New details for the Millennium Falcon ride at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

New details have been revealed regarding the Millennium Falcon attraction coming to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The attraction will reportedly feature different roles for guests and a few different missions, creating unique experiences for guests even with repeated visits.

The folks over at Making Star Wars compiled all of the recent news regarding the Millennium Falcon attraction, most of which came from the home release of SOLO: A Star Wars Story, highlighting some particularly fun details.

Warning – If you want to experience the attraction completely fresh, don’t read any further. Some details below may slightly spoil the experience.

With that, here’s what’s being reported.

Six Riders

Each Falcon ride will consist of six total riders. Two will drive the ship (one controlling movement and one controlling speed), two will be gunners for the ship and two will be engineers who will “fix” the damage sustained by the Falcon.

It’s unclear just how involved riders will be, but the Mission: Space attraction in Epcot may be a basic comparison.

Ride Scenarios

Hondo Ohnaka, owner of Hondo Ohnaka’s Transport Solutions, will send riders off on the various missions from the Star Wars: Galaxy Edge planet of Batuu.

Making Star Wars summarizes the missions as follows:

Mission #1: Hondo involves you in a race on Corellia that he’s sure you can’t lose with the Millennium Falcon.

Mission #2: Hondo sends you to the First Order Shipyard on Corellia, possibly on a mission for the Resistance.

Mission #3: Your crew will have to steal cargo that’s guarded by a giant monster.

Overall Experience

It’s difficult to explain what the Millennium Falcon ride will be like without actually riding it, but we can assume it will be like a crazy hybrid of Star Tours and Mission: Space cranked up to 11.

Disney has also stated that guests’ actions on the ride will influence other areas of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. A poor performance and a destroyed ship may lead to a bounty being placed on your head, though it’s not really clear what that means at this time.
