    Slightly disappointed by this. And here I was thinking the track would change, just a bit, to be a tad scarier. But I AM excited for the new effects and total darkness... and if that music that was leaked last night is any is in it.. count me in!

    So ToT & Rockit Mountain...! Interesting... I wonder if the new music track will really be that different in terms of making the ride feel different.
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

        if it's the same flight path then how will they make the re-entry tunnel longer? that's what's been confusing me. if i'm correct the old re-entry tunnel took up that whole straight track at the end, so how is the tunnel longer now without redesigning some of the track?

          Nothing new in that story. We've been talking about that here for weeks.

              they made small modifications to make the re-entry tunnel longer...you only have to change a turn into that tunnel by a few degrees to make the tunnel longer, and that small modification does not affect the rest of the track...just that section and its connection to the station. They had been saying all along that the track would be largely identical, with only minor modifications...and that's exactly what we got.

                I don't see why this rehab which didnt even have a new track took 2+ years.

                  I'm not ready to nit-pick yet.... I'm just basking in the glory that will be re-opened Space Mountain. I can't wait to see the new changes, no matter how minute they are. After years of watching DL turn to decay, I'll take whatever improvements I can get!

                    it does have a new track. The entire queue was redone, the old track and ride elements were removed and the new track was built with new ride effects and the entire building had to be rethemed. It was a lot of work--the only thing that remains of the old version is the actual dome. The new track just happens to have a very similar layout to the old one.

                    I'm impressed that they will have the stars in the dome exactly as they are in the night sky, thanks to the Hubble telescope. Very nice touch. It's the best planetarium on the planet

                        Sure, its a new track... the old track was well.. just that- old. Nevertheless, its the SAME EXACT track layout. Its not similar, its the same.

                          Well it takes a while, they painted the roof, re-layed a new track, new affects, new lighting, new electric stuff, new everything... these things take time

                            I haven't ridden SM in so long that I think I'm over-romanticizing it out of nostalgia. w00t!

                              No, it's not the same. There are some small variations, such as the production of a longer re-entry tunnel. Thus, the track layout is similar, not the same.

                                It also took so long because they had to:

                                1) Get the equipment for dismantling the ride inside the building.
                                2) Put such equipment together
                                3) Dismantle the track from inside the building.
                                4) Remove the pieces
                                5) Bring in the new pieces
                                6) Assemble the new track pieces
                                7) Dismantle the equipment
                                8) Remove the equipment

                                The extra long time is due to being confined within a closed building. A lot harder to do than when you have the endless height of open sky to work with.

                                  Agreed! It's really old information!

                                    The track is not identical to the old one. There have been a few adjustments, from what I understand the new track sits higher than the old one so your extremly close to the ceiling now and of course the reentry tunnel is longer. Nothing major but a few very slight changes have been made.

                                      I only hope the slight differences don't include eliminating the nice floater air on the upswings, and the wild g's on the turns. I just have a bad feeling this being in DL, they may have decided to slightly modify the banking and upswings for a more smoother forceless family friendlier version.

                                        Even though it's been a real downer to go to Disneyland for over two years and not ride SM, I'm glad they're taking time to fix it.

                                        I don't know how many of you know, but the old wooden track was dangerous. The bolts got rusty and would fall out (I'm sure the night crew was very diligent but still). I'm not sure what year it was, but because of faulty bolts, a SM vehicle flew off of the track. I saw it on the news. I was scared out of my mind because a friend of mine had gone to the park that day 0_0
