May The Force Be With You
Star Tours – The Adventures Continue is a 3D motion simulator ride that offers guests to Disney’s Hollywood Studios a number of different ride experiences (including one inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) so it makes perfect sense to ride Star Tours over and over again.
Some of your ride experiences may (or may not) include some of your favorite Star Wars characters like:
- Master Yoda
- Kyo Ren
- Boba Fett
- Poe Dameron
- Princess Leia
- R2-D2 and C-3PO
Based on the highly successful movie franchise, Star Tours is one of the most “funtastic” rides at Disney’s Hollywood Studios combining an exciting ride experience within a highly theme environment. It’s one of the rides that can’t be missed during your next visit to Disney.
Check out our full, on-ride POV video of the Star Tours ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.
This four and one-half minute ride is located in the Echo Lake section of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios past the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! Star Tours originally opened in 1989 but was close in 2010 and rethemed / replaced with the current version of the ride. However, Disney’s continues to add varying experiences to keep riders guessing about their next Star Tours adventure.
Star Tours – The Adventures Continue is suitable for all ages but it is limited to guests 40 inches or taller. As said earlier Star Tours is a 3D motion simulator so if you are sensitive to this type of ride, you may want to take a pass.
Disney’s FastPass+ is offered and highly recommended as wait times will exceed 45 to 60 minutes on a typical summer day. If you can’t get a FastPass+, try to visit this experience first thing in the morning.
