Space Mountain: Mission 2

An extravagant version of Space Mountain had been planned since the inception of the Euro Disney Resort, but was reserved for a revival of public interest.

Located in Discoveryland, the park's alternative for Tomorrowland, this Space Mountain was originally designed as a view on space travel from a Jules Verne-era perspective, based on the novel From the Earth to the Moon.

Paris' version of Space Mountain is the fastest of the five versions of the ride, the only one to include inversions, and also the only one to feature a portion of track outside the mountain itself (that being the station and the launch Cannon).

 

 

The $89.7 million attraction features a 1.5G uphill catapult launch at 42 mph (68 km/h), and three inversions (sidewinder, corkscrew, and cutback).

Space Mountain's first audio track was composed by Steven Bramson, primarily based on film scores by John Williams and the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea score.

Moreover, in order to create a proper Victorian atmosphere in the queueline and around the building, a musical loop was created by selecting several themes from movies such as Krull, The Rocketeer, Always or Christopher Columbus: The Discovery.

From 1995 to 2005, the ride was known as Space Mountain: De la Terre à la Lune.
