There's a newly released video out, I am assuming by Disney, of some of the Runaway Railway attraction! It shows a few scenes from the ride (not all of them of course), and I won't describe them to stay spoiler-free. :wink: It looks pretty cool, there's a lot of projection mapping, film pieces, along with some great set pieces and animatronics, etc. The theme song is fun, too.

If this is available to see here, could somebody else link it here, or post the video? I can't figure these things out, without screwing it up somewhere.

^ I see it on Youtube, but since from a 3rd party site (even tho it credits the footage to Disney), probably not a good idea to post it here.

let Robb/TPR post official footage that Disney sends to them (or allows them to shoot). . it's safer.

but yes, it *DOES* look pretty amazing, even just from the B-roll footage online.

^ And it's only a few days until everybody will know about what's inside, lol. ;)

NOTE: It looks like still shots and videos are popping up everywhere now, especially on Disney Fan Sites.

And I am Team Mickey (vs.Team Star Wars), all the way! :mickey:

The ride is awesome! Really impressive and super cute. So glad to have not one but now TWO trackless Dark Rides at the same park!!! It's crazy!

I hadn't been following this attraction too closely and assumed they were reusing the old Great Movie Ride system, so this was a nice surprise to see another trackless ride system.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

I suspect it will get down to Avatar Flight of Passage levels (consistently 2-3 hours) in the coming weeks.

For anyone who goes in the next few weeks, how is the cell reception in the indoor part of the queue for Mickey and Minne's Runaway Railway? I'm seeing some people post they opened the queue before park opening and I'd hate to miss a Rise boarding group if that queue is a dead zone.

Checked out the on-ride videos posted on FB. WOW. This looks absolutely stunning! The immersion into the cartoon world is really breathtaking. Can't wait to check it out (hopefully end of this year)!

The wait time is down to 95 minutes which seems entirely reasonable. Is this thing just a total capacity whore?
