Lace-up your sneakers and pack your favorite jersey, the NBA Experience at Disney Springs will officially open on August 12, 2019!
This one-of-a-kind environment will be packed with 13 interactive elements and hands-on activities across 44,000 square feet and two floors. This all-new interactive experience will allow you to feel what it’s like to be an NBA superstar by combining NBA action with Disney theme park magic.
Here are just some of the great activities that you and your family can experience:
- When you enter the NBA Experience, you will feel like you are walking through the players’ tunnel out onto the court at an NBA or WNBA arena.
- A ticket to NBA Experience grants you access to every activity in any order you choose, and you can return to stations multiple times to try and improve your performance or learn more about the game, the players and the teams you love.
- In an activity that tests shooting skills, spots will light up on the court as you move from one location to another attempting to sink as many shots as possible in 15 seconds.
- In a slam dunk challenge, you can change the height of a standard 10-foot-tall rim to as low as seven feet so you can perform your own superstar moves – captured by burst photography.
- You can see how you stack up to some of the world’s best basketball players by measuring vertical leap, wingspan, and shooting and dribbling skills.
- Various activities can be personalized with your name and associated with their favorite NBA or WNBA teams, and their stats will be tracked just like a real pro game.
- Real-time technology will aggregate stats of NBA and WNBA games and players for continuous updates, while leaderboards will show top NBA Experience performers throughout the day.
- Play interactive basketball games, from the fan-favorite Pop-A-Shot to modern video games
- Test your knowledge of the NBA and WNBA – past and present – during a trivia game with up to 25 participants competing against one another to be champion.
