    Space Mountain and the Basilica of Guadalupe

    Okay so yesterday it was a special day here in Mexico, we celebrate the anniversary of the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe (and also my little sis' b-day). Down in Mexico City, millions of people go to the Basilica of Guadalupe to pray and congradulate Virgin Mary. Some time ago I looked at a picture of the Basilic and noticed it had a very strong resemblance to Space Mountain. Not to mention it was openened almost the same year... 1976. Jugde for yourself:



    It kinda does look like Space, doesn't it?
    I have a dream
    A song to sing
    To help me cope
    Trough everything

    If you see the wonder
    of a FairyTale
    You can take the future
    even if you fail...

    I believe in Angels
    Something good in everything I see
    I believe in Angels
    When I know the time is right for me...

    I'll cross the stream.... I have a dream

    Erm... yeah.... but if I've gotta be honest, it reminds me more of the DLP Discoveryland Jules Verne Space Mountain, not the DL old-Discoveryland-wannabe-Tomorrowland new-Matt Ouimet-cool-Tomorrowland Space Mountain. Did that come out right?

    I swear I saw the Virgin of Guadalupe appear in the flying cookie in the old Space Mountain.

    It all makes so much sense now........

    <--- has no clue what Speedway was trying to say!

    But yeah, I can definately see Space in that photo. Kinda funny. They don't have FastPass choking up the entrance, do they?

    And is there a LIM launch and a loop??

    Look at this, they're almost identical:


    It's John Hench's original rendering of Space Mountain, BTW.
