When I was a kid, roller coasters were not my friend. I didn’t like the speed, I didn’t like the turns, and at the top of my list of ones I didn’t like was Space Mountain. However, as I got older, I tried other roller coasters, and learned that they are a lot of fun, and have been a fan of roller coasters for years now. The first time I road Space Mountain was in 2000 with my soon to be wife Cindy, and since it was in the dark, I kept trying to anticipate the turns, and ended up with a splitting headache for my troubles. So, that first time, definitely not my favorite #DisneyMemory!
However, I gave it another shot in a different visit, and over time, I grew to like Space Mountain a great deal. My favorite #DisneyMemory from this great attraction comes on June 11, 2012 — which just happens to be the day that Shane proposed to Stephanie — and the day that Stephanie, Shane, Cindy, Kyle, Kerry, and myself rode Space Mountain together. I’ll never forget because Kerry was very nervous — to this day she still doesn’t like Space Mountain — but she tried it out, and gave it her best effort. She was actually doing okay — until, that is, Kyle let out a blood curdling scream — and from that moment on, it was chaos!
Such a fun ride, that was, and at 1:30 AM or something like that, it felt like the ride was ramped up to an insane speed, despite the ride being the slowest roller coaster at Disney. I don’t know what it was, perhaps all of those factors working together, but that day, that visit, that ride, was my favorite #DisneyMemory for Space Mountain.
