Next year, imagineers of the theme park titan plan to gut the 27-year-old Maelstrom ride at the Norway pavilion in Epcot to replace it with a new ride called Frozen Ever After!
This new attraction will feature your favorite residents of Arendelle as they celebrate their winter festival!
Riders can expect to walk by Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post in line before boarding logs to see Olaf and Sven setting up for the festival, then visiting Grandpappy Troll in Troll Valley!
The ride will then show Anna and Kristof ice skating with Olaf and Sven, then the big magical moment of Elsa singing Let It Go on a balcony in her ice castle — complete with simulated snow crystals that soar around the room!
The next scene will feature Elsa’s giant snowman Marshmallow and his Snowgie friends from the Frozen Fever short. The ride will conclude by the characters waving as fireworks go off!
Frozen Ever After doesn’t feature any new songs, but some new lyrics to existing melodies were written for the attraction by movie composers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson Lopez!
The company is counting on Frozen Ever After to boost the popularity of Epcot. If the ride is anywhere near as popular as the movie, we think they’ll be in for a sure spike in attendance!
