Behind-The-Scenes Documentary of Rise of The Resistance Has To Be Seen To Be Believed

We’ve talked about the great work Martin Smith does here at Theme Park University for years. When it comes to Disney attractions, you can’t find more history and behind-the-scenes info than the work Martin puts into his videos. This time, the new Rise of the Resistance Ultimate Tribute is easily his best work yet.

I need to throw out this warning before we go any further. Do not read this article, nor watch this video about Rise of the Resistance unless you’ve experienced the attraction already. There are a ton of really clever tricks and design elements that have never been done before in a theme park attraction. It’s far better to experience them without knowing how they work or that they are even coming at all.

As usual, Martin’s video includes an in-depth look at the ride’s layout. In the case of Rise of the Resistance, this is a rare opportunity to wrap your head around how this incredible experience comes together.

The genius design of this attraction flows seamlessly to where you don’t know how many things are done. If you’ve been on Rise of the Resistance, you understand what I’m talking about.

The video even covers the various B-mode scenarios when the attraction has either technical difficulties or is stalled for various reasons. Rise has several of these built-in to the attraction that can automatically kick in if problems arise. Yet, to most guests, they may not even notice there is an issue at all.

You have to watch this documentary in it’s entirety if you’ve been on this attraction. At the end, there is a side-by-side comparison of each ride vehicle as it leaves the load station and it follows each of their paths.

The video (above) gives you a true understanding of just how monumental and game-changing this attraction truly is. If this is the first Martin Smith video you’ve seen, you have a lot of catching up to do. Keep in mind, he doesn’t get paid to do these videos. This is a true passion that he likes sharing.
