About The World of Chima
Set in a faraway, mystical land inhabited by different tribes of animals, Chima is the world where CHI flows. CHI is a powerful energy source that gives the animals extraordinary powers, but now this peaceful land is in danger because the crocodiles want to have the CHI all to themselves.
- At The Quest for CHI, guests will board watercrafts to become a part of the story, engaging in an interactive soaking battle through The World of Chima for the powerful energy source, CHI.
- Outside of the main attraction guests will be able to unleash the power and race handheld ripcord vehicles at SpeedorzTM Arena.
- Families will be further immersed in the story with the chance to meet characters Laval the Lion Prince and Cragger the Crocodile King, splash and play in Cragger’s Swamp play area and experience a 4-D Chima movie.
