Finally! Finally, after three months since its opening day, I took a ride into the futuristic lands of Star Wars with Star Tours.
I loved it! I was never a devoted fan to the original though so I am not the best person to look to for a full review/comparison of the ride. It’s definitely a good time and that’s the point of the ride, isn’t it?
Before I share my photos from the trip, I just wanted to let all of you know about this awesome iPhone/Android app that will help you keep track of which destinations you made it to as there are over 50 scenarios for your trip. The app can be found here:
But if you don’t have an iPhone or Droid, or don’t care to download it, you can track your progress online here. And here’s a quick run through of the various destinations and variations:
The rebel spy beginning will begin with one of these characters
- Darth Vader
- Scan droid
First planet stop you can visit
- Hoth (Empire Strikes Back battle)
- Tatooine (Pod racing scene)
You will receive a hologram message from
- Princess Leia
- Admiral Ackbar
Second planet stop you can visit
- Naboo (Phantom Menace battle)
- Coruscant (Clone wars battle)
- Geonosis (Death Star battle)
And finally, I just wanted to share a few photos from the entrance to the queue and then a little fun photo with my friend Amie in our very cool 3D glasses.
