Space Mountain: Mission 2


“Exploronauts” will find themselves speeding well beyond the moon towards the far reaches of the universe.  The Columbiad cannon that blasts guests in to orbit has been enhanced and constant acceleration with a G-force of nearly 1.3 N ensures they reach outer space almost immediately following a brief moment of near weightlessness.

Their mission will be to explore the farthest reaches of space, to go where no one has gone before and discover the mysteries at the edge of the universe.  Along the way, they will encounter an asteroid belt, comets and a magnificent supernova. These thrilling adventures will deflect the frenzied route of the spacecraft, resulting in unexpected twists, turns, spins and loops. and meteors and the supernova explosion

The high speed journey is accompanied by a soundtrack that could be straight out of a major science-fiction film. Completely synchronised to the “story”, the music is an essential part of this new mission, accentuating all the special effects and, in particular, reinforcing the dramatic nature of the situation when the spacecraft is confronted with the supernova explosion.  All passenger vehicles are now equipped with five loudspeakers, one on each side of the head, two around the hips and one on foot level, to offer an optimal aural experience

Unlike SpaceMountain - where the trip takes place in the dark - SpaceMountain: Mission 2 is based on the extensive use of visual effects.  In addition to the large amount of lighting effects used to develop the story, Disney’s Imagineers have added projections of star fields to give visitors the immediate impression of being in space, as well as new projections of comets.
