“If you build it, it will sink.” Theme park ride designer Mike Sullivan worked on some of the world’s most iconic theme park attractions; from Universal, to Disney, to Five Flags. But he’s always dreamed of designing a ride based on the sinking of the RMS Titanic, and launching it - where else? - Las Vegas. Laid off and faced with being trapped in a cubicle designing air conditioning systems for a construction company for the rest of his life, Mike’s wife, Gina, gives him an ultimatum: take a six-month sabbatical from “real” work to find the funding for the ride, or else get a real job and give up the Titanic forever. With the help of a ragtag group of retired theme park designers, including his feisty Sicilian father-in-law, Mike builds a model of the ride and goes in search of funding. Aided by an unexpected angel investor, Mike and his team build the RMS Titanic 'ride' on the Vegas strip as a theme park attraction complete with an “Iceberg” hotel-casino. But as it sails off on its maiden voyage, filled with VIPs and Hollywood celebrities, forces intent on sabotage threaten to sink the Titanic for good!
