||Great motion simulator ride,
all the better for being supported by the Star Wars storyline
The Star Tours attraction, inspired by George
Lucas' Star Wars films, is an enclosed simulator ride, which synchronises
the latest in motion simulator technology with a stunning film
sequence to provide an impressive ride.
During the attraction, (once in the simulator) guests
are supposed to be taken on a leisurely cruise to the Moon of
Endor, but the 5-minute ride soon turns into a deep-space fight
and chase sequence, which sees the small craft dodging asteroids,
along with a number of laser toting enemy fighters.
As simulators go, some of the newer generation are
certainly a litle more violent, and maybe because of the specific
film sequences used, more realistic (Wild Arctic at Seaworld for
one), however, Star Tours remains a classic simulator attraction,
which is well worth the queue.
NOTE: because of the erratic motion of the ride,
it is not recommended for anyone with a back, neck, or heart complaint.
Also the ride carries a minimum height restriction of 40 inches.
Children under 7 must be accompanied by an adult, and children
under 3 are not permitted in the simulator.
