Space Mountain?

Hey everyone quick question,
When I was in Disney during the summer Space Mountain was closed. I think it was supposed to reopen in November and I just remembered it a few days ago. Has anyone been on it since it reopened. If you did what is it like?
Thanks!

Mom and I were going to ride it our last trip (a couple days after it opened), but they had someone yelling that the ride was having problems and to come back later. We never rode it.

I heard about this. I wouldn't really know since I haven't been to WDW in around 2 years. I'm sure there are videos or pictures somewhere.

There was not hardly any change to the ride, most of the changes were in the line areas with new displays. They removed the glow in the dark stripes on the cars and they say it is darker inside. Did not seem like they ride changed at all.

I hope they made the ride cars larger. They aren't exactly friendly to people over six foot tall.

Actually it was really the queue line that changed - no such more as the ride itself, I'll post pictures in 2 weeks from now of what it currently looks like. For now I'll post a few pics in the Park Picture thread before they reopened with the lights on.

The same way it was when it closed.

They just covered up the queue line so that you couldn't see the coaster, painted the walls pink and tealish, and added gates in the loading area.

Even though they promised a new track and a sound system.

Quote:

I went during Thanksgiving week.

The ride broke down once and the People Mover broke down at least 5 times.

I was on it one of the times, I saw three of the breakdowns from outside, and the other one was when I was on Space Mountain, and I actually saw the track while the ride was moving because the lights on the People Move track were on.

They also covered up the Space Mountain viewing windows on the People Move track.

So, they don't have a new track, they covered up the queue line, the walls are pink, there's no sound system, AND they had the guts to cover up the windows to be able to see the ride from the People Move!? I liked the ride better before it was changed.

But, they do have interactive games in the queue line.

However, I use Fastpasses, because i'd rather go on more rides in a theme park than play a video game.

It felt darker to me. Maybe it was because I was finally in the front for my first time haha.

Well, they said that they made it darker, and i'm sure that they did, but the People Mover broke down for the 5th time when I finally got on to Space Mountain, so the lights for the People Mover were on, which made Space Mountain look like it was brighter, which was why I was able to see the track.

The only that changed is the waiting line and the ride itself. In the lines, they added some games that lets you play a short game using three buttons, these are located near the loading dock area. In the ride itself, the ride is darker since they blocked off the loading dock rooms since that was the cause of the lighting earlier. Other than that, they also changed the sign of the ride in the front to a space/lime green type and they cleaned the exterior to make it more "whiter" (not really a difference).

They basically did nothing.

I still want that new track that they promised.

When I went in Dec. of 2008, I found the ride to be too bright. You could see the track, and therefore it wasn't as much fun. Can you still see the track? I would obviously still go on it, even if it wasn't fixed, but it would be more enjoyable.

If you read my posts above, then you'll find out why it was so bright.

Bump please.

I like expressing my raw emotion towards the disappointment that I had seen the new addition called "Space Mountain" with very emotional and deep feeling text that makes me feel good about myself and empties out all of the hate inside of my body towards this sadness.

I just made that entire speech for no reason.
