  • [Review] SPACE MOUNTAIN:GHOST GALAXY Pics, Videos and Reviews

    Hey Folks it appears that on a mission to search out new life forms in space, the rockets in Space Mountain have found that not all aliens come in peace.



    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTh1qPFLtjE"]YouTube - Disneyland Resort Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy Lift Hills[/ame]


    SPACE MOUNTAIN:GHOSTLY GALAXY is an all new (to Disneyland) Halloween overlay of the classic rollercoaster attraction in Tomorrowland. This Morning Micechatters flooded the resort to be among the first riders on the haunted space coaster and you can return to this thread for thoughts, reviews, pics and video as the day progresses.


    Warning signs all along the queue warn parents


    Here are pics of the line which, at this point, was 80 minutes.




    Speakers hidden on the old Peoplemover track for the evening effects on the dome.


    Nothing really different here

    But once inside the dome all bets are off. It really is something else. There are no stars floating around but Bob the Galaxy Ghost is there at every turn trying to get you. I can't TELL you how much I love this layover.


    At night the exterior of the dome becomes a changing canvas of colors and textures


    Bob begins to break out of the dome and it colapses


    Only to rebuild itself with green wireframe






    Bob attacks the dome

















    This morning at 9am the wait for the newly unveiled overlay peaked at 90 minutes and the crowds keep coming. Unless you are a die hard Space Fan you don't need to brave the bustling hordes of thrill seekers. Just stop back here throughout the day.

    Do you have thoughts, pics or video? Post them here!

              Just got back from the park. Loved it!!!! The line was all the way back to the orbitron when I got there about 9:15. The Effects were great. The soundtrack was awesome. The queue is pretty much the same. The only difference is some creepy drone sounds the video of the planet orbiting gets staticy and looses its signal and an aweful smell XD. The warp tunnel is pitch black which makes it Super creepy. Also loved the ending. Awesome overlay. 9/10

                It's good. The soundtrack was clearly done by someone who "gets" Halloween. I think this overlay will be returning for subsequent Halloweens.

                I'd like to see a couple more ghosts, but I suppose that would spoil the utter darkness thing (yes, it's even darker than usual in there). However, it would be awfully cool if they could figure out how to suspend a ghostly figure (in the same flamey orange) in the empty space the track goes around. But again, it'd have to be lit somehow, spoiling the darkness thing.

                Did I mention the soundtrack was really, really good?

                Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                  I remember a few months ago, myself included, saying how much we all dreaded the Halloween layover. From the reviews so far, it seems as if you just never know how bad or good something will be. I can't wait to ride this sometime in the future!

                      I am more excited to hear what people think of the projections on the exterior of Space Mountain tonight. I saw them being tested yesterday and they were more impressive than the interior of the attraction. There's supposed to be between 7 and 11 different 'mini-shows' every 8 minutes or so, so I'm afraid it will be a while before someone can video-tape all of them and get it on youtube!

                          I am going insane right now trying to figure out how I can get down there to see this! Friends, please let me know what the cheapest (near by) hotels are at this time of year!

                              There's really no pictures to post. All the changes are on-ride and none of the outside effects aren't going during the day. That said, it was pretty awesome. I loved the beginning and the ride being even darker than usual was nice, along with the swank music. Thankfully I was there at ropedrop and even with heading right over there it was a 35 minute wait.
