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.

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

This coaster is world famous but exactly why I don't know because on the other side of the park site the better, "Big Thunder Mountain Railroad" coaster. Space Mountain is still a must, but it shouldn't be your end all, be all ride at Magic Kingdom (8/10) - Randy Miller
