  • Video Can you tell the difference between the two rides?

    I recently got to ride Space with the lights on, and while riding I must say it is terrible ride. In matter of fact with the lights on I actually prefer Goofys sky school. Heres the challenge can you tell the difference? Now who has better theming?

      The darkness IS the theming. It's comparing apples and oranges. It's like saying here's Goofy's SS without the cutouts, which has better theming?

        Exactly!

          Yup.

          Space wasn't meant to be seen with the lights on.
          If you walked through a haunted house with the lights on you'd be disappointed too.
          It's all about illusion. If they wanted you to see SM with the lights on, they would have done the ride so much differently.

              Couldn't have said it better myself

              And beside Space Mountain is original, where as GSS is just a Wild Mouse ride with goofy overlayed over him

                To be more precise:

                APPLES ORANGES
                GROWN ON FRUIT TREE Yes Yes
                COLOR OF FRUIT Depends on variety Orange
                FRUIT SKIN TEXTURE smooth knobby
                VISIBLE SEEDS IN FRUIT Yes Depends on variety
                MEAN CIRCUMFERENCE OF FRUIT (cm) 25.6 24.4
                MEAN DIAMETER OF FRUIT (cm) 7.9 7.6
                MEAN WEIGHT OF FRUIT (g) 340 357
                CAN BE EATEN Yes Yes
                SWEETNESS 2+ 2+
                FIBER IN A LARGE FRUIT (g) 4.5 2.4
                CAN BE JUICED Yes Yes
                CALORIES (per 8 oz. serving juice) 117 112
                POTASSIUM (mg, per 8 oz. serving juice) 295 496
                VITAMIN C (mg, per 8 oz. serving juice) 103 124
                FOLATE (mcg, per 8 oz. serving juice) 0 74


                So what are we comparing again? Oh yeah its Space Mountain with maintenance lights on to Goofy's Sky School up and running normally. That's more like comparing the Titanic to a submarine. They both went underwater but not for the same reason.
                Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

                  I'm kinda blown away by how rediculously simple a ride SM is withought the music and darkness/stars. I feel almost ripped off lol

                    A better comparison would be between Space Mountain with normal show elements vs. ANY ride with a blindfold on.

                      That's why I don't raise my arms up on SM. I'm afraid of getting hit by a support.

                        With the lights on, SM has sort of an unintentional backup theme. In regular mode, it's zooming-through-space sci-fi, and with the lights on it's more gritty-industrial-dystopia sci-fi.

                          Heeeeeeyyyy! Watcha go and do that for? Trying to ruin the Disney (non-lit) magic for us?

                          Of course, I had the choice to not watch...but, as they say...Curiosity killed the cat.

                              Try riding it with EVERYTHING turned off. Lights, star effects (basically the disco balls), effects, everything... it is very creepy.
