When you are in line, there are posters from each of Godzilla's 29 films, and a monitor that shows a military commander explaining the history of Godzilla, from his origins as a dinosaur mutated by atomic testing and his rampages that spanned 60 years. He also explains the history of the Godzilla Defense Force, an organization dedicated to defending the world's cities from the rampages of not just Godzilla, but from other giant monsters as well.
The guests are taken into a military briefing room after being recruited by the Godzilla Defense Force. A military commander explains that Godzilla has risen out of the ocean once again and is wreaking havoc and destruction in Los Angeles, and could make his way to Disneyland if not stopped. The guests are then taken into a tram intentionally designed to resemble a military transport aircraft.
Once the guests enter the vehicle, they are flown into Downtown Los Angeles, where the pilot explains they need to find a safe place to land. While Godzilla is destroying buildings with his atomic breath, he looks up and spots the vehicle where the guests are in and attacks it. The pilot tries to escape the rampaging reptile as he destroys buildings left and right. As Godzilla is about to swat the aircraft, he is interrupted by King Ghidorah, the 3-headed dragon. The guests look on as Godzilla engages in battle with his nemesis, as heat, smoke, light, and steam effects are blown onto guests to further the illusion. Godzilla then incapacitates Ghidorah by blasting his middle head off with his atomic breath. Godzilla then roars in victory as the guests are taken back to Disneyland with a shot of Los Angeles in ruins, and the ride ends.After the ride, there is a gift shop where guests can get Godzilla-related products, such as Godzilla movies, Godzilla action figures, Disneyland-exclusive Godzilla souveniers and even a Godzilla statue with Mickey Mouse ears on it. There's also a meet and greet area where you can take pictures with Godzilla and say hi to him.
