More state-of-the-art thrills can be found on the ride Avatar Flight of Pas­sage, which takes view­ers on a sim­u­lated ride on a ban­shee, the aerial preda­tor that the Na’vi bond with. The ride uses a swerv­ing seat and 3D glasses to make you feel as if you’re re­ally there. Weta, the New Zealand ef­fects com­pany re­spon­si­ble for many of the orig­i­nal fea­ture’s eye-pop­ping vi­su­als, did the an­i­ma­tion. As you fly through the air, wind blows into your face. Deeper in the for­est, that dis­tinct smell of damp soil is pumped into the air. And when your ban­shee gets near water, drops of it hit you. The ma­chine be­neath your seat and be­tween your legs ex­pands and con­tracts to give the im­pres­sion that the ban­shee is breath­ing un­der­neath you.
