One of Disneyland's original Fantasyland dark rides will be getting a big tech upgrade in the new year.
Disneyland confirmed today that it will be substantially refurbishing Snow White's Scary Adventures, refreshing and adding scenes to the classic attraction.
"Imagineers are implementing state-of-the-art audio and visual technology throughout the attraction, including new music, LED black lighting, laser projections and a new animation system. The exterior of the attraction will be completely refreshed with new, fairy tale-inspired details to complement the nearby charming Sleeping Beauty Castle," Disneyland said in a press release.
Snow White and Her Adventures opened with the park in 1955, adding the "Scary" to its title during its 1983 "New Fantasyland" redesign, which was the last time the ride got a major overhaul. Originally, Disney's original princess did not appear in her eponymous ride, as you were supposed to be experiencing the adventures from her point of view.
That didn't explain why you saw the Wicked Witch meeting her demise at the end of the ride, though, because - as I've insisted many time before - from Snow White's POV, the magic/poison apple worked. She takes a bite and the next thing she knows, the Prince is kissing her and whisking her away to Happily Ever After.
Disney is promising more of that Happily Ever After in the new version of the ride, which should benefit from more modern animation technology. The current version will close after January 6, 2020. No reopening date has been announced yet.Tweet
