Time Elevator

Everybody has dreamed of going back in time, at least one time in their lives! This is a child wish that usually sticks with us when we are grownups. From the Renaissance and the Roman Empire and then finally back to the present, Rome is one of the best if you want to experience the best of the past.  And Time Elevator is an amazing attraction that gives us the feeling of going all the way back with the help of technology.

Time Elevator is all about simulation. A 5D immersive film is played across the screens and the platform you are on is movable: of course, it simulates an elevator falling and going through different time sets.

What’s Time Elevator about?

Rome’s history dates back to almost 3000 years ago. It has been said that history is all you will be visiting. And it makes sense: visiting the city is like going through a time portal itself, and getting into this platform is a more fun way of experiencing it.

The objective of this attraction is to give you a glance of cultural, religious, historic and geographic events of the Eternal City.  Ironically enough, they use a futuristic method to show these panoramic views to people. It’s a really educational and fun ride for the whole family: in our opinion, it’s an excellent way to also give kids a more dynamic perspective of the historic ruins and sightseeing spots they see during strolls and visits.

How does this time travelling experience work?  

Time Elevator is a platform in which you hop on. It has the ability of moving, simulating rain, snow and other kind of events: it’s a simulation ride. It can be really magical for people of all ages!

The total duration of the History of Rome is about 45 minutes. Trust us: it’s enough time to comprehend everything and to enjoy it at the fullest. And it’s actually quite a good duration for children that might become a bit too anxious with the ride (although this doesn’t happen very often.)
