Who is the ride manufacturer for the space mountains? And is the new track made by the same as the original?

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Just in case it is only environmental audio, have you ever ridden a coaster with a similar sound system? And if so, how was the actual quality and clarity of the audio? I understand that Disney could probably do it as well or better than anyone else but I would like to get an idea of what to expect. I guess that could possibly make more sense with the tiny size of the track on this ride.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yeah, I'm thinking it could just be sound-effect stuff at certain points of the ride. They already have 2 area's where that is before the lift and at the final breaks. Granted, those are in tunnels so it makes it easier to pick up. Maybe they are tunnelling other parts of the ride!!!!

I'm also one who MUCH prefers the MK version of space. I find Disneyland's to be rather boring, even with the new audio and effects.

Plus that one, after riding Saturday, is in DESPERATE need of another refurb.

Well, Evolution (Revolution) at Bobbejaanland had a pretty awesome pumping soundtrack playing in the building as the train went through the course. That was pretty freaking great!

EuroMir also has an AWESOME sound track playing during the indoor section of the ride. So it's been done very successfully before and I agree, if this is the route Disney chooses to go, then I would hope they can do it even better!

^ Disney certainly doesn't have a problem having audio on many of their dark-rides that aren't on-ride, so I would assume they could use some of those same tricks for Space Mtn.

Granted, the speeds are obviously going to be MUCH different, but if anybody can make it work, it's Disney.

I believe Arrow built all Space Mountains prior to Space Mountain Paris, afterwards, Vekoma built the remaining Space Mountains (including the DL's upgraded version) and they will probably be rebuilding the Orlando one.

^I'm pretty sure AMEX (not American Express) made the track for the update of Disneyland's Space Mountain as well as for that of Hong Kong Disneyland, though I could be wrong.

The only Vekoma's Disney in its parks are the roller skaters, Space Mountain: Mission 2 in Paris, Expedition Everest and the two Rock n' Rollercoasters.

I thought it was december...either way it goes you wont be able to experience it at that time...

If you really wanna ride it I would see if I could change travel dates...
"B&M will NEVER build a coaster over 300 ft..." until 2012
"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015
