Nothing can stop us now! (Except maybe a ride break down).

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway made its debut at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World a few months ago. It features one-of-a-kind technology allowing Guests and riders to be fully immersed in the attraction.

However, with one-of-a-kind technology comes malfunctions and technical difficulties. One rider took to Facebook to share his recent experience on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway on a live video. You can see the ride stopped halfway through the experience and the projections were not working.

It wasn’t long before a Cast Member came over to the ride vehicles and escorted Guests off of the ride.

Brian Stevens then sent us this photo showing him walking off of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

More on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is the latest dark ride theme park attraction located inside the Chinese Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This new attraction replaced the extinct Disney attraction, The Great Movie Ride, which was also located within the Chinese Theater.

This is the first-ever Disney theme park attraction that is based around Mickey Mouse himself! In case you haven’t yet had the chance to ride, guests will enter the Chinese Theater, which will serve as “the magic portal”, they will instantly be fully emerged into Mickey’s Toontown.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is a trackless theme park ride that features effects and sounds like no other Disney attraction. As you can imagine, the technology is extremely important in order for the ride to run correctly and this isn’t the first time the attraction had technical difficulties. We recently reported that one YouTuber posted a video of them riding Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway for the first time — with no effects, animations, or sound! Check it out here.

The official description reads:

The darling duo are taking a leisurely drive to a picnic in their sporty roadster—with Engineer Goofy’s train following merrily along. Plot twist—you get to go, too! Climb aboard a runaway railway and embark on a whirlwind ride through a world where the rules of physics don’t apply. Prepare for unexpected twists, slapstick gags and mind-boggling transformations at every turn, as Mickey and Minnie try to save the day.

There’s no telling where this train is heading! This is an adventure for Mickey and Minnie fans of all ages.

Based on the recent award-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is a brand-new attraction unique to Walt Disney World Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios—and the first ride at any Disney park that stars Mickey Mouse and friends.
