Space Mountain reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Space Mountain, a roller coaster at Tokyo Disneyland. (The minimum height to ride is 40 inches.)
Written by John Quinteros
Tokyo Disneyland's Space Mountain is an exact clone of the Space Mountain at Disneyland prior to the 2002-2005 refurbishment, sans the music. The track layout and queue line is the same as California's.
However, the attraction was given a refurbishment from October 2006-Apirl 2007. The ride reopened with new rockets, new effects, redesigned queue, and much more. The ride still does not have a sound system.
Great ride! And you actually hop on a conveyor when you enter the main show building. The line were extremely long considering being the Golden Week, but the interior was a little more modern than the one in Disneyland. The loading station is darker, gloomier, and the spaceship hanging above is a different one. The lift hill portion of the ride is slightly different as well. Rather than light tunnel it is filled with lightning, and it could just be me, but the stars seemed shinier at the Tokyo version. The track layout are almost identical. But the downside to me was the Disneyland version sound track wasn't playing, which could really make the ride experience lot more thrilling. But still, great ride! - Jeremy Hu
