If those are the 2 ideas, I am glad they went back to the drawing boards... I really find it Lazy when theme parks re-use the same technology and re-theme it *Cough* (Transformers/Spiderman) *Cough*. We don't need another motion simulator (Star Tours) ride... I am already dreading what I am seeing with the Avatar (Soaring 2.0) ride. Gringotts was a nice mix of technology. I would not expect anything less than that on an e-ride in SWL. This is stressing me out... and to think we got half a decade to go.
I don't want to see either of the new SW rides be simulators like Star Tours, not because there's something wrong with that system, but because it wouldn't add much to the area. ST is flexible and can add new destinations and experiences, so they should unlock it to its fullest (plus it has pretty large capacity with 6 pods so its a good people eating ride for the land). I wouldn't be surprised to see one of the headline rides be predominantly a simulation/screen based attraction but it needs to be done in a way that sets it apart from Star Tours and adds a new distinct experience.
