|Popular boat ride with a small
drop, located within the Norway pavillion of EPCOT's World
Maelstrom is a 10 minute longboat journey through the
scenery and history of Scandinavian Norway in a replica viking
Along with the scenery the boat ride features a North-Sea storm,
and a very small waterfall drop, though it seems a lot larger
than it actually is because the ride is relatively dark in places,
(also the fact that you take the drop backwards helps exagerate
the scale of it).
Maelstrom attracts quite long queues during the day, so it is
best to plan to either ride it early in the day, or alternatively,
later on in the evening.
Maelstrom exists into the by now routine presentation about the
country and customs that are behind, and inspired the pavillion.
Note: The Maelstrom boat ride now features the Disney FastPass
