    Star Tours "Malfunction" window

    On Star Tours in America, when our starspeeder is hit, the right-side (sometimes rearview) monitor has a message that says "Danger" or something - maybe it says "malfunction."

    I recall that in Paris it said something different, and whatever word it was, resembled an English word that struck me as "not quite fitting" if they had used THAT English word in our attraction. But I can't remember what it was. Does anyone know?

    Its probably "Attention" since it has near the same spelling and meaning in English and French. I'll check in a mo' though.

    I couldn't actually read it from the POV's i'd watched. I wouldn't be surprised if it was "Malfunction" since it took up alot of screen space though. Sadly i'm not as informed as i'd first thought lol.

    That would sound about right.

    Same here, I've just watched loads of on-rides and none of them focused on the side screen. The one that did show the side screen (supposedly in 720p) was too blurry to make out.

    Still though, its a great excuse to watch POVs of a ride i'm fond of, even if it doesn't *quite* fit in Discoveryland
