Review of Star Tours the Adventure Continues
Star Tours the Adventure Continues was one of the most hyped overhauls that I can remember. In most cases when something is so hyped it falls short of expectations. Does the new Star Tours fall short?
Overall Star Tours does meet the hype but lets break this review into some pros and cons.
3D - the 3D is t he best 3D I've ever seen. Normally I'm not a fan of 3D.
Glasses - The glasses are not your standard 3D glasses and they seem to fit better.
Multiple Stories - The mix of ride scenes is great and keeps the ride fresh.
New Queue - The new queue has some really nice features.
Use of visitors in the ride - Having one of the visitors being the spy is a really nice touch.
Motion Sickness - If you have a problem with the old, you will have a problem with the new one. My wife got really sick.
Potential of seeing the same thing twice - I rode three times. Two of the rides were almost identical. That was a bummer.
Non-Star Wars fans would miss a lot - If you are not a fan of the movies there are a ton of details that you would miss. If you are not a fan this is basically just a 3D motion simulator.
Overall the new Star Tours is a great overhaul and should stand the test of time.
