A German professor finds an original Islandic runic manuscript with a saga of a secret passage to the center of the Earth. Along with his nephew and an Islandic guide, the professor descends through an entrance in an old volcano to discover fantastic geological phenomena, prehistoric monsters and adventures which end when they are ejected through the side vent of a stratovolcano.

Build a tower for the three (marble)travelers to use to descend toward the mysterious lake at the farthest part of their journey, passing caverns of diamonds and giant mushrooms. Create the giant mushrooms, Ichthyosaurs and the bones of ancient long-gone creatures.
