Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure at Shanghai Disneyland Receives Visual Effects Society Award

Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure

Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure at Shanghai Disneyland has received the award for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Special Venue Project from the Visual Effects Society (VES). The Disney Parks Blog describes this attraction in the following way:

Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure is an all-new, innovative ride experience developed specifically for Shanghai Disneyland. The spectacle experienced on the ride is on a grand scale and involves technology that has never been used before in a theme park attraction. It includes a highly advanced propulsion system that provides unprecedented control over the position and rotation of boats carrying guests through large, dimensional set pieces combined with large-scale media screens. Integrating media produced in collaboration between Walt Disney Imagineering and Industrial Light & Magic with advanced animated figures and newly developed special effects creates a highly immersive experience.

This isn’t the only award this attraction has been awarded. Last fall the Themed Entertainment Association awarded it the ate Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement – Attraction. Various incarnations of this attraction can be found at different Disney theme parks around the globe including the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris (when it returns from refurbishment) and the original Disneyland Resort. The original attraction is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary.
