The OmnIcon of The Realm of the Cell

A typical sidewalk in the Realm of the Cell

The Realm of the Cell transported guests to the microscopic world of bacteria and protozoa.

Realm Layout and Design[]

Guests reached the Realm through the Physicist's Scalar Portal, whose technology was also used to shrink guests down to subatomic size as they entered the Realm of the Particle.

The Realm of the Cell's architecture was designed in a strikingly unique style in which "cell membranes" served as roads, sidewalks, walls and roofs, while "proteins" served as doorways and support beams.

OmniPark lore holds that Technosophers Chuck Walcott (a writer of esoteric science fiction stories), Denise Olivetti (a painter who held a master's degree in biology) and Yamasato Masaru (a manga artist who created many of OmniPark's storyboards) developed this architectural style by examining biology textbooks while under the influence of LSD [citation needed] (and possibly other psychedelic drugs such as mescaline [citation needed]).

This strange design also doubled as a biology lab: Park Ambassadors wore white lab coats, and chambers throughout the cellular architecture were filled with biological research equipment.

Attraction: Amoeba Escape[]


-HD- The Alien World Inside You

This ride began by using the Inventor's Scalar Portal technology to "shrink" guests down to the size of a paramecium, in order to explore the world of unicellular life. It was narrated by the Biologist, a stern, lab-coated woman with thick glasses and wild red hair.

At first, the exploration of the unicellular realm seemed to be going according to plan. But suddenly, riders were attacked and swallowed by an amoeba, and found themselves inside its stomach organelle, unable to escape.

The frantic Biologist proposed a desperate solution: use the shrinking technology again, to reduce the expedition to the size of a protein molecule. This second reduction miraculously worked, and guests soon found themselves exploring the complex world of intracellular biology -- dodging flying proteins, zooming through chemical receptor sites, cruising along cell membranes, and even plunging into the nucleus to examine the churning tangle of DNA.

At last, the Biologist managed to find a way out through the amoeba's cell wall. She returned the ride vehicles to the size of a unicellular organism, and then to their ordinary size.
