Space Mountain is a steel enclosed roller coaster located at the Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA.


Originally, there was a concept of a Space Voyage for Disneyland, which would feature four tracks. However, due to space limitations, no such concept came to life. But then, there were intentions for a clone of the Matterhorn Bobsleds, but due to space limitations, the designers went back to the Space Voyage concept. The concept that was eventually approved of featured two tracks that were near-identical.


30 trains with 2 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged inline in 3 rows, for a total of 6 riders per train.
