    999 Times

    "I read this on another site, I thought you guys might be interested in it."


    Gary Estrada has made his mark, riding Walt Disney World's Haunted Mansion ride for the 999th time -- on Halloween.
    "Whenever you reach your goal it's just a relief," Estrada told a Disney employee.


    Estrada rode 999 times because that's how many "ghosts" are in the attraction. He's the first person -- to Disney's knowledge, anyway -- to hit that goal in just 10 months. Estrada began his marathon riding in January

    If I can take my pillow and blankie and watch it 999 times in succession without unboarding. I could use a good nights sleep.

    As much as I love CoP, I love it because of how infrequently I ride it. Really makes me appreciate it more. I think if I started riding it over and over and over again, it really would get old fast.

    I didn't anticipate that being a problem, but just in case, here's my precautionary announcement:

    Welcome to the DisneyWorldTrivia.com Space Mountain rider marathon! So as to prevent a negative experience for any of our guests today, and to make our adventure as magical as possible for each and every one of you, should you feel as though your out of this world experience would be further improved upon by the addition of a Sick-Sac to your baggage prior to departure, you are encouraged to speak to a Cast Member at EPCOT's Mission:Space facility and pick one up prior to your launch time here. Thank you, and do enjoy your adventure!

    I could marathon any disney ride if i had the time. My brother and I went on ToT and RRC so many times in a row that i dont know how i ate lunch. We woulda done more but we had to leave the World that day. Maybe next time ill try a new ride to go on for awhile(that is if my friends dont get so sick of it that they drag me out of the ride) I'm thinking CoP would be quite fun. There are so many little details that it would take awhile before it become tedious.

    Maybe a few times around... but I'd need a break after a little bit. It's not the ride that gets old... it's that song!
