The original Star Tours has a place in the heart of many Star Wars fans — although following its revamp back in 2011, it’s now impossible to experience Disney’s first foray into the world of Star Wars rides in person. At least this amazing fan-made project lets you rekindle a few of those memories.
Part of a series of experimental VR projects to recreate classic Disney park rides, Gregory Noacco has recently made his 4K recreation of the original Star Toursavailable as a 360-degree YouTube video, and it’s a delightful blast from the past.
Sure, as a simple video—even one you can pan around in like this—you can’t quite recapture the feeling of being flung across the galaxy far, far away by R2-D2 and RX-24 as you would have in the ride all those years ago. But it’s a real joy to go back and experience the original attraction otherwise, seeing all the sites and even the actual set dressing of the StarSpeeder lovingly recreated.
