  • 2003's Big Thunder Death Trap overlay was better than Rockin' Space Mountain

    Space Mountain is ruined and I won't ride it again until May when they take this crap off. Firstly, and the worst of it, is that the music isn't synched with the ride at all. The original soundtrack and the new Michael Giacchino track are perfectly synched to every turn and drop. The RHCP track is horribly chopped up and doesn't fit with the ride at all. On top of that, the lighting reveals the track and support structure completely destroying any sense of speed the original version of the ride had. The pitch black starfield effect makes you think the ride is going twice as fast as it actually is and with the lights on and being able to see the track that's ruined. It's crap.

    John Hench is spinning in his grave, the "Show" of Space Mountain has been completely and totally destroyed by revealing the track. Sure it's cool to ride it seeing the track...once. But everytime ruins the intended "Show" effect of Space Mountain.

    This ride photo perfectly describes the effect this crap upgrade gives:


    Califonia Screamin' on the other hand is actually better with Around the World playing. The edited track really fits the ride very very well and the energy of the song is perfect. The only flaw is that the edited track loses its synch with the ride with the drop right after the loop, but that is something easily fixed with a re-edit of the track if they decide to do this again next year (it's doubtful though due to the overwhelmingly negative response to Space).
