This dark-ride is from the outside a majestic arabian palace with an own square with fountains and an event ballroom. It starts with guests boarding 20-passenger boats and floating slowly into a scene of forestry, so one could be forgiven for thinking that this is just another Pirates of the Caribbean rip-off. However, when a wizard suddenly appears and opens up a new gateway, this becomes a 1001 Nights themed showcase of special effects, including more innovation than most Disney dark rides. From out of the jungle you arrive in the forbidden city. There you´ll see an arabian market, slavery and prisons. Also you will go through a luxery arabian palace and through the treasure chamber garded by a giant. A clever ride that shouldn't be missed.
