Pirates of the Caribbean to undergo changes at Disney's Magic KingdomSubmitted by Nick Sim on Thursday, September 20, 2012 08:18
Walt Disney World has announced that the Pirates of the Caribbean dark ride at the Magic Kingdom is to be updated with a new element from the latest film in the franchise.
The Disney Parks Blog reports that a mystery character or item from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will be added to the classic attraction. It will be the latest addition to the ride, which already hosts other characters from the movies that it inspired.
The latest update remains shrouded in mystery, with candidates including appearances from the mermaids that terrorize the movie's heroes and a shrunken version of the Black Pearl ship.
Walt Disney World is currently installing a second Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Dubbed The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, it will will be a walkthrough experience based on the movies, rather than the original theme park ride. It is expected to offer guests a view of key moments in the films from the perspective of Captain Jack Sparrow.
