Force or Forced: We rate the park’s new “Star Wars” tie‑ins on a coolness scale

IMG_0705Hyperspace Mountain ★★★★★

Enjoy the classic high‑speed coaster with some fun “Star Wars” effects thrown in to spice things up.

Star Tours ★★★★☆
The ride gets updated with a scene from the new film, and a cameo by BB-8.

Jedi Training ★★★★☆
Kids between the ages of 4 and 12 get a chance to wield light sabers and fight Darth Vader.

Stormtroopers ★★★☆☆
It’s just plain fun (and a little startling) to see these characters roaming Tomorrowland with blaster rifles.

Star Wars Launch Bay ★★★☆☆
The replicas of props and costumes in this exhibit are dull, but it’s a must for guests interested in meet‑and‑greets with the likes of Chewbacca and Kylo Ren.

Themed Food ★★☆☆☆
The Galactic Grill and Pizza Port offer hit‑and‑miss dishes with names such as the Cheese-3PO Burger. We recommend the Darth By Chocolate dessert.

Star Wars: Path of the Jedi ★☆☆☆☆
The short film recaps the first six movies with clips from “The Force Awakens.” Fine for die‑hard fans in need of an air‑conditioned sit‑down.
