Star Tours was one of those rides that was an instant classic. It had Star Wars, cutting edge technology, a great queue line and Paul Ruebens (Pee Wee Herman). It admittedly, was a little predictable but it was still amazing. Then the Star Wars Prequels happened. all of a sudden it wasn’t so cutting edge and amazing. Finally after a long time in development Star Tours 2: the Adventure Continues has opened.Way to go, Disney.
The other major change is in the queue line. Before you walked through a type of factory where droids were being put together and taken apart. Shadow projections were everywhere and you were able to see a lot of your favorite characters from the films. now the whole area is themed to a sort of Spaceport, complete with Jedi’s walking by windows, luggage sorting and a TSA full body scanner with a Droid that barks rules at you.
The queue line was still a Star Wars queue line. Filled with bright vibrant colors, R2D2 and C-3Po. the bickering old droid couple was there, and brighter than they had ever been. the TSA droid was funny, giving a lot of interaction with the line.
