Description And Comments

This theater in Asia has held a bird-themed show for well over a decade. The latest, UP! A Great Bird Adventure, takes over from Flights of Wonder. No matter the title, the show's focus is on the birds’ natural talents and characteristics. Don’t expect to see parrots riding bicycles—the birds’ natural behaviors far surpass any tricks learned from humans.

UP! features a number of bird species, with plenty more flying overhead while the show plays. Unfortunately, the new show’s script is not as good as Flights of Wonder. The show’s new introduction takes far too long and delays the birds’ performances. The new character additions - Doug and Russel from UP! - were made to get more kids to see the show, but they’re completely irrelevant to what happens on stage. Their dialog adds nothing and subtracts time that could be used to show more birds.

A Brattleboro, Vermont, reader found the birds especially compelling, writing:

The birds are thrilling, and we especially appreciated the fact that their antics were not the results of training against the grain but actual survival techniques the birds use in the wild.

Touring Tips

UP! plays at the stadium near the Asia Bridge on the walkway into Asia. Though the stadium is covered, it’s not air-conditioned; thus, early-morning and late-afternoon performances are more comfortable. To play it safe, get to the stadium about 10–15 minutes before showtime.

UP! is a FASTPASS-enabled attraction, but FASTPASS is rarely needed.
