One of theattractions at the San Jose Tech Museum is the Earthquake house. It simulates an Earthquake of 8.1 as you stand in the house's leaving room.

They've got a building looking like this in Orlando. Having been thru several of the real tremors I don't think I would want to go thru one of these buildings.

Here's the Orlando building.

Good work! I would like to visit that place as well as the one in Orlando. The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) has a small earthquake simulator but it is only the size of a typical bathroom. Three or four people can stand?? in it.

Thanks, Cal. Yes, the San JoseTech Museum is a cool place to visit and if you have the money to spend, it sits right across from the Fairmont Hotel...another great place to visit (and stay)!!!.
