Start by walking through the ruins of the ancient Temple of Poseidon, where you'll find an archeologist who will lead you deeper into the temple. But be careful. You might find that the legends of past are still very much alive. Poseidon's Fury features several special effects scenes, including a water vortex and a nifty effect that will have you questioning where you are. Or were.

Only go if you need AC or rain protection. Good theming and decent effects, but prepare for hokey acting and a weak story.

I agree with others who say that with a good tour guide, and in the right mindset, this attraction is a whole lot of fun. If you are a fan of the Jungle Cruise, or the defunct Jaws attraction, you will find much to like here. There are dated elements for sure, but also some surprising special effects and stagecraft tricks that are worth checking out. (Plus I'm a sucker for any queue that includes dimming flickering lights and descent into an ancient tomb or mine ;-)

Cheesy at times but the effects are entertaining and that water tunnel is worth it.
Jonathan Katz
An overall unpleasant experience that butchers mythology. 1/10

This show is dated, but still awesome. It really, like my peers have already stated, dependent on the tour guides. If they're great, the show is outstanding, but if they're just okay or bad, the show is much less fun. They need to update this. I used to skip this during my initial visits, hearing bad things about it, but now it is a must do. 8.5/10.

If you happen upon a guide that isn't terrible, Poseidon's Fury is in my opinion, the hidden gem of Islands of Adventure.
