Description And Comments
Behind the ancient ruins conveniently placed in the middle of a Central Florida theme park, an archeology team led by one Professor Baxter is working to uncover the secrets of this long lost temple dedicated to the sea god Poseidon. We were lucky enough to be able to tour these ruins during our visit. Professor Baxter wasnâ€™t around, so one of the interns led us through the several chambers theyâ€™d uncovered.
You can tell our guide was new because he inadvertently read a spell which awoke Lord Darkenon, Poseidonâ€™s nemesis, from a thousand-year sleep. Apparently Darkenon wanted Poseidonâ€™s trident, which we happened to find when the tour began. Pursued by Darkenon, we hurriedly followed our intern through the ruins on foot, trying to find a way out.
We met other gods in different rooms, but it wasnâ€™t always clear what they wanted or what we needed to do. However, Professor Baxterâ€™s team has done wonderful things in restoring the temple â€“ we even got to walk through a cylindrical room created out of jets of water, which will definitely increase the resale value when the temple goes condo.
There was a big battle between Poseidon and Darkenon, with lasers, fire, explosions and lots of other special effects. Our intern finally figured out how to get the trident back to Poseidon, which saved the day. Heâ€™ll probably get a good recommendation for his resume. The entire experience took a little less than 20 minutes.
- This attraction participates in Universal Express.
Opens 1 to 2 hours after the rest of the park, sometimes as late as 11 am. Check the daily entertainment schedule for show times.
While most of the action takes place on movie screens, Poseidonâ€™s Fury can frighten many small children. The entire theater is thrown into total darkness many times during the show, and many of the special effects involve fire, loud noises and flashing lights.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Poseidon's Fury when you visit on a day with a given Islands of Adventure Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Poseidon's Fury Wait Times.
