For thrill seekers:

Space Mountain: Mission 2

 

Space Mountain at Disneyland Paris

 

If you love rides, you can’t miss Disney’s iconic Space Mountain! This famous ride has been a fan favourite ever since it opened but has become even more exciting since its recent Star Wars makeover. That’s right, last year Disneyland Paris transformed Space Mountain into the all-new ‘Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain’ in honour of their 25th anniversary. The main parts of the ride are still the same, but there are lots of amazing new Star Wars features.  

Board your space craft and prepare to shoot through an intergalactic tunnel straight into outer space. A 36-metre high cannon launches you into total darkness where stunning shooting stars, comets and soaring meteors are the only source of light. Get ready to blast your way through a swarm of deadly TIE fighters before blowing up a menacing Star Destroyer! You'll hurtle through space at speeds of up to 44mph with an adrenaline inducing futuristic soundtrack blasting in the background. Beware, the only way out of Space Mountain is through a blazing red vortex!
