Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold

This virtual reality attraction recreates and enhances the Pirates of the Caribbean experience, allowing you to be a pirate in search of treasure on the high seas. You enter into a room that has the front portion of a Pirate ship with six cannons, three on each side. One person in the group is the Captain and he or she does not have a cannon available. 

As the show begins, a ghost gives you instructions on how to be successful in sinking the other ships to get their treasure. The ghost tells you to get close to the ships to have a better chance of sinking them.  The advice is good, but it is best to try to get to a ship side to side not head to head-your cannons don't fire straight when aiming at center screen. Shoot for the sails of the boats as well the hulls. When a boat is sunk you will see it go under and it's treasure will appear on your bow.

The ghost reappears towards the end and informs that you have to fight him to keep your treasure. A ghost ship then appears and flying skeletons zealously move towards your bow to get your treasure. You must shoot them; it is the only way to get to protect your booty. At the end of your battle, your score is tallied and your ranking is revealed.

All in all, the Pirates of The Caribbean Search for Buccaneer Gold is a wonderful addition to DisneyQuest-get there early though; the line gets long really quick.




Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride

When you wait years for something, and it still exceeds your expectations, you know it's a great attraction...Aladdin's Magic Carpet ride is a great attraction.  For a few years, Epcot guests could experience a virtual reality magic carpet ride through Agrabah (from Aladdin) as part of an animation attraction. That was in preparation for this attraction. Now, guests can experience this for themselves. You are divided into 3 groups of 4 people each. You are seated on what appears to be a weird motorcycle with a control wheel in front of you (this allows you to go up, down and side to side). You fit the virtual reality helmet onto your head, and your ready for action. True to VR technology, you can look up and down, and side to side, to see your fellow teammates (all of whom appear as Abu the Monkey, each in a different colored vest). Your job is to explore through Agrabah to release the Genie, who is trapped in the cave of wonders. The entire experience lasts 4 1/2 minutes, and is worth ANY wait to experience.  Note: There are only 2 groups of 4 stations in the Chicago attraction, and there will only be 2 groups in Philadelphia when it opens.

Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride

Virtual Jungle Cruise

The Explore Zone boasts the Virtual Jungle Cruise. Guests get into rafts that are positioned in front of large projection screens. The raft actually sits on an air mattress that moves to the motion of waves, to give you the real feeling of being on a rafting expedition. Each guest is also handed a paddle. As the ride begins, the air mattress under your raft inflates, which does a good job of simulating water motion. Guests must use their paddles to control the raft. For example, if the guests on the right side of the boat paddle, your view on the screen will go to the left, and vice versa. You're mission is to see how far down the river you can get before the end. Your mission begins in a virtual DisneyLand (complete with castle in the background). As you proceed, you go back in time to the land of the dinosaurs. You experience some pretty heavy rapids, going over some waterfalls, through caves, and much more. The raft will respond to everything you see on the screen (including spurts of water where appropriate). All in all...it's great fun. NOTE: This attraction is not in Chicago or Philadelphia

Virtual Jungle Cruise

Treasure of the Incas
Here again, Disney proves that they can do ANYTHING.  To the right of the Virtual Jungle Cruise, you will notice a bank of monitors with steering wheels. If you look down as you walk over to them, you will see the floor is glass enclosed, and covers a maze with small, remote controlled vehicles moving about. There are small cameras positioned inside those trucks, and the monitors and steering wheels against the wall control them. You maneuver your truck around the maze in an effort to find Inca treasure.  When you find treasure, you simply pull up to it to collect it.  This attraction also issues tickets which can be redeemed for prizes. 

Score Zone

Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam
Height Requirement : 48"
Up to 12 players stand on platforms that move, and control their representation in a pinball game that is displayed on a huge screen in front of them. Also, there is one ADA station that guests of all heights can use a joystick to control their pinball.

Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam

Daytona U.S.A.

This is the Sega driving game that was formerly located in Innoventions at Epcot.  Up to 8 players can compete in a big screen driving game.

Ride the Comix

This gives you the ability to immerse yourself in a comic book world via virtual reality.  You handle a saber, which you use to fight various villains.  The animation and control in this game are excellent.  But..be warned, if you have a bad back, the seats you rest on are very uncomfortable, and could give you some problems.


Invasion! An Extraterrorestrial Encounter

This is an attraction where three gunners and one pilot attempt to rescue as many colonists as possible and neutralize (yes, neutralize) as many aliens as you can in 3 1/2 minutes.  A minimum of two people is recommended. 

Create Zone

Radio Disney Song-maker
Located in the Create Zone, this attraction will allow guests to create an original song by selecting the style of music, song title, lyrics, and either a male or female singer.  You will be able to mix and match from more than 2 billion different combinations to create a truly unique song .  Once finished, you can purchase your song (complete in it's own Jewel case, and you can even select the art work for the cover!).  The CD can then be purchased at the Guest Gallery!

CyberSpace Mountain
Height Requirement of 51"
On this amazing attraction, you step up to a console, and are guided through the process of creating your own roller coaster by the virtually annoying Bill Nye the Science Guy. You have the option of inserting corkscrews, loops, breaks in the track, speed up sections and straight-aways to build "the ultimate roller coaster". You can also take the easy way out and use a predesigned coaster (but that's not as fun as creating your own!). Once finished, you step up to a pitch and roll simulator, where you RIDE the roller coaster you just created, complete with every 360 degree turn and bank you create. The experience is  AWESOME. This will certainly rank as one of the highlights at Disney Quest.

Animation Academy

Up to 18 guests can take a mini-course in animation.  Guests are seated at computer desks, and are given instruction in how to draw like a Disney animator.  When you're finished, you can go to the Guest Gallery and pick up your masterpiece, along with a certificate of completion.

Sid's Create A Toy

Here, you walk up to any one of about 10 consoles and use a joystick to navigate through all the doll parts strewn about Sid's room. You can pick up various pieces to create your own doll. When you are finished, you can go to the Guest Gallery (which is different from GUEST SERVICES) area and purchase the doll you just created !!  There are 64 unique items (this refers to common parts...every arm has a matching counterpart, so it's only counted once) to use in creating your doll!!  There are some neat features to several of the parts.  For example, the baby doll head has eyes that blink, skeleton parts glow in the dark, the wheels actually roll.  Toy kits come with extra connectors so you can stick all the appendages out of one socket, or put two toys together (this is only available if you purchase more than one toy..there is no option in the game for this).

Magic Mirror

You sit in front of a mirror, then have your picture taken (which appears on a screen in front of you).  From there you have all sorts of tools to distort your face, add different eyes, ears, noses, mouths, etc.   At the end, you can opt to purchase your picture at the Guest Gallery. 

Living Easels

Replay Zone

Buzz Lightyear's AstroBlaster
Height Requirement of 51"
This is a slightly modified version of old fashioned bumper cars, except here they are called "astroblasters".  Instead of just bumping into your opponent, you can shoot big nerf like balls at them called "asteroids".  The asteroids are collected as you drive over them.  The objective is to aim at the pink starbursts on the front and sides of your opponents astroblaster, when firing.  A direct hit causes your opponent to lose control and spin 360 degrees.  The astroblaster has Plexiglas windows and seats 2.

Midway on the Moon

This is set up in much the same style as a standard arcade.  This is a great location for younger kids, with games like Skee-Ball which issue you coupons that can be redeemed for prizes.

IntergalacTicket Trading Post

The tickets that you win on games in the Midway and at other locations throughout DisneyQuest, can be traded here for prizes.
