Star Tours: The Adventures Continue revamps Disney’s original Star Tours ride with a 3D projection system and multiple, randomly-selected scene options during your trip into space. (Note that this is a motion-simulator-type ride — not a good option for people prone to motion sickness.) Once aboard your Starspeeder, you’ll learn that one of the passengers is a rebel spy (maybe it will be you!) But, of course, the Empire’s trying to find the spy, so it’s up to C3PO and R2D2 to get you and your fellow passengers to safety. Along the way you might encounter Darth Vader, Imperial Stormtroopers, pod racers on Tatooine, a rebel battle on Hoth, speeder bikes on the Wookie planet of Kashyyyk, Yoda, Princess Leia, Admiral Ackbar, traffic on Coruscant, an underwater chase on Naboo, or a dogfight around the Death Star. (In case you are wondering, there are 54 possible combinations of scenes on the ride.) In the years ahead, Disney is planning on revamping the area around Star Tours into a complete Star Wars land, with multiple restaurants, stores, and attractions themed to the “galaxy far, far away.”


The GOOD: Very fun and lighthearted. The queue is fantastic and the ride is enjoyable. The combination of scenes make it easy to ride multiple times.
The BAD: The ride itself is basically a simulator, nothing too spectacular. It can also cause motion sickness pretty easily.
RATING: A fun ride that should certainly be done. Not a "wow" attraction however. 8/10.
Talk about an improvement over the original, Star Tours is now better than ever! The screen and quality of it is truly amazing, the queue is absolutely great, the movements are so fluid and everything looks so crisp and new. The story is different every time you ride with different fun experience each time you ride it. It is for sure a must do. 8.5/10
On my first ride on new Star Tours, I was blown away. It was one of my favorite rides in the resort, but, after multiple rides at both Disney World and Disneyland, it loses its initial wow factor. It still remains a great ride, but I don't consider it a must do for me anymore. I have experienced all the journeys, and I feel that I always get the duds. For someone who hasn't ridden it though, it is a definite must do. 8/10
If your a hardcore Star Wars fan (like me) you will LOVE this ride , it takes you to a variety of Star Wars planets and you encounter a variety of different characters. If your not that big of a Star Wars fan you will still enjoy enjoy this ride very much but not as much as a Star Wars fan would.
This ride is epic. I actually felt like the vehicle was taken me to these places. I give it 10/10
I enjoyed this ride. It is a big improvement over the First attraction and it is entertaining. I would have to say it did get some motion sickness and this is not outstanding for Disney. 8/10
I'm not typically a fan of simulator rides, but this one I thought was pretty good. The queue was amazing (like most of Disney's queues) and the ride itself wasn't terrible. You do get to see a lot of your favorite Star Wars characters and wear 3D glasses which is always cool. Like a good portion of Disney's rides, they're probably more exciting to younger kids, but I would consider this a "must-do" attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios because of the whole experience.
Overall - 7.5/10
I love this ride SO MUCH. 10/10

Our favorite ride at Hollywood Studios. We rode it 12 times on our last vacation. The different ride scenarios keep the attraction fresh & interesting. Nice queue and interesting pre ride video.
A definite improvement aesthetically over the previous incarnation. The story, however, is not. I realize this is nitpicky and doesn't apply to everyone, but the ride completely disregards the Star Wars timeline. If that bothers you, this ride might leave you gnashing your teeth. If this doesn't apply to you, then you will have a good time with decent thrills and a great-looking screen. 7/10
I'll just preface this review by saying that I am not at all a fan of the Star Wars franchise. I did, however, enjoy the original version of the ride. It took inspiration from the themes and settings of Star Wars and turned them into a well-constructed simulator ride. Your enjoyment of the original ride did not depend on your enjoyment of the franchise on which it is based. However, the new version does. It just shoehorns characters in for no purpose than brand recognition, and most of the characters serve no purpose in the loose narrative thread. There was obviously a lot of work put into this ride, and it is one of the rides that does have appeal to many people. However, it does not appeal to me. As a simple simulator ride, it is fine. For Star Wars fans, it fills its purpose. As an enjoyable experience rife with clever writing and a creative premise, it pales in comparison to The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios.
