    Re: What is a better Ride California Screamin or Space Mountain...........

    depends on what you are looking for.

    speed: Screamin'
    themeing: Space
    inversions: Screamin'
    the unknown: Space
    soundtrack: tie (for me anyway, when Screamins' works anyway)
    vehicle comfort: Space (by a hair)
    quality of audio: Space
    g forces: Screamin'
    new technology: Screamin'

    Each has pros and cons but both, as the OP stated, are excellent rides.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Space Mountain.

    -Less Cheesy Music
    -Usually a faster line
    -Dark rides are more thrilling IMO
    -Awesome theming in the station
    -Overall cheese factor is low compared to Screamin'

    Screamin' is fun, but it is just too cheesy to me. The music is just a long cell phone ring tone, theming is minimal (which I guess is the theme, but still, ew). If there's gonna be an inversion, at least put one or two more!

    Space all the way. You can't ride Screamin with all the lights on or off,

    I like the music, most of the time, the music doesn't work on Screamin'.

    Re: What is a better Ride California Screamin or Space Mountain...........

    Space for me no question, though as I've said before, I really look forward to riding Screamin' during a WoC show which I think should be awesome and make it a close competition, at least at night.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    Better attraction? Space Mountain. Better ride? As in, the physical act of moving through it and the physiological sensations it produces? Probably California Screamin'. But if that's what I was primarily interested in, I wouldn't be at the DLR, now would I?

    Space Mountain 100%. Well themed and thrilling. Screamin' is just thrilling.

    Space Mountain, no contest. Screamin looks like a roller coaster, and sounds like a roller coaster, but it's too tame to actually be a roller coaster. If it were about 10% faster and the loop were bigger and the whoop-de-dos pressed you into your seat and then lifted you up more, then it might be better than Space Mountain.

    Space Mountain is not a roller coaster either, but it doesn't pretend to be. It's a fun, quick ride in the dark; which is great fun.

    Space is definately the better ride but, IMO, Screamin' is a bit more fun than Space.

    I don't think they can compete - both are awesome and for different reason......Space is a thrill - and knowing Walt Disney himself had a hand in it's early 'blueprint' makes it all that much better. Screamin' is awesome and is a thrill - being outside and such........nothing like riding Screamin' when the fireworks in Disneyland can be seen in the distance! It's totally awesome!!!

    They are "equal pascual" as far as I am concerned

    30 year old Space Mountain is still the fun imaginative unique thrilling ride it was the day it opened (albiet with upgrades and refinements).

    Screemin' is fun, but with the same charm as any other ride found in a dozen or so theme parks anywhere else in the world.

    From what I've heard, Space Mountain goes about 30 mph and California Screamin' goes 55 mph. Everything seems faster in the dark.

    Space Mountain is my vote. The soundtrack is what really gets me.
