There are plenty of places to have a bite to eat and do a touch of retail therapy, but the real reason to visit Pandora is the two major attraction’s, ‘Avatar Flight of Passage’ and ‘Na’vi River Journey’.

Your job is to try and attempt to restore the banshee population to natural levels, the Avatar program has been reactivated to do the research needed, so get along to the ride, and see if you can help! Don’t worry you won’t fly too far away, you will be back to earth within 5 minute’s…
Na’vi River Journey
