Disney announced their plans to add an Avatar area to their Animal Kingdom theme park just over a year ago. However, there hasn’t been much movement since then and that’s allegedly due in part to James Cameron having a different vision than the Imagineers. However, it appears that the filmmaker has finally given his blessing to the plans and the park can move towards construction.
To that effect, a pair of blueprints showing “Avatar Land” have been leaked and they reveal plans for attractions including a water ride and a 3D simulator. The authenticity of these plans have not been verified, but it’s fun to think about the possibilities! Slashfilm breaks the plans down:
These are all slight variations of the same space which, according to Stitch Kingdom, will take over Camp Minnie-Mickey at Animal Kingdom. The entire left side of these blueprints, if you zoom in, features four huge theaters with two screens apiece. Below that, you can see there’s a Glasses Cleaning area. Putting two and two together and it’s likely some kind of 3D simulator along the lines of Star Tours, but on a larger scale, like Soarin’. Across the way, in the upper right corner, you’ll see a track that looks like some sort of water ride, maybe along the lines of Jungle Cruise.
Check out the blueprints after the break and see what you think.
