The safety and warning sign for Rise of the Resistance has been installed near the ride’s entrance at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The sign offers Disney’s official description about what guests will experience in the attraction, specifically mentioning rapid motion, sharp turns and a swift drop.
Take a look at the safety sign seen at Disney’s Hollywood Studios:
The height requirement for Rise of the Resistance is expected to be 40 inches. That height requirement matches the ones for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain.
Some guests may be taken by surprise by the “swift drop” mentioned on the sign. The drop in question will occur when guests escape from the Star Destroyer in their escape pod and return to the planet of Batuu. This isn’t your Tower of Terror type of drop, so don’t bail on this one if you’re scared of that kind of ride element. This will be more of a controlled descent more in line with the drops felt during Flight of Passage.
Video footage from inside Rise of the Resistance (which you can watch here) shows off the incredible immersion of the ride as well as some of the rapid movement and sharp turns. As fun as the ride footage is, we believe this will be an attraction you have to experience in person to fully appreciate.
Rise of the Resistance will open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on December 5 and is expected to become the headliner at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and one of the must-do attractions at Walt Disney World.
