What is it about Space Mountain that continues to excite Disney theme park guests decade after decade? Be it the original in Walt Disney World, Disneyland, or newer versions in the Magic Kingdoms of Tokyo, Paris, and Hong Kong, the fan base continues to grow.
Iconic and timeless in its design, Space Mountain thrills Disney park visitors, becoming a rite of passage of sorts for younger guests who have "matured" to the next level of accessible attractions.
When you queue up, the first thing you notice is the variety of ages and stages of life represented. One thing is in common: everyone loves the ability to blast off into outer space for an adventure only Disney Imagineering can provide. The allure is as powerful as Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, or a host of other classics.
