NEW YORK (WABC) --
Imagine a room full of rain that stops wherever you stand. Now it's a
reality and people are lining up for hours to experience it.
People are waiting in line for five, six hours to get a
chance to stroll through the Rain Room and once they do, they say it was
well worth it.
It's dreamy, intense, and like nothing
you've ever experienced; that's how people are describing what it's like
to stroll through the Rain Room.
It's a mind blowing exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art.
You are surrounded by pouring water, yet you stay dry.
It is by far, one of MoMA's most unusual and talked about exhibits.
You're encouraged to soak up this large scale installation, which
using digital technology creates a field of falling water that pauses
every time a human body is detected.
Sensors do the trick.
Created by Random International, this is the team's largest and most
ambitious project and really pushes people to explore the roles
science, technology and human ingenuity can play in stabilizing our
Part of the fun is taking pictures.
When you're in there you have to walk slowly, if you don't you'll get soaking wet.
You truly get a sense of what it's like to essentially, control the rain,
This is the only place in the country where you'll be able to enjoy the Rain Room, a definite must do.
The museum only lets about 10 people into the Rain Room at a time, if
it gets to crowded, the water slows down, they also want you to have
plenty of room to play.
The exhibit will be open through July 28th.
