    It should like The Mummy or Everest

    Space Mountain is just pure genius. I don't think there's any other way to put it. Everything in the ride is classic Imagineering at its best, in my opinion.

    The whole experience really helped contribute to the final effect in Ghost Galaxy.

    For sure. And the music builds quite dramatically going through those turns, with the effect in question being scored by big perfect fifths. That really increases the effectiveness.

    Yeah, it's awesome. And I think it's helped even more by the violent tight turns at the end of the ride.

Couple that with the blinding flash, and you've got yourself a great end to a great ride!
    Couldn't have said it better myself!

    I love the end of the ride, too! I can't really describe the feeling, but its sort of like a mix of a drop, going backwards, and spinning.

    I love this part of the ride. It's a beautifully disorienting effect that is elegantly simple

    Even the "view screen" above the station works well if you concentrate hard enough on it. I've gotten the whole room to spin before, it was pretty disorienting!

    The effect that sometimes gets me is the long 'up' tunnel with the whirlpool lights at the end. If you stare at them and tilt your head, it feels like the whole ride is tilting to that side. I can't look at them at all!

    Yes- Great simple effect that gets overlooked but, as Datameister says, it's a great end. I don't know if I've ever felt the wind, but I definitely have been concious of the effect. It makes the turn-around to the station much more dramatic as well.

    The flash at the end blinds you; then the lights at the end go forwards, making seem as though you're going backwards. I know how you feel, It weirds me out everytime haha. And then all of the sudden you realize you're going forwards into the station.

    I have never felt that but my family has felt that before and they thought it went backwards too.

    Space Mountain backwards & Air System

    ok, at the end of DLR's Space Mountain, who think that it feels like it's going backwards. I know for sure it doesn't go backwards but who FEELS like it does.

    I think it's the lighting or the VERY strong air conditioning system makes it feel backwards.(I know for sure throughout the whole entire ride they have the conditioning air system.) So all that fast wind on the ride is not real.
