  • [Fun] Happy 35th Star Tours!

    On this day in 1987, Star Tours opened it's doors and started providing Tours to "Endor".

    The attraction's opening led to Star Wars becoming embedded with Disneyland, and after 35 years, is still going strong! Happy Birthday Star Tours!

    My favorite ride in Tomorrowland!

    Maybe an unpopular opinion, but this is one of those rides where I feel the updated version is better than the original, although I love both.

      As much as I bemoan rides with screen Star Tours has a special place in my heart for me, dunno why. I’m a big Star Wars fan and it’s the first ride that kind of brought everything to life. When you enter those doors and wind through the queue if you let yourself believe just a bit it’s like you’re actually there, which is pretty cool in that tiny and compact experience.

          And it is better than Smuggler's Run, in my opinion.

          I remember being there opening day. Hard to believe it has been 35 years.
          "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

            I remember going that first Summer it was open as much as I was bummed they removed ATIS ( They should have put in the Circle Vision building imho ) as a huge Star Wars fan I was very happy with how it turned out. I still have my Star Tours baseballcap from that first Summer in mint condition.
