A New Star Wars Ride Includes a Parody of TSA Security Checkpoints

Disney's Star Tours Star Wars simulator ride has gone through a renovation and has re-opened...with a parody of TSA checkpoints. It makes waiting in line a lot more enjoyable as Jedis are walking by, luggage is being sorted and Droids are yelling at you.

Specifically:

The second room of the queue is now a security check area, similar to a TSA checkpoint. The two G-series droids are still there, G2-9T scanning luggage and G2-4T scanning passengers...

While we won't tell you why, you'll enjoy paying a lot of attention to what the scans of the luggage show is inside. When it's your turn to go through the passenger scan (a thermal body scan), you may be verbally accosted by a security droid. Also, keep an eye out in the queue for an earlier version of RX-24 ("Captain Rex") from the original Star Tours; he's labeled "defective" and has some familiar dialogue.

As most of us are forced to deal with the TSA when we travel, it's pretty funny to see Disney mocking them through imitation. [Schneier via BoingBoing]
