Inside the Cinema room, with the lights on.

Into the next room, and the passageway before the Octagon.
aaa_hex_09.jpg
A look inside the Octagon room with the lights on. Notice the lighting rig at the top used for thunder/lighning effects during the ride - this can be lowered down to floor level for maintenance purposes.
aaa_hex_10.jpg
Looking from the Octagon back towards the passageway.
aaa_hex_11.jpg
These panels are usually covered up.

The "window" where effects happen during the ride.
aaa_hex_12b.JPG
Another look at the window in the Octagon.

aaa_hex_17.jpg
Smoke effects around the "fallen branch".

Another look at the fallen branch in the vault.

On the wall are several drawings which again, you'd normally not notice unless you were looking out for them.
aaa_hex_20.jpg
An image on the wall showing the chained oak.
aaa_hex_21.jpg
Another one which has fake "plans" for the vault, supposedly drawn up by the Earl of Shrewsbury.
aaa_hex_22.jpg
More technical drawings. These really add to the level of detail on this ride.
aaa_hex_23.jpg
Outside the vault, we take a look at the "room within a room".
aaa_hex_24.jpg
This building is very large - the vault itself isn't exactly small, and then you have this other building around it.
aaa_hex_25.jpg
The "vault" moves at a very high speed when the ride is in progress.
aaa_hex_26.jpg
Looking up towards the roof of the shed that houses the vault.
aaa_hex_27.jpg
We go down a level and take a look at the underside of the vault.
aaa_hex_28.jpg
The panels can be removed if the technicians need to access something in the vault that can't be easily reached.
aaa_hex_29.jpg
The Hex control room, which is situated to the side of the vault.
aaa_hex_30.jpg
A closer look at the control panel.
aaa_hex_31.jpg
The cameras located throughout the ride give the Operator the ability to keep track on where each group of guests is, amongst other things.
aaa_hex_31b.JPG
Another close look at the Operator's console, where they can keep track of where guests are throughout the ride.
aaa_hex_32.jpg
Back in the main building which houses the vault, we look at the sound system for the ride.
aaa_hex_33.jpg
After the Octagon, when you turn left towards the vault, you actually leave the "real" towers and head into a fake section. If you continued forwards rather than turning left, this is the view you'd get.
