New 'Wilderness Explorers' game play testing in Disney's Animal Kingdom

Sep 17, 2011 in "Disney's Animal Kingdom"

A new 'Wilderness Explorers' game has been play testing in Africa at Disney's Animal Kingdom over the last couple of days.  Based on elements of the Disney-Pixar movie "Up" including the character of Russell, the gameplay takes elements from the existing "Kid's Discovery Clubs" and a "Kim Possible"-type experience.  So far it has been a limited test, with perhaps a view to it becoming a permanent addition to the park.  This addition comes at a time when Disney are adding an interactive game to the Magic Kingdom called "Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom".  Imagineers began the concept of in-park games with the addition of the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure at Epcot back in in 2008.
