The ride first takes guests back to a mythological version of Norway's Viking days. The boat first pass through scenes of seafarers and Vikings. The boats then enter an enchanted swamp, and are forced backwards down a waterfall by angry trolls. The boat floats rapidly past scenes of polar bears and living trees, before coming to a stop on the edge of another waterfall, exposed to the Norway's pavilion main thoroughfare. After again rotating to a forward-facing position, the boats plunge forward into the stormy North Sea. The boats pass dangerously close to an oil rig and the ride comes to an abrupt end in a calm harbor. After the ride, guests disembark and have the option to watch a 6 minute film highlighting the history and folklore of Norway.
