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.

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. - Quentin Scruggs

eh 8/10 - Owen Scott

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

This walkthrough attraction was ok. The actor/guide wasn't very good. He didn't act like he and his subjects would die in about a few minutes. The effects were very good but they didn't do a good job hiding the effects technicians. Good to see if the line is short or it's really hot in the sun. 4/10 Was there supposed to be a water vortex? And why are they still working with 480p on this attraction? - Jaiden Cohen

I like it, first the building outside is breathtaking, the show is a little cheesy but still entertaining a the effects are beautiful really well made. do it at least once, it may surprise you + I hard it will be gone soon... - David Shaul

This walkthrough show can either be really awesome or really terrible depending on two factors a. the actor playing your guide and b. the crowd you are in. If your guide is good and the crowd is receptive then this ride is an 8/10. If the guide is mediocre and the crowd is unwilling to suspend their disbelief this ride is a 4/10. Therefore I'm giving this show a 6/10 as half the time it is an 8 and half the time a 4. - Randolph Wright
