  • The Space Mountain RANGE should follow Tron

    I've been on all the Space Mountains except for Hong Kong's, and I don't think any of them are that great today, though I loved WDW's when I was a kid in the 1970s ("RCAaaaa leads the waaaaaay!")

    After the Florida Tron clone finally opens, WDW's Space Mountain should shut down and be replaced with a much, MUCH larger Space Mountain Range containing multiple rides, including one gentler, weirder one for the whole family. (There is room to dramatically expand this attraction at WDW.)

    Maybe the "whole family" ride could visit the Andromeda Galaxy (getting there could be the longest fastest part) & this could be an educational attraction like Disneyland's old Adventures Though InnerSpace ride. With a slower, long train for the whole family and multiple other rides, Disney could of course dramatically increase the # of people who could experience some forms of Space Mtn. per hour. Something this cool & costly probably wouldn't come till after Chapek is gone.

    Yes, I think I've suggested this before on Micechat -- sorry if I've done so in the last couple of years!

    It's been 15 months since I shared this. Still no part-time employment offer from Disney Imagineering, nor even a free churro.

      What do you mean, "We can't use theme park ideas solicited by Disneyland fans in chat forums?" What's he gonna do, sue us? Besides, he's an ex-employee, we own every creative idea he comes up with for the rest of his life! Now get your butts in gear and put our imaginationeers on it before Universal comes up with their own Andromeda Galaxy ride, or the only Space will be where you used to park your cars on the lot.

      What do you mean, "We estimate $813 million for Space Mountain Range?!" Our Yields can't cover a tenth of that! Why are you people chasing fanboy ideas in the first place?! Now get your butts in gear and email me an estimate of how much money we'll save by shutting down the Mountain for a two-year "Extended Maintenance" (consisting of a new paint job -- one coat only, no primer), or the only Space will be where you used to park your cars on the lot.

        I like the idea of a "family friendly" version. The closest we all get as a family is the ride through on the PeopleMover.
