Fred Huebener, Theaters Manager at the Michigan Science tells InPark of his recent visit to The Ford Rouge Factory Tour, “The new shows in the 4D and intro theaters are exceptional. The new 4D portion of the tour is by far the best STEM oriented theater experience in the country. The projection mapping, LED lighting, lasers, robotic arms, smoke, fans, smells and other special effects are Disney level awesome!”
