First Track Piece of Space Mountain Arrives, Teases Innovative NEW Disney Roller Coaster

The first section of coaster track for the new Space Mountain at Tokyo Disneyland has arrived on site.

Crews at Tokyo Disneyland received the first piece of track, as seen in our photos from April 18. The section appears to be a portion of drop track manufactured by Intamin — a popular roller coaster company behind other Disney rides, including Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril at Disneyland Paris, the Incredicoaster at Disney California Adventure, and more.

Original rumors indicated that the new Space Mountain in Tokyo might resemble Guardians of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT, but that ride was made by Vekoma, so Space Mountain is likely to be a new ride concept rather than a similar system.

The new Space Mountain will cost about ¥56 billion ($437 million) and retain the sponsorship by Coca-Cola. It’s expected to open in 2027.
