OK, for all you naysayers on DL's Space Mountain being launched

Straight from the Disneyland website.

- Enter the Space Port and buckle up for a hyper-speed adventure through an even more thrilling Space Mountain!
- Hurtle through the cosmos, past fields of shooting stars, celestial satellites, and awesome new special effects!
- Take a heart-pounding flight through the mysterious outer galaxy of this "re-launched" Disneyland park favorite!

Get ready to have a blast!

If that's not the most obvious hint ever. Quotes around "re-launched".

Makes me excited for Nov 2005.

...and you don't think, perhaps, that a ride with spacecraft lends itself to the use of words like "launch"?

I can't think of terrificly many spacecraft that aren't launched.

LOL Maddie, too true!

bill, remembering when Jeff *re-launched* the website...as far as I can recall, it wasn't LIM, LSM, pneumatics, or hydraulics, but it WAS launched nonetheless...;)

It very well MAY be that Disney is going to *propel* the new Space Mountain, but I wouldn't necessarily count on it...

Space Mountain is brought to you by Propel Fitness Water....and the letter "D". ;)

I think the "new" Space Mountain is launched, would make more sense considering the words they used and the one in paris is launched as well, otherwise whats the big hype about if its just a new layout?

All indications point to the new Space Mountain NOT being launched. I hope those indications are wrong but I'm not going to be the one holding my breath in anticipation. The "hype" will be a more reliable soundtrack and much better special effects.

Wow... anyone that says that Space Mountain will have a launch should be shot. First of all, it will NOT be launched. I can 100% COMFIRM that.

WOW>>.>>>I didn't realize that if I were to voice my opinion on whether it will be launched or not that I might be shot!

Maybe you can 100% confirm that, but to wish people should be shot just for putting their 2 cents and wishes on the board?? Geez.............

It's a figure of speech... duh. If you think DL's Space Mountain will have a launch, you deserve to be shot. My point is that it's been known for MONTHS that there will be no launch.

Only if you're in the loop. There hasn't been any official announcements on anything, so I'd appreciate it if you saved the dicketry, OK?
