The one-of-a-kind indoor interactive fun and gaming attraction Disney Quest closes forever, making way for a brand new basketball experience, namely The NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort. This is something that fans are aware of since 2015 when Disney had revealed its intent for the first time to stop running Disney Quest and use the venue to create a unique NBA entertainment complex instead. Now with the recent announcement it becomes clear that Disney Quest is available for us until it closes forever on July 3, 2017
Located at Disney Springs West Side Neighborhood, Disney Quest has been a great source of entertainment for all the guests. The 5 story attraction houses some of the most unique gaming experiences, featuring fantasy adventure games, virtual reality and classic arcade games across four distinct play zones (Explore Zone, Score Zone, Create Zone and Replay Zone). There is something special for everyone on each floor of the landmark building. Among the many great Disney Quest highlights include a life-size game, CyberSpace Mountain, Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam, design-your-own-roller-coaster motion-simulator ride and many other arcade video games.
Since inception Disney Quest is considered as a landmark attraction that Disney Springs (previously Downtown Disney) area has to offer. However, it started to appear dated with time, and for many the big-time attraction fell victim to the constantly changing technological needs of the hour. There are others who think Disney Quest had lost its “wow” factor with time as well. Moreover, given the multi-year Disney Springs transformation program, and with more and more fresh and new venues popping up one after the other, it becomes a tough choice for Disney to continue with many of the older attractions in the area. It’s true that Disney Quest may cease to exist on July 3, 2017, but then it’s leaving for good. There are many new and incredible experiences waiting to take their turn, and the NBA Experience is definitely the perfect substitute to start with.
The NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort is a never-before basketball-themed attraction, featuring hands on activities, high-tech immersive experiences, including a restaurant and a retail store. The new attraction will put you right in the middle of your favorite NBA actions. Officialticketcenter.com will bring to you more on this as and when Disney make further revelations, including the announcement of its opening.
