Space Mountain: Mission 2 at DLP

Saturday, April 2, 2005 12:43 AM
Space Mountain: Mission 2 at DLP is currently hosting soft openings for Cast Members and relatives, meaning we have the first opinions on this rehabbed attraction.

Here are the changes:

Trains now launch from the bottom of the cannon, instead of 2/3 up. New light effects added in the cannon, which before was painted black... and that's the extent of the decoration!

4 trains on 2 stations is now the maximum number of trains that can run on it, due to the addition of airgates in the station as well as the new launch.

Disco balls effect added to the first half of the ride, like on the WDW Space Mountain. Sounds strange, but this sounds like an improvement! Before, the first half, beside flat painted asteroids and 2 set pieces was pretty much just pitch black.

Supernova effect replace the moon effect.

Brand new music.

The trains were just repainted and no track pieces were changed, unfortunately!

Thanks for the update. Any word on the "comet chase" sequence that people were getting excited about in the second half of the ride?

Oh yes... They say that the helix after the tongue loop is the best part of the ride. I won't spoil it... but let's just say its very effective!
