View Full Version : Re-furbished Space Mountain sneak preview

The Disney Parks Blog (http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2009/11/walt-disney-world%E2%80%99s-classic-space-mountain-attraction-to-reopen-with-a-few-surprises/) has just posted a couple of sneak preview pics and some information about the new Space Mountain queue area.

With the update, the storyline is being extended – and you’ll be able to take part.

Passengers will be able to immerse themselves in unique game play as they prepare for blast off, becoming part of the space station adventure. During a recent walkthrough, we deflected asteroids to keep runways clear as part of the story.

The interactive experiences are based on duties you’d find on board a long-traveling space craft, according to Walt Disney Imagineering Senior Show Designer Alex Wright. Each game lasts about 90 seconds with a 90-second interval and the games can accommodate 86 players at one time.

It's not a ride we do as we're both thrill ride wimps but sounds like it could be fun.

My DD is scared of this one. Fine on RocknRoller but needs to be side by side with me or DH.

Was hoping they might have changed that


But thanks for posting :)
