Corporate Description: Blast off on a journey into outer space on this classic attraction. Board a sleek, rocket-shaped vehicle in the glow-in-the-dark Space Port and begin a steady climb up the 180-foot high mountain, passing the Mission Control booth and myriad pulsating lights along the way.Once at the top, feel the wind race across your face as you are propelled through the remote blackness of the dark universe—illuminated only by shooting stars, celestial satellites, spinning black holes and shimmering constellations—during a rip-roaring rocket ride through the farthest reaches of time and space.And because the majority of the attraction takes place in the dark, you just never know which way you are going to turn or drop!Space Mountain RocketsSpace Mountain at Magic Kingdom theme park features 2 rocket-shaped vehicles consisting of 3 seats per vehicle that blast off from 2 separate tracks.

Both tracks are nearly identical and mirror each other in twists and drops.The rockets that race through space achieve a maximum speed of 28 miles per hour—but feel much faster in the dark.Space Mountain Post-ShowAfter exiting your rocket-vehicle, you will board a moving runway to the Tomorrowland area, passing scenes of futuristic homes and businesses, as well as television monitors that broadcast your image live along the way.
