Space Mountain

An Attraction in Magic Kingdom

Last updated: February 23, 2024

At a Glance

Totally enclosed in a mammoth futuristic structure, Space Mountain has always been one of the Magic Kingdom’s most popular attractions. The theme is a space flight through dark recesses of the galaxy. Effects are superb, and the ride is one of the wildest in the Magic Kingdom: much zippier than Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, but much tamer than the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios or Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom.

Roller-coaster aficionados will tell you (correctly) that Space Mountain is a designer version of the Wild Mouse, a midway ride that’s been around for more than 70 years. There are no long drops or swooping hills as there are on a traditional coaster—only quick, unexpected turns and small drops. Disney’s contribution essentially was to add a space theme to the Wild Mouse and put it in the dark.

An Elburn, Illinois, reader recommends bracing yourself—literally:

They should require you to wear a neck brace on Space Mountain. That ride is painful.

People who can handle a fairly wild coaster ride will take Space Mountain in stride. What sets Space Mountain apart is that cars plummet through darkness, with only occasional lighting. Half the fun of Space Mountain is not knowing where the car will go next.

Space Mountain is a favorite of many Magic Kingdom visitors ages 7–60. Each morning before opening, particularly during summer and holiday periods, several hundred guests await the signal to head to the ride’s entrance. To get ahead of the competition, be one of the first in the park. Proceed to the end of Main Street and wait at the entrance to Tomorrowland. Parents touring with children too small to ride can take advantage of Rider Switch. Many of these guests opt for TRON Lightcycle / Run first, then visit Space Mountain after.

Seats are one behind another, as opposed to side by side, which means that parents can’t sit next to their kids who meet the height requirement but who might get scared.

If you don’t catch Space Mountain first thing in the morning, try again during the hour before closing.
