Key informationUser rating:
Widely regarded as one of the world's top theme park attractions, Journey to the Center of the Earth reuses the ride system from Epcot's Test Track in a new and intentive way. In order to reach the station inside a mock volcano, guests must board a "Terravator" - a retro-futuristic version of a standard elevator.
Once inside, riders board "steam-powered" mine vehicles, which carry them on a trip to the Earth's core. On their way, guests see a variety of stunning sights, including a subterranean ocean, a mushroom forest and a gigantic lava monster. The ride system enables the vehicles to move at variable speeds, adding an extra element to the experience.
