    Star Tours

    Who here loves the Star Tours ride? For example, would you pick it over any other ride? Or do you like it enough to only sacrifice a "small" ride for it?

    It's ok. I'll ride it, but it's not something I HAVE to ride.

    It's a good ride and I would sacrafice a small ride for it, but otherwise, it gives me motion sickness.

    Sadly, as I get older, it makes me queasier and queasier. I will always ride it if I am with people who want to go on it - but if I am at the park by myself, I usually skip it (although I always go into TatooineTraders!)

    Re: Star Tours

    My boys and I love it. Now that Toy Story Mania is at the Studios it is a must do for us as well, but we always ride Star Tours at least 5 or 6 times a day while we are there. I just wish they would update it and give it a little TLC.

    I think it badly needs an update, which is supposedly coming. I loved it when I first rode it on DL in its first year. It was revolutionary. Now you can ride a flight sim ride in your local shopping mall. But for nostalgia, I'll ride it.

    I think the sim rides are just cheesy cop-outs. I like to actually move through the ride building and see AA's and dioramas.

    Re: Star Tours

    When I was little, Star Tours was one of my favorite rides, because it was the wildest thing I could go on. Because of those fun memories, this is a ride that I never miss if I have any control over it.
