Frozen World ride adds to ‘cool’ Florida attractions

11th December 2014 Print

The ‘cool’ blockbuster movie Frozen is set to be brought to life and become a f-f-fantastic hit in Disney’s Epcot theme park, Florida.

The new Frozen World ride, which is sure to feature the favourite characters, Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and snowman Olaf, from Disney’s hit film, is coming to the Norway pavilion, Disney has announced.

Exact details of Frozen World, which is replacing Maelstrom, the Norwegian-themed boat ride that closed in October, are yet to be revealed, but industry experts predict it should be ready by early 2016.

Garrett Kenny, Chief Executive Officer of leading Florida real estate developer and agent, Feltrim Group, says, “Orlando’s world-class theme parks are always a red-hot attraction and visitors want to be close to the major attractions, which is why buy-to-let real estate in convenient locations is a top target for domestic and overseas investors.

“With Disney World, Universal, SeaWorld, Legoland and other major theme parks all in the area, it’s no wonder that Orlando is the theme park capital of the world.”

There is no doubting that Frozen, which tells the story of the fictional characters is Arendelle, is incredibly popular, as the movie has grossed more than $4billion in cinemas since it opened exactly a year ago, according to the website.

Tom Staggs, Chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, explains on the Disney Parks blog, “The new attraction, which replaces Maelstrom, will take our guests to Arendelle and immerse them in many of their favorite moments and music from the film.

“The pavilion will also include a royal greeting location where Anna and Elsa can meet our guests. We think these Frozen elements are great complements to the Norway Pavilion, which showcases the country and region that inspired the film.”

Epcot attracted 11.2million guests in 2013, according to Themed Entertainment Association, which means it is Florida's second most popular theme park after Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
