Once the centerpiece of the park, back when it was a working film and television studio, little remained of this backstage tour as of its closing on Sept 27, 2014.

You started with a short demonstration of practical (non-computer-animated) special effects inspired by Michael Bay's Pearl Harbor. Then you board a tram for short drive past some retired movie and theme park props, through a costume shop, and then into the highlight of the tour — a "film shoot" in Catastrophe Canyon, where your tram was subjected to all sorts of special effects mayhem, including fire and flood.
