    Space Mountain at the Magic Kingdom is to be refurbished in September. The dates are:

    • 3 September to 5 September 2013
    • 10 September to 12 September 2013
    • 23 September to 26 September 2013


    Some information has been released that states the refurbishment work will involve trim brakes being added along the track with the aim of reducing the speed during parts of the ride.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    This is the bad thing about going in September, there is always something out for a refurb!

    After riding it last year after it's major refurb, I was disapointed.

    I do feel that they should have taken the oportunity to completely change space mountain. Maybe not with loops and stuff but to make it a little more smooth.

    Interesting that it's not one major shutdown and instead three shorter ones. Good for us though, as it won't be closed the entire time we're there - and it will be back up on our MNSSHP night...

    Im glad it is going to be done in stages. It is one of the very few rides we bother with in MK. We should manage it! Thanks for the info Wendy.

    Baleigh rode it for the first time when she was five She LOVED it so much. I say go for it. The only caveat I would add is if either of your girls are afraid of the dark...might want to reconsider then.
