Crush’s Coaster is Disney’s first coaster-based attraction inspired by the Disney•Pixar film Finding Nemo.
Crush’s Coaster takes guests into the thrilling world of Crush the turtle and the East Australian Current (E.A.C.). Through a sophisticated use of show lighting, sound effects and imaging technology, Walt Disney Imagineers created the E.A.C. environment -- full of bubbles, ripples and undersea special effects that carry guests along for an exciting ride.
Guests will spin all the way through the E.A.C., and the ride will be different every time. The attraction features a gravity coaster where each vehicle spins differently, depending on how many people are in the vehicle, where they sit and how much they weigh.
Making a surprise appearance inside the attraction is Bruce the Shark, one of the largest dimensional figures in the park, at a size of 2,000 mm wide, with a huge, inviting toothy smile.
The coral scene was developed by Walt Disney Imagineers to recreate the world of Nemo and friends. First carving a detailed surface in rockwork, the reef is brought to life with more than 100 shades of black-light paint. It’s taken more than six months to create this specific scene.
Throughout the attraction guests will hear some characters speaking in French and others in English. Crush addresses visitors to his world in both languages.
Walt Disney Imagineers collaborated with Disney•Pixar Animation Studios to create a giant mural of Crush installed on the facade. It features a 7.62 meters long Crush with several of his turtle friends swimming through the East Australian Current. The entire mural will be developed as a photograph, giving it brilliant colors. It will be 27.43 meters long by 7.32 meters high.
The soundtrack of Crush’s Coaster features musical theme from Finding Nemo, arranged and recorded specially for the attraction.
