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.”

This ride is epic. I actually felt like the vehicle was taken me to these places. I give it 10/10
Jack Mooney
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

Rob Pastor
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.

The recent upgrade of this ride has done wonders for it. The visuals are crisp, the movements fluid, and the unpredictability of your journey make for a fun ride. Of the different ride combinations I've experienced on this ride, they are all excellent and unique in its own way.
Jeff Krinock
The same as Disneyland. This is not a bad thing.
Nick McKaig
What an improvement over the original, which mostly just made me sick. The picture quality is outstanding, the story is always different and fun, and the ride time is long enough that you feel the wait was worth it. Good job Disney! 8/10.
Finally this ride has gotten an update and it's now again a good ride. But it's shocking to see Disney taking so long to improve this ride and expand on this franchise from witch they have the license for so many years. The queue is great but the stuff in front of the ride building and the building itself is awful. This should look like a movie studio and the outside matches that but doesn't match with the inside. The theming here is just wrong.
