^ Okay, that's cool. I was wondering how they'd figure the logistics out, direction wise, for boarding etc. And I didn't watch the video of the queue, because...well.... I just wanted some 'not knowing' what happens, etc. :wink:

You actually don't board the Falcon while it's sitting in front. During the pre-show, Hando is talking to Chewbacca, and you see the Falcon fly in and land behind Hando. So, when you board the Falcon, it has moved to a different loading area. Which is where you board the ship.


And you get there from a hallway themed to a jetway. No detail left untouched!

If you don't want the magic ruined don't click the link below... I'm in IT so the techy stuff is catches my attention but just thought I'd share this... it's pretty cool and pretty efficient:

^ Ooooooo very tempting. :smile: But I'll hold back, until after we've visited DLR in September.

Haha, it's an interesting thing; that's how I thought it would work too. But, after riding it 3 times in a row, I know that what that Reddit thread shows you is actually incorrect!

Remember, there is only ONE Falcon with ONE cockpit. And if that layout were correct, you'd be able to see separate groups going to different areas of the ship, yet all going to the ONE cockpit? That doesn't make sense, right? One ship, with ONE cockpit. The trick they play is a good one, and it tricks you to believe that there is only ONE. I am not going to detail it, but it's a simple yet effective way to maintain the story.

Thanks for the excellent coverage! Love all the videos. Can't get in until after reservation period. Just pulled up the app, Smugglers Run has 30 min line. Looks like reservation system worked really well for that ride.

By the way, and this is just me, for my first ride on this attraction, I would like to be at the back, and On Automatic, so I can just enjoy the ride, and see how the other five are freeking out in front of me, LOL! That said, I would honestly love to ride it with everything On Automatic, just to see and feel how it runs itself, without us banging on buttons, etc. :wink:

p.s. I will play the part of the character who doubts his own engineering abilities,
and doesn't quite trust this crew (and their abilities) for this "mission." <smiles>

When you board, you are instructed to enable your console by hitting buttons. I would guess that if you simply don't enable your console, then you are not required to participate in managing the ship.

I will say that my favorite seat if the right pilot seat. Because that seat gets to engage the Hyperdrive!
