The working title for now is "Nav'i River Journey"
No. It is still being called "Flight of Passage"
The leaked blueprints show this entering the E-ticket ride building. The question is, is this the only indoor portion of the attraction.
Assuming that the leaked blueprints accurately reflect the currently being developed plans.
I say that because there was a significant period of time (probably 9 months or so) between the leak and when we heard that Cameron and Disney had finally agreed to proceed. And we have insiders saying that the deal was close to collapsing during that time. I personally suspect that Cameron was not happy with the plans from the leaked blueprint period and eventually got Disney to agree to something "better". So, I'm hesitant to believe that the leaked plans are definitely what is being developed.
You could be right. This is all speculation.
"Better" however could have been a proper allocation of budget toward the secondary attraction. Better three dimensional set theming on a family boat ride costs big bucks and will be a massive hit if done right.
Agreed. "Better" is very vague and could be any number of things. It might be just better detailing of the land and on the rides. I don't think any of us know and I don't recall any reliable insider providing much information about the current state of the project. In fact IIRC, there is a lot of secrecy surrounding it, so leaks might be hard to come by for some time.
I'm not dismissing that the leaked plans could be what we end up seeing built more or less; only that I'm leery of automatically assuming that is what is being developed. It's certainly conceivable that the currently plans are highly modified from that or even altogether different.
is your vehicle an ikran? I could forgive it being soarin 2.0 if I step on an anamatronic ikran for the journey.
I think Soarin 2.0 is selling it short. Just because it is screen based doesn't make it Soarin.
I agree with you - a highly themed ride vehicle would be awesome!
Horizons did Soarin' MUCH better than Soarin' does Soarin'... in 1983I agree. This ride/show apparatus is extremely unlike Soarin. If we hadn't had Soarin first, and they used this system, people would be blown away. Calling it Soarin 2.0 is like calling any Disney coaster "Matterhorn 2.0"
That sounds like a pretty wild opinion. For its time, the Horizons tech was amazing, but to compare that to Soarin is like comparing apples to bricks. Yes, Horizons had a large screen, but that is where the similarities end.Horizons did Soarin' MUCH better than Soarin' does Soarin'... in 1983
