Can anyone tell me if the strobe light effect in on Star Tours has always been there, or has it appeared recently. To be more specific the effect is in the star speeder 3000; there are some lights mounted above the doors, and facing away from the screen that go off at pre-programmed times such as when you take laser fire or the speeder crashes into something.
It is new or, either I was sitting in the right (or wrong place) for the effect to be visible or the timing was off so that what was happening was apparent. I thought this was kind of cool it gave an extra kick the vibrations in the simulator and the explosions on the screen.
I still think the ride is tired, though and the film is looking dirty, but I still enjoyed it.
