Star Tours, The Adventure Continues
Star Tours, The Adventure Continues is a simulated ride where the theater moves in addition to 3D effects on the screen ahead of you. The movement is a bit jerky. However, this ride is relatively mild in comparison to most thrill attractions.
The queue for Star Tours is relatively long and offers the opportunity to see a few droids and starships while waiting. The queue can extend to an outdoor area when lines are incredibly long.
While Star Tours does have a decent load capacity, it can hold long lines throughout the day. So your best bet is to ride it later in the afternoon or early evening when wait times tend to drop.
Will I get motion sickness on Star Tours?
If you are prone to motion sickness, then it is a possibility. But for most, I would say this attraction is mild.
For example, I don’t care for the gravitational pull of a ride like Mission: SPACE over at Epcot. However, I have ridden Star Tours many times over the years without any trouble.
The ride is a bit bumpy, and sometimes the jerky movements feel a little rough. I would describe them as similar to a plane not so gracefully touching down on the tarmac.
Make sure to secure any belongings in the cargo net underneath your seat. Even if you carry a large backpack, it should fit into the compartment storage.
When you are finished, there are several bins to dispose of your 3D viewing glasses. If you miss the containers, there is usually one in the ride shop at the end of the exit.
