Space Mountain has been a must-see attraction at Disneyland since it first opened its doors in 1977. It’s an immersive journey into the deepest reaches of the cosmos. As riders embark on this high-speed voyage, they are treated to a sensory experience that combines chilling darkness, breathtaking special effects, and a soaring soundtrack that is synchronized with the ride’s twists and turns.

The adventure begins even before the ride starts. Once strapped into the rocket-shaped vehicle, riders are launched into a hypnotic star tunnel, creating the illusion of being shot into space at warp speed. From there, the roller coaster moves through a series of dips and turns, all while under a mesmerizing canopy of stars and galaxies. The ride culminates in a dramatic re-entry sequence, complete with flashing lights and resonating sound effects.
