The extra little little touches made it double awesome. Stepping on the stick, the Wilhelm scream, and the reflection of the light saber in the water put it over the top.

The ewoks were perfect.

Also I want to play with one of those water speeder bike things. That looks super fun.

Note that to use one of these, you have to hook them up to one of your spare jetskis.
