Guests Accidentally Sent Backwards on EPCOT Attraction

In a very strange turn of events at EPCOT today, it would appear that some Guests got an entirely new perspective on Living with the Land. The attraction started taking Guests backward through the greenhouses of the popular EPCOT attraction.

Check out this video that one Guest captured below:

While it would have been awesome to see this attraction differently, what likely happened here was the attraction getting E-stopped. During this process, the water jets that propel the interest forwards are shut off entirely, which would explain why the ride starts to move backward.

Fan-Favorite EPCOT Ride Remains Closed For Fourth Day In a Row

Here is another fan who experienced the attraction moving backward:

Still, it’s pretty cool seeing it happen, and we would consider it pretty lucky that riders got to experience the attraction this way. It is one of the best attractions at EPCOT, and it’s always fun to see something different happen, even if it isn’t supposed to.

If you’d like to see more of the attraction, you can also try out the Behind the Seeds walking tour, something we took part in last year and would recommend!

Last year Living with the Land saw a bit of a makeover, and we love that this classic EPCOT attraction still has so many fans after all these years. Despite the recent changes to construction progress with the Spaceship Earth refurbishment and Mary Poppins attraction being delayed, there are still plenty of reasons to visit EPCOT during the construction work currently.
