  • [Question] Space Mountain Refurb

    It has been a while since I have been on Micechat, but I just found out that Space Mountain is being refurbished. What exactly is being done to it? The length of the refurb is too short for a new track.

    From what we know so far, updated show elements, possibly an updated, interactive queue... we'll find out for sure what it all entails when it reopens in November.

      I heard they will be making the ride smoother, after the endless complaints about the roughness of the ride. Aside from that, it's all pretty hush hush.

        I loved the whiplash the ride caused. :P

          The ride definitely needs to be smoother. It felt like it was falling apart the last time I was at WDW in 12/2007.

              That was my thoughts a well on my last visit. I refused to ride it a 2nd time with my friends, and will never ride it again at WDW until it is upgraded.

                According to insiders in other locations, the entire track is being replaced, but not all of the track supports. So its not a total track and support replacement like DL got.

                There are no plans for onboard audio currently, however supposedly the track is being designed so that it can handle the weight should they decide to add it in the future.

                    It's being replaced by "darkland" indoor meet and greet :-)

                      ok, then I won't mention the possibility of the high school musical 3 soundtrack being used

                            When is it supposed to reopen in November exactly??? I may just postpone my first trip down there with my nephew down there until then...I want him to be able to experience the most there...
                            The test of success is not what you do when you are on top. Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.
