As the newest of the Disney Resorts, Shanghai Disneyland is home to some wonderfully innovative and immersive experiences for guests; Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure being one of them.
It’s no surprise that Disney announced today that yesterday the Visual Effects Society (VES) announced the winners of their annual VES Awards, honoring outstanding visual effects in motion pictures, television and other media. Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure won the award for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Special Venue Project.
Disney describes the attraction as “an all-new, innovative ride experience developed specifically for Shanghai Disneyland. The spectacle experienced on the ride is on a grand scale and involves technology that has never been used before in a theme park attraction. It includes a highly advanced propulsion system that provides unprecedented control over the position and rotation of boats carrying guests through large, dimensional set pieces combined with large-scale media screens. Integrating media produced in collaboration between Walt Disney Imagineering and Industrial Light & Magic with advanced animated figures and newly developed special effects creates a highly immersive experience.”
We don’t know about you, but it sure sounds like an amazing ride! If you get a chance to experience it, let us know how it is!
If you can’t make it to Shanghai to check out the attraction, rest assured you can still visit the classic Pirates of the Caribbean ride at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World resort here in the states.
