After poor attendance, Disney had made the decision to permanently close down its NBA Experience attraction in Florida.
The attraction opened to great fanfare in August of 2019. Still, after finding few fans interested in visiting and then a 2020 shut down thanks to the coronavirus, Disney announced on Monday that it had pulled the plug on the NBA Experience, Inside the Magic reported.
Disney claimed that the attraction would be a “slam dunk of fun for fans of all ages,” but with an admission fee of more than $35 a person, it became more like a hard pass than a slam dunk.
One Twitter user wrote “I feel like the only people that got to experience the NBA Experience were the bloggers and vloggers that got invited for free when it first opened.”
