    How strong are the G Forces on Flight of Passage? My dad has eye issues and cannot ride on strong G force rides. But he really wants to ride FoP. Any insight?

    Hi Jamie,
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm to glad you stopped by with your question.

    Avatar Flight of Passage is an unbelievable attraction in the Pandora area of Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. I actually just rode Flight of Passage last weekend, so I can give you some insight into this attraction.

    Flight of Passage is a virtual reality experience that offers an incredible ride on a banshee. It's shockingly realistic and makes you feel as if you are actually flying on the back of an animal through your Avatar.  Truthfully, it's an entirely virtual experience with no real dips or turns, and no g-forces.  A pair of glasses helps provide a 3-D experience.  If your dad is bothered by directed plumes of air blowing in his eyes (this gives you the flying sensation, as if the wind is rushing on your face), you may want to have him take a rain check on this experience.  Otherwise, I say Sivako! Rise to the challenge, and ride that banshee with wild abandon!

    Jamie, I hope you enjoy your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  Please come back and visit us anytime with any additional vacation planning questions. 

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
