The Torvus Plaza is a room in the Torvus Bog. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. It is a large, arena-like room with plants growing on the walls, rain falling from the sky and a half-pipe located in the middle. The Dark Aether version of this room was the Dark Torvus Arena.

"Magnetic rail system track detected.

  • In the GameCube versions of this game, there was a glitch where the camera sometimes went behind the Spider Ball Track and obscuring the view ahead, making the ascent much harder than normal. The glitch is less likely to happen in the Trilogy version, but has not been completely fixed.
