  • Peoplemover Track Visible!

    Earlier tonight as we were about to ride Rockin' Space Mountain, almandot realized that now that the lights are on, it should theoretically be possible to see the Peoplemover track inside the ride. We tried looking for it as we rode and we all thought we saw it but weren't entirely sure.

    Being the giant geeks we are, we knew there was in fact one way to tell exactly where the track should be... The Space Mountain model in the Opera House! And that's exactly where we went next on this quest. As we huddled over the model, studying it and baffling CM's and guests alike inside the Opera house, almandot devised his own way of figuring out where it was, but to me is was simply to your left in the middle of the 4th turn, or 2nd right turn.

    Even though it was already 11:30 pm, we knew we wouldn't be able to sleep unless we actually saw it for certain so we headed back, this time applying the knowledge we'd just attained. Lo and behold, we saw it! Clear as day! Twice nonetheless. It appears right to your left during said turn and actually can be seen again above you when you come all the way around (6th turn). As we arrived back to the loading area, apparently an imminent cascade prompted us back into the ride, so almandot and I did what any Micechatter would do. We pulled out our cameras!

    This is my attempt. You may have to look a bit, but it's right dead center.



    Interesting little tidbit. You might want to take a look for yourself before the Rockin' overlay is taken down.

    Now to find the Peoplemover track inside Astro Blasters...

    I tried as well but my camera was out of battery so it involved me turning it on and snapping a photo asap at the very last second to see if i could inch some more battery life out of it to get the picture off.




    *MY* way of knowing where it is... Okay so you do your final lift and count down.. 5..4..3..2.. 1.. rock and roll!!! and then you get going and make a very sharp left turn that gets your stomach rolling. This then leads up to your first right turn which is your cue to be ready. Straight ahead of you as you approach your 2nd right turn is the track. And you zoom to the right and go by it briefly. The track is very short and it juts into a diagonal wall very quickly to block out tunnel light from getting into the ride's show building.


    Ta da =D

    It was pretty fun sleuthing. It dawned on me to go looking for it while we were riding it and I thought I saw it but wasn't sure, so I suggested we march our way over to the Opera House since they have a wonderful model of the whole track layout for the old ride, peoplemover track noted and everything. It looked like about where I thought I saw it and we made our head notes about how to find it. I even started running around the Opera House lobby as if I were on the ride to demonstrate out loud how we'd be turning and where it would be along our path. =D Fortunately what few people that were in there had just gone into the movie and only a couple new folks got to see the idiot running around in circles

                  It's so sad that I'd be totally up for it if it meant getting a ride up there!

                    I know what you mean...


                    When we were looking for the track last night, we were talking about wanting to ride it again. Someone said that they didn't care how they brought it back, but they just wanted to be able to ride up there again...

                      Ok, it was so much fun geeking out about this! :lol: Sadako's 4th turn! 4th turn! and Almandot's dancing around the display... And then actually seeing it?
                      So. freaking. EXCITING. :geek:
                      Good morning, son
                      In twenty years from now
                      Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                      And I can tell you 'bout today
                      And how I picked you up and everything changed
                      It was pain
                      Sunny days and rain
                      I knew you'd feel the same things...

                        I don't think you'd be able to see anything on the PM Track since all the windows are blocked by roll-down covers. Hopefully they'll open them up someday!

                              Not much in the pictures. Like we said they were rush attempts. In lieu of us going back and getting more(which sadako might very well be doing heh), someone else could get some. Next time I go I'll actually have my video camera and snatch the thing on nightvision.
