    *The Official* Rockit Mountain Thread

    ok after weeks and weeks of seeing new rockit mountain threads asking the same questions and being repeated, I thought it would be a great idea to start an official Rockit Mountain thread to discuss it, its rumors, its facts and everything Pre to Past Rockit Mountain opening :]

    k to start with the question i've been wondering...Will Rockit Mountain be faster than Space Mountain?

    I've heard it'll be using a Van-Hagar track as opposed to a Van-Halen one.

    I doubt very much it would be faster than the normal ride. To do so would change the entire blocking of the ride.

    LIM Launch?

    Is it said that it's going to be actual Oldschool / Newschool rock music??? or maybe Disney will make rock audio track(s) of their own for the ride?

    The actual ride itself is not going to change.

    Only the lights and effects are going to change.


    I'm assuming the entire ride is going to have to cycle through with empty trains once per night to change the effects from "Space" to "Rock". Which shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.

    If they were changing the actual ride every night the ride would have to shut ALL the way down, go through testing and then re-open. This would be stupid.

    The soundtrack is currently rumored to be Van Halen/Van Hagar's "Dreams".

    I just rode the new Space Mountain in Hong Kong. They have a big metal ring with lights around it which lights up just as you make the big drop. Since the two rides are almost the same (including the asteroid at the top of the lift hill) I would bet that we will have the same one turned on for our Rock-It Mountain.

    and I know that rumor is only here on mice chat because somebody thinks that song would be perfect for the ride...



    or am I wrong?

    That would actually be really cool if they put LED lights around the entire track, so you couldnt see the track but the outline of the track..... i'm smiling just thinking about some type of change
