Disney’s newest attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, has been a hit since it opened just a couple of weeks before the Disney World theme parks were forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the theme parks reopened, Runaway Railway has demanded some of the longest lines and waits at Disney’s Hollywood Studios as locals and tourists alike want to take a spin around Runnamuck Park with conductor Goofy.
The new attraction uses what Imagineers call 2½-D technology that combines projection scenes onto flat cutouts to bring the cartoon world to life. The ride also uses a trackless ride vehicle that travels across the large show scenes as you whirl through the attraction. Of course, the technology functions well during most scenarios, but as you’ll see below, there can be some times where there can be some unexpected results. In the video below, none of the effects or background music for the scenes play throughout the entire attraction. It looks like scenes didn’t sense the ride vehicles’ presence, and never even turned on. Take a look!
And for the palate cleanser of what the attraction is actually supposed to look like, check out our video below!
