  • Video Space Mountain - Lights On

    New member to the forum. Hello!

    So my family and I have been die hard Disney park goers forever and yesterday it finally happened. Space Mountain broke down while we were riding it! We sat for about 15 min before we got 'unstuck' but we got to see AND ride it with the lights on.

    I posted the video on youtube if anyone is interested in watching it. : )

    I have always wanted to get stuck on Space Mountain, I got close with about 20 people left in front of me in line when it broke down once.



    Here is a video of the whole ride with the lights on (front seat). Including lift hills.

          I've seen several lights on videos of Space Mountain and this is by far the best. The interior reminds me a little of the engine room of the Queen Mary.

                That's the infamous loop. Didn't you feel it when you went upside down in there?

                  LMBO! Srsly tho, didn't they hold the fans that blow in your face as you whiz by in the dark? Ya know, to make the ride seem faster... or was I mislead on that???

                  Anyway, Welcome Tripdaddy, best first post ever!!! ...and not to mention best lights-on Space vid on youtube!

                  It is my dream to get stuck as close to the top as possible (after the third lift) to ride with the lights on, and to re-ride the "right" way just after that.
                  Thx for this very cool post!!!

                  Oh... I meant to ask... why does this still happen relatively often? The access transfer track and access loading platform should prevent it from being "transfer riders" as the cause. So what gives? A slower person in the SB line?

                    That was an awesome video. I've seen video with the lights on before, but I hadn't seen video of the ride vehicles stopped, and how the cast members get them moving again. Thank you very much for posting, I really appreciate it!
                    As nice as the other parks are, we must always remember that it all began at Disneyland. Disneyland should be the crown jewel in the Disney crown.

                      What a great video Tripdaddy! I've watched a lot of Space w/ lights on youtube but your video is the best version I have seen so far.:thumbup: I've always been afraid of putting my hands too far above my head; it's great to know there's plenty of room without hitting my arms on the bars above. Thanks again for the cool video!

                          I believe they were for Rock'n Space Mountain.
