Disney seems hell-bent on making sure I never again visit Animal Kingdom.
Logically the Avatar ride will be a 3D movie based ride bacause the movie itself is 3D and Disney will need to go beond what they have done with the e-ticket Cars ride to represent the world of Pandora. There are 2 ways of traveling trough the air in the movie, by gunship or by flying dragon. This beeing Disney it won't be the gunship so we have the even more movable dragen beast. It's also more fitting to Animal Kingdom. How they pull it of is beond me. Boarding a ride vehicle looking like a dragon would be awefull. The motion sim would place you trough the scenes and 3D movie screens and you will have something that is done excelent by Universal... Still looking forward if this is getting build at all.
The cherry on top is the speculation about an Iron Man attraction at Disneyland.... the hits just keep on coming!
It is good to be a theme park fan these days!
Although they've had one under construction for quite some time at Euro Disney. (Ratatouille)
But on the positive side, that's really good news I mean "many" of us know that AK needs the help... Badly!!
The Iron Man thing, now, that would be "GREAT" if they would ever build such a thing!! Finally a post about Disney for the people not interested in attractions for (girls only) or 8-15 years old segment mentally...
Really good news!! But I do have to say, I'm really interested in this, I hope they do something a la Harry Potter-FJ, or Spiderman, Transformers, because I know people love Soarin, I don't...
Universal waits until after Halloween Horror Nights for its (presumed) Transformers announcement on Nov. 1. Which just so happens to step on the media blitz for Disney's Fantasyland Expansion. So just after Universal announces its announcement, Avatar leaks begin to appear.
It really makes it look like Disney and Universal are trying to one-up each other. Which is great for theme park fans. When Disney and Universal compete, we get more and better theme park attractions, and the Orlando theme park market grows. Win for everyone.
To quote Yoda: "Begun, the theme park wars have"
My biggest question is how will they disguise such a massive show building?
Also I cant believe people are complaining about iron man. We're getting a great transformer fighting e ticket instead of Innoventions. Innoventions! Ya that building that hasnt really been used for years except to show off honda and microsoft products! Give me the e ticket please!
I guess I will have to watch Avatar at some stage then....
