    Avatar Land: James Cameron Confirms 3D " Flying Attraction" That Is On The Board

    Avatar Land - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




    News is that Cameron has related that Avatar Land will feature a 3D flying attraction that includes "3D projections and creature designs that "were" cut from the original film." His use of the terms "flying attraction" and "3D procections" could mean a Soarin' ride system that utilizes 3D; or an indoor coaster and/or darkride (perhaps w/outdoor coaster component) that utilizes 3D interactive elements; or perhaps we are talking something else altogether defferent.

    Whatever the case may be, it appears likely that riders would be soaring high on dragons, and encountering the natives of Pandora, military troops and scientists from Earth, and incredible animals in the air, on land, and in the water. The immersive entertainment possibilities for this ride are....well, high as the sky! There would be a combination of animatronics and 3D
    holographic projections of Pandora's natives and animals, along with helecopters, humans, etc.

    Boy, if they combine animatronics with 3D in a major Avatar ride, Universal is going to feel REALLY sorry they dropped the animatronic robots. LOL

    Yeah. A multi-technology Avatar ride would be a smash hit.

    Dropped animatronic robots just smash apart on impact when they hit the ground.

    All of this speculation (and really, that's all it is at this point) comes from the Wikipedia article and its footnoted references.

    That;s your prerogative to say. I find it just as reliable as most news sources, if not more so. Name some news sources that you concider spot on 100% of the time.

    First, where's the proof that the validity of Wiki's Cameron quote is speculation? Second, name some news sites (blog or otherwise) that are always reliable without question, and above speculation.

    The accuracy or inaccuracy of other news sources has no bearing upon that of the AvatarLand article in Wikipedia.

    Read the footnoted articles that the Wikipedia article is based upon: what "Cameron says" can be interpreted dozens of ways. Nothing has been confirmed. It has been, and continues to be, smoke and speculation.

    The fact that we have no proof whatsoever that James Cameron said that and the fact it's on Wikipedia is enough proof for pure speculation. You do realize that anyone can go on Wikipedia and write whatever they want, right?

    Wikipedia is not reliable.

    The fact that Wiki sites it's sources makes it more reliable, and less speculative. Theme park news blogs that I know of do not list their sources a good deal of the time. If you cannot name any news blogs that are 100% reliable, am I to asume that you do not know of any?

    I don't understand that need to site a 100% reliable news source, as that has nothing to do with the fact that Wikipedia is not reliable. Just because other news sites aren't 100% reliable, doesn't make Wikipedia 100% reliable.

    Disney has not confirmed any attraction for Avatar-Land. That doesn't change because of Wikipedia.

    Oh it's delightfully on topic. You are saying that Disney has announced a 3-D flying attraction when that is just not the case.

    re: Avatar Land: James Cameron Confirms 3D " Flying Attraction" That Is On The Board

    Direct quote from the Wikipedia article linked to: "Although exact details of the attractions have not yet been announced or even devised, James Cameron confirmed that a flying attraction featuring "3-D projections and creature designs that were cut from the original film" was a concept on the drawing board for the area."

    That is a ride concept, and certainly not an official announcement by anyone involved, not even Cameron..he was speaking of a theoretical element, with many more left unsaid I am sure. Just my take on it from reading the source.
