opened at Disneyland, California in 1977.

At 5 years old it was the first time Loid was ever truly afraid.

To better understand this primal fear Loid created a Computer–Simulation.

SPACE MOUNTAIN

simulation v2005



“Towering above Tomorrowland

are the futuristic peaks of

Space Mountain

Inside, Disneyland astronauts experience the thrill of a twisting speeding journey past the stars and unexplored galaxies.

Bursting though a cosmic vapor curtain...

into the deep dark void of super space.

Where time is non existent...

and distances are spanned at infinite speeds.”
