PHOTOS, VIDEO: New Space Mountain Exit Opens, Speedramps Removed at the Magic Kingdom

We covered some Space Mountain construction walls back in September as the speed ramp finale and exit of Space Mountain had been closed off since June. Guests exiting Space Mountain were routed backstage via a temporary bridge that gave a glimpse of TRON construction next door and then guided over the Walt Disney World Railroad tracks.

Well, the work has been completed…

The early exit scenes remain the same, although lighting was altered. The big change is the removal of all of the speed ramps that carried guests back to Tomorrowland. You now have to walk all the way out with your own leg power.

The former ambient lighting in this hallway is gone, it is now very bright.

Guests can still peer into space though…

The ramp at the end of the tunnel that used to go up to the Tomorrowland Light and Power Co. was completely blown out (you know, the scene with the monitors that guests would appear on, transporting them to other worlds), and replaced with an expanded room that utilizes some space that the long-closed portions of the arcade took up.

This pit could use some plastic balls…

Here’s the short video of an Instagram that broke the news to many…

What do you think about the new Space Mountain exit? Will it delay your plans for launch?

UPDATE: Full video tour added below.

  1. Let the homogenization continue! Looks like a hotel lobby in Berlin…….I don’t know who these Euro-designers are but it’s about time for Gaston to break out the pitchforks and torches, this is horrible!

  2. Aw shoot! They must have done this just after hubby and i got,off the ride. We went around 10 am and we exited out the back.

  3. I really hope you weren’t complaining about walking those few steps. I have MS and I have not been able to walk for years, so when I hear people complaining about walking off of a fun ride, it really gets under my skin.

  4. Well, it’s bright and pretty, but the last thing that this 60 year old lady with an adult disabled child needs is another long uphill ramp that I need to push a wheelchair up.

  5. I never knew how long it was around to the exit until last week. What’s a few more steps between friends?#stepgoals

  6. I feel like they could have done more with that hallway. Right now it look like the lobby of a Marriot Courtyard.

  7. Boo! No more exit over the tracks! I loved getting photos of the train (was fun while it lasted, and I have FREE souvenirs and momentos, though!)
