Soaring high above Tomorrowland, the rockets of Astro Orbiter take guests on a trip in machine-age rocket ships. Looking more like a Buck Rogers toy than a modern space vehicle, the aerial adventure surrounds passengers with whirling planets during a swing through space in the center of Tomorrowland. Great views can be seen both day and night as you control how high or low you want your 2-seater rocket to go.

Tips & Fun Facts

Astro Orbiter is best visited when the sun goes down, when the view is much more riveting.
If you're not a fan of heights then its maybe one to pass on, the rockets can go quite high when fully elevated.
Larger built guests might encounter problems entering or getting comfortable in the rockets due to their rather restrictive seating size.

The rockets travel at 11 revolutions per minute.
Astro Orbiter was formerly 'Star Jets' but was changed during tomorrowland's extensive rehab in the early 1990's.
The first Astro Orbiter opened at Disneyland Paris.

Additional Information

Guests must be able to transfer from wheelchairs to board the attraction.
