Hello friends. Store your valuables in the pouch beneath your seat, and come along on Disney’s first trackless dark ride attraction.
Trackless dark ride attractions have been improving and gaining popularity, with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway being the most recent additions to the roster.
Can you name the very first trackless dark ride attraction?
And the answer is:
Pooh’s Hunny Hunt
Pooh’s Hunny Hunt opened in Tokyo Disneyland in September 2000. It was Walt Disney Imagineering’s first trackless dark ride, and is considered by many to still be the best. Guests in the attraction ride in trackless “hunny pots” to embark on a zig zag journey through the Hundred Acre Wood. Riders search for “hunny” with Pooh, bounce with Tigger, tangle with some Heffalumps and Woozles, and eventually end up in Pooh’s bedroom for a nap. The sudden whimsical movements of the individual hunny pots would not be possible in a traditional tracked system.
