Two Disney World Attractions Win Industry Awards

Two new attractions at Disney World won Thea Awards from the Themed Entertainment Association.  The Thea Award recognizes achievement, talent, and personal excellence in the themed entertainment industry.

Announced earlier today, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway rides – both of which are new at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – won the industry recognition.

The Themed Entertainment Association recognized Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance for its technological advances and details. The awards committee commented, “The entire attraction, from front to back, is one massive magic trick that leaves riders gobsmacked.”

Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway won the award and the association noted that the coordination of animatronics, sets, projection mapping, peppy theme song, and trackless course creates an eye-popping experience.

Glad to see Rise of the Resistance and Runaway Railway earning awards?
