    Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy Thread

    D23 | The Official Community for Disney Fans


    09.24.09 - While happy haunts have long greeted guests at Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, some new scary spooks are taking up temporary residence this Halloween season in Tomorrowland at one of the park's signature attractions. Starting Friday, September 25, Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy will add a spine-tingling new layer to the already-thrilling ride.



    The chilling seasonal event has been happening in Hong Kong Disneyland since 2007, when, show producer Steve Roach explains, "they had the idea that there's a new life form that's been discovered in space, and we want to recruit the guests to explore this new life force. Upon going into Space Mountain guests discover the 'life forces' are a little more than we thought." Steve says the ride begins like your typical Space Mountain voyage, but — as these things do — something goes awry. "It's a galaxy where haunted star clusters and supernovas threaten you at every turn. It's one close call after another until you finally reach the end of your space flight — and we hope you make it home safely!" jokes Steve, who's worked on numerous park projects including the Disneyland Dream Suite and the Sleeping Beauty Castle walkthrough.

    During the evening, park-goers strolling through Tomorrowland will instantly notice a change in the attraction when every 6–8 minutes a ghostly new effect will take place. "While you are in the concourse queue outside, we are going to have events on the exterior of Space Mountain," Steve reveals. "Some of these unknown life forces might be trying to escape the mountain."

    With all that back info, here's a thread to talk about your experiences with it, your thoughts, your photos on Disneyland's latest holiday layover. I'll post my thoughts late friday or saturday.

    Re: Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy Thread

    I've heard from an inside source that the ride operators for Space Mountain were all taken to an Imagineering trailer on site and were shown a computer generated preview of the experience with an Imagineer's perspective.

    *Spoilers ahead, highlight to read.*

    Spoiler

    He/She went on to say that they (being the WDI) want to try and re create the effect of a shaking track similar to Expedition Everest (like a haunt of some kind grabbing on to the track and shaking it) and have haunts not only popping out and scarring you but also chasing you as well if they had sufficient time to implement all the effects they want to.

    He/She went on to say that for all that they want to do with the attraction, it would make the Hong Kong version of the experience a joke.


    I really have no way of verifying this information until tomorrow so I'm kind of skeptical myself but if what he/she says is true (which as a source, is extremely reliable and concrete) it should make for a very entertaining experience. ^_^

    It's VERY scary. It's definitely going to be a hit. I was extremely skeptical, but came off the ride quite shaken and excited. It's really fantastic.

    Ok, how scary is VERY scary? While I do paranormal investigations with no problem, I don't do haunted houses (meaning the typical Knott's Scary Farm type of stuff). In fact I cold-cocked one of the knights in the Haunted Mansion when he jumped out and grabbed my shoulder years ago. (Things jumping out at me scare the crap outta me and I accidently laid him out cold..opps). So should I be concerned?

    Edit: I have no problem with Indy, ToT, or even the Haunted Mansion (as long as they don't have the knights back in it. LOL)

    Re: Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy Thread

    I was very disappointed with the lack of theming outside for Rockin' Space Mountain. I'm very happy to hear that they have made the effort to also theme the outside, and hopefully the indoor queue as well. This is going to be good! APers, I'm counting on you to enjoy it for me!

    My sister was able to ride it today. She went on it twice and she was extremely frightened. Nearly broke her boyfriends hand while holding on to him LOL. My sister works at DCA so she attended the cast previews today.

    From her reaction, it looks like the kids are going to be really scared of this layover.
