Video: Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in LA

The most famous and beloved of all the Star Wars spaceships is the Millennium Falcon and now fans can fly it themselves at Disneys new theme park, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Los Angeles.

Galaxy's Edge has now officially opened and guests are expected to flock to the park for years to come to bury themselves in all things Star Wars.

The Millennium Falcon Smugglers: Run ride is a massive drawcard. Disney is calling the new park the largest and most technologically advanced single-themed land expansion in their history and they've not spared the horses on their big ticket ride.

Guests get to fly the Falcon six at a time - two pilots, two gunners and two flight engineers.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, located in Anaheim, will only add to the area reportedly being consistently the most visited mainland US destination by Kiwis.

"New Zealand cleared 300,000 visitors to the US per annum for the first time earlier this year," says Anaheim Tourism.

"Added to the arrival numbers the average length of stay in Anaheim is approximately eight nights and makes New Zealand a valuable market."

Galaxy's Edge covers almost seven hectares of land of rides and experiences, including shops selling personal droids, lightsabers and Star Wars-themed food and drink.
