Disney have recently announced that they will be closing DisneyQuest at Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney).
DisneyQuest offers guests a chance to pay a once time fee and play unlimited arcade games, among other thrilling activities. One of the most popular attractions within DisneyQuest is Cyber Space Mountain, where guests can design their own roller coaster and then ride it in a simulator that turns upside down.
The official closing date of DisneyQuest is July 3, 2017.
There were originally two DisneyQuest locations built when the chain was introduced by the company. One at Downtown Disney and another in Chicago which operated from 1999 until being closed in 2001.
Disney currently have plans to build an NBA experience in its place, that is currently under development.
Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director for the Disney Parks blog, tells us that, “The NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort will be a one-of-a-kind basketball-themed experience featuring hands-on activities that put guests of all ages right in the middle of NBA game action. There will be immersive NBA video productions and numerous interactive experiences, as well as a restaurant and a retail store.”
As Disney Springs continues to develop, we can expect a couple more changes to the area.
