October 5, 2014 – The Maelstrom Boat Ride Closes in Epcot’s Norway

“Exploring Norway’s heritage isn’t going to be smooth sailing, so buck up like a Viking would!”

On October 5, 2014, the Maelstrom boat ride attraction officially closed in the Norway Pavilion within Epcot’s World Showcase. Guests explored Norway from past to present, riding in Viking-inspired longboats through scenery that changes from fjords to swamps, meeting trolls, polar bears, and pirates. The middle of the ride featured the boats plummeting backwards down rapids and narrowly missing a waterfall. After dodging all the obstacles, guests were treated to a five-minute film about the beauty of present-day Norway. The attraction was closed to make way for the Frozen Ever After attraction, which featured several of the Maelstrom’s ride elements, including the boats traveling backwards.
