Calling all brave individuals! You have been recruited to assist in the prisoner transportation of a terrible monster….well, a nuisance at least!
Stitch’s Great Escape, located in Tomorrowland of the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, is an updated and more family friendly version of the ride which occupied the location before Stitch called ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter.
The new attraction uses basically the same setup as the previous one had. First, guests are loaded into a pre-show area where they are informed by the audio-animatronic “prisoner teleportation officer” that they are going to have to assist in the transportation of a LEVEL 3 (highly dangerous) criminal.
From there, guests move into the “high security area” which is a circular theater where all the chairs face the center where a tube is located. After sitting down, restraints are lowered over the guests and then the prisoner is transported into the tube.
It does not take long for the prisoner to escape, causing massive destruction (including the loss of lights in the theater). The next few minutes are spent mostly in the dark with the sounds of the prisoner and even the “smell” of him invading the guest’s senses.
Most will recognize the voice of the monster as that of Stitch, the lovable alien who starred in the 2002 Disney animated feature Lilo & Stitch. His comedic demeanor does much to lighten the otherwise desperate situation.
Many younger kids will still find this attraction scary, so keep that in mind when allowing them to enter.
