I have the answer in a book somewhere, but this is a common misconception. The first tubular steel roller coaster was somewhere in France. When I get back home from this trip, I will give the book title, and try to scan a picture of the ride.
The second tubular steel coaster is NOT Space in WDW. I am not sure what it is, but the mine train coaster at six flags over texas was built in 1966, and Space Mountain was built in 1975 (I think)
