Journey to the Center of the Earth is a masterpiece of stagecraft, using light, sound, heat, and motion to create a multi-sensory experience. If in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea you explored the depths of the sea, in this attraction you will explore the depths of the Earth. Traveling through caverns within Mount Prometheus, walking past oozing lava in the queue, you come to Captain Nemo's underground laboratories, where you can see the sketches of the wonders that await you even deeper inside the Earth.

You'll then board a "Terravator" to descend to the expedition's base station, where you will board an eight-passenger mining vehicle to travel through the tunnels bored by previous explorers. You'll descend into crystal caverns and encounter a giant mushroom forests filled with bizarre creatures before an earthquake knocks you off course. A lightning storm nearly finishes you before you emerge into the heart of the volcano, where a giant lava monster awaits.

The encounter of with the monster provides the highlight of the ride, a combination punch of effects that culminates with the volcano's eruption launching you out of the mountain for a high-speed ride around the caldera of the ancient volcano.
