    Ok, here goes:

    WDW - Opened in 1975, HUGE, 2 seperate tracks (think Matterhorn). One rocket has 2 attached cars with inline seating for six, built by WED/WDI.

    DLR - Opened in 1977, Much smaller than WDW, different design, built by Velkoma. One track, one rocket has 2 attached cars, side by side seating for 12.

    Tokyo - Exactly the same as the pre-2003 DL coaster, same plans, same builder, same experience (except not as dark, the Japanese don't seem to like things as dark, safety I guess).

    Paris - Radically different, one long train launched from outside the building. Built in 1995?

    Hong Kong - No data yet.

        Hong Kong is going to be Disneyland's version of Space Mountain. I believe essentially it will be the pre-rehab version

          As I understand it, Fla's is basically the matterhorn inside a building (thus the separate tracks and inline seating), Ca's has 2 cars with 3 rows of 2 each seating and one track (because we can't have 2 matterhorns, ya know?), Paris' is a totally different ride with a loop, and according to previous posters Tokyo's is Ca's.

          Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

            WDW SM is nothing like the Matterhorn. Only similarities are that they both have two intertwining tracks. Completely different layouts though

              HKDL's SM will be DL's SM post-rehab

                I'm not trying to hijack the thread or anything, but why does DL's BTMRR seem so much better than MK?

                  WDW's version is wayyyyyy better than DL's version

                  however, DL's version of Space mountain is far better than WDW's

                        I think Tokyo's is just as dark as Disneyland's. But it didn't have the music.

                        Hmm, I guess that means it was just like Disneyland...

                          I don't know I've heard the effects sets might be slightly different and I'm not sure that HK will be getting the rockets durring the day rocks durring the night dealy

                            I think that depends on your opinion

                            Disneyland has the shortest Big Thunder and generaly Big Thunder has gotten biger and better with each new design

                            Disneylands = Origional

                            WDW = slightly modified slightly longer but very similar to the origional

                            Tokyo = longer then WDW's/more thrilling out of control styled design

                            Paris = Longest/set on it's own freaking Island goes under the lake and is supposedly uber thrilling


                            that's just how they're reviewed at least

                              Haven't been to paris, but my preferences:

                              SPACE MOUNTAIN:
                              1) Tokyo (like that it's disneyland's pre-rehab but blue flames...neat)
                              2) Disneyland (pre rehab) / WDW (cool)

                              THUNDER:
                              1) Tokyo (MUCH better)
                              2) Disneyland (just classic)
                              3) WDW (IMO feels lamer then Disneyland's, don't know why)
