DFP Episode 002 - Space Mountain - Back to the Future!

The Disney Fanatic Podcast with your Hosts Sam, Jordyn, Tony, and Wade
Episode #2 - "Space Mountain - Back to the Future!" - July 27, 2006

We reported in this podcast that the Rockit Mountain was open or in soft openings. This is incorrect and we are sorry. Rockit Mountain is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2007 with the Year of a Million Dreams. It was also stated that the ride will have music of a VanHalen-esc feel. This has not been confirmed. There was talk that because Rockit Mountain was advertised as part of 2006 Grad Nights, a modified version of what was actually planned for the ride, was rushed out in May and June. This modified version was rumored to include VanHalen music. It has not been confirmed that any VanHalen music was used for Grad Nights.

Show notes
Due to a scheduling conflict, Jordyn couldn't join us for this show.
She'll be back for the next episode.

This show we have a new co-host, Wade Jackson, owner/operator of This site is a roller coaster enthusiest forum with Six Flags Great Adventure as the main theme park but not limited to just that park.
