At Disneyland in Anaheim, California, guests can experience Hyperspace Mountain, a fast paced roller coaster through the stars, in a galaxy far far away. The classic Space Mountain has been revamped to the backdrop of one of the most successful franchises, Star Wars. In the Disney Parks landmark, Space Mountain, guests are recruited by the Rebel Alliance to fight the evil Galactic Empire.
Guests board their star-fighters two by two, in a six seat car. Instantly, guests are met with a blast of classic Star Wars music, as the Opening Theme plays while guests ascend into Hyperspace Mountain. This ride combines a classic Disneyland attraction, with a brand new overlay that brings together the old and the new.
The ride is quick and dark, making sharp turns and drops at a moments notice. Guests should be sure to be in good health and free from high blood pressure, heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness, or other conditions, before taking up the fight against the Empire. Guests must be 40″ tall to ride Hyperspace Mountain.
The wait for Hyperspace Mountain is generally a long one. Guests who wish to avoid the long wait can use their park ticket to get a Fastpass. The Fastpass distribution is located up the ramp of the mountain to the right of the line entrance. Guests are advised to retrieve Fastpasses as early in the morning as possible.
