    Space Mountain Staggered Refurb

    Space Mountain will be going down intermittently during the month of September for several days at a time. The dates floating around as of now are, Sept. 3rd-5th, Sept. 10th-12th and Sept. 23rd-26th.

    Nobody seems to know the "whys" but it is being said that trim brakes will be added that reduce wear and tear to the cars and track system but result in the ride speed slowing down at specific areas of the ride.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Time will tell, info generally comes to light as time goes on. There is speculation floating as to the whys they are trying to slow her down at certain points. It will leak eventually.

    Meh, apples and oranges. The new brakes are in theory suppose to slow at certain points, not overall. The slowing at certain points with better brake should help the jerking around that happened after the last rehab. While the overall experience will not be slowed brakes do slow and stop that is why they are there.
