Star Tours has been re imagined! And it works!
The old Star Tours was, to be frank, just that. OLD! I never used to like it, since it would make me motion sick. It felt like you were in a big box that's moving and shaking you around (which, well, it what it is) and not like a flight through space. Let's face it, the technology utilized in Mission: Space left Star Tours in the dust, with wait times declining more and more, and going up and up on other rides (coughToyStoryManiacough).
The "new and improved" Space Mountain recently opened at Walt Disney World. Frankly, I don't see what the fuss is all about.
The queue area is much improved. The games look cool. I only got to play for a minute because when I went, for once the line was impossibly short. That exceeded my expectations. I was expecting them to be like in Soarin’, which are no fun and totally pointless (but now we're getting off topic).
Inside the waiting area, there is now a barrier between the track and the waiting area so you can no longer see the track from the line....
