    Sorry, Vicky, but your son is right. It was built in Disney-MGM Studios and opened there in 1990.

    You may be thinking of Body Wars, which was in Epcot's Wonders of Life pavilion. It actually opened before Star Tours and used a similar flight simulator cabin.

    The body wars ride that used to be in Epcot was very similar to star tours.

    I can think of at least three possibilities, the most likely one is that you are thinking of the old "Body Wars" ride which used the EXACT SAME types of simulators as Star Tours, only the storyline was that you were being shrunk down to observe the site of an infection in a human body.

    If it was not so much a similar ride vehicle you are recalling, but rather the "outer space" setting, then perhaps you are thinking of Horizons, which had some scenes set in space, or going back a bit further in time Captain Eo was also set in space.

    Right, and they even used the same footage as when you break through the ice crystal in Star Tours as part of the Body Wars ride, only this section was red/orange instead of blue/white.
