For the first time in forever...we just got off of the new 'Frozen Ever After' attraction in the Norway pavilion in Epcot. This attraction is truly incredible, the ride length is nearly identical to that of the former 'Maelstrom', but if this is the future of Dark Ride Technology, then Walt Disney Imagineering are in a completely rarified space. Watch the first Ride POV of 'Frozen Ever After':
Here's the official description from Disney:
"The adventure begins on the docks of Arendelle, as seen in the classic animated film. After finding a seat aboard your boat, feel an Olaf-inspired smile frost across your face when the lapping waters take you right into the frozen willow forest.
Soon, you’ll be rubbing shoulders with some “boulders”—a.k.a. Kristoff’s family from Troll Valley—before bracing for the cold. High up in the icy blue world of the North Mountain, Queen Elsa’s enchanting ice palace awaits! Behold the wonder… and keep an eye out for a few more Frozen friends too.
Finally, hang on tight as you glide back down into the Bay of Arendelle and conclude this “Summer Snow Day” celebration in style—complete with many of your favorite Frozen tunes!"
Frozen Ever After shows that Imagineering have reached near perfection of this new form of audio-animatronic technology, that was first introduced with Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, back in 2014. Can't wait to see what we see it utilised in next.
