This is a ride that did not need to be made. We never rode this when it was maelstrom so I cannot reference back. When you renovate a ride it should not feel like the old ride or have the same scenery. It is clear...More

This ride is NOT worth a wait in line more than 10 minutes. Norway had a good ride with Maelstrom and an excellent film about Norway. Nobody came. So they replaced the story with characters from Frozen and a few short clips of songs. Barely...More

Maelstrom better represented the Norwegian culture than Frozen does currently. It’s the same track with a different theme. The music and animation is very good but they should’ve just built a new ride and left Maelstrom alone.

For those who remember Maelstrom it is basically the same ride but with a new scenery. The animation is very good. You see most main characters from Frozen, they sing and entertain you as you travel through the ride. I thought I would miss Maelstrom...More

This is such a lovely sweet ride and notorious for it's very lengthly queue. It's worth it though for the scenery, the costumes, the music and the dark boat ride. I haven't seen Frozen but this ride is stunning.

My family loved the interactive, mischievous narration. We loved the scenery, costumes, and belting out "Let it Go!" along with performers.

This ride is so adorable, I don't even know where to start! You meet Olaf, Anna, Kristoff, Sven, and when you get to Elsa's ice castle, thats where you meet Elsa! Definitely worth the wait!

There is a small drop with a small splash. You might get a little wet, but it is not scary.
