    Yea, I know there's a lot to the ride. I just hope it all comes together.

    I’m impressed by what I’ve been seeing and heard so far. Anyone know how effective the screens are at establishing depth of field ? I know they probably squinch on the ride but the hangar seems like it’d be a bit trickier. I suppose if the Star field is always moving it will be pretty effective.
    Can’t wait for more!

    After my second and third ride on FOP the other week, and I really like FOP a lot, it became really obvious that it was a BTF/Simpsons/Soarin 2.0 attraction. Bottom line is that the definition is many times better plus the scent and water effects done so well. But the third time I was on it, sitting about 4 from the end, it was very evident, and somewhat annoying, as to the ends of the screen and all the other people on the ride, like it is with Soarin.

    I think the crucial needs for that screen are to be ultra high definition and produce an incredible black to really portray the darkness of space.

    Hate the pre shows on FoP, They’re boring, lengthy and downright annoying. Hoping the pre shows for this are at least on par with Gringotts.

    All Pre-shows suck after x number of times. Even Guardians gets old and that is one of the best out there.

    That’s why you just make a great queue like Forbidden Journey. No proper boring pre show just a great immersive queue with pre show like elements.

    Pre-shows (especially ones on the longer side) also make getting on a ride quickly impossible. I’ve been at DVC events where FoP has a short wait, but it still takes a good 25-30 minutes to hike up the queue, stand through the preshows and then ride. I’ve been on FoP way less than I otherwise would because of this.

    Hopefully the preshows here are at least good with good acting. The dude in FoP is terrible and I can’t wait until the day Disney changes that pre-show video.

    this is the main thing. We had 5 free fast passes for animal kingdom , I wanted to use them all on FoP but that bloody 30 min queue and pre show even with fast pass is a right ballache. So we just went on it twice.

    I question anyone raving about the AT-ATs as “wow” or “how did they do that” moments—especially if they’re following the ride’s construction.

    They’re two static statues roughly the same height as Kong. The scale will be impressive, but that’s all they’ll have going for them.

    Being a Star Wars fan and seeing giant AT-AT in real life is exciting.... not sure how else to frame that.

    You walk under one at Star Tours.

    Not even sure their the same scale, if anything I’m almost positive the ones in Rise are bigger, plus you encounter them in literally the middle of a Star Wars battle that you’re a part of. I’m
    Not sure how that isn’t a cool moment

    Earthquake had the worst preshow of all time for re-rideability.

    It is the cursed site. Should have been used for a very dark potter that bent your brain.

    Earthquake's preshows were WAY better than whatever is passing for preshows in F&F.

    Of course, Disaster's set the benchmark for that plot of land.
