Who's the homo with all the Whoas
obnoxious american tourist
Are you the dude who knows everything there is to know about rollercoasters and other amusement rides?
I've been watching the development of this ride for a couple years now. It's a game changer in the industry.
I had hoped to hold off a couple years to visit this park so phase II would be complete, but I don't think I'm going to wait that long.
You might be talking about me.
I am not watching an 8 god damn minute youtube for a god damn Pirate
yes I am mad mad
If it's you, then cheers. I liked the last thread on this subject a few months back. The one that included the Jurassic Park ride at Universal Studios or whatever. Sent me down a YouTube rabbit hole.
Close. They're lifestyle bloggers. Disney now treats Disney bloggers to sneak previews and special parties in return for good press. They shipped a bunch of them over to check out Shanghai. The park doesn't open till June, actually.
not me pal
The stories I could tell.
how is the sparrow effect done ? any ideas?
Not positive, although I have a contact I could ask.
I'm guessing it's some sort of advanced "Pepper's Ghost" effect... Similar to how the large ballroom in the haunted mansion works. But that's just my fairly educated guess. The more videos come out, the more I'll be able to tell.
they did a heck of a job hiding the JS AA under the effect..
more of this is needed in the US parks
Ironically, the US parks are among the worst in the world now. Japan's parks are by FAR the best, followed by Hong Kong and Shanghai... Then Disneyland, then World, then Paris.
Something you might find interesting about this pirates that you can't rally tell on videos... The boats aren't boats.
They patented a new ride system that allows the boats to turn any direction or move up and down as they float along. So instead of a simple boat floating down a channel, these boats are attached to a track and they can be pointed certain directions via ride programming, or raised or lowered.
It greatly increases story telling ability.
been to WDW,DL and Paris..Tokyo dis. seas is on my bucket list..
yea saw some of the art work posted in the design stage..great use of the new ride tech..
It friggin BETTER be. Seas is amazing. Jaw droppingly amazing. In the morning I'll post a couple pictures from there.
And Google "Sindbad's Storybook Voyage". Fucking awesome. Like a cross between small world and pirates, with hundreds (literally) of the most fluid AA robots you've ever seen, with music by the same guy that wrote The Little Mermaid (Alan Menken). I don't speak Japanese, and I can hum almost the entire ride soundtrack as we speak.
I intended for Tokyo to be a once in a lifetime trip and I went back again just two years later because I loved it so much. I'll likely wrap Shanghai and Tokyo together on my next trip over there. Maybe even a second stop in Hong Kong at the same time.
good stuff man ..i agree from what i have seen online..
heres hopin that SW land doesn't dissapoint..i know Pandora will be a tru E tik experience
