ⓘ Star Wars: Millennium Falcon – Smugglers Run

Star Wars: Millennium Falcon – Smugglers Run is a motion simulator attraction, based on the Star Wars film series created by George Lucas. Located in Star Wars: Galaxys Edge, the attraction opened on May 31, 2019 in Disneyland, and opened on August 29, 2019 in Disneys Hollywood Studios.

Park guests are seated in a 6-passenger motion simulator, themed after the Millennium Falcon. Guests go on an interactive "smuggling mission" with each guest on the attraction being assigned a different crew role. The story is set between the films The Last Jedi 2017 and The Rise of Skywalker 2019.

                                     

1. History

At the Disney D23 Expo in 2015, Disney first announced the creation of a Star Wars-themed land coming to Disneyland and Disneys Hollywood Studios. In 2017, Disney announced that this new Star Wars-themed land would be called Star Wars: Galaxys Edge and it would hold two new attractions. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers run wasnt officially announced until 2018.

Star Wars: Galaxys Edge and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run first opened at Disneyland on May 31, 2019 and the second opened at Disneys Hollywood Studios in August 29, 2019.

                                     

2. Queue

Smugglers Run is located in the center of Black Spire Outpost at the entrance to Ohnaka Transport Solutions. The queue begins outside, wrapping around behind a life-size Millennium Falcon parked outside. The queue continues through an engine room/mechanic shop which then leads to Hondo Ohnakas command center where there is an audio-animatronic Hondo explaining what the ride is about. Hondo Ohnaka is a character first seen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the animatronic is voiced by Jim Cummings. After listening to Hondo, everyone is handed a boarding pass which states their role in the ride. Each player can have one of three jobs--pilot, gunner, or engineer. Everyone is grouped into six riders two of each job and are given a color which is then called when ready to board. While riders wait for their color to be called, they get to explore the inside of the Millennium Falcon. Once their group color is called, riders walk down the corridors of the Millennium Falcon to the cockpit where the ride begins.

                                     

3. Ride Experience

Riders begin their ride experience by loading into the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The two pilots sit in the front row–the left side moves the ship left and right, and the right side moves the ship up and down. The next row holds the gunners who press buttons to shoot down enemies and obstacles in the way. The back row seats the two engineers who work to repair the ship during the flight.

Smugglers Run is very interactive ride, similar to Epcots Mission: SPACE, with every guest having a role in the mission. Lasting four and a half minutes, the ride takes the guests on a mission led by Hondo Ohnaka to steal precious cargo. How well each rider performs determines the success of the mission.
