from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. During that time, our guests can stop by to ask questions and take pictures. They'll do the same from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Casey will also make appearances inside the theater during the noon and 7:30 p.m. showings of Tornado Alley 3D to answer questions. The TIV 2 will be on display all day. Then on Thursday, January 19, 2012 it will move to our entrance on Denny Way.
