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.

From the horn solo as you enter the queue to the Horizons butler in the exit, this ride is pure WDW nostalgia and excitement for me. My favorite ride at WDW, hands UP!

The best ride in the Magic Kingdom.

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

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
