# Hom many lifthills on WDW's Space Mountain?

Of course, the title should say "HOW many lifthills..."
Yes, this is a trick question.
Counting only lifts that are engaged in a regular, complete circuit of the track, How many lifthills are there inside Space Mountain at Walt Disney World? *** Edited 8/31/2008 4:58:01 AM UTC by ThemeDesigner***

Four lifthills on the ride (2 per track). The main lift that you go up on either track and the lift between the unload station and the load station. Then of course there is the conveyor walk-way lift you exit the mountain on. ;)

Bingo. For all the times I've ridden this in my life, I just recently realized you unload at a different level than you load. There's a second lift on each of the two tracks that brings the cars from the unload level up to the load level.
When I first noticed it, I thought I was seeing a car being moved off into a maintenance area. When I saw it a second time, the light (in my brain) went off.

Does anybody have any pictures of this? I'd be curious to see how much of a difference there really is.

I would guess there's about 10 ft between the lower "Unload Station" and the upper "Load Station"

I seem to remember that the two stations are above/below each other. Isn't the lift beside the track entering the unload station? Can anyone describe?

When the train leave the unload station, it can either go in the transfer track or do a 180 degree turn into the "B" lift. Its 15-20 feet high. Then, at the top of it, another 180 degrees turn into the load station.

Tricksies! LOL

Wow! Thanks for the link! I believe that's the website of my dreams right there!

Yeah, it's a pretty cool site. I really like the drawing of the Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios.
