    I am willing to bet Hong Kong will get it before DLP ;-) LOL

    ^ Sounds about right.

    Not that it'd happen, but wouldn't it be great if they built Star Tours 2 in WDS - in a Star Wars mini land. The old Star Tours space could then be used for another addition to Discoveryland.

    I hope they do something soon. When we were over in Octover with some friends who usually go to WDW they couldn't believe the state of the whole attraction. The sound went during our first ride....which was a strange experience.

    ^That must have been surreal. Now if it was in the States I'm sure there would have been an aficionado on board who knew the script verbatim and could have filled in.

    The attraction does need some TLC though. Last time I rode it, the rubber on the armrest had been picked off leaving a scruffy mess and exposed metal frame.

    The hilarious bit was us (being huge star wars fans) did know the script, but the sounds of the machinery and the obvious panic of the other guests made us keep out mouths shut (sensibly).

    We rode it several times over the 3 days we were there and on every one we went on (different cruisers) there was a seat out of commission or broken armrests. Was really sad.

    Not to mention what happened to the aftershow, or the 'Star Wars Shed' as we ended up calling it. I still don't understand why they thought filling that space with second rate amusement arcade machines (some of which were also broken) would make any sense to anyone. Surely it would have been better to make that a retail space and the current star traders a character spot?

    I couldn't agree more. The exit is dire. Certainly in need of a complete overhaul, even if Paris keeps the original Star Tours. And, from what I can remember, its quite a generous space and could house something decent.

    Don't have photos, but it used to be full of unique interactive items, such as machines which would take your photo and distort it, computers that would read your fortune, and a big 16-player space "bumper-cars" game, on a big screen, where all the players stood on pogo-like platfroms and titled them to try to bash into one another. (sounds weird, but was quite fun).

    All of these items were free to use as well -which was nice, and the queues were always quite long, so the only reason I think it disappeared was the maintenance costs.
    There fell into disrepair and were never fixed

    That's what I remember!!! What a waste of space, it really is an shame that whole corner of the park seems to have been forgotten.

    I think that Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, Space Mountain: Back to the Moon and The Ride Replacing Captain EO will come in Disneyland Paris in 2015 as part of a new Discoveryland project. Why ? Because...

    The first two would be great already. I think we need star tours 2 and it would be awesome to have space mountain back to its original form

    That would be awesome, but I doubt it. We are talking about Disneyland Paris and there money is always an issue.

    May I ask from where did you get those rumours about a new Discoveryland. I just hope that Disney will not put more Disney and Pixar characters into Discoveryland. Buzz should have never been built there.

    Which ride should replace Captain EO? I can imagine that Star Tours will get the upgrade and I would be very happy to see the old version of SM to return. Never liked the new soundtrack as much as I did the old one. If that's true, than Disney should replace the bumpy track as well.
