About Us

Extreme Weather Experience (EWE) is a one-of-a-kind concept to develop weather education-entertainment (edutainment) that will include experiential, immersive, interactive, hands-on weather-themed attractions, rides and exhibits. 

Eventually, multi-media broadcasting and retail will be included.   

EWE  users will “experience” dangerous weather in a very real, almost frightening way. They will “feel, hear, see, and touch” the weather. Users will quiver from lightning and thunder, shiver to cold and snowy winds, and sweat in a sultry heatwave. 

Special effects, animatronics, and the newest cutting-edge, creative technologies, including virtual and augmented reality media platforms will take the user into the weather.  

Art, music and live theater will also be a part of the user's experience. 

Behind the EWE weather edutainment will be education: 

  • meteorology
  • mitigation
  • resilience
  • code-plus 
  • safety
  • preparedness
  • etc. 

EWE education will be presented with the attractions, rides and exhibits in a variety of methods and techniques.  

The goal is to motivate users to take action to prepare, protect, mitigate and safeguard their families, homes and businesses. Users will be empowered, and leave with real life changing takeaways resulting in meaningful lifesaving changed behavior. The result will be a nation more resilient to natural hazards!
