The Astro Orbitor, also known as the Astro Orbiter, is a rocket spinner attraction located in Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park. The ride was first introduced in 1998, replacing the “Observatron” which was a non-interactive kinetic sculpture.
The Astro Orbitor sends guests spinning into the skies above Tomorrowland in their very own rocket ship. The ride is an exciting journey that allows you to control how high or low your spaceship goes as you orbit around a central monument.
The ride’s design is inspired by retro-futuristic visions of space travel, reminiscent of the golden age of science fiction. The spinning rockets and the central tower adorned with planets create a truly immersive space experience.
Location & Wait Times
The Astro Orbitor is conveniently located at the entrance of Tomorrowland, making it hard to miss as you enter this futuristic part of the park. It can be found right next to the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters attraction.
As for wait times, they can vary depending on the time of day and the season. Generally, the Astro Orbitor is quite popular, especially during peak hours and holidays, so expect some wait time. However, the line usually moves quickly due to the ride’s high capacity.
While waiting in line for the Astro Orbitor, guests are treated to the sights and sounds of Tomorrowland. From the queue, you can watch other rockets whirling around the central tower and hear the exciting music that sets the mood for your upcoming space adventure.
The queue area is outdoor and offers little shade, so it’s a good idea to wear a hat or use sunscreen on sunny days. However, the spectacular views of the ride in action, coupled with the anticipation of your own journey into space, make the wait a part of the overall experience.
So, next time you’re at Disneyland, don’t miss out on your chance to blast off into space with the Astro Orbitor!
