Space Mountain

Blast off on a speeding rocket through the darkest reaches of outer space.

Zoom Through the Galaxy

Race through the cosmos to the edge of the galaxy and back!

Navigate through a futuristic, glowing space station as you make your way to Mission Control, home of the launch pad for your journey to the farthest realms of space. Upon your arrival, board a sleek rocket-shaped vehicle and prepare yourself for a high-flying adventure into the unknown.

Take Off!

When all systems are "Go," glide through a power generation room pulsating with lights and—after the airlock is activated—ascend a shadowy ramp. At the top, launch into the remote blackness of the dark universe, the mysterious sounds of space and galactic music filling the void.

Journey in Space

Whiz past shooting stars and celestial satellites during your thrilling space ride. Behold streaking orbs of light, wayward comets and migrant meteors. Dip and careen into the inky blackness—the wind racing across your face—as futuristic Starry-O-Phonic Sounds echo all around you. Feel the push and pull of gravity as you soar into a swirling wormhole for re-entry. You've successfully completed an unforgettable first flight in space!

Astronaut Approved

With help from a NASA astronaut, Space Mountain opened in Disneyland Park on May 27, 1977. The idea originated with Walt Disney in the 1960s, but the technology did not exist to bring his vision to life.

Later, when the attraction was given the green light, Mercury 9 and Gemini 5 astronaut Gordon Cooper joined the Space Mountain creative team as a consultant. He wanted to make sure that the attraction incorporated information gleaned during NASA's early space missions and that the overall experience would give Guests a realistic feeling of actual space flight.

Thanks in part to Gordon Cooper's valuable input, Space Mountain has remained a favorite attraction since its interstellar debut 40 years ago.

Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy

Space Mountain has transformed into Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. Space Mountain is expected to reopen November 2, 2017.
