Star Tours – The Adventures Continue

Star Tours

Star Tours – The Adventures Continue is a 3D motion simulator that takes guests on a lightspeed journey through the Star Wars universe. Guests enter the Starspeeder 1000 for a scenic tour courtesy of Star Tours. This tour is quickly halted due to the presence of a spy from the Rebel Alliance. Guests are taken on a whirlwind tour of the Star Wars universe. Because the attraction is randomized, you never know where you might end up.

Guests may visit Coruscant, Naboo, or even the Death Star, in addition to other locations. You may even end up being chased by a bounty hunter like Boba Fett! On your Star Tours tour, you will be piloted by C-3PO and R2-D2. In addition to these characters, you may encounter Princess Leia, Admiral Ackbar, Darth Vader, Jar Jar Binks, Chewbacca, or any of a variety of other Star Wars characters. There are over 50 combinations of Star Tours adventures with scenes from all of the Star Wars films, even The Force Awakens. You can experience unique adventures nearly every time you ride Star Tours, making it a ride that can be enjoyed again and again.
