A new, unique smart phone game will be available to play while queuing for Crush’s Coaster from September 2014. The game will be accessible via a dedicated WiFi network available only in the queuing system.
The video shows that once connected to the network, the game is accessible via a smartphone’s web browser. This means that it is likely that the game will be playable on a large range of devices, spanning Android and iOS.
The game itself involves moving Crush around the screen to pick-up stars and avoid rocks. “Crush’s Coaster: The game”, which is currently only shown in the video in French, was tested by Cast Members from the Annual Passport team. It is not clear whether the game will be made available in English or other languages.
The new game, which is the only of its kind in Disneyland Paris, is likely to be received well by fans due to the incredibly long queue times of the Crush’s Coaster attraction, and relatively unexciting theming of the exterior bulk of the queuing system. The ride often has queue times exceeding one hour long, and Disneyland Paris recently introduced a Single Rider queue to help maximise the attraction’s capacity. Disney will be hoping that this new game will make the queue at least seem to go a bit faster!
Disneyland Paris has now given an official press release on Crush’s Coaster The Queue Game, the details of which are shown below. Highlights include that the game features 5 increasingly difficult levels and will be available in both French and English.
