Disneyland Anaheim celebrates this week-end the 50th Anniversary of Pirates of Caribbean, and here is something great for you, though related to DLP POTC version: Lionel Biondani is a big fan of Disneyland Paris Pirates of Caribbean, and with the help of Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 , he did this awesome CGI re-creation of the FULL ride.
Lionel did surely a great job and not only all the scenes of the ride are there but as you’ll see he also added few elements here and there which are not in the ride. The boat doesn’t have the exact same design than the one of the ride but i presume this was not possible as the roller Coaster Tycoon 3 software probably have pre-programmed boat design.
As for the sounds, they come from some videos filmed by visitors on the ride. Lionel had to choose several parts and mix them for quality reasons and to make it fit for each scenes he recreated. He also used some sample of BGM to make it more immersive!
Those of you who don't do this may not know it but what you're going to see is a HUGE work which takes several months to do, specially when it's done as well as Lionel did. Enjoy the ride!
