Location: Tokyo Disneyland, Japan
Client: Walt Disney Company
The Star Tours ride in Tokyo Disneyland contains six simulators and guests exit the ride 30ft. above ground. A bridge was designed to move people away from the entry below and filter guests to other areas of the park. The theme and function of the development was based on a back-story suggesting an alien intelligence that had crashed on this site and constructed a base from parts of the damaged space ship to communicate with its home planet. The feature tower represents this communication center and creates a light show at night to entertain guests.
