StormRider was a large-scale motion simulator attraction at Tokyo DisneySea in Japan. It opened on September 4, 2001 together with the park. The attraction is similar to Star Tours at the Tokyo Disneyland. In the attraction, guests fly into the center of a storm aboard a StormRider, a flying weather laboratory. But a storm diffuser gets hit by a thunderbolt and flies out of control.

On May 19, 2015 it was announced that StormRider will be replaced by a simulator known as Nemo & Friends SeaRider, based on Finding Dory with a closing date set to be in May 16, 2016.[1]

Pre-Ride

A cast member briefs you on your mission. There is a big storm and you are to deploy a Fuse (a storm dissipater) into the eye of the storm in a StormRider. The cast member gives a brief demonstration of the Fuse, and says that you will be safe from the Fuse, as you will be miles away by the time it goes off. You are then ushered into a flight simulator similar to that of Star Tours.

Ride

With its copper roofs and mechanical devices, the attraction building—the "Center for Weather Control"—is themed to a futuristic, almost Victorian era, laboratory. Guests enter a motion simulator (a "StormRider") and are dispatched into a storm to deliver a storm-dissipating device called a "Fuse". The ride is explained in Japanese, with English subtitles on an LCD screen. During the ride, problems are encountered while trying to transport the Fuse.
