I went on Space Mountain first thing when I got to DL today and got a fastpass even though the wait was only 10min in the afternoon!
After a few hours I went back to use the FP and grabbed annother one for later. After the ride, when we were returning to the loading area, instead of stopping to unload, the rocket kept going forward. Then the CM asked us if we wanted to ride again!!!!
I was like, heck ya!!! As we got the the end of the countdown and started the ride the second time, the CM's voice came over the loudspeaker and said something to the effect of "attention space travellers, all rockets are in a holding pattern". They said something else but we were moving toward and away from the speaker and the music was still playing so I could't hear it all clearly.
Then our ride came to a complete stop about 2/3 through the ride. About 30 seconds later the lights all came on!!!! I've allways heard stories, but never thought that it would happen to me!!
They came on the loud speaker apologizing about the delay and told the people in line they could wait or leave. We were stuck in the ride for 20 min with the lights on and then two CM's walked out and one pushed us down the track. I was on the right side and we made a right turn and I was sideways looking like 20 feet down to the concrete! Scary! Then the exit tunell was wierd with the lights off, like strips of lighting stuck all over the walls and cieling. The flash even went off to take our pic!!!
Then we came arround and waited in our rocket in the loading area for like 20 more min, while everyone in line was staring at us!! They tried to start the ride again but had problems. They finally got it going again and asked us if we want to ride AGAIN!!!!! So we did a third lap, this time with no problems. So I was on the ride for about 45min total.
I ended up coming back and using my second fastpass and riding againg at closing before I went home as that is my tradition to ride SM last and I couldn't let the FP go to waste. The CM recognized me from when we were stuck in the loading area and she was like, "back for more"?
I got to ride five times and only waited in line three times!!
This is the third time something wierd has happened to me on Space Mountain in the last couple months.
A month or so ago I was riding with TicTockDragon and the music stopped durring the ride and a couple weeks ago our rocket was pulled to the left before the ride started and we had to walk through the cage area where they have all the computers and video monitors! But this was the craziest!!! Maybe it was because of the full moon out tonight?
I took a few pics with my camera phone, inside but it is 4 years old and the camera is a piece of junk and i just realized I had is set at low (160x120) which makes it even worse, so you probably can't see much but here they are annyway.
Just wanted to share, thanks for reading.
