Future World Rides & Attractions

 

 
ATTRACTION: Turtle Talk with Crush.
WHERE: The Seas Pavilion
RESTRICTIONS: Fun for all.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Guests may remain in wheelchair. Each show is 12 minutes long and a new show starts every 20 minutes.

turtle-talkThe attraction takes place inside a theatre featuring a large “window to the ocean” (the movie screen). Kids are encouraged to sit up front so that they will have a better view of Crush. After taking your seat, watch Crush swim to the window from his ocean home and begin taking questions and chatting with audience members.  Crush can communicate directly—in real time—and hold unique, improvised conversations with audience members. Kids will get a kick out of the character talking directly to them, identifying them by the colour of their shell (their clothing). No two shows are alike.
 
He’s got personality plus!  He’s Crush from the Disney film “Finding Nemo,” and he’s the star of this attraction. The 152-year-old turtle recognizes guests and asks them questions about themselves and the human world. Crush also answers human’s questions about his world.
