PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS Turns Vancouver Building into Empire State Building Entrance
Ask for the key to the 600th floor.
Olympus – home of the Olympian gods and goddesses – moves to America in the Percy Jackson world and relocates to the top of New York City’s iconic Empire State Building, hidden as the 600th floor.
Crew from Disney+’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series has turned a downtown Vancouver building into the entrance to the Empire State Building.
Fans hope that series creator Rick Riordan will cameo as the security guard in the lobby who provides the key to travel to the 600th floor.
