    Iron Man Experience Ride System Change

    I came across this TR from Allears.net . Halfway through the first installment, they mention how their tour guide said that the cast of HKDL was told that the new attraction would be like Soarin but with a new video.

    This contradicts the concept art of the attraction which clearly shows Star Tours like vehicles.

    If this does turn out to be true, I would be disappointed because Soarin's ride system doesn't lend itself well to the fast paced action of the ride which the Star Tours technology could do very well.

    Thoughts?

    I just wish they could use StormRider technology for this ride instead. StormRider, IMHO, is so much better than Star Tours 2.

    Agree!!!! The only disadvantage of Storm Rider is the screen. The overall experience is so much better than Star Tours.

    Rode stormrider a few years ago. It was such a fun ride! I also did Tokyo's star tours when I was a kid but I don't remember well. I reckon stormrider is less intense than star tours since it has a larger cabin (?)
