Dead men tell no tales…
There are so many incredible rides that guests can enjoy when they visit places like Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California. There are new rides taking the parks by storm, like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, which is located in both Disneyland Park and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Then there are the quintessential rides that truly make Disney, Disney. Rides like “it’s a small world”, the Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Space Mountain have stood the test of time. Then, there is what may be one of the most iconic rides Disney has ever created — Pirates of the Caribbean.
Pirates of the Caribbean opened in New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park in 1967. Six years later, the attraction opened in Adventureland at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. Since then, it has been one of the staple attractions guests ride during their magical vacations.
One Pirates of the Caribbean fan has gone above and beyond to express their love for the renowned Disney attraction.
Beyond the Brick touts itself as the world’s largest LEGO community. Beyond the Brick recently shared a video of someone recreating the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction located in the Magic Kingdom. And it is absolutely stunning.
Unlike the Disney World version, Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean does not start out in the tropics. Since it is in New Orleans Square, Guests travel through the bayou, before going down two drops and winding up in the land of dead pirates. From there, the ride is nearly identical to the one at the Magic Kingdom.
The fan painstakingly recreated the attraction, down to the skeleton pirates really, which bring the attraction to life. And, of course, the creator — identified as Joel Neuber — could not forget to include some Disney characters! At the beginning, guests can see Daisy Duck, Donald Duck, and Captain Hook waiting to board. And it wouldn’t be Pirates of the Caribbean without Captain Jack Sparrow.
Fans were blown away by the attention to detail, and told the man that he should work for LEGO. Many also begged him to attach a camera to the model, so guests could have a first-person POV experience of the attraction.
