Official Description: “Glide down a gentle, mysterious river and feel a sense of wonder as the full beauty of Pandora reveals itself. Located within the Valley of Mo’ara, Na’vi River Journey offers explorers an experience that has to be seen—and heard—to be believed! As your expedition begins, climb aboard a reed boat and drift downstream. After coasting through a series of caves, and passing by exotic glowing plants and amazing creatures of the rainforest, you’ll soon find yourself face-to-face with the Na’vi Shaman of Songs. The adventure comes to a conclusion as the Shaman demonstrates her deep connection to the life force of Pandora—and sends positive energy out into the forest through the power of her music!”

Thrill level: slow rides

FastPass+: yes

Valley of Mo’ara

What about tiers? Will this cause AK to become a two tier park like Epcot or DHS?

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’.

The ride is supposed to have a lot more physical motion then Soarin’.

Have you received any update in regards to the weight limit?? My husband is a tall, good-sized guy. I would like to know due to fast pass request just to find out he would not be able to ride if there are restrictions.
Thanks in advance for the information.
