At over three hours, it’s Disney’s longest ride!
WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — Normally, Disney publicizes new attractions well in advance of their unveiling. Disney fan sites also try to find out about new rides before any official announcement, and of course Uncle Walt’s Insider usually scoops them all. But this one took everyone by surprise!
On Saturday, the Walt Disney World Resort and Spa debuted a brand new thrill ride without any fanfare or announcement at all: SUSPENDED: a Skyliner Adventure®.
So many firsts
The new ride breaks new territory for the resort. Not only is SUSPENDED the first ride to debut without any Disney publicity, but it is also:
- The first attraction located outside the five parks.
- The first attraction lasting over three hours.
- The first attraction where guests did not realize they would be riding it.
- The first attraction to feature an unload system (pictured) that involves fire trucks. (Note: guests who exited using this method report that they were still ushered through a gift shop.)
In unrelated news, Walt Disney World reports that when the Skyliner reopens, every car will be equipped with a Port-a-Potty.
