  • Lost World River Rapids To Draw From Griizzly River Run & Uni's Jurassic Park

    Sources: Screamscape and Bluesky Disney

    Apparently the Shanghai suits love both DCA's Grizzly River Run and Universal's Jurassic Park River Adventure. They are giving the ride a highly immersive dinosaur theme, and may well feature drops similar to those featured at both GRR and IOA's river adventure. The working name for the ride is apparently Lost World River Rapids. The location is said to be toward the front of the park where the dark mountain is located to the right on Shanghai's sketchy concept art map.

    So basically it'll be like Universal Singapore's Jurassic Park River Rapids ride.

        That would be quite the exciting ride! Despite the extreme likelihood of getting soaked, I'd definitely have to go on this several times each trip (if it's done correctly, of course).

            Screamscape - usually not. LARGE grain of salt. Bluesky Disney however has a somewhat better reputation as far as I know...

              In terms of prehistoric landscape theming, Shanghai would be similar to the Singapore ride. However, shanghai would probably go all out to crate a more complex, interactive and immersoive background. It's Dinosaur AA's would likely be more creative and advanced as well. I believe we can expect the drops to be more like those at DCA's GRR, including at least one drop that would spin guests around at the same tim they are falling. Plus, we can always coung on the Shanghai "scoudrels" (ha ha) to aim for creating ride elements that are fresh and exciting.

              Indeed

              I'm with you, dland_lover. A ride like this sounds extremely repeatable. Most parks soak you at the gates. Disney parks might soak you at the gates too, but getting soaked on the rides definitely helps to make up for it!

              I listed my sources in the opening post. I beleve the first is more reliable on the average than some give it credit for. Other than that, I agree with yoyoflamingo's thoughts below...

                http://disneyandmore.blogspot.com/20...-aka-thor.html Hopefully an amazing and immersive ride similar to this, except it's a raft ride instead of a JungleCruise-like ride. I hope it will be huge and have immersive, and at the best, epic show scenes.

                  Fantastic renderings! Tom's designs are so sharp that they come to life even in the form of sketches. As you have indicated, Incrediboy, a raft ride would have far more interactive energy than a slow trek on a Jungle Cruise type of boat. The raft/rapids rise is apparently what Shanghai is aiming for.

                    From the renderings we know that there is most likely going to be a raft ride. But I am skeptical about the dinosaur theme. IMO that would make it way too similar to the Uni ride. But I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

                    My own hope would be for a variation on the Tiger River raft ride concept that got dumbed down to Kali River Rapids at Animal Kingdom.

                      Must we make a thread every time a Disney related news update appears on Screamscape?

                        A catch-all rumor thread might be good.
