Exciting transformation is on the horizon for Tokyo Disneyland as Disney prepares to revamp one of its most iconic rides. While the Disney parks are filled with attractions that have become cultural landmarks, some are about to undergo thrilling changes.

Tokyo Disneyland’s Space Mountain, beloved by fans since its debut, is set to close permanently this July. It’s making way for a groundbreaking new version, rumored to be named “Space Mountain: Earthrise.” This new attraction promises not only an exterior overhaul but also an entirely fresh and exhilarating ride experience. Concept artworks reveal a sleek, futuristic design, although Disney and Tokyo Disney Resort’s operator, The Oriental Land Company, have kept the details under wraps.

Recent images from the construction site hint at what might be the most intense ride in the park’s history. According to reports, the new track features a twist rotation that could redefine the traditional Disney roller coaster experience. Walt Disney Imagineering Producer Kathleen Davis has mentioned that it will be “a roller coaster with both thrill and heart,” intertwining emotional storytelling with an adrenaline-pumping ride.

Earlier changes in the park have included the likes of “it’s a small world,” which will receive a Marvel-themed update in 2025, showcasing characters like Baby Groot. And let’s not forget the transformation of Splash Mountain into an attraction inspired by “The Princess and the Frog,” demonstrating Disney’s readiness to evolve beloved classics for new generations.

As construction progresses, fans have a unique opportunity to say their goodbyes to the existing Space Mountain through a special lottery system. It’s a bittersweet farewell to a cherished ride, but the promise of something even more thrilling looms on the horizon.
