The room is a set attached to a gimble. Essentially the gimble is attached to both ends of the box (Turbo's room) and a technicial controls the rotation. Mike (Turbo) then moves around the room according to it's current position. While nothing legendary or new (this same effect can be seen in many films including A Nightmare on Elm St. released the same year) this scene in particular is a testament to Mike's skills as a fantastic dancer and is always fun to watch. I've spoken with Mike on many occasions and he has very fond memories of this time in his life and upholds and remains convinced to this day of the positive message behind and delivered by Electric Boogaloo.
Hope this helps, keep poppin' and lockin'!
hey my aunt told me when i was little they turned the camera. this explanation makes sense cuz sometimes it seems as if turbo is movin down an incline. this is a good scene!
i c a li-toe si-lo-weh-toe of a man
the rotating room was built in 1950 for the Fred Astaire movie Royal wedding. It has be redressed and reused for over 70 years
