The upcoming new StarTours ride has been discussed at length over the course of the past several years. Based on all of the changes that are said to take place, we seem to be looking at a complete overhaul of the current simulator ride. Although it's technology has aged, it is important to remember and take pride in the fact that StarTours is the very first theme park simulated ride experience. Without it, Spiderman would not exist at Universal ..and there would be no talk of Harry Potter or Transformers motion based simuted experiences.
In this thread, I would like to know which aspect(s) that have been projected for StarTours 2.0 intrigue you the most. Is it the digital technology (plasma and HD projection) upgrade, the film footage shot in 3-D, or perhaps Industrial Light and Magic's CGI graphics/special effects? Is it the notion of randomly changing plotlines that excites you most? If not that, the facial recognition technology (allowing audioanimatronic characters to refer to you, personally) may turn you on. Then again, there might be something else that catches or captivates your interest.
Whatever floats your boat or (in this case) propels your ship, I would like to hear about it. A poll will be up soon.
