    I can totally see that, given that it's completely gravity-driven. Nice to know they're looking out for us . And they re-did Small World because of the overweight guest issue. You'd get stuck and have to pull your boat along the side, which was kind of funny.

    What if you took a ton of hidden food on and once you got past the scales you ate it all the way up the star tunnel? And you were already on a heavy rocket? Like someone said above, they barely made it by 20 pounds..

    Where can I purchase this food that has no weight until it is ingested? I feel like I've been missing out on this modern marvel of science.

    that could have been me. i have had that happen about three times. my friends told me the cm said there was a problem with the lap bars but I did not want to chance another turn to the left. so i let them ride alone.

    Re: Had an interesting Space Mountain experience. Rocket turned left instead of right

    I was at DL a week ago and the train I was on got sent around twice! The train went past the
    boarding gates and stopped at the part with the woman in the window. We couldn't get out there, so the operator sent us around again! Me and my friend bragged about our oddly good luck to the rest of the group.

    Re: Had an interesting Space Mountain experience. Rocket turned left instead of right

    I've turned left a couple times but it don't go as far down as what those people in the vid do. Also once we were stopped where the lapbars are checked and they removed one couple and I saw them be directected around to line up for another rocket and we were allowed to continue without the rest of us getting off. The ride was down at that time but it was the quick down where they didn't have to evacuate the ride completely and we were actually moving within a minute or two of that happening. I believe the ride had been down for a few minutes already and we happened to be next to get on so they had that brief "leisurely loading" time while getting the last of the stuck rockets back around and out if I remember correctly.

    Yes I believe this happens if they have a few trains that took too long to unload/load. They will send a train thru for a second run without unloading to prevent a cascade shutdown.

    This happened to us one time. We went right thru the station to the lap bar check station and the CM asked us if we wanted to go again. Of course we all said YES.
    I guess if we said no they would have routed the train to the maintenance area for unload.

    Re: Had an interesting Space Mountain experience. Rocket turned left instead of right

    This has happened in the past and it is the reason why my boyfriend refuses to go on anymore. The CM made him feel like really bad about himself, because of his long legs the lap bar covered but his knee poked out a half an inch and she through a big fit about it and was REALLY rude. I of course reported her but even still.

    As a "pooh sized" chap myself (very Pooh!), I'm surprised this left turn has never happened to me. As for the lap bars, I have never really pulled them very far, sometimes barely over my knee and never had a CM blink twice. Weird.

    Running the maximum amount of trains only gives them a 20ish second window for load/unload (assuming normal weight of a train). If that train is too heavier, the window gets cut. The 20sec. window is barely doable as is. Also pulling off the train saves them some time.

    I had that happen to me about a year ago. The Cast Member asked if we wanted to go on again and we all screamed yes. I got a funny feeling being able to stay on it was like Deja Vu for me.

    Yup, I made the left turn to Fatsville once. Kinda interesting especially for a Disneydork like me.
