So folks? What do you think?
I was only able to ride it once, but I was totally impressed. All the animatronics and screens felt like real people who were really there, the blaster shots and the lightsabers were life like, the hologram was super cool!
But I was a bit disappointed with the story line. We tried to join the Resistance and failed? I was fully prepared to say “the Resistance base is in Pecara” at the first opportunity to see the reactions, but there were none, so the whole “thanks for keeping the location of the base safe” felt really empty. I also have a problem with rides that congratulate me for riding (the one ride that I feel like could actually pull that of is MFSR). I agree with @mousematt that the whole seatbelt thing kind of breaks the immersion, but I was still impressed they pulled of an almost believable safety check. The “how many in your group” part shouldn’t make any sense, but at the time it didn’t break immersion for me.
It makes sense that the part you will wait in the most is the boring grey corridor, but it is a little bit frustrating to be moved from an interesting space quickly just to wait in a boring one later.
