What’s is the Rise of the Resistance Ride?

‘Rise of the Resistance’ isn’t just a ride, it’s an adventure. You’ll find yourself in the middle of a Star Wars story, helping Rey and the Resistance on a mission.

The Rise of the Resistance Drop

Alright, let’s talk about the drop. It’s a quick one – just about a second – and it happens near the end of the ride. You’ll drop from a height of around 20 feet, which might sound scary, but it’s been compared to the drops on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

So, it’s definitely something most kids (and adults!) can handle.

Is Rise of the Resistance Kid-Friendly?

Rise of the Resistance is a must-do for any Star Wars fan, and while it does have a drop, it’s not too intense. Remember, every kid is different, so use your best judgement and most importantly, have fun.
