So today I was thinking about Ghostly Galaxy and it got me thinking if I could build Space Mountain over again how would I do it?
My answer is intense (if you ask me anyways haha)
I would increase the height of it adding that second deck Walt had planned and expand it so that there would be no outdoor Q by moving the base of the acutual bottom of the "Mountiain" to reach the very edge of the the top of HISTA. The interior would be redone with a focus more on thrill, with loops and cork screws things like that and, the lighting would be like the scene in Peter Pan's Flight with acutall light bulbs inside. For the Q I would make it more like Hong Kong's and Tokyo's combined the bottom of it would be like rocks so that it looks like Space Mountain is coming out of the ground and not a struture and I would have a spped ramp going straight up for the center starting where the cosmic ball is and the interior would be like Tokyo's, almost the same. then for HISTA I would replace it with a trackless WALLE ride. which you would roam around the AXIOM and try to trackdown the plant from AUTO and such. Then I would move the starcade over to the "Outdoor" seating for pizza port and theme it to how pizza port looked in the movie and I would unfortiantly remove the moonliner because it does nothing for my plans, but do not worry homage would be everywhere.
I would also add Mission Space, albeit with a different planet and space craft, inside Space Mountain in little discs around space mountain each would house a shutlle and an elevator to get to them would be inside space mountain. I can't decied if it should be enclosed and play the pre show or have windows and allow you to see the interior of space mountain or both? The entrance would be like Hong Kong's Space Mountain where you enter through like a portal and walk through the Q which gives the history of space missions and explains your mission today. There would also be part of my people mover going through the Mountain, but that is another thread.
So thoughts? Love it? Hate it?
EDIT: I would like to say I would like to tone down the thrill factor and make it more like it is now just maybe bigger drops and more left hand turns! haha. Also money is not an issue cause this is blue sky to the max.
new edit: I think iu would keep the orginal space mountain track too as well as my idea with a loop and corkscrew.
