Space Mountain

April 24, 2011

Space mountain is an indoor coaster at The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida. It is probably the most legendary coaster not to make it into my most legendary list (although it is actually two coasters inside of the same building).

The ride experience starts with the line which snakes through the building. Like most Disney rides, Space Mountain has highly elaborate theming. The line looks like the inside of a spaceship with 3D planets outside windows, and maybe an alien or two. When you reach your car you sit single file with a riders siting in front of each other. The first part of the ride is a long tunnel with loud noises and strobe lights. The lift hill is next to a huge spaceship that has a few astronauts on spacewalks. Once the cars reach the top of the lift hill there is no slowing down. The designers made the ride so that it would have tight turns while moving at high speeds. The ride is inside of a dome that has meteors and stars projected on it, this really helps with the effect of the ride because you feel like you are moving a lot faster than you actually are. there is one more tunnel with more strobe lights before you finish your ride. However as you exit there are a whole lot of moving pathways that ride past different planets and galaxies.

Space Mountain has tons of theming (although not as much as Expedition Everest) and is a fun ride. I am giving it a 7 out of 10.

Have you been on Space Mountain? What do you think? Please comment. Thanks for reading 🙂
