Which version of Star Tours 2 did you get?Walt Disney World: We're doing a little crowdsourced reporting here. Vote for which of the 54 possible versions that you've seen.
From Robert NilesNow that both the east-coast and west-coast versions of Star Tours are open (in soft openings at Disneyland), let's do a little crowdsourced reporting, shall we?

Vote below to note which of the 54 possible combinations you've seen while riding Star Tours: The Adventures Continue.
If this truly is a random selection process, the votes should even out over time.

From KJ SimpsonGreat idea! I just put in my two- it looks like I'm only the second respondent, though. I can't wait to see how/if this thing evens out! I rode twice, and got the speeder bikes twice- but all the other elements were different between my two rides. I find the randomization really interesting...

From Tony DudaI rode it 6 times this weekend and had a repeat, Vader Hoth Yoda Naboo. Except one ride was female spy and one male, Yoda switches 'he' and 'she' so they weren't "exactly" the same. Also had 5 Vaders and one droid.

From Tyler CYesterday I rode 6 times. Each ride was practically identical it really didn't feel random at all. Each ride started with Vader, I never saw the Stormtrooper intro. Then I got the speeder bikes and the pod race three times each, Admiral Ackbar for every hologram and the underwater sequence for each ending!! I only went on it so many times because I wanted to see the Death Star and Hoth but alas it never came to be. I was upset and really didn't get the randomization I had hoped for. I did get thrown up on... no lie! Second ride, and I got a little splatter from a kid right behind me. He was barfing the whole ride! And the dad never said any thing to the ride attendant he just snuck his kids out the exit!

From Terry O'NealDoes Ackbar say "it's a trap"?

From Tyler StoverRode it once, got Vader, Hoth, Yoda, Naboo which at this time seems to be the most common. Vader had a ton of stormtroopers tagging along so I'm curious how the stormtrooper scene is different. I feel like we got the better deal. They only go stormtroopers. We got stormtroopers AND Vader.

From Tony DudaThe stormtroopers have a droid stopping the starspeeder instead of Vader. It seems that the Vader beginning is statistically way too common to be pure chance.

From Don NealWill ride it Saturday for the first time. Looking forward to it!

From Karen JohnsonI rode it seven times last night and it was different every time. Got to see all of the scenes at least twice except for Corsucant (once). Five Darth Vaders, though. Would like to "vote" again after the next time I go...is this possible?

From Ted HeumannWe rode it twice on Memorial Day and got the stormtroopers both times.
Posted May 31, 2011 at 12:27 PM
We got stormtroopers,Kakkysk, Akbar, Corrusant and then we got stormtroopers, Tatonie, Yoda, Naboo.
We were able to ride it two times close together. We were blessed with 4 fastpasses given to us by someone who was leaving, so my son and I rode two times within about 15-20 minutes.
From Tony DudaI heard on a podcast that, in the background of the stormtroopers-droid opening, Han Solo can be seen fighting stormtroopers and getting in the Millennium Falcon and escaping out of the star port. I only saw that opening once and didn't see it. Did anyone here?

From Tim WDuring our recent visit, we rode it 3 times. We got
Posted May 31, 2011 at 8:13 PM
1)Darth Vader, Kashyyyk speeder bikes, Princess Leia, Traffic on Coruscant
2)Darth Vader, Hoth AT-AT battle, Princess Leia, Naboo underwater chase
3)Stormtroopers, Tatooine pod race, Yoda, Death Star dogfight
I have to say that we are pretty lucky to have experienced every available sequence, in only 3 rides. I have to say that version 2 was most thrilling. Hoth and Naboo were definately my favorite parts of the ride!
From Robert NilesBut you didn't get Admiral Ackbar?

From Kurt LarsonI finally got to ride it.
Posted June 2, 2011 at 11:50 AM
I got Darth/Hoth/Yoda/ and Naboo.
Even the Star Wars nerd in me couldn't complain about Jar Jar.
It's much better for Star Wars fans. I think Disney really took a lot of consideration in selecting options. Well done. As both a Disney and Star Wars freak, I wrote a lot about it.
From Ed NewmanRode Star Wars only once during our visit to Orlando last week. My 7 year old niece (who is not at all familiar with Star Wars) seemed to enjoy it pretty well. She even wanted to do a re-ride but our time (and the crowds) would not allow it.

Nice updates to the ride and que area. Among the highlights we experienced were the Hoth battle and and a quick visit to the Death Star (not much of a dogfight there, IMO). In retrospect, I also cannot recall how good the 3D effects were.
