    Does anyone else miss the Preview Room in Space Mountain?

    I remember as a kid, right inside the Space Mountain Queue there were dark tinted windows where you could watch the ride in anticipation of boarding. Im sad they took it out, the track was so close to the window you could only see the glow in the dark strips on the car roaring by, it was such an amazing experience...does anyone else remember/miss this?!

    I do indeed remember it, and lasted into early 2000's. Not a huge epic thing but I liked it as well for the view into the attraction and the rumble as the cars came by closer. It was very atmospheric.

    I miss the preview windows a lot. I'm not sure why they got rid of them. No one's been able to tell me why. But it's not a deal breaker for me. I really enjoy the new queue which they put in a few years ago.

    yeah I still like that in the Loading Area you can still feel and hear the rumble of the trains overhead...and the sounds of the Communication Chat and that "electronic exploding" sound every 5 minutes...aaaahhhhh it reminds me of being a kid and how immersive and exciting the whole experience was...

    I remember reading that they got rid of them to make the show building Darker, i think thats the same reason they got rid of the Giant Orange Disco Planet...I really do miss the preview area, just the suspense of it all

    I love that comm chat track. Very glad I got it off one of those Disneyland Forever machines before they went away.

    "OSP, focus camera on spacecraft umbillical." Cheesy in the very best of ways and still makes me happy just listening to it at home, even.

    With Fastpass I think the queue rarely backs up to where the preview window was, but I may be wrong. I do have great memories of staring through that window up at the "disco planet" seeing all the twinkling stars, and hearing/feeling the rockets whiz by! Great memories.

    ^^^ I have it on my Ipod LOL! I found it on Limewire ages ago, I still cant find a version that has the "electronic exploding sound" in its entirety, theres a 4 minute and a 7 minute version..."all systems go" "go" "go" "go" lol!



    The exploding electronic sound I refer to happens at 7:03-7:05
