PHOTOS: Trackless Ride Vehicle Revealed for Star Wars Land’s “Battle Escape” Attraction

Revealed tonight at the D23 Expo 2017, we received our first look at the 8-person trackless ride vehicle for Star Wars Land’s massive E-Ticket attraction known simply to most as Battle Escape.

The vehicle is referred to as a First Order Fleet Transport and features an astromech droid attached to the front of it. While we don’t know exactly why we will be riding in this vehicle, we hopefully will be getting more information before the end of the D23 Expo this weekend.

For a look at the Star Wars Land model revealed tonight, check out our video.

Looks like similar vehicles to Spiderman/Transformers, wonder if the ride itself will be similar.

A trackless EMV would be a terrifying concept. I imagine this will be an all ages ride since the current land development pattern is “teen to adult ride” and “everyone ride”. Since I figure the Falcon Simulator will be the former, I imagine this will have to be the everyone ride.

Another clickbait article from Cake Crabless, how are people supposed to fit in those vehicles??? what is it a ride for ants? Those vehicles would have to be at least 3 times that size for people to fit in.

This must be another bright idea from those Disney interns. When will they learn that we can’t all shrink down to miniture size just so they can move more people through the line faster. I for one will not stand for this and will angrily mutter to myself as I continue to visit the parks and give them my money.

The Falcon ride will be much more like Star Tours then this. This is ride vehicle that will move around in a space with physical sets as well as screens. Sort of like Spiderman at Universal.

This will be absolutely nothing like Star Tours.

Reminds me of the Universe of Energy ride vehicles, only smaller.

And when exactly did Luigi’s open? 2016.

More accurately, Epcot and Studios have had these for years. 35 to be exact, in the case of Epcot, and 28 in the case of Studios.

[…] Another Disney tech that could help bring the Star Wars experience to life involves “trackless” ride vehicles that can maneuver independently of one another unlike the typical roller coasters or rides on rails featured at most theme parks that follow a fixed path through a ride space. An example of this could be an 8-person trackless vehicle—dubbed the “First Order Fleet Transport” in Star Wars parlance—that was on display at D23 Expo 2017 and showcased in photos taken by WDW News Today.
