The History of & Changes to Maelstrom (OLD VERSION) | Epcot

EDIT (5/7/2018): I recently redid this video with more information and better narration. Please watch that version instead_ https_//www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIOkuzqMY58

In honor of Epcot’s “Maelstrom” a Norwegian themed dark-ride that recently closed. I made a tribute video about the rides past and present and also discussed the changes made to the attraction when it was converted into “Frozen Ever After”

Bonus Info_
– Some additional Maelstrom homage’s in the Norway pavilion_ https_//pbs.twimg.com/media/C7pDUKxXkAIlp82.jpg:large

– Video of the Norway pavilion under construction in 1987_ https_//youtu.be/S0qp0dsorB4?t=3453

– As of September 2017, the polar bear from the ride appears to still be intact and is on property_ https_//twitter.com/BayLakeBoys/status/909536151572242432
