During Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Guests will be able to climb into the cockpit and take control of the famous ship.
While in line for the ride, Guests will actually believe that they are boarding the Millennium Falcon. As you enter the maintenance bay, you pass Ohnaka’s Transport Solutions. Guests will climb gantries through a working shipping and machine shop, all while getting views of the Falcon from every angle.
The plot of Smuggler’s Run involves helping space pirate leader Hondo Ohnaka. Hondo has bargained with Chewbacca to use the Millennium Falcon to smuggle goods, but he needs a flight crew, which you will be a part of.
