    Post 11/03/06 - Space Ride-A-Thon

    This weekend there is a Host Ride-A-Thon for the new Space Mountain Ride tracks. By participating in the Ride-A-Thon you can get a piece of the track before they go on sale.

    Simply go to one of the Host rooms, such as "VMK Space Blue Start," wait in line and then jump on the track. In the end you will get a prize for your ride and then you can hop on again.

    The even runs from 8:30am-8:30pm VMK time Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

    Friday: Space Mountain Ride Downhill.
    Saturday: Space Mountain Ride Uphill *(Was extended until VMK close)
    Sunday:



    Early you were only able to get one track piece. According the message you should be able to at least get one from each color, so this was a bug. Later in the day it was fixed and you were then able to get one piece for each time you rode.









    Notice the different turns and such? Look at the track changer.


    There are also these new items spotted:



    Space Turnstyle:
    Space Teleports:

    Ah, here is the thread. I asked the question in VMK discussion on why you can't win more than one piece since it said you could. I wonder if they are just testing at this point and that is also why it is still free.

    Yeah, looks similar to the Maze event.. us "morning" players are used as guinea pigs to test out their rides and see what needs to be changed. Then when the peak hours come around (when the kids get out of school probably) the rides will run more smoothly for this afternoon and the rest of the weekend.

    Still.. can't complain about the free pieces

    Host_Phinny just said that "the room works fine" and that "they are working on the prize issue." She also said "it might help to log out and then back in."

    I'm off to work - have fun riding today and hopefully this will fix itself.
