10 Closed Walt Disney World Attractions That We Miss

4) Maelstrom, EPCOT (1988-2014) The Maelstrom attraction was housed inside the Norway pavilion on the World Showcase at EPCOT from the time of its maiden voyage in 1988 until its farewell voyage in 2014. It was a dark ride upon a Viking vessel that gave Guests a look inside Norwegian mythology. It also took Guests on a journey through an enchanted swamp, after which the vessel was “pushed” backward down a 28-foot high waterfall by an angry troll. At the bottom of the waterfall, Guests found themselves on the North Sea, dangerously close to an oil rig. The ride ended at a Norwegian harbor. In place of the Maelstrom, another dark ride aboard a vessel was created. The new Frozen Ever After attraction debuted in its place in June 2016, and to this day, it remains a feat to secure a FastPass+ time for this very popular new attraction!
