Disney Will Replicate Existing Frozen Ever After Ride in Hong Kong and Paris

While Frozen themed lands have been announced for Hong Kong Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios Paris, very little is known about everything these new lands will include. Well, according to internal documents, the Frozen Ever After ride from Epcot will be cloned and appear almost unchanged at both Hong Kong and Paris.

What makes this interesting is that Frozen Ever After was an overlay of the existing Maelstrom Ride at Epcot that opened in 1988. Despite this, Maelstrom’s track layout will be duplicated over 30 years later for both attractions.

The Paris and Hong Kong lands should include additional Frozen attractions as well, with Hong King confirmed to also have a sled roller coaster ride.

Frozen Ever After will not be replicated in the recently announced Tokyo DisneySea expansion as the Oriental Land Co. has decided to build something original and more lavish related to Frozen.

So they are going to retheme a popular ride and kill the original vision of the park?


I wish they would replace it with Maelstrom in Epcot.
