Disney is great at keeping things quiet but we have a first detailed look at the ride layout for Rise of the Resistance where we can see how the attraction plays out.
This is an interactive dark ride that combines both live-action and animatronics in order to bring guests into one of their most thrilling stories yet. The story will take place on a rebel base where guests are recruited to join the fight against the evil empire.
@cgnsnewsreviews over on Instagram specializes in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and were the first to release this information. The plans aren’t from Disney but hand-drawn from the experience of the ride’s layout.
The attraction will start out with a ride on a transport shuttle that is captured by the empire. From there, guests will be taken into an interrogation room where they will have to use their wits and skills to escape. There are plenty of surprises along the way.
Let’s get into the Rise of the Resistance Ride Layout
In Star Wars: Rise Of The Resistance, players are placed in an immersive battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
First, you will enter the Resistance base on Batuu, a secret hideaway nestled among ancient ruins. The long and elaborate ride queue awaits you outside on ground level.
As you make your way through the queue you are also making your way into this hidden world. Here debriefings await after your mission with information that may be helpful if followed correctly!
Then you will enter a Resistance I-TS Shuttle and get sent into space, the ride is amazing but things will be taking a turn shortly!
The ride has two floors. You both begin and end on floor one.
I consider the queue the first part of the ride because one of the greatest things about ROR is that you can’t tell when exactly the ride starts.
Part 2 is that Resistance I-TS Shuttle ride to space. Make sure to get a good view because the shuttle is TAKEN by a tractor beam. Next thing you know, you are stuck on board a First Order Star Destroyer.
One of the best visual parts of the show happens at this point so I will mention it again, get a good view!
Part 3 you are now a prisoner. You will be sent to your cell block. But The Resistance finds a way to get you out! You will now move to the loading area of the ROR ride. Things are about to get serious.
Get ready to face off vs. the First Order and worse of all, Kyloe Ren as we get into part 4. It’s fun, fast, and everything you would want in a Star Ways showdown.
As we know, Disney is the best when it comes to riding technology so you will not be disappointed when it comes time to be face to face with Kylo Ren.
Is the ride done yet?
Even the smallest of fans know what AT-AT Walkers are. And the big fans will be anticipating the opportunity to see them full-sized and up close and personal. Part 5 captures this amazing battle with top-of-the-line special effects.
It’s hard to put part 5 in words as you move through the ride and experience the fight. But let’s head up to the second floor as we get to part 6.
As you meet up with the other crew, you start moving in parallel with the other ride vehicle. I was tense with anticipation for what was going to come next here.
The battle continues through the gun room (7) until you finally get to the escape pods (8). It’s time to go! Let’s head down to the first floor and continue this ride!
In room 9 you land and make your way back to Batuu in room 10.
There is so much more to this ride as you go through it, to think I didn’t even mention the briefing. But, I will save some of it for your first experience.
