Time FrameSpring 2013
A new interactive game is coming soon to Disney's Animal Kingdom. The new game is inspired by the Disney Pixar movie Up and will be called Wilderness Explorers.
The Disney Parks blog confirmed that a new game will be arriving at Disney's Animal Kingdom this Spring. The game is known as Wilderness Explorers and will loosely be based on the Pixar movie Up.
Guests will be given a Wilderness Explorers Guidebook that will be used to identify more than 30 locations where they can acquire badges as part of the game. The game will soon replace the Kid's Discovery Club locations as various tasks will allow them to earn each of the badges throughout the park.
Previously signage for the game had appeared throughout the park's animal areas like Pangani Forest. Photos of the previous locations can be found in the following MiceAge article by Kevin Yee.
