DisneySea opens to Japanese tourists

Posted Wednesday, September 5, 2001 5:04 AM | Contributed by Jeff

The new sea-themed park DisneySea opened yesterday just outside of Tokyo. Dismal weather kept the crowd level low, but the park is expected to enjoy success similar to Tokyo Disneyland and Universal Studios.

DisneySea looks spectacular and the rides seem to all be completely original and unique. Toyko DisneySea is going to be the premiere park of the southern hemisphere, but it need some extreme coasters. The theming for the park is in in the upper echelon of theme parks, on the same level as IOA.

It looks great, but theres no rides.  Indy is the same as Cali's, Stormrider is a motion Simulator, Journey to the Center of the earth is Testrack themed to rainbow plants and animals, and 20,000 Leagues is an underwater created environment that uses no water.  That one is the only thing that impresses me about the park.

No rides??

Are you kidding?

Indy has the same layout as both Countdown to Extinction and it's California partner. The storyline is different, and it features a whole entire series of new effects. It looks incredible.

Stormrider, while technically a motion simulator, looks like it could revolutionize the genre. Remember, these are 80 person cabins that move inside a domed theater. . . I think, anyway :)

Journey to the Center of the Earth is apparently the weakest attraction in the park. I haven't seen many photos.

20K Leagues is astonishing. It uses a variant of EMV technology in a dry 'wet' environment. The cars are suspended from an overhead rail and all. . . very promising.

Additionally, there's The Seven Voyages of Sinbad, which is just rife with audio-animatronics, Aquatopia, the entire enclosed part of Triton's Kingdom and the astounding beauty of the park is an attraction in itself.

That Flounder coaster is out of place, and should they even consider putting a roller coaster in that place, I'll slap them silly.
