An Inside Look at Destination: Atlantis
Page 3 - Main Floor Interactive Area - "The Vortex"

Destination Atlantis

After leaving Whitmore's Library you can travel under the "Disney's Atlantis The Lost Empire" sign and into an interactive room on the main floor referred to as "The Vortex".

Upon entering "The Vortex," visitors are greated with another well-themed room full of various exhibits and activities.

One of the popular exhibits in "The Vortex" is the ocean life exhibit (starfish, etc.) that visitors are allowed to touch and interact with.

These Atlantean bridges shake and every three minutes the large display in the background blows out a huge ring of smoke that travels the distance of the entire room.

Another popular activity in "The Vortex" room is riding the Atlantean Ketak vehicles (there are two of them). Visitors get on the vehicles and as soon as they place their thumbs onto the controls, the vehicles come to life.

Disney's multiplayer PC game - Trial by Fire - is set up for visitors to enjoy. There are six stations and all are networked so that visitors can compete with each other. The large sphere gives off an illuminating lighting effect and sits atop several bubble machines.
