PHOTOS, VIDEO: We Rode Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Galaxy’s Edge and It Broke Down

“Attention. There has been a temporary disruption to transport power. Please stay seated. Operations will resume shortly.”

If you’ve been following the saga of the official grand opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance to the general public this morning, then you’re probably aware of the parking delays, boarding group activation, and of course, the lucky first ride evac. That’s right, we were among the very first guests to experience the state-of-the-art attraction when it opened this morning, but the ride broke down near the end, and we were evacuated off of the attraction. Others were not as lucky and had to be evacuated from even earlier segments of the attraction, like the pre-show. Take a look at our photo tour of the queue and some of the pre-show, and watch as we walk out of the ride unscathed after a long evacuation in the video below:

If you’re wondering what happens if the ride breaks down on you during your adventure, the Resistance has you covered with paper FastPasses to re-enter the ride:
