Crush’s Coaster, located at Walt Disney Studios Park, is one of the park’s most popular attractions, but was closed for a time due to ongoing construction. Although the attraction is now open, much of the entrance and queue remains demolished. With the 30th anniversary just weeks away, Disney is hard at work trying to get all of its attractions ready for the big day. Thankfully, Crush’s Coaster seems to have made some headway on entry.

DLP Report (@DLPReport) shared a photo of the construction in progress.

The renovation of the Crush’s Coaster entrance and queue is progressing!

Although progress is being made, we can still see that there is a lot of work to be done on the roller coaster.

Disneyland Paris describes the ride as follows:

Crush’s Coaster: Finding thrills in the deep blue sea
Join Crush and his friends in Toon Studio®, where you’ll find the sound stage and set from the Disney•Pixar movie, Finding Nemo. Then, after admiring the Sydney Harbor scenery, climb aboard a turtle shell and get ready for a ride through memorable moments from the film.
Sit tight, as your seashell dives into the ocean and begins its incredible journey. At the start, Nemo, Squirt, and other familiar faces welcome you to the Great Barrier Reef. But the serenity doesn’t last long, as you’re plunged into the darkest depths, where a sunken submarine is surrounded by voracious glowfish, jellyfish and sharks. At Crush’s Coaster, danger lurks. However, just in time, the strong East Australian current lifts you and spirals you back to Sydney Harbor for a rousing reception.

Before Disney World and Disneyland implemented Disney Genie, we saw Disneyland Paris leading the pack with Premier Access. Premier Access is a pay-per-ride system that allows guests to choose a return time for any of the rides available in Premier Access. Each ride has its own individual cost associated with it and can only be used once to skip the queue. These costs are expected to fluctuate depending on the season and the level of Park activity. This applies to both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. The only other Disney park that offers a Premier Access system is Shanghai Disney.

At Disneyland Paris, many changes are on the horizon for the Walt Disney Studios and their Disneyland park, a few weeks before the 30th anniversary. Walt Disney Studios is adding a massive addition that will include star warswonder and Frozen, as well as their very own Avengers Campus, which will be the first section to open in the park.
