Tonight after MK closed they turned on the lights in Space Mountain and invited all the CMs to ride. Im not sure about the specific occassion or reason for the event but I do know it was COOL! Surprisingly it wasnt crowded and we rode three times (right track once. left track twice, its smoother).
It was quite an eye openeing experience. I always thought the loading area was in a seperate room (like at DL) but come to find out the loading area is in the hollow of the mtn... just like the track. The track looks old and worn. Theres nothing pretty about it. If your not careful you might lose a hand as there are some low hanging crossbars.
Personally, I thought the WDW version of SM left much to be desired so riding it with the lights on gave it and edge Ive never known back home at DL.
Besides riding Everest this is the most exciting thing that Ive been able to do since starting the College Program less than a month ago! If this pace keeps up it will be a very interesting 5 months.
If your curious about anything feel free to ask questions... I will answer the best I can.
