Can you imagine being stuck on that thing if you start to feel queasy within the first few minutes? I'm assuming it's one of those motion simulator type rides.

Yikes

As you've probably heard by now, Disneyland is soon opening Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which is pretty much what it sounds like: Star Wars comes to Disneyland. Its big attraction is going to be called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, and the clip above offers an overview of what to expect.

Sure, it's no surprise that there will be rides, but it's pretty shocking that it's now being reported that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance might last 28 minutes. That's the length of most TV shows. (It also makes us wonder what the lines are going to be like.)

Actually, I think the 28 minute Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a "dark ride", it might be the longest dark ride in the world? So they are constantly going to have people getting on and proceeding through the ride, think Haunted Mansion.

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, that is the interactive motion simulator one that will put guests in the cockpit of the fastest hunk-of-junk in the galaxy. I would assume that one is going to be a lot quicker than 28 minutes!

If you think Disney hasn't thought about that possibility, then you don't really know Disney. They're nothing if not thorough and detail oriented.

Oh? You should read about the history of Mission: Space. It took Disney around three years to offer up a "less intense" alternative.

And you don't think they haven't learned lessons from 15 years ago?

They already had around 20 years to learn that lesson (more if you count experience from other parks) before Mission: Space opened. Disney imagineers aren't perfect. They aren't always going to get it right, no matter how much experience they have with past rides.

The lines to wait for this ride would be insane. You already have 90 minute times for rides like Splash Mountain that are very short.

I'm not going to get in a debate with you. But I don't believe for one second that the Imagineers are so imperfect that they aren't going to think that people on a 28 minute ride might need at some point to get off the ride for any number of reasons.

Considering that most TV shows today are actually around 18 to 20 minutes when you take into account the increasingly long commercial breaks...

For comparison: Ellen's Energy Adventure (née Universe of Energy) was 45 minutes long but held 500 people per show. Carousel of Progress is 21 minutes, It's a Small World and Spaceship Earth are 15 minutes, and Haunted Mansion is only 7 to 8 minutes. So 28 minutes would be long but not the longest they've ever done.
