    Since Space Mountain closed, Please TLC It!

    Since its closed, now would be good time to at least replace burnt out lightbulbs, and sweep the dirty spaceship. They should really fix it while they can.

    I totally agree. Fix the strobe tunnel and restore lost sound effects. And replace the lap bar/handrail cushioning.

    Re: Since Space Mountain closed, Please TLC It!

    I agree with above. The cushions are very gross. And everything is very dirty; so it's no wonder they keep the lights dimmed so low

    The strobe tunnel would be nice if it worked properly again. Some lamps/ballasts won't set them back much time and material.

    Mine is an exterior issue, but does the outer dome still do the white strobe light pattern.

    I haven't seen it in a while and the mountain seems to always stay blue now.

    They should fix things while they can. It would make sense.

    I said the exact same thing when it closed. They may as well and I hope they do.

    It should never be allowed to get that way in the first place. It's called preventative maintenance, something Disney used to take seriously.

    Every time I ride it, I can't help but notice all of the burnt out lights in the power-up tunnel. The least they could do is replace those...

    And to add to the list, replace some of the mesh holders where you would put purses, hats, etc. Not that I even use them anyways but some of them were ripping and it just looks bad.

    correct me if i'm wrong, but i thought the strobe light effect on the outside was only during Rockin' Space Mountain?

    and i agree with all of the above...it only needs cosmetic fixes really. i'm sure they can get it all done in 2-3 days

    The problem with this theory: The ride is closed due to fall risks for employees. While they may be able to access some parts of the ride, Disney will not let them in due to the potential liability until everything is squared away. Don't get your hopes up that ANYTHING will look better...

    It was definitely for the normal version of the ride. The dome would be blue, but once in a while there would be a white strobe pattern across the whole mountain.

    Re: Since Space Mountain closed, Please TLC It!

    Dear god please fix the strobe tunnel. Lights have been burnt out in there for YEARS. I have to imagine this is as simple as just replacing them... and even if its a wiring issue seems like it could be fixable in increments overnight.

    I simply cannot wrap my head around why these lights have not been fixed. It is ridiculous.

    I think the best you could hope for would be paint in the queue, and even that may be too much to hope for. Any other work as said above would be completely barred because that's the reason it's shut in the first place.
