> Rango's West
Rango's West continues the recent theme park trend of basing entire lands on a single movie property (i.e. the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Toy Story Land, A Bug's Land, Cars Land, Avatar Land).
As recently as March, the Rango's West area had a Lost Valley theme featuring a "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" interactive attraction and a "Beowulf"-inspired coaster called Dragon's Legend. No word if those rides will show up in other areas of Paramount Park.
Among the attractions in Rango's West:
Rango's Rapids - The now-familiar raft ride takes riders down a churning white-water river through desert buttes and valleys. Landlubbers standing on bridges will be able to fire water cannons at already-soaked riders as they float past.
Rango's 4D Theater - Rango the chameleon sheriff stars in "How the West Was Sung," a musical journey through Paramount's vault of classic American western movies.
Spirit of the West - The traditional mine train coaster travels through an American Wild West town and around desert buttes.
Poppin' Corn - A children's drop tower ride with a popcorn theme.
Water play area - Children frolic in water jets set amid oversized tin cans, frying pans and teapots.
> Woodland Fantasy
The magic-themed land set in a Medieval European village will feature an extensive hedge maze dotted with children's rides.
Among the attractions in Woodland Fantasy:
Stardust's Magician Workshop - A stage show set in a magician's workshop sounds a whole lot like Ollivander's Wand Shop at Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida.
Spiderwick Chronicles - Visitors use a magic wand to battle a hideous horned beast in this interactive dark ride based on the series of children's books and the 2008 fantasy film.
Sleepy Hollow: Headless Horseman's Revenge - Horse and rider come crashing through a window in this 3-D movie housed in a creepy village perpetually shrouded in fog.
Fairytale Journey - Families search for fairies on this indoor boat ride through a twinkling forest.
Carousel - A merry-go-round featuring whimsical imaginary creatures like sea dragons and winged horses.
Happy Tree - A play land for kids dominated by a large tree. A number of classic carnival rides stand nearby.
> Plaza Futura
The neon-tinged futuristic land focuses on science fiction fantasy and outer space flights of fancy.
Among the attractions in Plaza Futura:
Starfleet Recruiting Center - The "Star Trek" motion simulator ride takes recruits on a journey through outer space similar to the Star Tours ride at Disney parks.
War of the Worlds - A 4-D show based on the 2005 Steven Spielberg alien invasion movie.
Paranormal Activity - A 3-D show based on the 2007 supernatural horror movie about a suburban couple haunted by a demonic presence.
Warp Speed - This launch coaster rockets riders through a wormhole on a spaceship-themed train.
Quasar Force - An outer space-themed indoor coaster that appears to be based on a Wild Mouse-style track layout.
