Last year we were out and about checking out some of the sights on International Drive when I noticed a Titanic sign. Being such a interesting movie, and also being one of the most well known disasters I decided that we would have to check this out and learn some more about the Titanic. After having dinner at Cici’s Pizza across the street we made our way to the building. Side note… I know it is Florida, and the weather is usually hot, but if you plan on going to the exhibit make sure you dress warm if you aren’t fond of the cold.
Upon purchasing tickets we were told that our stubs had the name of a person that was on the Titanic. We were to be that passenger for the tour. We were told no more. The tour guide even dresses in era based outfits for authenticity. Once you enter the exhibit you are taken through many different areas that are designed to make it look, and feel like you were there. There were many artifacts on display from the era. There were depictions of the radio room, a 1st class room, the boiler room, and many more. One area had a place where you stood in what appeared to be the deck of the ship, and was also very cold as it was the night of the disaster.
At the very end of the tour you are brought to a wall showing the names of survivors, and those that past on. I was a passenger that didn’t make it.
Titanic The Experience was well worth the money that was spent. It allowed us to understand more of what happened that night onboard the Titanic. It made me look at how things have changed in the “cruising” industry. There was a dinner show also available, but we didn’t have enough time to take that in. Prices weren’t very bad at @ $20 for an adult, and @ $15 for a child.
