Zoom Through the Galaxy

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

Navigate a shadowy, neon-lit space station and make your way to a bustling Control Tower, passing a constellation of glowing astronaut training stations along the way. Inside a futuristic launch pad, board a sleek rocket-shaped vehicle and prepare yourself for a high-flying adventure into deep space.

Take Off!
When all systems are “Go,” glide through an energy tunnel pulsating with blinking lights and ascend a 180-foot high mountain. 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 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—an unforgettable first flight in space successfully completed!

Interactive Training

Prepare for your interstellar space journey with challenging new training missions. Located in the space corridor queue area outside the Launch Pad, these videogame-inspired training stations not only test your flight skills, but also demonstrate specific jobs required for those traveling in space.

Training Missions include:

  • Blasting haphazard asteroids
  • Clearing a cluttered runway
  • Moving cargo from one location to another

Easy-to-use illuminated buttons let you control the action. Each mission lasts approximately 90 seconds and can accommodate up to 86 players at a time.

Astronaut Approved

With help from a NASA astronaut, Space Mountain opened in January 1975 at Magic Kingdom park. 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 experience felt like actual space flight. His valuable input has made Space Mountain a favorite for over 35 years.

Today, Space Mountain exists at every Disney Resort around the world.
