    I would think there would be as a safey precaution, but as of right now that information has not been realeased. Maybe sometime in the near future they might have that, otherwise we may not know until the ride itself opens up. We will let you know when we have more info.

      I am not sure in regards to what tier Animal Kingdom will be considered as once Pandora opens. It could potentially become a 2 tiered park but as I said I’m not sure.

    Hi Ben,

    Is the banshee ride considered a thrill? I suffer from motion sickness, although I can handle Soarin’ 100% fine. I’m hoping it’s a ride similar to Soarin’.

      Yes, unfortunately Flight of Passage would be considered a “thrill ride.” I’m sorry for your suffering of motion sickness. The ride is like soarin in a sense as it brings you up towards the ceiling a bit as in soaring, but yes you do move around a lot more on Flight of Passage. You will be having the sensation of flying atop a banshee so one would assume you are going to “swoop” and “soar” on the vehicle. They have said they are trying to make it as immersive as possible where you can even feel the banshee “breathe.” I have no idea if they will have a stationary seating banshee for guest with motion sickness. If they don’t have one, I’m sry for you that you won’t be able to experience it :(

      No. Disney has not given any information out on whether or no there will be fast passes available prior to opening weekend, nor are there any leaks at this time to say if there would be. As soon as we would have fast pass info, we will share it with you guys.
