  • [Question] questions about Mount Prometheus

    How tall is Mount Prometheus? Is there any concept art for the volcano? What does the track layout for Journey to the Center of the Earth look like?

    Re: questions about Mount Prometheus

    There's tons of concept art for Mount Prometheus: go to http://disneyandmore.blogspot.com/ and search around. Alain has lots of great concept art there. The original work was done for stuff that was never built for Disneyland Paris.

    Journey to the Center of the Earth has a track layout similar to that of Test Track, using a second generation of the same ride system. You realize it when you stand in the center of the caldera and hear the cars whizz around you.

      Here you go Captain. The TDS volcano is tied for second. I was too lazy to convert to non-metric.

      TOP TEN HIGHEST POINTS INSIDE THE PARKS

      1. Hotel Hightower - 59 meters (to the 14th floor; elevators reach 38 meters)
      2. Mt. Prometheus - 51 m
      2. Cinderella Castle - 51 m
      4. Space Mountain - 38 m
      5. Big Thunder Mountain - 33 m
      6. Splash Mountain - 30.3 m (final drop is 16 m)
      7. Temple of the Crystal Skull - 25 m
      8. Swiss Family Treehouse - 19 m (highest point for guests: 13 m)
      9. StarJets - 18.5 m (highest point for rocket: 14 m)

        You can also find a lot of great concept art in that new Imagineering book that recently came out to buy.

          IIRC, Splash Mountain is built on a 'hill.' You have to walk up to get to it. I wonder if the 30.3 includes that.... I do remember coming out of the Mountain before the drop and seeing the glorious view over TDL. I thought that view made it the best version of Splash Mountain - and of course makes the anticipation of the drop even scarier.

            So in non-metric that would be about 160 feet high, right?

              It would be just over 167 feet.

                Isn't Cinderella Castle a replica of Florida's version, meaning it would be 57.3 meters (189 feet) tall?

                  The Imagineers built Tokyo's castle to look like Florida. Tokyo's castle is 167", while Orlando's is 189".

                      I don't think this is right, from what I've read they're pretty much identical on the outside (minus a missing turret on Tokyo's, and perhaps with a few feet shaved off the base).

                      I did some research and it seems the main reason for the height discrepency is that Florida's castle height includes the layer of utilidors beneath it. Effectively, its height from the castle base is only 167-170 feet (the artificial ground level), not 189 feet (which is from the original ground level). Interestingly to me, this means that Florida's castle is practically the same height as Disneyland Paris's (167 feet), which surprised me as I thought Paris's was made smaller.

                      For anyone who's interested, I've collated together over forty different Disney weenie and structure heights and put them up on my blog. If anyone can spot any mistakes please let me know!
