Breaking News! On August 30, 2010, Space Mountain at Walt Disney World exposed an “enhanced audio experience" that features new composition. The music will be played on all rides utilizing 60 newly installed speakers. The addition of the audio completes the major 2009 refurbishment which includes, added storyline elements, new lighting and darkening effects, updated loading area and queue, new queue interactive games and an on-ride photo system.
The "Starry-O-Phonic Sound" is said to change the mood of the attraction. It feels livelier inside the mountain, and you hear less of the ride system and other rider’s screams.
