Shanghaî Disneyland Treasure Cove and POTC Ride Update

Short news about Shanghaî Disneyland Treasure Cove from Shanghai Daily. In what we didn't knew already, except a short synopsis about the POTC "Battle for the Sunken Treasure" ride, you'll note that POTC boats will be able "to spin, travel sideways, and even move backwards" and i won't be surprised if the fall "under the sea" would be done backwards. It will be more surprising for the riders who will not expect it and probably also will solve some technical issues, like "how can we hide the hole for the fall before the boat gets into it". Advanced Audio-Animatronics can also be expected:

"Shanghai Disney Resort will have its first pirate-themed park with two giant ships and will also include an acrobatic performance.

The Treasure Cove will narrate piracy stories dating back to the 17th century in the Caribbean. Visitors will get to explore the Shipwreck Shore, Fort Snobbish, Landlubber Landing and the Village of pirates.

The theme park also features two giant ships, pirate-themed restaurants and a water play area. Visitors can watch epic scenes in Pirates of the Caribbean – Battle for the Sunken Treasure, as well as the other action and acrobatics show at El Teatro Fandango.

Battle for the Sunken Treasure is a spectacular indoor boat ride that will take visitors on a rollicking adventure with Captain Jack Sparrow to steal the priceless treasure of Davy Jones.

In the new, highly controlled ride, the boats can spin, travel sideways, and even move backwards to create a highly personalized experience.

Disney's patented Audio-Animatronics and recent advancements in robotic technology will bring these pirates to a new level of realistic performance, the resort said.

Visitors can also paddle real canoes through the waters of Treasure Cove. Captains will lead each canoe and point out scenic highlights along the way.

Furthermore, the “Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular” will have its global premiere at Shanghai Disneyland. The stage production features sword fighting, stunning visual effects and a whirlwind finale. »

Stay tuned on Disney and more as we'll talk again soon about Treasure Cove with new artworks!
