Guests can blast off once again on an intergalactic adventure on the classic Space Mountain attraction. Just days after the roller coaster marked its 40th anniversary in Disneyland® Park’s Tomorrowland® area, the Star Wars-themed Hyperspace Mountain version of the attraction closed with X-wings and TIE fighters giving way to the high-speed thrill ride’s classic configuration. The Star Wars-themed Hyperspace Mountain had been running since Season of the Force began in November 2015.
The first Space Mountain attraction opened at Magic Kingdom® Park at Walt Disney World® Resort in 1975; the Disneyland® attraction opened two years later. The classic Space Mountain is a longtime guest favorite, inspiring other versions of the attraction at Disney parks around the world and spawning many special themed versions, such as the Halloween-themed Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy.
