Stitch's Great Escape takes place before the 'Lilo and Stich' movie, where Stich is captured by the Galactic Federation. Riders sit in a circular room on rather strange and uncomfortable chairs. Stitch appears in the middle of the room in a captive chamber but escapes and wreks havoc on the facility. 

The ride uses water, spell and sound to give the effect that Stitch is messing around in the room. The ride is very, very dark and has had its height restriction raised twice in an effort to stop younger kids riding as it can be scary.

Adults will be very unimpressed with this attraction, its often described as the worst attraction in any Disney park. If the park is busy and there is a wait time for this attraction, we recommend just skipping it. 

The ride is in-fact a direct clone of its predecessor; 'Alien Encounter' but with Stitch as the Alien.

Stitch's Great Escape! Ride Tips

This ride may be too scary for some young children.

If you suffer with claustrophobia you may want to give this a miss as you are held in to your seat by overhead restraints.
