The marquee attraction is Peter Pan’s Never Land Adventure 3D dark ride where our mission is to help Peter, Tink and the Lost Kids rescue John from Captain Hook and his band of pirates. Along the way we encounter Wendy, Michael and the mermaids before finally reaching Hook’s Jolly Roger ship for a swashbuckling showdown.

The Busy Buggies queue is filled with larger-than-life flowers, mushrooms, paint brushes and nibbled cheese to create the illusion riders have been shrunk to the size of a fairy.

“Fairy Tinker Bell’s Busy Buggies is an outdoor track ride that might give Disneyland resort fans in California flashbacks to Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train,” according to Theme Park Insider. “Again, you’re shrunk to a small size for a tour around common objects that now appear super-sized.”
