Well, I've come up with another layover idea for Space Mountain. (I can already hear the groans. LOL) But, I figured I'd throw them out here for the world to see.
The following idea is a layover for Space Mountain during the Halloween season. The name of the ride would be changed to either Spooky Space Mountain or Haunted Space Mountain.
What I see is for this Halloween layover are a multitude of changes. First, during the ascent the laser lights would be changed to the image of a multitude of skeleton skulls circling around. (This would help keep the illusion that your rocket is actually tilting.) As for the asteroid, this would be changed into a gigantic jack-o-lantern spinning out of control that's ready to slam into the side of your rocket. Along the track would be scary looking eyes. These eyes would be bright enough to notice, but not so bright as to reveal the track. Then, at the final moment when your rocket is about to re-enter the station, a plethora (sp?) of ghosts would fly all around your rocket with a scary howling noise.
Now, as for the music...a very scary, very eerie type of song would be chosen as the soundtrack. Something similar to Michael Jackson's, "Thriller," but not that particular song.
Also, for the actual fascade (sp?) of the mountain ghosts and bats would be shown flying up the sides. Another possibility for the fascade (sp?) is to show the classic Disney cartoon of The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow - The Adventures Of Ichabod Crane upon the Mountain's walls.
This idea needs some tweaking and work, yes, but I just wanted to see what people thought.
(Yeah, I know this is WAY before Halloween, but hey, why not share an idea when it comes to me?)
