    Personally, I would've waited until tomorrow, once we've had the chance to go on it, to start this thread, but that's just me.

          Some may have ridden the HKDL version, though!

              I was reffering to the CM's that have had the opportunity thus far to ride it, and then tomorrow all the rest would be able to post... sorry if that was a mistake

                I heard the Hong Kong Disneyland version is different, actually.

                And it seems like the poster was talking to the Cast Members who got to go early today. There are a lot of Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy threads like this though! I'm just as interested in Haunted Mansion Holiday. Someone pointed out in the DL tracking thread its supposedly gonna have new surprises and ways to celebrate the 40th! However, we'll be too busy with the Ghost Galaxy threads to notice! :ap:

                  Ah... if this needs to be merged go right ahead. Sorry!
                  Interesting about the HMH... I haven't heard about that. What about it would be changed?

                    OK I just got off the ride... (cast member preview) It is VERY WELL done given that it is just an overlay for Halloween...

                    I don't know if the queue changed any except for the addition of the signs warning that this is not the "old space mountain" The station's lighting looked the same to me. But the ride is way darker (read the stars are much dimmer) and certain portions are in the pitch dark.

                    Lift 1: New lighting colors and a few effects

                    Tunnel between lift 1 and 2: Pitch Dark

                    Lift 2: New Video sequence that is somewhat scary with the Ghost appearing at the top of the lift and shooting sparks down the lift tunnel

                    Lift 3: New Projection of Ghost

                    Course: Several effect that include chasing projections that match the rockets speed, projections of ghost's claws that reach for rocket on several occasions random eyeballs and a very cool ending effect that I am not going to spoil.

                    Sound effects of the ghost growl really push the rocket's sound system to the max (lots of base) causing the feeling that the ghost is shaking the sled during the third lift hill.

                    This is a MUST ride addition to the Holiday lineup.... Well worth any wait.

                    VERY GOOD RIDE!!! all of us were cheering when the rockets returned to the station.

                    I have to say that ultimately Ghost Galaxy is better than the regular Space Mountain... The ride seems longer (it wasn't actually any longer) and seemed to be a "better ride for the wait" because of this.

                        Re: Which Do You Prefer- Ghost Galaxy or Regular?

                        I think I prefer it to the regular SM as well. Mostly because it feels like less of a roller coaster in the dark with the added effects. I love Space Mountain as much as the next person, but there are no effects during the roller coaster portion of the ride. The overlay has effects. Therefore I like it better. I don't want it permanently, but I would love to have it every year like Haunted Mansion Holiday.

                        Hopefully the overlay will be successful and it will inspire Imagineers to add some more effects to the original Space Mountain.

                          I haven't been on it, but no matter what, I think it's fine the way it is, seasonally. I mean, I love Haunted Mansion Holiday, but I think the seasonal overlays are a part of what makes them special. If you go on Ghost Galaxy in march, or HMH in the middle of Summer, it may take away from the magic. Also, it won't be very special anymore. Don't get me wrong, I go to Disneyland all the time, and go on the same rides, they're always just as special, but when something is meant to be seasonal, I think it should stay that way.

                            same here
                            how is one going to know what they like when the Ghost Galaxy isn't opened yet.

                            I would think for Halloween it would be fun, knowing that it goes back to it's regular version in November

                              not to get picky,
                              but the CM part wasn't added until later in the thread
                              so those who mentioned Friday and waiting (myself included) were commenting on the original post.

                              I know CM's do post on here, just curious how many CM's that would do a preview (if offered) are actual MC's. I know two cast members that we ran into, one wasn't on MC and the other hadn't been on for awhile.

                                Is the soundtrack the same, or did they record something new?

                                    They had an original track for HKDL's Ghost Galaxy, so I assume it would be that one.

                                      It's reworked a little bit but yeah, it's the HKDL soundtrack.

                                        I got to go on Ghost galaxy yesterday during CM previews and I absolutely LOVED it....But of course I'm a little twisted that way. I love it as an overlay and wouldn't want it year round because I love old Space as well. The Ghost Galaxy overlay was absolutely amazing but really scary for young ones (but I wouldn't want it any other way). I love the fact that I can have both versions. Ghost Galaxy during Halloween Time and my old Space during regular time. I will be riding Ghost Galaxy as many times as I can throughout Halloween Time!!!!!!!
