Space Mountain Mission 2
Space Mountain Mission 2 is situated in Discoveryland area of Disneyland Paris. This is an iconic building which dominates the whole of Discoveryland. Space Mountain Mission 2 is a part indoor, part outdoor steel rollercoaster based on Jules Verne’s classic 1865 novel “From The Earth To The Moon”.
Unlike other versions around the world, the Disneyland Paris version of Space Mountain Mission 2 is the only one to feature inversions & a portion of track outside the building. This was also the very first rollercoaster to feature a synchronised on-ride audio soundtrack. Space Mountain Mission 2 at DLP is also the fastest of all versions & has a 1.5G uphill launch at a 32° angle which reaches 40mph before taking you through the ride featuring 3 inversions (a corkscrew, a cutback & a sidewinder).
The launch itself actually occurs in the “Colombiad Cannon” (36 metres long) which is perched outside of the mountain itself with special lighting & smoke effects. Passengers are then propelled through space dodging asteroids, comets & planets along the way. There are flashing lights & a “wormhole” to traverse before passing by the final destination of the moon & returning home to safety.
