Get a tour behind the scenes on the Studio Backlot Tour. Before boarding the trams, guests are given a demonstration of special water effects. Once on the trams, a tour guide narrates guests through the Backlot, which features the Herbie the Love Bug, a Snowspeeder from Star Wars, and much more. The highlight of the tour is Catastrophe Canyon, which gives an up close and personal demonstration of how directors create disaster scenes in movies. This ride can be entertaining, yet lacks the wow factor that a tour through a fully functioning movie/television studio would produce.
Tips and Trivia
- Sit on the right hand side of the tram if you don’t want to get wet.
