    Star Tours. 3 rides, same destinations each time. What are the odds? or was it broke?

    Rode with my Mom who was in town Thursday. Wanted her to experience some different destinations. Ended up with the same beginning (robot), same 1st destination(Pod race), different person, the same 2nd destination(asteroids with bounty hunter) each time we rode it.

    I'm thinking the computer was having a problem that controls the randomness if the ride? Don't want to think or research so what were the odds of this occuring.

    Anyone else noticing anything wierd?

    its just bad luck. if the ride was broke it would have just shut off

      I'd prefer that over Kashyyyk. I get that darn place almost every time.

        The expectation of an equal distribution of outcomes is not a real characteristic of randomness, just a near universal human misconception.

          As of last trip, I've officially seen every scene.

          But when ever we go, we still almost always get:

            Well technically speaking, random resets itself with every segment. You have a 1 in 3 chance to get any destination, regardless of what you've previously gotten. So if, for example, you get Robot--> Hoth--> Leia--> Naboo, for your next ride your odds are:

            1 out of 2 to get Robot
            1 out of 3 to get Hoth
            1 out of 3 to get Leia
            1 out of 3 to get Naboo

            For mathematical purposes, Robot--> Hoth--> Leia--> Naboo, and Robot--> Hoth--> Yoda--> Naboo are two totally different rides. It just seems the same because only one element has changed.

                assuming you have gone once, the odds of getting that same sequence (same intro, first, and last dest) is 1/18. the odds of hitting that 2 consec times (for your 3rd ride) are 1/324.

                    But what are the odds of all that happening when my Mom is visiting and riding for the very first time and I'm trying to show her how cool the new Star Wars is.

                          We went on Star Tours once on Wednesday and we got some (quite thrilling) scene in the snow where you almost fall off a cliff. I think we were put in the farthest to the right theater.

                            We almost always get:

                            Darth Vader - Hoth - Yoda - Death Star/Boba Fett

                            My husband thinks its broken.

                              I was sure I had seen every scene on this since we have been on it 25 + times... and seen the same scenes several times each...

                              But then.... on Saturday... we get Death Star/Boba Fett. Completely new to us.

                                Ooh, jealous. I got Darth Vader only 3 or 4 times in my 25-ish rides. The rest of it was fairly random.

                                And although it's a random selection, it's selected by a computer and computers are more often that not really only "pseudo-random."

                                  Cooler than getting Yoda every time I've ever been on the ride... 20+ times....

                                    Out of all the times I've been on the ride, I've only seen Tattooine once, and the Death Star once.

                                    Luckily when I was the Rebel Spy, we got Vader!

                                      Dang, I had no idea that the scenes change. I would have rode more had I known.
