We’re excited to share that the NBA Experience will officially open Aug. 12, 2019! This all-new destination coming to Disney Springs® will invite your Guests to feel what it’s like to be a basketball superstar. This one-of-a-kind environment will be packed with 13 interactive elements and hands-on activities across 44,000 square feet and two floors.
In this new video, Walt Disney Imagineer Stan Dodd shares more insight into what you can expect at NBA Experience, plus hear what has NBA players excited for this all-new destination:
And here are some new details about NBA Experience we’re sharing for the first time:
- When your Guests enter NBA Experience, they’ll feel like they’re walking through the players’ tunnel out onto the court at an NBA or WNBA arena.
- A ticket to NBA Experience grants your Guests access to every activity in any order they choose, and they can return to stations multiple times to try and improve their performance or learn more about the game, the players and the teams they love.
- In an activity that tests shooting skills, spots will light up on the court as your Guests move from one location to another attempting to sink as many shots as possible in 15 seconds.
- In a slam dunk challenge, your Guests can change the height of a standard 10-foot-tall rim to as low as seven feet so they can perform their own superstar moves – captured by burst photography.
- Your Guests can see how they stack up to some of the world’s best basketball players by measuring vertical leap, wingspan, and shooting and dribbling skills.
- Various activities can be personalized with your Guest’s name and associated with their favorite NBA or WNBA teams, and their stats will be tracked just like a real pro game.
- Real-time technology will aggregate stats of NBA and WNBA games and players for continuous updates, while leaderboards will show top NBA Experience performers throughout the day.
We’ll have more details on NBA Experience leading up to its grand opening, so stay tuned for updates.
