VIDEO: Set sail on Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure full ride POV from Shanghai Disneyland

in Disney, Shanghai Disneyland, Theme Parks

Shanghai Disneyland will not open its huge gates for the general public until June 16th but select guests and cast members are currently getting a chance to test out the park and its fantastic attractions. Treasure Cove is one of the lands in Shanghai Disneyland and its headlining attraction is a new version of the classic Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

In the all-new Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure ride, you will set sail for some seafaring fun that takes you on, over and under the deep blue in search of Davy Jones’ sunken plunder—all while crossing paths with pirates, mermaids and even the savage Kraken.

Landlubbers leave from the Royal Navy’s former fortress and embark on a course that passes through the mysterious Voodoo Alley and Jack’s own secret sanctuary—the Caves of Misfortune—before hitting the briny depths. This is a Pirates of the Caribbean ride like you have never seen before!

    So that looks amazing….. Absolutely Amazing.

    Incredible! When will they be replacing the US versions with this! Kidding of course, but man that is awesome!

    Also, interesting in that it seems like the boats must be separated more, to allow for some show scenes to target one boat at a time. That must reduce capacity, but seems very much worth it for the extras that provides.

    That looks absolutely amazing. Disney Imagineering at it’s finest. I hope this ride finds it’s way to at least one of the US parks!

      I believe something similar is being implemented for one of the rides at Animal Kingdom Pandora. Obviously not POTC but same boat tech.

    And, of course, the entire undersea ride means no Walt pirates, so…even the “tribute” Key dog is dead!
    But at least they kept another Blue Bayou style restaurant view…Ohh, that is so cool!

    And while Walt’s Pirates over here are untouchable, and Depp’s sequels have pretty much had it….New Ariel ride for WDW/DL. NOW. 🙂

    So once again an indoor ride spoiled by the number of people using flash photography, My wife and I had noticed how this situation was gradually getting worse on our last 3 visits to Disney World.
    Such a pity that this has selfish habit spoils things for the majority, people have become so inconsiderate towards others.
