Unfortunately, there won’t be a soft opening for the guests that I’m aware of. I’m project captain for Star Wars Weekends, and the entire event is surrounded by the underlying theme of Star Tours. The only people who will ride it before opening day are: CMs, The Press, and a group of Lucas’ people brought in for the event.

However, it opens a week from yesterday!

I stand corrected. Plans change at any time here. Just walked past Star Tours and they were doing a SOFT OPENING!!!


#10

Soft opening??? Do you think they will have a soft opening on Wednesday?


#11

It’s possible. That’s all I can say :biggrin:


#12

OMG ~ I’m so surprised!


#13

Opened at 10 am sunday the 15th for soft opening.
Great ride.

Anyone know if they are going to keep it open all week leading up to Star Wars Weekend? We arrive on Tuesday and are headed to the Studios on Wed! :goofybounce:


#15

Up to the minute they opened the ride, CM’s were telling everyone that came by that “they” knew of no plan to open the ride.
So bottom line is no one knows.

>>An app for what?<<

Everything!!!.. just kidding… I’m an Apple fan from the '80’s. <g>

This free app is for Star Tours 2 wait times, and information about the attraction w links to other Star Tours 2 sites.
Pretty neat. I have it on my iPad and iPhone.
