    SM will be worth it for years to come. Shoot it was as exciting the first time as it was the last time I rode it before it closed. (I seem to recall riding it in Nov 2002.....or maybe not....maybe I last rode it...gosh i don't know)

    It's a classic that will never loose "it"

    Probably not.
    Option 1) No refurb, and the track comes apart and a train derails and someone dies....

    Option 2) Major refurb, new track that doesn't fall apart, and no one dies.



    Yeah, I'd say no one dieing is worth a 2 year rehab.

    WDW SM is sooooo LAME!

    I first rode it in Dec 2004. I was so excited cause DL Sm had been closed for well over a year and i was having withdrawls. First thing off the plane... my brothers and I headed for WDW MK & got in line for space mtn. (we called all our friends bragging that we were riding SM. JEALOUS?!). While waiting the ride broke! But we happily endured for the pleasure and promise of the space travel that awaited us....
    We rode!
    I tried to like it and even forced myself to say it was great. But it wasnt. I lied to all my friends (im sorry) and worst of all we didnt even go back to give it a second chance. It would have been better not to have rode at all. Terribally disappointing.


    SM in Paris... now thats a different story. Fabulous! The BEST Mountain to date!

    SM in WDW is more like an indoor version of Matterhorn than anything else. I really like the loading station and the queue, but I'm also not a fan of the ride system.

    And the queue has dropped immensely in quality since they took out the SMTV screens...

    Ya, I went on it last week. It's very smooth, but none/very few of the new effects were on. New music is good, and the queue is still heavily under construction. I hope they open it with the "RocketMountain" night time track. I concur with what others have said...it's pretty much the same attraction, refreshed. Nothing majorly new...at least from what i've seen.

    As long as they have the techno babble in the queue, I'll be happy!

    I just rode Space Mountain in Paris for the first time on March 31, and I was disappointed in it! I went on it twice to make sure I didn't miss anything. Don't get me wrong...the ride was good, but not great. The ending was what ruined it for me. It completely petered out at the end, unlike ours where the last couple of banked-turns are the fastest of the whole ride. Also, the red spiraled tunnel just wasn't that great! Sorry to you Paris-SM fans, but I still think ours in Disneyland is the best! It may not go upside-down (not a big deal anymore!) or go as fast, but with the tight turns and smaller, more open cars, it feels almost as fast and provides a much better ending.

    Also, the outside station loading in Paris sucked big time!!! Ours is much more visually appealing and puts you in the mood! Sorry....just my humble opinion!

    On a brighter note, Thunder Mountain in Paris was incredible!!!!!!!! Wow!!! Talk about a great ending!!! It felt like it kept dropping down that curve forever!!! I was totally impressed with that ride. I almost didn't ride it because I thought it would be the same as ours in California, and I don't like that one at all!!! That one totally peters out at the end, whereas the Paris version was a big surprise!!!

    Disneyland's Space Mountain is SO much more thrilling! I was so disappointed when I when on WDW's. I am looking forward to DL's this year!
