Garet wrote:I re-watched your video. On both paths, but the corridor of them is more obvious on the second path (around 4:50), you see a bunch of empty ride vehicles waiting in a corridor and some circle with you and they disappear off down a corridor as the droid(?) says 'tell them it's a prison transfer.' Where those cars empty because of media day and they're usually also carrying people or are they always empty?

I'm kind of hoping it's the latter because it looks like they are going into the area you started your ride so are they cars returning from the unload area to the loading area? If it is I love the fact they found a way to incorporate something as mundane as cars returning to the station into an actual story element.


It's what you said in the second paragraph. Those are unloaded vehicles returning to one of the loading bays. It looks like there's four loading bay garage doors plus an extra garage door in that first room that allows the empty vehicles in from the unload area.

An EXIT question. Nobody seems to be showing (from what I have seen) what happens when you exit the trackless vehicles, outside. Is it just onto an outdoor pathway, eventually to the main thoroughfare.....or something different?

Thanks in advance. :mickey: Colour me curious.

A Grade A+, Elissa, on your awesome Rise of the Resistance Report!  So much detail & effort must have gone into putting it together.  (I know... these trips & rides are all 'fun and games' - until someone has to tackle the REPORT!  :lol: But success! I FINALLY have an inkling of how this attraction works - and, believe me, I hadn't a clue till I saw the video & followed along with your captions.  Twice!  (Well, maybe 3 times... You weren't kidding when you said, "Make sure you watch our video over and over!"  That is ONE complicated trek.)  What my lame brain finally understood is that RISE is part walk-thru & part 'car ride.'  Seeing people swiveling 'round n 'round, I assumed the ENTIRE ride was spent sitting in moving vehicles.  NOW, the awesomeness of RISE makes perfect sense - I 'get' all the hoopla.  What an adventure (even to those of us 'rusty' re Star Wars). The dips, the curves, the swerves, the simulator -- I wanna ride this sucker!!!!  Thanks for your efforts, Elissa.  Another Blue Ribbon for Disney imagination.  (PS  I think I need a 'furry' or figurine of that little "smug guy" - & his buddy.  Will put em next to my Furby.) ;)

^Thanks! I really appreciate the kind words from you and everyone else. It makes the work worth it and makes me want to write more fun trip reports!

^^Bill, you do the little drop into a simulator where you end up landing back on Batuu. You then exit the drop shaft into the outside (still trackless) area and then into the unload bay.

And I think it's brilliant what Disney did there,
integrating the unloaded/empty vehicles into the attraction story line, itself. :mickey:

Another thing. It's supposed to be a "serious adventure", but I see so many smiling faces of the "captives," throughout the attraction (on practically all videos of it), it seems funny to me, that nobody is actually looking scared in this attraction. I think Snow White still holds that record for some kids. It's crazy. But it's fun all the same. "Laughing out loud at your own peril." :smile:

^^There's mozzarella at Oga's?!?!

^I think for me at least it's one of those awkward theming things. Look, I get that this is a very immersive experience and the cast members do an AMAZING job staying in character, but I also know you don't really work for the First Order. I saw you grocery shopping at Publix yesterday! So it's just kind of funny to me and others.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Awesome review! I’ve never seen any of the Star Wars movies (or Indiana Jones....I know), but this ride looks absolutely fantastic! Question on the ‘drop’ part, how subtle would you say it is? I love how people scream in all of the videos I’ve seen, but I imagine that’s more from the surprise aspect of it. Do you lift out of your seat at all?

^Just barely. Think of it as one of the little pre drops on Tower of Terror.
