Pre Ride Video

Kermit welcomes guests and introduces himself and several other muppets as their tour gides to the ride and tell them that they are about embark through the history of movies.Kermit then introduces the guests to Dr. Honeydew and Beaker who explain that your "tram" is really a new prototype they've invented especially for the ride and go through a safety speil of things you shouldn't do while on the attraction (using Beaker as the example of course).

Ride

After guests board a tram, they start moving towards theater doors and the Muppets start singing "Hey a Movie!" as guests move through the Muppet Theater. Audio animatronic versions of Statler and Waldorf on a golf cart heckle the guests and tell them that they're going the wrong way as they zoom off into the darkness. Janice shows up on a the tram's video screen and tells guests that they're about to go into her favorite movie,"The Wizard of Oz" with herself as Dorothy and she rushes off to change. Guests then move into the Munchkin village which is in chaos as Miss Piggy dressed as Glinda the good witch is swinging all over the place from a rope as her bubble acts as a makeshift wrecking ball causing Janice and the Munchkins (played by Rizzo and the rats) to duck and causing her to dent the tram as Andy and Randy Pig desperately try to get her down. On the tram's video screen, Kermit apologizes for the fiasco yet Statler and Waldorf in their golf cart say it's an improvement.

Kermit then turns the video screen over to Uncle Deadly. Uncle Deadly tells the guests that they are heading into the Frankenstein set. The guests enter the old, shadowy castle, surrounded with strange scientific machines, test tubes and generators buzzing and flashing all around. Riders see Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Crazy Harry, ready to pull the switch on a giant Beaker. Gonzo, in jodhpurs and a beret, shouts directions through a megaphone, while a team of rats man the equipment and Animal works the camera. Two rats run through a hamster wheel powering a generator providing power to the machinery via a cable - and via Fozzie Bear, who, holding the two ends of the cable in each hand, would light up each time the machinery sparks.

Statler and Waldorf then heckle the guests again. Wayne and Wanda tell guests they're about to go under the sea and enter the Nautilus. Guests enter the set of "20,000 Leauges Under the Sea" where Beaker, Kermit, Lips, Zoot, Floyd, Fozzie and Gonzo are being attacked by a squid while Dr. Teeth as Captain Nemo tires to fight off the squid with a harpoon. Animal is also seen biting the squid's tentacle. Scooter is also shown getting attacked by the squid outside of the sub. Statler and Waldorf then heckle Fozzie but get they too get attacked by the squid.

Then Gonzo and Rizzo appear on a screen and tell the guests that they're about to enter an Egyptian temple with Indiana Jones. Guests enter the set of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" where Johnny Fiama as Indy and Sal Minella as Sallah try to lift the Ark while several muppet ghosts fly around the set scaring the two.

Fozzie then appears on the screen and tells them they're heading into the USS Swinetrek for the upcoming "Pigs in Space: The Movie". As the guests move into the bridge of the Swinetrek, the crew is currently locked in battle with a bunch of Stormtrooper Chickens, lead by Dearth Nadir (Gonzo). Statler and Waldorf heckle Gonzo, the pigs and the chickens until they get shot by a laser blast, splitting their vehicle in two.

Robin then introduces the last movie,"Peter Pan". The guests move into the set where Kermit as Peter Pan, Janice, Scooter and Bean Bunny as the Darling children fly over a cardboard cut-out London, each in a very visible harness dangling by rope from a rig above. Miss Piggy, as Tinker Bell is swinging all over the place, causing a Miss Piggy shaped hole in the backdrop, as the team of rats, Andy and Randy Pig, Sweetums and Animal, desperately try to get her under control, Kermit (still dressed as Peter Pan appears on the tram's video screen and onto the ride's grand finale.

For the grand finale, the Muppets (joined by Statler and Waldorf) sing a reprise of "Hey a Movie!". Kermit then thanks the riders for joining the tour and to enjoy the rest of their day.
