The story behind this attraction takes place before the events in the movie Lilo & Stitch. Guests enter the Galactic Federation Prisoner Teleport Center, automatically becoming new recruits in a volunteer guard program. After an explanation and demonstration, we're taken to a high-security chamber to guard a new arrival: Experiment 626 (aka Stitch). Naturally, the security systems aren't enough to keep the creature contained, and chaos ensues.
Total darkness, biurnal speakers and in-seat water and air effects play with your senses as it seems that Stitch is climbing all around you. Keep in mind that this isn't the happy, nice Stitch from the end of Lilo & Stitch. This is the mean, nasty Stitch from the beginning. With these somewhat intense special effects, this attraction leaves many little ones crying in terror, which is why it's consistently the lowest-rated attraction in the world on ThemeParkInsider.com. But among those who appreciate irreverent mayhem, Stitch has its fans.
kids crying everywhere. I LOVE stitch, its my disney favorite character and disney does this kind of ride for it. -1/10
But i have to disagree with the description...Stitch is, was and will always be awesome and he was never nasty. With all respect....
It's awful. No matter how short the line is, do not ride this. The pre-show is cute, and the Stitch animatronic is cool, but the actual "ride" is uncomfortable and underwhelming. You get strapped down by some lowering harnesses that are supposed to stop at your shoulders, but rarely do, so when the ride pushes them down as if Stitch is jumping on them, it's very painful. Not only that, but at one point a rancid chili dog odor is sprayed directly in your face, it's disgusting. Disney rides should not be painful and unpleasant, and Stitch's Great Escape fails on every single level. The ride that was here before this one was at least scary. Why Disney has not had the decency to rip out this horrible excuse for an attraction I cannot fathom. Do yourself a favor and just don't ride.
How could you hate this?! It's got, um, well, it's got, yeah, there's really nothing going for it. go to WDW every year, and consistently walk right by it. I was never big enough to ride ALIEN ENCOUNTER, but I still know how bad this one is. Take my advice, and just keep walking.
It's okay. The short lines should tell you that it's a miss 6/10
Wall-E ride ??
When will Disney get it right... ALIEN ENCOUNTER WAS RIGHT
The first two scenes were alright, but I spent most of the show looking at Stitch's behind. Also, be warned, this gets dark. Little children were crying when the lights were out.
This attraction is an example of audience identity crisis. Is it for adults or for children? The answer is neither. In an effort to update the attraction, Disney lost both audiences and now the experience is a wasted effort. 1/10.
