It was announced at the 2015 D23 Expo in Anaheim that that the new Avatar inspired ride at Disney’s Animal Kingdom would be named Pandora – The World of AVATAR. Not too much else about the new attraction was revealed though, until today when an exciting update was announced at the D23 Expo in Japan.
The new ride will be a family-friendly attraction bringing a whole variety of extra ride experiences to the park. One of the attractions announced today was the Na’vi River Journey ride which will take guests in canoes down a ‘mysterious, sacred river hidden within the bioluminescent rainforest’! The attraction will of course be enhanced by the addition of the numerous exotic plants and incredible creatures which make the Animal Kingdom such a unique visitor attraction. At the end of the ride, guests will interact with the Na’vi shaman, who send positive energy throughout the forest with her enchanting music.
The new attraction is due to open in 2017, so if you’re a huge AVATAR fan, it’s a good idea to start researching your 2017 holiday now!
