    The last time it was open for the CM Holiday event, it ran with the lights on.

    They used to have these "AP Nights" where they would do something specialish for the annual passholders, such as - on the one's I attended - walking through the Roger Rabbit ride, and getting to examine to your heart's content the Lion King Parade floats as they sat stationary, stretched out along the parade route in Fantasyland. Not worth the added ticket price, in my opinion.

    But, wouldn't you know? - the very next one after I stopped attending featured a lights-on ride through Space Mountain. UGGGGHHHH!

    My boss's wife was telling me when we were waiting in line for SM that she got to ride with the lights on right before it was taken down back in '03, and it was terrifying seeing just how tiny some of those clearances are.

    In the "old" version, since you could see the girders and stuff whizzing by, I always had a little feeling that my head was going to get lopped off unless I ducked a little. Irrational probably... and perhaps intentionally designed-in to add a bit of thrill. I always tried to remember an interview with a coaster designer that I read once where he stated that he always allowed enough clearance so that if you were to stand up in the car and stretch your arms wide, you still couldn't touch anything. Perhaps. I always figured that during the ride was not a good time to test the theory!

    Sure.
    Become a CM, or be a CM's #1 Disney friend. So you can go to the CM Holiday Party. Doesn't happen every party, but it did the time I went.

    WOW!!!!! That's cool. Back in 1996 Dl had a Passholders party. You paid $20 per ticket (6 per passholder) and you got to have the park for the evening. It was nto a big hit but let me tell you that it was FUN. We got to go into the TDA lobby and we got to walk through Snow White and Pinocchio. They had all sorts of drawings (one was a tour of Walt's Apt) The highlight of the night was riding Space Moutain with the lights on...full speed...and I tell you that ride is scarier with the lights on than it is with them off. Not that i think it is a scary ride, but. Lights on Scary...lights of FUN...lights on...scary
