In Trevors volcanology laboratory, a device shows activity on Snfell, a dormant volcano in Iceland. Trevor and Sean travel to Iceland to investigate. They try to contact Icelandic volcanologist Sigurbjrn sgeirsson, but instead encounter his daughter Hannah sgeirsson Anita Briem since her father had died some years earlier. It turns out that Sigurbjrn and Max were both Vernians, a group of people who believe the works of Jules Verne to be fact and not fiction.Hannah offers to help them climb the volcano. While the group is hiking up the volcano, a lightning storm forces them to take shelter in a cave. The cave entrance collapses, leaving them trapped in what appears to be an abandoned mine. The trio then rides on outofcontrol mine carts, in which the tracks start to branchoff in three ways. Hannah and Trevor get saved from deadends and Sean reunites with them. They reach the bottom of a volcanic vent, the floor of the vent breaks, and they begin to fall towards the center of the Earth. The volcanic vent eventually becomes a water slide which drops them safely into a lake in the center of the Earth, which turns out to be a completely separate world contained within the Earth. ........
