If you head to Walt Disney World Resort for a magical vacation, there are a number of memorable rides and attractions that are on your must-ride list. For Guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios, one of those rides is Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Rise of the Resistance is one of Disney’s most technologically advanced rides that takes Guests on a high-stakes adventure as they try to escape a Star Destroyer after being captured by Kylo Ren and his First Order Stormtroopers.

The Disney Park trackless ride is full of thrills and action, and one of the most action-packed scenes is when Kylo Ren stops the escape droid vehicle Guests are riding in. He tries to move the vehicle towards him, telling Guests that they will tell them where the rebel base is located. Suddenly, a blast hits the Star Destroyer. Kylo Ren is shocked and yells as a wall falls over him and the escape continues.

Recently, Guests riding Rise of the Resistance arrived at this big moment, but it didn’t happen exactly as they expected. As the escape droid vehicle arrived at Kylo Ren’s location, Kylo Ren wasn’t exactly in his menacing stance. Instead, the impressive animatronic was spinning in circles and his cape was flying around him. Video of the moment was shared on TikTok by Robert Tolppi.

Here’s more information on one of the newest rides at Disney’s Hollywood Studios:

The Resistance needs your help! Hidden in the forest outside Black Spire Outpost, the Resistance is gathering recruits for a secret mission.

With the First Order desperate to extinguish the spark of the Resistance, the mission is bound to have unexpected twists and turns. When your transport is captured by an imposing First Order Star Destroyer filled with legions of stormtroopers—and even Kylo Ren!—you’re going to need all the help you can get. Fortunately, a covert team of Resistance fighters—including Rey and BB-8—is at the ready to give you a fighting chance to escape… and a chance for the Resistance to rise.

Prepare for a thrilling, first-of-its-kind adventure!

Because it is so technologically advanced, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance can experience frequent breakdowns, which take a while to fix. While most of the malfunctions are meant with groans of exasperation, this malfunction was definitely met with more laughs.
