    Technically, not true. If the track is the same, the loading area will be the same, except that it will be remodeled probably. The old look had that ship hanging from the ceiling that looked like the Discovery from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    It would be neat if they could project, on one of the walls, a moving image of a black hole - paying homage to their movie The Black Hole. That would be a neat effect.

    Yes it MIGHT one know 100% just yet. Matt Ouimet wants it open by July 17. However, it must go through months of testing before it can open. When it does open it will be first to open to WDI. Then after that it will open to Disneyland Resort Cast Members. Yes Finally it will open to Annual Passholders. Yeah open to the public.

    Update: A set of Rockets came in yesterday. Color scheme is gray and orange lining. They now have 4 sets of rockets now inside the mountain.

    I'll volunteer to be a test dummy.

    Like most other people, I need a Space Mountain fix. I'm just excited to know that it's going to be reopened this summer.

    I don't think I ever heard any music when I've been on it. I'm looking forward to music, the last time I rode it, it was a roller coaster in the dark. The music and effects should change that.

    I can't wait to see what changes have been made.

    I will pay $20.00 to be a test dummy..... (I ridden the beast once back in 98... was the best ride in TL... I want to experance it again....)

    So no news on the music yet....

    The real SM 2

    Let me dispel a few incorrect ideas and/or rumors.
    1. The lifts are the same types of lifts as the original. In fact the largest of the lifts (lift B) is the same EXACT lift. This is one of the few pieces of original track remaining. The replaced track uses new technologies to make a stronger and smoother ride. The new track has a "dampening" feature that eliminates vibration and therefore give the rider a smoother ride.
    2. The new Space Mountain in essence is the same ride layout. There are a few minor changes to accommodate the adjustments that needed to be made for structural reasons (e.g. lower drops in the lowest parts of the ride prior to the exit tunnel) but all-in-all the same layout.
    3. The "multiple tracks" theory is just that. The ride has always, and will continue to turn to the right out of the load/unload area. The track that turns to the left is a short track into a maintenance bay. Now the load/unload area will have a new feature. A moving "special needs" track segment that will allow for the boarding of slower passengers while the normal ride departures continue in a "bypass" manner.

    I hope this helps

    You could hear danny elfman's score to charlie and the chocolote Factory on it.. LOL

    "willie wionka....willie wionka......." It would be worse than IASW... LOL

    (Though danny elfman is a good choice for this... the day time is a dark and mysterious...)

    True, it does. I don't know, I suppose it's a personal opinion that I feel Williams can evoke the most emotion overall...kinda hits your inner being so to speak.

    Elman is alright, but he has a little dark quality to scores...not sure if it's right for DL, in my opinion.
