Ride Guide - Peter Pans Flight
Situated in Fantasyland, opposite It’s a Small World, Peter Pan’s Flight is a ride through the film version of J. M. Barrie’s classic story, Peter Pan. You sail through the skies aboard your very own pirate ship as you explore all of the areas of the story, with different scenes coming to life through audio-animatronic figures.
The ride is inside and is a dark ride and this really helps to bring out the vividness of the colours used in the different scenes around the ride. At the entrance to the ride, you climb aboard your ship from a moving walkway and you ride with either two or three people per vessel. At the end of the walkway, the ship soars up into the air and you are quickly flying over the night sky over London.
The gentle floating motion of the ride as you move up and down and gently side to side really gives the sensation of flying above the scenes below. The scenes are all instantly recognisable, starting with flying over the nursery with Nanny barking away outside and then over London itself, with moving traffic and many famous landmarks to spot. You then follow Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Wendy and the boys off to Neverland.
Flying over Neverland the colours used are really very lively and bright and the black-lighting used helps bring everything to life. The scenes that you fly over remind you off the mermaid pool and the Indian camp. Then the main drama happens when we approach Captain Hook’s Pirate ship, complete with masts, sails and Peter Pan and Captain Hook battling it out in the rigging! While Peter and Captain Hook are engaged in hand to hand combat, the Darling children are being held captive by the pirate crew, with them all tied to the main mast. Will they escape . . . well, you’ll need to do the ride to find out. Let’s just say that Captain Hook does meet up with his old friend the crocodile again!
This is a really enjoyable ride and a great one for all the family. It is quite a short ride, lasting only a couple of minutes. What is always surprising about this ride, however, is the length of the queue that always exists with people waiting to ride it. There is no real pre-show area to entertain the people in line, so it is purely just standing and waiting, but wait times up to 120 minutes are not uncommon. Thankfully there is the FastPass system available for this ride, so I would definitely make use of this, get FastPasses for the ride and go off and do other rides in Fantasyland or Liberty Square area.
