Armageddon - Les Effets Speciaux is a special effects simulation show in the Backlot area of Walt Disney Studios Park. It opened on March 16, 2002, and takes place on soundstages 7A and 7B. The attraction is based off the 1998 film Armageddon. The show is approximately 22 minutes long and can hold 170 people at once. In English, the ride's name translates into Armageddon: The Special Effects.

Ride history

Orginally, the ride was planned to be a Tomorrowland show at Disneyland, but plans were scrapped due to planning for Atlantis Expedition, which was also scrapped. The ride was then decided to be brought to Walt Disney Studios Park. It opened on soundstages 7A and 7B of the Backlot.

Ride synopsis

Riders proceed onto the main deck of the station. The show starts with a director's yell of, "Action!" Several scenes start to undergo. Windows open either on Space or on Earth, letting guests witness a meteorite rain. Several dysfunctions happens as the meteorites pound the guests, such as flickering lights, bursting gas into the cabin, ceiling collapsing, and rocks crossing the room. The pressure buildup causes a wall to pull out at one point, letting air escape until a door shuts. Finally, as guests encounter the final meteor, the lights blacken out, and a powerful explosion occurs. The show ends with the director's yell of "Cut!"
