New Attraction at Atlantis Submarine, Havensight Mall

May 30, 2007 – Atlantis Submarines has brought their submarine right into their retail store in Havensight Mall. The company recently extracted an authentic submarine pilot's console from a real submarine and placed it right in the front of their store. Visitors can now enter the store and "drive" the submarine at no charge before they take the actual two-hour Atlantis Submarine Coral Reef Exploration.
The console comes complete with a full control panel and submarine sound effects.
It comes from the original submarine, the TS-2, which Atlantis operated on St. Thomas from 1987 to 1998. The TS-2 was replaced by the newer, larger TS-15 submarine in 1999. Atlantis has hosted over 11 million guests on their submarine tour since starting operations in 1985.
