When it comes to Walt Disney World, Animal Kingdom is undoubtedly the wildest theme park around.

Magic Kingdom may be full of the quintessential Disney experiences such as the Haunted Mansion, “it’s a small world,” and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. But Animal Kingdom Park is home to real live animals currently inhabiting our amazing planet, dinosaurs of the past, and the otherworldly fauna of Pandora – The World of Avatar.

While visiting Pandora – The World of Avatar, Guests can see the mystical floating mountains, a feat of wonder brought to us by none other than Walt Disney Imagineering.

But Guests can also experience two fantastic attractions: the Na’vi River Journey and Avatar Flight of Passage.

While the Na’vi River Journey is a slow-moving dark ride through Pandora’s bioluminescent wildlife, Avatar Flight of Passage is a thrilling simulator attraction fit with outstanding visual effects and one-of-a-kind ride vehicles that truly make Guests feel as if they’re riding an ikran or a mountain banshee.

However, one Guest took ‘strap in’ a little too literally:

While Avatar Flight of Passage is an attraction we certainly wouldn’t complain about getting stuck on, we’re glad to report that the little boy wasn’t stuck on the unique ride vehicle for more than ten minutes.

All’s well that ends well in Animal Kingdom’s Pandora world.
