Hong Kong Disneyland Opens New Grizzly Gulch Attraction
HongKong Disneyland will open a new attraction Grizzly Gulch on July 14. This will be the second and largest of three themed areas built as part of the resort’s US$460 million expansion plan.
Grizzly Gulch, which comes less than a year after the November 2011 debut of Toy Story Land, was created exclusively for the resort. Set in a Wild West-inspired landscape, it will feature a welcome show, photographic points, F&B outlets and the Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars, which are 24-pax terrain-style coasters running through the entire zone.
The themed land reminisces an abandoned mining town called "Grizzly Gulch", set amidst mountains and woods. The centerpiece structure will be Grizzly Peak, inspired by Disney California Adventure Park. The town was set to be founded 8 August 1888 — the luckiest day of the luckiest month of the luckiest year — by prospectors looking to discover gold.
To drive awareness of Grizzly Gulch, the resort will leverage on webinars and online videos to showcase the new attraction to over 2,000 trade partners in the region. Three preview days for the travel trade will also be held consecutively in July.
The third themed area, Mystic Point, is scheduled to open in 2013.
