1500 Feet in a JIM Suit



LEARNING WHAT IT’S LIKE -- Visitors to The Living Seas at Epcot Center learn what it would be like to work at an ocean depth of 1500 feet in a JIM Suit. Guest attempt experiments with counterbalanced (for weightlessness effect) manipulator hands: turn arrow, push lever, turn wheel and shift gear. The JIM Suit allows a diver to ascend from 1500 feet without decompressing. The Living Seas is presented at Walt Disney World Epcot Center by United Technologies Corporation.
