Space Mountain reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Space Mountain, a roller coaster in Tomorrowland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. (The minimum height to ride is 44 inches.)
Written by Robert Niles
Guests board sleek rocket trains with single-file seating and blast off on an adventure through space in this indoor roller coaster. The ride was refurbished in 2010 and now offers some additional on-ride effects, as well as games in the queue to help you pass the time while you await your "flight." Space Mountain is not a fast coaster — the top speed is only around 28 mph — but it is twisty, with over 3 Gs in lateral forces on some whippy turns.
The best ride in the Magic Kingdom. - Emily Kramer
honestly one of the best roller coasters at disney !! Mild but wild 10/10 - Owen Scott
As a Disneyland veteran, I was curious to see how this ride compared to its Anaheim counterpart. I found it to be very disappointing and mediocre at best. The ride was rough and uncomfortable, boring, and lacked an on-board audio soundtrack. This ride is rubbish without a soundtrack and did not live up to the hype. 4/10 - Garrett Monteiro
No drops and no speed. Not my kind of ride. There are better themed indoor coasters in Orlando. Take Revenge of the Mummy for example. ROTM is very smooth, it goes about 45 mph, has a awesome launch, and the wait is never as long because there are never crying children holing up the line. SM is rough, goes about 27 mph, has no drops or launches, and the wait is always long because of crying children are holing up the line. 4/10 - Jaiden Cohen
This is my least favorite of the 3 versions I have been on; Paris, Disneyland, and here. It was a bit of a rough ride for a steel coaster. - Jeff Krinock
I love this ride. Having not ridden the Disneyland counterpart I have no ability to compare, but this attraction has always been great. The dark environment means that it feels less like a tinny coaster and more like a space travel experience. It's great! 9/10. - Nick McKaig
