One word: WOW! I was BLOWN AWAY by the revamped Space Mountain. I was never on the original Disneyland Space Mountain, but I have been on the Orlando version many-a-times. Again: WOW! Everything is superb; the soundtrack, theming, intensity, layout. I have been on coasters that go over 80 MPH. I felt like I was going 150 MPH on Space Mountain. It was one of the most amazing theme park experiences of my life. Flying through the stars at breakneck speeds, quick smooth unexpected turns, incredible star efx and a synched sound track put this ride in a class by itself. After going on Space Mountain, I had the same feeling when I rode Spiderman at IOA and X at SFMM: complete euphoria. Kudos Disney.

Absolutely Incredible. The special effects are jaw dropping, and the soundtrack is vey catchy. Do listen closely: NOT TO BE RIDDEN ON A FULL STOMACH.

The ride is completely boring. It maybe has one drop. All you do is turn, and go pretty slow throughout the ride. I dont know how it was before, but it was probably better. If you like this one, you probably hate the one at the Magic Kingdom because they are COMPLETELY different.

This ride is very dissapointing. From the moment you enter the attraction, its sad and anti- climatic all the way. First of all, the wait time is horrendous. Once you board your rocket, you go up a boring lift with the stairs clearly visible just a foot from you, which ruins the theming of space travel. Then, you reach the top and expecting a drop, you just slowly coast around a turn and begin making a series of right turns which get repetitve and unthrilling, especially since you are travelling at a slow speed. The stars look like they were made by those little projectors you find in baby nurseries that light up the cieling with moon shapes and stars. If you look carefully, you can clearly make out all the beams and bars around you. The music is annoying which sounds a lot like the theme song from "The Incredibles," (granted its the same composer). Th original Dick Dale music added in the mid- nineties was much more exciting and fun. Overall, this is merely a tame kid coaster in an barely dark setting set to bad music and long lines. It may have been good in its time, in the seveties, but by todays standards, youre better off saving your time and just go ride Splash Mountain, Pirates, or cross over to California Adventure and ride California Screamin for a real coaster more suited for today.

The highly anticipated all new Space Mountain is here. How is it? Well, as you can see, I gave it a 10, so it must be good. However, I would have given the old Space Mountain a 10 as well. In all honesty, the new version is incredibly similar to the old one. The track layout, the trains, the speed and intensity were all pretty much exactly the same. I could have told you the precise manuevers that we were going to make before we made them. The space theming is I guess a little different, but then again, it is supposed to be space, so how different can it be? There are stars and swirling meteors and so on. The main difference came in the soundtrack and in the initial "launch" into space. The soundtrack had a more old-fashioned nostalgic aura about it, rather than the previous harder rocking music. This was especially true during the lift hill segments of the ride, which had a truly grandiose feel. The lighting and effects were also different, and admittedly an improvement, during the lift hill "launch" sequence. Despite the two year hiatus for not much of a difference, I can still speak very highly of the Space Mountain ride itself. The coaster rockets through the dark at a speed that feels much faster than it actually is, and you do noticeably pick up speed as the ride progresses. Wind blows in your face the whole time, there are a couple neat dips, but its the curves during the second half of the ride that really make Space Mountain so enjoyable. The train continuously careens around banked right turns, each seemingly tighter than the previous, until you finally speed through a left banked turn and return to earth with a blinding flash of light upon hitting the brake run. Space Mountain was my favorite Disneyland ride as a kid, until Indiana Jones opened ten years ago. I thought Space Mountain might reclaim the title with this new incarnation. It did not, but it does remain my second favorite ride at the park, and it should continue to please the masses as it has for decades.

It is too much of a classic for a lower score than 9. Compared to newer rides, it may ot be as good, but as far as innovation and fun, then I give it my respect. A must ride just for its historic sake.
