For the Metroid Prime room known as Reactor Access after the Frigate Orpheon crash, see Reactor Core Entrance.

Reactor Access is a room in the Sanctuary Fortress. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. It is a fairly large, round room that, upon first entry, features a platform that is being held up by a locking mechanism that can only be seen with the Dark Visor.

The Dark Aether version of this room is the Hive Reactor Access.
