Have you been on the most recent version of Hyperspace Mountain? It's the best overlay of this ride and I wouldn't mind if it became permanent. The music, projections and effects are absolutely amazing, especially the laser beams.
Is it different now from when it started?

I thought it was good, better than the normal SM. But I still want that ride WAY upgraded

It really hasn't seen an update in 20 years and even then the main ride didn't change that much. They could for sure make you feel like your in space way more than they do and i would not be against a story. Also it would upgrade the halloween version and they could do a new star wars version at some point to.
In regards to the PeopleMover...did anybody here ever go on it? It looked really cool :(
I remember it, I was young but the Tron part really stuck in my mind for a long time as a kid. It was fun for what it is a way to get off your feat for 15 mins and make the land feel more alive. I went on the one at MK a few years back..think I rode it three times because i wanted a break but also wanted to be on a ride.

Space Mountain to me, works because it doesn't *need* to have a grand or overly complicated story. It's just going out on a patrol into the reaches of the galaxy. Could they add more scenic pieces, to enhance the feeling of travelling through space and seeing stuff like asteroids, planets in the distance, and other ships as we travel? Yes. But wanting a grand story for Space Mountain doesn't make sense for me at all.

Disneyland, ain't the Paris Space Mountain.

It's been over 25 years ago, but yeah, I've been on it many times. It's fun and relaxing, but other than seeing the interior of some ride buildings, you can get similar overhead views of the park from the Monorail.

I believe the latest version added more projected scenes and effects. It definitely feels like you're in the middle of a space battle with near misses from being hit by lasers and ships whizzing by you. The entire ride was retracked from 2003-2005 so that's a major renovation within the last 20 years.

Its literally just a dark room now.

To me thats not so impressive, also space is all about being epic Star Wars, Halo, Mass Effect...who wants nothing like the best? I just think they need to add some port windows int he Q...maybe a robot or two. Then when you get to space see planets things to look out besides the "lights" that are suppose to be stars. This is Disney, and a land based in the future and feels very much like the past in a cheap way.

Space doesn't have to be an epic space opera story. I think the defining factors in making this ride so successful are: A. The soundtrack, and B. the actual ride.

Lol

I hate this new Space...yeah I hate epic stories, new effects and the fact there are more things to look out and feels like your flying though space

The ride can stay the same but make it feel like an E ticket. I don't get how this is int he same park as Rise of the Resistance which in sooo many ways makes you feel like you went to space.

I'm a huge fan of Star Wars. I was lucky enough to go during media previews (Aunt is a freelance writer and was asked to go) and I had a blast! I haven't gone on Rise yet since I haven't gone since the media previews. Ok but Space Mountain, on the other hand, is just a product of its time and sure if they had new effects the ride would benefit, but what do you mean more things to look out and feel like your flying through space?

Compare that to this awesomeness.

And think of what they could do with NEW tech not tech from 2013.

Projection mapping has come a long way, look at how alive the new Mickey ride looks. Imagine a Space mountain where as you pass planets they have different effects on them and look alive and vivid.
I want to note we are years....years from Tomorrowland getting redone so the tech by then will be even better. I would love Space Mountain and the Piaaz restaurant next door be redone and themed to have a story that makes them in universe. Riding a cool new SM and then going into a space port to eat...thats my dream.

I would also not mind a Tron ride but the coaster takes up a lot of space...so I could settle with something like Radiator springs racers that is a dark ride with a little bit of thrill at the end
