Slide 1 of 10
Hyperspace Mountain

There’s a Space Mountain roller coaster at both Disney World and Disneyland, but only the latter got a Star Wars makeover. The rocket ship ride now begins with a briefing by Admiral Ackbar, who informs the new pilots that their mission is to survey a Star Destroyer near Jakku (a planet from the newest film). But lo and behold, it’s a trap, and riders are instead dropped into the middle of an X-wing and TIE fighter dogfight. In addition to new Star Wars sound effects, selections from John Williams’ score of the films also plays during the ride.
