The first IMAX 3D simulator ride, Race for Atlantis was created for Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. The ride involves a race to determine who will be the next king of Atlantis. Chosen by the gods to race their chariots against a field of fierce competitors and launched into action on a huge catapult, riders experience a high-speed chariot race through the streets of the ancient city, avoiding fantastic obstacles and crashing competitors in a flight to the finish.
