Ingram Planetarium Has A Hurricane! . . . Simulator!

As I have mentioned before, the Town of Sunset Beach boasts its own excellent Planetarium, with a state-of-the-art 85-seat theater facility and an excellent "hands-on" Science Hall.

And when we dropped by for our latest casual visit to Ingram Planetarium this past month, we discovered they have added one more cool thing to the Science Hall:  a Hurricane Simulator!  It's just two dollars for you and a friend to step into the simulator and experience for a few minutes the wind force of a Category 1 Hurricane - 78 mile-per-hour winds (minus the rain, storm surge, or debris flying through the air, we were happy to note)!
