Walk along the Rue Georges Méllès, past the Restaurant des Stars, and you will automatically reach the Backlot area. Action and thrills are guaranteed in this part of Walt Disney Studios Park.
The Backlot is characterized by the Armadillo, a huge shiny metallic spacecraft that was used in the film Armageddon. Space lovers are only a small step away from their next big adventure, because from here it is only a few meters to the entrance of the attraction Armageddon, which is all about special effects.
Across the street it is a bit quieter, familiar movie sets are set up here and in front of it is Piazza Sergio Leone, which is dedicated to the great director.
The action-packed rollercoaster Rock'n'Roller Coaster is hard to miss. Here you can take a tour through the Force Records studio, where Aerosmith is waiting for you. However, you need to be brave when visiting the recording studio, because loopings and a catapult start are part of the program.
If you have survived the visit to the recording studio, there is even more action. This time, however, it is more to watch: the Stunt Show arena is just around the corner. This is where daring stuntmen put their skills to test several times a day.
What is a Backlot?
An area on the site of a film studio on which an outdoor set is built is called a Backlot. As a rule, only the facades of buildings are erected, which saves time and costs. In this way, outdoor scenes can also be shot on site.
