Armageddon - Les Effets Speciaux was an attraction at Walt Disney Studios Park at the Disneyland Paris in France. It is based on the 1998 Touchstone film Armageddon. The principle is to demonstrate set effects, as in the film, within a full room using special effects.

Preshow

The guests enter Studio 7-A or Studio 7-B, where a Cast Member explains them the part they are about to play in the shooting. After a pre-show presentation, which includes a short history of special effects, and a speech from Michael Clarke Duncan ("Bear" in the movie), guests learn they will enter the recreation of the Space Station Mir from the film. Two main characters will join them: the central computer of the Station, and Colonel Andropov. The films and spiel of both studio's are identical, although they have different art work on display.

Show

Guests then proceed onto the set of the Station's main deck. As the show starts with the director's call of "Action!", several scenes ensue. Windows opening either on Space or on Earth let guests witness the arrival of a meteorite rain. As it hits the station, several disfunctions occur, including lights flickering, gas bursting into the cabin, the ceiling threatening to collapse and incandescent rocks crossing the room. At one point, the build-up of pressure in the pipes causes a part of the wall to be pulled out, letting air escape until a tight door closes. Finally, as guests can see the main meteor arriving on them, a powerful explosion occurs. A voice calling "Cut!" closes the show.

The whole attraction lasts about 22 minutes with a capacity of 170 people.
