This fall I've been to Disney Sea and even though I was alone I took all my courage and rode the Journey ride. First of all, the atmosphere during the pre-ride walkthrough to the cars was great. It made me pretty nervous but you really get the feeling that you're in the story. The ride itself is amazing. It is so beautiful, especially the Lava Monster. After that, the ride went pretty fast and was a huge thrill..
Now on to the question itself. During the pre-ride you ride an elevator to what feels like the top of Mt. Prometheus. After that you slowly descent with the car, seeing wonderful creatures along the way. However, aren't these creatures supposed to live at the center of the earth? I was pretty amazed that after the fast decent when passing the Lava Monster the ride was over. Why does the ride go UP (using the elevators) when you're supposed to be at the center of the Earth.
