Pandora the World of Avatar
Pandora – The World of Avatar located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom has officially been dedicated. The ceremony was held on May 24, 2017. Celebrities included in the festivities were Bob Iger and James Cameron. A short procession started things off, and after the dedication was officially over there was a drum ceremony was held in the new land.
Here is a little information about Walt Disney World’s newest land, Pandora The World of Avatar.
There are two new rides in Pandora. The more popular of the two and the one everyone is talking about is Avatar Flight of Passage. It’s a 3D motion simulator ride that’s been described as a “combination of Soarin’ and Star Tours”. That’s about as close a description as possible if you’re looking to compare it to other rides. You’ll link your mind with an Avatar and then ride on the back of a banshee. Eight people ride across, each on their own motorcycle-type vehicle. The seat itself is a little bit awkward, you lean forward and you’re locked in from behind. They’re not the most comfortable seats ever, but they do put you into the right position so that you can best feel as if you are flying.
The second new ride is Na’vi River Journey. It’s a slow moving boat ride that is relaxing and beautiful. It’s been described as a cross between It’s a Small World and Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros. It’s not really like either of those two rides, but more of a gentle boat ride that uses screens to help create the journey. The scenery is stunning. You do truly feel as if you’re riding through another world. The Na’vi Shaman of Songs at the end is an extremely well done Audio-Animatronic figure.
