GoEuro.com, the search engine for comparing and booking flights, coach and rail travel across Europe, may not be able to take you to a galaxy far, far away, but the team partnered with GetYourGuide to rank the out-of-this-world locations used throughout the Star Wars franchise, including those for the highly anticipated Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
Taking the top spot as the top Star Wars experience is Legoland. The company features life sized wing fighters and movie characters and is the first introduction to the franchise for many children.
The top five Star Wars experiences include:
Lars Homestead and Tatooine Desert Scenes, Tunisia
Rancho Obi Wan, USA
The exterior of Lars Homestead, Tunisia
Madam Tussauds’ Star Wars Exhibits, United Kingdom and Germany
Although GoEuro may not know what the locations from the new film will represent in the Star Wars universe, Jason Ward from MakingStarWars.net and Crummy Gummy, Jeremy from FuriousFanBoys.com and Sander De Lange and Tim Veekhovem (Content Creators at StarWars.com) put together their predictions as to what each new location may be used for.
To work out the position of the 31 sites and experiences, GoEuro combined the scores for accessibility, accommodation and amenities (each worth 10%) with the Strength of the Force (worth 70%) to work out the overall score.
The Strength of the Force rates how much a fan will feel the presence of Star Wars at a specified location.
