Space Mountain is a steel enclosed roller coaster located at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, USA. It has a similar track design that of Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom, Florida. The ride's theme involves space travel from a distant part of the universe back to the home galaxy. During the Halloween season, the ride's theme is changed to "Ghost Galaxy". Space Mountain has an on-ride soundtrack by Michael Giacchino.
When the ride originally opened in 1977, it was the first roller coaster in the world to be completely controlled by computers. Starting in 2003 until 2005, the roller coaster went through major refurbishment which replaced almost everything including props, lines, trains and music. Space Mountain was rebuilt from scratch as well.
In November 16, 2015, Space Mountain received an overlay "Hyperspace Mountain" for the season of force.
Originally, the ride was going to be a clone of the Magic Kingdom version. However, due to space limitations in the park, the ride had to be much smaller in order to fit in the surrounding area.
