The WWII-era U-505 submarine exhibit has been a popular draw at the world-renowned Museum of Science and Industry. Leviathan was brought aboard to help rethink the concept of a “diving simulator” attraction, using three large screens, 4D sound and console game-quality graphics via the Unreal Engine. This fun-filled educational experience challenges each user to avoid death by torpedoes, depth charges and crushing water pressure, or escape unharmed.
The Concept

Since 1954, the U-505 submarine exhibit has been a popular draw at the world-renowned Museum of Science and Industry, and while its WWII technology is still quite fascinating to audiences the museum’s leadership has recognized the need for a modern new media component to enhance visitors’ engagement.

The Production

Leviathan was brought aboard to help rethink the concept of a “diving simulator” attraction, using three large screens, 4D sound and console game-quality graphics via the Unreal Engine, as well as analog controls for each of the three simulation units (which were conceived, engineered and fabricated by Luci Creative & Ravenswood Studio).

Final

As alluring as an arcade game but anchored by historical fact, this fun-filled educational experience challenges each user to avoid death by torpedoes, depth charges and crushing water pressure, or escape unharmed.
