  • Space Mountain Memories

    What memories do you have of Space Mountain?


    One of the memories I have of Space Mountain is always seeing that robot with the blue cap to the left of the loading area, he would always lift up his blue cap as a form of saing hello.

    I remember when Space Mountain really rocked, before the stupid Fedex crap (including the package scanner robot), and before the Dick Dale silliness that led to the ride's ultimate demise...

      But it also lead to the rides awsome re-hab .

      I remember eating at pizza port staring up at the line and telling my family to hurry and finish their pizza, because I wanted to run up to space mountain before the line got to long.
      I also remember teh big octogon sun thing... *scratches head*

        I remember those stupid films you saw in the queue with the "spacey" uniforms. Ugh. Oh, the cheesiness.

Somebody let me come through, I'll always be there as frightened as you, to help us survive being alive."

            I liked the music and thought it made the ride seem faster. The first lift especially.

              My fondest was getting a ride on it on the last day of operation. Nobody knew at the time it was the last day of operation, so when I heard I was of course sad. But then happy that I was one of the last people to ever ride the old version.

              I miss SM ... Can't wait for it to reopen.

                When did Fed Ex become the sponsor and did it change anything at all to the ride?

                    I had a similar experience. I was maybe 7 or 8, and for as long as I could remember my brother and his friend always talked about how fast it went and how scary it was. So my mom took us for our birthdays, and we got in line, and I was freaking out. Just freaking out! I was so scared to go on it, and I cried the whole line long, and once I got on, I loved it and wanted to go over and over again.

                      I have no memories, i've never been on it yet. I still can't believe it, i've been going to Disneyland since 1987 too.

                        I don't remember whether it was a rainy day or what, but for some reason the park was not very full one day about 10 years ago. My ex would not ride Space Mountain (or any other coaster.) There was NO LINE for Space Mountain! I have never seen this before... so I went on by myself, kept going back around and rode the darn thing FIVE TIMES IN A ROW! I would have kept going but my ex was getting tired of just standing around waiting... and probably rightly so. I'll never forget that day.

                          I remember those awsome commericals they used to play in the queue:

                          "This is the Galactic News Network. You give us 20 million nanoseconds and we'll give you the GALAXY."

                              I barely remember anything about it, except standing on the second level in the queue in the hot hot hot summer sun. And how nice it was once you got inside. And there was a little robot scanning packages.

                                I remember the first time going on the ride on my first visit to Disneyland when I was, I think, 7 or 8. I recall the line being huge, most of the outside switchback queue being used, and to the escalator... it seemed to take forever. We finally got inside and I was looking longingly through the viewing window, and then we entered the loading area which seemed massive. I was in awe of the entire park, but this and Pirates really seem to stand out.

                                Another memory, and I can't remember if it was the same trip or a later one, we went to Space Mountain during a parade and found the line almost empty. We got on it about 5 times in a half hour or so, which was a real treat after the long lines we were used to.

                                More recently, and I know this is the DLR forum, but my sister and I rode Space Mountain at WDW this past October just as the park was closing. When we got off the CM working the entry had closed it off, so we thought we were done for the night, but he let one last group through and we managed to get in with them. My sister and I were the very last people to get on Space Mountain that night, and as it worked out, we got our own train of cars also since the one in front of us filled up with just the two of us remaining. It was almost creepy standing in the large loading room there all by ourselves with just the two CMs. The last people on the other track were loaded at just about the same time as we were climbing up the hill right beside them, and we cheered to each other knowing we were lucky enough to get in just one last ride.

                                  Heck yes! When I was little my mom and I would do the early entrance and basically just get our Space fix for the day.

                                    I remember it before it had the cheesy "newscast" crap and the soundtrack. I liked how it had a creepy feel to it... When they added all that extra crap, it was like they were trying to make it too 'happy, peppy, and bursting with joy'.

                                    This thread makes me wonder about the ages of MiceChat members... LOL I feel OLD.

                                      i was at the disney warehouse yesterday and they were playing the music to space mountain. It really made me miss the ride. I always thought that the music made the ride more enjoyable for me
