Space Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland opened with the park on April 15, 1983. It was the first version of Space Mountain to open concurrently with the park. As with the other Space Mountains, this version is also highly popular with young adults and roller coaster fans. Along with its Walt Disney World counterpart, it is currently one of the only Space Mountains without an on-board soundtrack.


Versions

1983-2006

From its opening in 1983 and until late 2006, Tokyo Disneyland's Space Mountain was an almost exact clone of Disneyland's Space Mountain as it had opened in 1977. Apart from some outside architectural elements (absence of the Space Stage and Peoplemover track) with the exception of both having the same shape and dimensions, the interior was the same, although there were some different effects (the tractor beam light on the second lift hill changed during the climb, and the re-entry effect was a blue hexagonal pattern). The track layouts, rocket designs, and original special effects and elements were the same as its Californian counterpart. Its Sponsor is Coca Cola and has its own pre-show. 

2007-present

The new Space Mountain has a more sci-fi futuristic look to it, there are new effects, new station which features a futuristic space ship hanging from the ceiling. The ride has changed but the effects are built on top the original ride effects. Like its California counterpart, it now includes a hyperspeed tunnel at the end of the ride. Ever since 2009 for the Holiday season, The exterior at night became a light show while playing Christmas music in the background but the actual ride remains unchanged. The Sponsor is unchanged but the logo & pre-show are.
