Shanghai Disney Resort Discussion Thread

P. 44: SoReal Virtual Reality experience coming to DisneyTown

Recommended Posts

I've ridden River Quest and absolutely loved it! All in a

free-standing (somewhat) structure too, which was something

to see and ride through. Worth repeating. Great ride.

 

The other I really want to ride, is Popeye/Bluto at IOA. And the Dudley Doright

flume too. They both look awesome in their theming and atmosphere.

And they both go way beyond "an acceptable level of wetness."

^ Noted. It would be like my first time on Valhalla (THERE's another awesome flume!),

and I went and changed into swim shorts and tankop and flip flops before riding. Poncho

was utterly useless. Total gas of a ride. Have re-ridden it several times, in past visits.

 

So, I'll prepare (if I ever get there), Chuck.

I know that "hard-core" park and coaster enthusiasts tend to dislike Soarin', but I rather enjoy it (nice and relaxing). Other guests like it because almost all age groups can participate, and it delivers a mild thrill. My parents loved it at DCA.

 

That being said, I wouldn't wait for hours to ride it.

If i'm being honest, outside of Soarin, I was expecting lines for this park to be much worse than 75-120 minutes for bigger attractions even in the morning on a opening weekend (or so close to opening).I think based on some of the mad dashes at opening I've had on Japan trips I was expecting to see around 3-3.5 hours for things like Tron and Snow White etc.

I loved Soarin', after experiencing it at Epcot, that theme music has been playing in my head all the time and I rode it 7-8 times at DCA during winter break. But I'm not sure how Soarin' at Shanghai Disney will hold up its popularity overtime as flying theaters are EVERYWHERE in China now.

 

^Keep in mind this park is still not officially opened yet, I bet it will get much worse when the park is actually opened.

That's true, I'm kind of a wait until it's died down kind of person for trips rather than being first so i'll probably wait a year or 2. I still haven't ridden Harry Potter because I'm more interested in Flying Dinosaur and want to wait. Even with my local park, I remember Lost Valley had 4-5 hour lines when it opened and still gets dashes in the morning. On all my trips I didn't ride it until a year and a half after opening when it had a 20 minute wait around lunch.

The full Pirates "stunt show", which looks really good.

 

Some highlights:

 

1:30 to 1:55 --> Jack Sparrow appears

4:45 to 5:15 --> flying Jack Sparrow

6:50 to 8:25 ----> when the actual stage appears

10:00 to 11:30 --> swordfighting and stuff

13:30 to 15:10 --> storm finale

I've never heard of a flying theater. Are they like Soarin' but play full movies? Or similar in length and also flying above neat touristy locations?

OK, that finale was goddamn incredible. I've never seen a skydiving fan incorporated into a stage show and definitely never seen one not using a tube around the flying compartment. Wow!

^Holy crap! WOW! That truly is incredible. I usually skip shows at parks, but that is one I would absolutely have to see in person. The two pirates attractions (the boat ride and this show) are both mind blowing and they really have me wanting to visit Shanghai Disney!

Kind of like Soarin'. Happy Valley which is like an hour away from Shanghai Disney has one from HUSS. I've never been on that one but Chinese people generally tend to be like "yeah I've been on a flying theater before so I don't have to ride any others anymore".

The "flying theater" at Happy Valley is not very good.

Daaamn! (Now I wish I hadn't read you comment before seeing the video, but oh well)

 

I was actually already thinking about how Disney could use a skydiving fan set-up for an Iron Man stunt show, after seeing this particular routine:

But I also thought you'd have to have the tube around, and helmets for stunt men! Having it (almost) seamlessly blending with the stage is incredible.

 

Now I still think an indoor Iron-Man show could be amazing. Add fly-boards and drones and you got it!

Hope they get that animatronic gator on the rapids ride working by tomorrow then, ha! (Too soon?) The rest of the ride collection looks great to me from the videos posted here so I bet the public will love it!

Wowowowow. I'm loving it! (Not sure about the solo singing, though.)

 

And the castle! Perfect backdrop for everything on screen.

 

There may very well be some great castle shows at this park.
