Things could be MUCH worse. Just be glad nothing is themed to the Spice......That era was so painful I can't even go there. ;)

timmyk, I thought the same thing.

I always thought GnR's "Sweet Child O' Mine" would have been cool on a coaster, but I don't think Axl and Disney mix. :)

LOL, how many truly remember when "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes" came out?

I actually saw RHCP tour after that album. They played a little club in an alley in downtown Cincinnati. The Metro was a gay bar that started playing altertanative dance music and booked live bands too.

I saw RHCPs, the dBs, Love Tractor, Divine (yes - that Divine), and many local/regional alt bands of the day. The mid 80s were a great time for that bar.

After the music scene crashed, the bar went back to catering to the drag show crowd and was torn down years ago. In summer of 2005, stalwart mid 80s alt rock faves the Violent Femmes actually played a free show on the site of the old bar, oddly enough - in Gano Alley.

All things considered, it could be much worse. They could be using the CandyLand song from RCT2.

That's for posting that link, PT300! That looks freakin' amazing! It looks like a pimped up, er, ROCKED out version of the one in Florida.

There should be rock music on EVERY coaster. Well, at least in my world. ;)

The ride was completely rebuilt over a 2+ year period recently. Same layout, new B&M-smooth track and new trains. All effects inside were redone. If I had a list of favorite coasters the DL (non-rockin') Space would be in the top 10. The WDW version would be aroudn 50 or so. The Tokyo one would be somewhere in between.

Did Rockin Screamin' today and liked it. Sure, its just Screamin' with a new song, but it actually worked a lot better than I expected as far as editing and fitting to the pace of the ride.

I rode Rockin' Space as well, and its growing on me.

All in all, its a neat promotion and one that I hope returns yearly with different bands each year.

I can't wait to ride in early February. The video looks great and I love the mosh jam timed to the very end when the upgraded version of SM goes absolutely nuts. Peabody is right, the upgrades are fantastic. It's now my favorite ride at Disneyland.

Well I rode both and wrote up a small review of Space Mountain.

Screamin's audio happened to cut out three times during my ride :-/

Note: I am certainly not a Disney fan, however I tried to be as whats the word... un-biased as possible :)

I was very disappointed to be honest :-/ The music wasnt very loud and it was a bit to bright. Basically it was this. The tunnel where they do all the cool effects was very very good. The sound checks etc. were top notch. However when we got out of the tunnel it kind of fell apart... There were displays on the wall of people dancing like you see on an iPod commercial. You would drive past walls of lights which was kind of random... So I think they could have done alot better. But they didnt and that is that.

If you would like to see the review of a Disney fanatic then check out the thread on RCPro. Or a site like Visions Fantastic should have a better written review :)

neat to hear it was redone. i've never been to california, but the florida one, although a classic, seems a bit tired
