Star Wars Ride Breaks Down Minutes After Opening

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Ride Opens At Disney's Hollywood Studios

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Florida – The Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance ride broke down just minutes after opening today as part of Disney’s $1 billion Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge expansion at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios.

“Rise of the resistance broke down after about 18 minutes,” one park guest tweeted.

According to Disney, the new attraction is “one of the most immersive, ambitious and technologically advanced attractions ever created for a Disney park.”

In one of the longest Disney attraction experiences ever, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance blends the traditional attraction design of a “queue,” “preshow” and “ride” into a seamless, holistic experience full of rich details on a cinematic scale.
