“Pirates of the Caribbean” Tim Delaney

Long before Shanghai Disneyland’s incredible Treasure Cove area debuted in 2016, the original arrival of Pirates in China was to be in a planned “Pirates Cove” at Hong Kong Disneyland. The headliner attraction, of course, would have been a modern take on the classic Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Shown here in a concept by Tim Delaney, the flume ride would’ve featured a massive splashdown from the fiery peak of a skull-encrusted mountain into a shipwreck lagoon. This project, originally envisioned as Part Four of the expansion plan that included Mystic Point, Grizzly Gulch and Toy Story Land, was shelved and later expanded upon for Shanghai.
