Disney is developing a theme park based around the world of Avatar. The engineers are still working on the designs so I have some suggestions. After the list you might have some too
In 2011, James Cameron and The Walt Disney Company's chief executive officer, Bob Iger, announced they'll be adding Avatar-themed attractions in Walt Disney Parks & Resorts. The area is set to cost approximately $500 million. Construction is expected to begin in 2013, with a planned opening date in 2015 after the next two sequels.
Avatar Land is expected to span several acres and will feature multiple rides and attractions, entertainment, audio-animatronics, 3-D holograms as well as retail, food and beverage outlets.
Guys dress in costumes and on stilts could make themselves look like the 9 foot-tall Na'vi. Probably they should stay away from female Na'vi since they don't cover their breasts. They would speak in the complex Na'vi language.
The Floating Mountains
The Hallelujah Mountains (Na'vi name: Ayram alusìng meaning "Floating Mountains") are floating islands that circulate slowly in the magnetic currents. A motion ride or a roller coaster traveling through them would be amazing. This is also the roost of the flying Mountain Banshees, which means you could pass by a roost or group of them during the ride.
The Hometree could be located roughly at the center of the park. It would be the "central hub" of Disney's Avatar Park, connecting all of the other sections of the park. Several stories high, visitors could explore the catacombs and visit gift shops for a stuffed Leonopteryx. Visitors could interact with the Na'vi as they sleep, eat, weave, dance, and celebrate their connection to Eywa.
Marine Base is the park's main entrance. Along with providing various guest services, the Base features a number of animal habitats. Guests could encounter Fan Lizard, Hammerhead Titanothere (Hippo-Like), Hexapede (Deer-like), Prolemuris (Blue Lemurs) and the dog-like Thantor. The main paths lead deeper into the park, and onto Discovery Island.
Avatar Cafe could also be located at the entrance of the Oasis. Guests may dine at the restaurant without entering Disney's Avatar Park, while guests entering the restaurant from within the theme park are actually exiting the park and must present their admission tickets to return to the park. Foods inspired by Na'vi native diet is served while still having traditional burgers and fries. All the servers dress like Marines.
Camp Pandora is themed as a rustic camp for kids. Here guests could meet Avatar characters like Sully, Neytiri and others. Besides the little Direhorse and Banshee ride is the Festival of the Great Leonopteryx, a live stage show featuring acrobatics and musical performances inspired by the large flying creatures culminating in a large red Toruk doing the finale.
Nighttime would be amazing since everything in the park, including the Na'vi, would glow. The floating jellyfish-like Woodsprites could float among the guests.
Climbing through Hometree, eating Na'vi food and riding Banshees? Add all these things and who wouldn't want to go? It would make a bazillion dollars.
What do you think? Did you like Avatar? What would you like to see in an Avatar theme park?
