    Arrow Different Space Mountains

    I was wondering what the difference is between the Space Mountains in the Disneyparks. What`s the difference between the Orlando version and the Anaheim one? Or between the Paris version and the other ones?
    I think the American versions look a lot alike. But maybe thatīs just the exterior. I heard that the Paris version has one of the most complicated rollercoaster tracks in the world, so it must be different from the rest right?

    great gravy man, you and your links

    oh well I could be accused of linking much too

    whats different about the space mountains eh?

    what parks have you visited yourself?

    there are several guides to this but I'll just run through the most obvious

    WDW's Space Mountain is the first Space Mountain built and uses the same basic track type as the Matterhorn but the desing is changed a bit to be more "spacy", still the basic bobsled design remains and it even has two tracks just like the matterhorn, as the first Space Mountain WDW's has the most light leaks

    Disneylands space mountain was built differently and was built mostly underground due to space coonstraints, DL's has a different type of track and has a much more thrilling design according to "most" reviewers, DL's Space Mountain features a different seating arrangement and is not bobsled styled due to a different track design and the fact that a single track means you need to take up more people per car. Disneylands Space Mountain is getting reinovated for the 50th and will feature dual sets of Special effects one for the nightime and one for the daytime. When Disneyland Space reopens with the new effects it will still have the same track system however

    TDL's Space Mountain is essientaly the same design as Disneylands origional Space Mountain before the reinnovation

    Disneyland Paris Space Mountain is totaly different from all the others featuring a different plot and a launched start along with several inversions in the ride, it was recently upgraded with new effects much like DL's becoming Space Mountain Mission II

    HKDL's will feature the same track as DL's new Space Mountain also and will feature it's own effects set but it's unknown weather it will feature different effects in both the night and the day the way DL's does

    All I know is I just got back from DLP and Mission II is the best Disney Park rollercoaster I've ever been on! (I have not been to Tokyo however) We rode it over and over and were always impressed! Awesome ride!!!
