Environmental Tectonics Corporation's EnTCo Subsidiary Announces that its New Coin-Op Kiosk Attraction has been Contracted by South Carolina Aquarium.

Kiosk to be Showcased at IAAPA Expo

SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Environmental Tectonics Corporation's ("ETC" or the "Company") wholly owned subsidiary Entertainment Technology Corporation (EnTCo) is pleased to announce the sale of a "Wild Earth(TM): Deep Ocean Safari" Kiosk to South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston, South Carolina. This is the first sale of this 2-player Kiosk since its debut at the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Conference in September 2007. The Wild Earth(TM) Kiosk, along with a new tech demo of a multi-player dome projection installation, will be showcased November 13-16 at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo in Orlando, Florida, Booth 162. "Wild Earth(TM): Deep Ocean Safari" features Philippe Cousteau of EarthEcho International and Michiko Martin of NOAA's National Marine Sanctuary Program as guides through the interactive experience. "Deep Ocean Safari" is part of the educational Wild Earth(TM) Safari series of interactive photo-safari attractions created by EnTCo.

Rob Lloyd, President & Chief Creative Officer of EnTCo, said: "We have worked closely with the National Marine Sanctuary Program and EarthEcho to create a rich and compelling adventure that presents messages of responsible Earth and Ocean stewardship. We are thrilled to offer this new low-cost platform and make the Wild Earth experience available to a wide range of quality institutions like the South Carolina Aquarium and to help engage as wide an audience as possible."

The sleek design of the walk-up, fully interactive, coin-operated Wild Earth(TM) Kiosk captures the same excitement, educational messaging, and game play potential as the rest of the Wild Earth(TM) Safari motion-based simulator series, but in a small footprint, non-motion base Kiosk frame. With the ability to engage 1-2 players at a time, this low-overhead revenue generator is great for capturing guest's attention and enabling them to become active participants in the exhibit.

"We're always looking for new and exciting ways to get our conservation mission out to our visitors," said Kevin Mills, President and CEO of the South Carolina Aquarium. "The interactive kiosk introduces an engaging new dynamic to the floor, combining elements of play with environmental learning."

In the Wild Earth(TM) Safari series, guests discover the thrill and excitement of a Photo Safari experience and marvel at the array of wildlife and rich landscapes they encounter on their adventure. In Wild Earth(TM), the riders are in full control, navigating the vehicle through stunning terrestrial and marine landscapes on a quest for that "perfect picture". In Wild Earth(TM): Deep Ocean Safari, guests become sub-mariners to discover and interact with a wide array of marine life and habitats that represent the National Marine Sanctuary Program. The virtual dive offers a kaleidoscope of images and memories never to be forgotten. Wild Earth(TM) received the "Best New Product" award from IAAPA in 2004. Installed in premier institutions like the Philadelphia Zoo and the San Diego Zoo, Wild Earth(TM) Safaris include

African Plains and Deep Ocean adventures. Plans for future Wild Earth(TM) Safaris include "Space", "Bugs", "Prehistoric" and "Rain Forest" experiences.
