KINECT DISNEYLAND ADVENTURES

Disney/Microsoft
Xbox 360/Kinect

Disneyland – it’s the happiest place on Earth! Well, if you’re rich and dig queuing...

Not dollaricious? Well, you likely don’t have a Kinect and Xbox 360, so you wouldn’t be reading this anyway. Erm, we’ll just assume that you have the kit.

KDA isn’t a game in the traditional sense, it’s more an experience. Yep, a hyper-wanky sentence, but when this is essentially a virtual theme park visit then Mr Roget won’t let us get away with much else. Pick whether you’re a boy or a girl, select a face, hair and clobber, then shadow a freaky talking origami ticket all over Disneyland. It’s just like being there – kinda - but without queuing, sweating, rude arseholes and significant purse-drainage. Admittedly you also don’t get the thrill of actually being on rides, or the ability to hug Donald Duck for real. Still, virtuosity is an ace alternative if jetting to sunny California (or Florida, Paris, Hongkers etc) isn’t budgetarially viable.

So, talk to characters dotted throughout the Magic Kingdom, hug them, say hello, wave goodbye, collect autographs (and other paraphernalia), take happy snaps and more. Blag virtual coinage for virtual souvenirs, cast spells and invoke ‘FASTPASS’ to shoom directly to fun stuff... like the minigame-incorporating rides – Big Thunder Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain and others. Can you guess our fave?

The Kinect functionality can be basticholent to click with, but once sussed things blossom. Anyway, most kids’ll pick it up infinitely quicker than adults. Smartybritcheses.

Plop any munchkin – or agoraphobic - in front of KDA and watch their eyes pop. At US$154 for a one day, one kid, one adult pass to the real Disneyland – and that’s just getting in, without food, beverages, travel, accommodation - ultimately you’d get a 360, Kinect and this for less. Likely for every room of your home, even the small world- uh, one. Gawrsh!

take me back to the start...
