All of this is exactly how I felt! I had to keep looking at the wall for the buttons instead of watching the screen for the actual ride, which was frustrating, especially without knowing what those buttons were actually achieving. I did still enjoy the ride a lot and I was relieved at the fact that it didn't make me feel ill at all like Star Tours does.Agreed. When I was the engineer, I knew I needed to push the buttons when they lit up, but I really didn't know why I was pushing the buttons or what purpose it served. And since I was worried about hitting my buttons, I didn't watch the screen enough to see what was going on. It kind of took away from my enjoyment of the ride. It makes it more interactive than Star Tours though, so I enjoy it a lot more.
To chime in about motion sickness, I won't hardly go on Star Tours anymore, I end up feeling too sick from it. I didn't have an issue with Smugglers Run, but I also probably wouldn't ride it more than once in a row. To me, the real joy of the ride is actually waiting inside the Falcon and seeing the inside. I'd kind of l like to just get in line to look around and not participate in the ride.
