Sora uses the Mad Tea Cups Attraction.

Attractions (アトラクションフロー Atorakushon Furō?, lit. "Attraction Flow") is a command system in Kingdom Hearts III. It allows Sora to perform elaborate attacks inspired by the various rides of the Disney theme parks.

Development[edit]

Attractions first appeared in a trailer for Kingdom Hearts III at D23 Expo Japan 2013. Sora is shown summoning a Pirate Ship ride to attack a group of Heartless, and later Sora, Donald, and Goofy ride the Big Magic Mountain train in battle against the Rock Titan.[1]

The Kingdom Hearts III trailer at E3 2015 again shows Sora summoning the Big Magic Mountain and Pirate Ship rides in battle, as well as a new teacup-based ride.[2] In an interview at E3, Tetsuya Nomura described that at one point in development, the tea cup ride had the camera showing Sora's point of view, but the camera motion gave some of the testers motion sickness.[3]

In an interview in the June 25, 2015 issue of Dengeki Playstation, Nomura explained that Sora will be able to trigger Attraction attacks under certain conditions in battle. He attributed the inspiration for Attractions to Flowmotion from Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, but described the former as a more tactical system.[citation needed]

In June 2018, the E3 2018 Square Enix Showcase Trailer displayed two new Attractions: Splash Run, and Magic Carousel.
