Ok I have an awesome idea for Star Tours after hearing all this talk about it being refurbed.
Ok first of all, Star Tours would still be a tour with a robot or somebody else leading the tourists. But instead of having everyone traveling on one ship, each person can walk into a ship that can fit two. The ships would be located in a space dock or something with nice theming around it. Inside the ship, there is all crazy gizmos and such but the windows are actually 3d projectors circling the tourists for a very realistic feel. Tourists would have to use 3d goggles for the screens. The leader of the tour will say the ships are on a set course so no one will have to worry about driving. Then they lift off and the ship will rise and sway and turn in the direction of what the tourists see outside the window. Outside you window you'll see all the other ships around you, planets, comets rushing by you, and other beautiful scenery. Later, the tourist group gets in trouble and the leader tells them how to shoot the guns on the ship for safety but the person doesn't really have too that part is just for show. The tourist group escapes the battle and returns back to the space dock.
I think it would be awesome having your own ship, being able to shoot, and having 3d projectors around you would be awesome.
Maybe it seems better in my head but I think it still sounds awesome.
