It was built in concurrence with the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta. Managed by Orlando based Baker Leisure Group, the featured three key areas that displayed Olympic based virtual reality sports attractions.

The first area allowed patrons to play a Horse-style game called "HOOPS" against Grant Hill. The area also allowed patrons to test their baseball skills by striking out Cecil Fielder in a pitching simulator or hitting a home run against Tom Glavine in a batting simulator.
The second area allowed patrons to ride mountain bikes on simulated competition course, race against Jackie Joyner-Kersee in a 40-yard (37 m) dash, perform gymnastics on a balance beam with Mary Lou Retton and race in a simulated wheelchair race as a Paralympian.
The third area included an Olympic themed theater show that took patrons through a 15 minute story about the history of the Olympic Games and the Spirit of the Games. The area also featured actual Olympic artifacts from the International Olympic Museum in Lussanne, Switzerland.
