Shanghai Disney announces plans for pirate-theme park

Shanghai, Nov 16 (IANS) Shanghai Disney Resort has announced plans for the construction of its first pirate-themed park with two giant ships, the media reported on Monday.

According to authorities, “The Treasure Cove” will narrate piracy stories dating back to the 17th century in the Caribbean. Visitors will get to explore the Shipwreck Shore, Fort Snobbish, Landlubber Landing and the Village of pirates, reported.

The theme park will also feature two giant ships, pirate-themed restaurants and a water play area. Visitors can watch epic scenes in Pirates of the Caribbean – Battle for the Sunken Treasure, as well as the other action and acrobatics show at El Teatro Fandango.

Battle for the Sunken Treasure is a spectacular indoor boat ride that will take visitors on a rollicking adventure with Captain Jack Sparrow to steal the priceless treasure of Davy Jones.

Disney’s patented Audio-Animatronics and recent advancements in robotic technology will bring these pirates to a new level of realistic performance, the resort said.

Visitors can also paddle real canoes through the waters of Treasure Cove. Captains will lead each canoe and point out scenic highlights along the way.

Furthermore, the “Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular” will have its global premiere at Shanghai Disneyland. The stage production features sword fighting, stunning visual effects and a whirlwind finale.
