Shanghai Disneyland, the first Disney park on the Chinese mainland, will feature scenes and characters from the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, Shanghai Disney Resort announced.
The first-ever pirates-themed land in any Disney park will be named “Treasure Cove," according to a press release.
A major attraction at the Treasure Cove will be “Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle of the Sunken Treasure." This is a boat ride that incorporates new effects and technologies, and guests will be enlisted to travel with Captain Jack Sparrow on an epic journey to find Captain Davy Jones' treasure.
Today also marks the completion of the key structural work on the pirates attraction.
Bill Ernest, president and managing director for Asia with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts said the resort's theme park will be home to “a first new themed land and attraction, inspired by the phenomenal Pirates of the Caribbean movies that were originally inspired by a Disney attraction."
“It is truly unique to Shanghai Disney Resort," added Ernest.
Fan Xiping, chairman of Shanghai Shendi Group, Disney's Chinese joint venture partner in Shanghai Disney Resort said, it was exciting “to see the Disney Imagineering team collaborate with local talents, in building this modern and innovative park.’’—Xinhua
