Poseidon's Fury

Location: Islands of Adventure – Lost Continent

Height Restriction: None

Age Appropriateness: Older children who can handle darkness, explosions, loud noises and pyrotechnics

Seat Description: Standing only

Attraction Description: Poseidon’s Fury is a special effects show which features an action packed battle between ancient Greek titans. You begin the adventure as explorers following an archaeological guide from the Global Discovery Group. As you tour the temple, your group discovers a secret message written on the walls of one of the chambers. Following these clues you journey deeper and deeper into mysterious temple.

The final hallway leading up to the big show takes you through a water vortex tunnel which is the highlight of the journey. The pressure of the water is so high that it keeps it swirling right over top of you as you pass underneath, completely untouched.

Finally, you come face to face with Poseidon and his enemy, Lord Darkenon. The two titans proceed to battle it out with laser effects, explosions of water, and pyrotechnics. The show combines live actors with projections on waterfalls and mist screens. Though the show is full of action, the storyline leaves a bit to be desired.

Rumors have been circulating for months that the Lost Continent is on the chopping block to make way for a Harry Potter expansion, and the Poseidon’s Fury building may be used for a Gringotts themed roller coaster. As you tour the building, it’s easy to see how the architecture could be repurposed for such a ride. If the rumors turn out to be true, your chances to see this show could be limited.

Getting Ready: Check your park map for operating hours. This attraction doesn’t run all day.

Worth the Wait: 20 minutes; Maybe longer if you’re looking for a cool queue to hang out in - the air conditioned interior of the building is a very comfortable change from Florida’s hot, humid weather.

Ride Restrictions: You should not experience this attraction if you:

  • have a medical condition aggravated by strobe effects
  • have a medical condition aggravated by fog effects
Guests in wheelchairs and ECVs may remain in these throughout the experience.
