Space Mountain

Space Mountain is an excellent roller coaster in Tomorrowland and one of the best attractions at Disneyland. The minimum height to ride is 40 inches.

Originally opened in 1977, the Anaheim version of Disney's indoor "wild mouse" coaster ride through space now features an on-ride musical soundtrack, as well as a special Halloween version, "Ghost Galaxy" that runs in October.

Disneyland's Space Mountain also includes a dedicated loading bay for disabled guests, so they can load at their pace. The ride vehicle is on a platform that will eventually be slid into place and take off like other ride vehicles.

When we visited last, the Halloween Ghost Galaxy overlay for Space Mountain was in place, and it was excellent. Essentially, there is a space ghost (not the one from the old Saturday morning cartoons) who chases you throughout the course of the ride. It is a very cool effect. My whole family loved Ghost Galaxy and we rode it several times. I also loved the way the onride music ebbed and flowed with the track layout, and how it swelled whenever the ghost appeared. Many people say the Disneyland version of Space Mountain is better than the Florida version, but both versions are a whole lot of fun, and are different enough that they can mutually coexist. If I was forced to pick one or the other I guess I would give a slight nod to Disneyland's version, but my wife says the opposite. Either way, Space Mountain continues to be a fun and invigorating coaster. Outstanding.

The coaster has multiple versions now, depending on the season. Hyperspace Mountain is the best!

I honestly don't know how this ride could be better, except maybe making it longer or faster or maybe they could find a way to make the photo flash less blinding at the end. Other than that, this is a perfect attraction with great suspense, music, stars, and a fun loading area.
