“Catch the Rumrunners”

NATIONAL CONSTITUTION CENTER,
PHILADELPHIA, PA

Objective:

Immerse visitors firsthand in the experience of preventing rumrunner boats from bringing liquor into the U.S. from Canada during Prohibition.

Services:

Concept development, multimedia and software design and production.

Description:

Visitors feel like they are in the midst of the excitement and the danger of uncovering and stopping illegal rum running. Using a mechanical steering wheel and throttle, visitors navigate their Coast Guard vessel through the Puget Sound in hot pursuit of the faster rumrunner boats. Their score is calculated based upon how many rumrunners are intercepted versus how many get through.
