PHOTOS, VIDEO: Rise of the Resistance Now Only Loading One Out of Two Transports as Technical Issues Persist at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance has quickly gone from the most ambitious ride at Walt Disney World to the most unreliable, as between issues with guests securing Boarding Groups and technical malfunctions plaguing the attraction’s many effects, Rise has gained some notoriety for how often it goes down or fails to function as it should.
Our reporters from WDWNT.jp were on hand today to witness a new loading procedure where only one Prisoner Transport was loaded upon them being “rescued” from the interrogation cell by the Resistance. Normally, there would be two Prisoner Transports, or ride vehicles, at the ready here.
In B-Mode, guests do not get to see the Kylo Ren audio-animatronic, but instead view a screen depicting a TIE Fighter attack scene taking place through the windows. Kylo then makes an appearance on the screen aboard his own TIE variant, threatening riders of their imminent demise… before ultimately getting thwarted in a similar fashion.
We’ll continue chronicling the state of the attraction as these issues persist, until it receives the proper maintenance or refurbishment required to get it back into full swing. Rise of the Resistance will celebrate its one-year anniversary this December, however the attraction spent months of “unplanned downtime” due to the COVID-19 theme park shutdown.
