I must say that I love the new retro poster advertising the sound system. Retro 1950's/60's future is so much cooler and fun than the current vision of the future!

Retro Space Mountain is so cool! And I love the whole "space tourism" airline-type thing instead of something cold and impersonal.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

I love that poster, too!

Elissa - that might just work. If I tell her that you'll be proud of her, if she goes on Space Mountain, she might do it for the bragging rights! :lol:

I was actually able to run over to the Magic Kingdom after class to try out Space Mountain with the new audio.

Having just ridden Disneyland's version of the popular ride (multiple times) during my California trip, I was convinced that the West Coast version of the ride has just slightly bested our ride thanks to its audio and quality projections. After riding Florida's Space Mountain today, I can honestly say that we are once again on top, without much contest. The new audio is just that--its brand new. Best described as a "rave in space," the new audio is triggered by each train's passing, making for a more personal audio experience, although the groovy backtrack (with an ominous sounding "Space. Space. Space Moutain" DJ'd into the track) runs overhead so that the entire dome is engulfed in sound.

It used to be that in space, everyone could hear you scream. Now, all you hear is a fantastic, catchy audio track that you can't help but bounce to as you fly out of your seat. :b

The poster on the previous page is amazing! Does anyone know if it can be ordered online anywhere?

^^I'm SO happy to hear that! I've always liked WDWs layout better than Disneyland's, but the audio fit so well that I always gave it the slight advantage (except during that "Rockin'" session) and was pretty disappointed that the Magic Kingdom version wouldn't have audio when it returned last November. Now I'm really excited to get back to Florida next year to experience the new Space Mountain!
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

I'm actually kind of happy to hear that it's more of an ambient track instead of speakers bolted onto the ride. While the Disney sound system works better than any other onride coaster sound system out there, I've always felt that it's really LOUD in your face (or in your ears, I guess.)

Don't get me wrong, I actually really do like the audio on all three Space Mountain's that have them, the two Rock N Roller Coasters, and Screamin', but I'm kind of happy to hear that this is a bit different, but equally as effective.

Maybe we'll see something like this happen on Toyko's Space Mountain?
