Space Mountain Rumours

Space Mountain Lighting

... Managed to ride SpaceMountain 10times in succession during the period of two hours...i can tell you, the moon is not always awake... ;-)

... Even the moon was not working in Space Mountain!
REPORTED: Ian Grey, 16 Dec 1998

It was not lightened continuously.

Park looked pretty good, although there were some lights out - loads on Space mountain queue area, and a lot of neon was out in discovery. (U dont seen this kind of thing in the US)
The inside of SM looked a lot lighter than before, the moon is not right either. It seems way too bright, you can see the projection screen etc.

There is some additional ultraviolet spotlights in operation, which ensure that only two or three sections of the course are situated in complete darkness. I personally liked that very much - this way the ride makes more fun.
Then however the disappointment: the next Monday there was again the "old" lighting situation in the dome.

The light was too bright in the middle of 1998.

Isn't it possible that only the moon projection above in the dome leads to different lighting conditions? I observed the following: If the moon is projected, one can detect a whole quantity of details from down from the waiting tunnel. And a projection lasts between 20 and 30 seconds, thus possibly long enough to get the impression of a brighter interior lighting, if it occurs exactly when starting into the mountain ...

Space Mountain was has been re-illuminated!!! According to our opinion they have many more black lights (one could see many more in the mountain than otherwise) and there are some more asteroids hanging there, too!
