Originally introduced in 2015, Hyperspace Mountain takes Space Mountain riders on an adventure into a galaxy far, far away, where they find themselves in the middle of a classic Star Wars-style dogfight between X-Wings and TIE fighters.

Fend off crossfire from swarms of Rebel X-wing starfighters and Imperial TIE fighters amidst an intergalactic onslaught!

Your mission begins with a briefing from Admiral Ackbar—the Rebel Alliance needs help flying reconnaissance vessels to survey an Imperial Star Destroyer. After being escorted into hyperspace by an elite X-wing squadron, you arrive only to find the Star Destroyer waiting with a swarm of TIE fighters—it’s a trap!

As Rebel forces valiantly battle Imperial vessels, you’re caught up in a barrage of blaster fire. Maneuvers become more intense as you join the Rebel squadron for one final, courageous assault on the menacing Star Destroyer. It’s an epic “Star Wars” combat scene taken straight from the films—but hurry, Hyperspace Mountain is only open for a limited time!

According to the Disneyland website and official Disneyland app, Space Mountain will close on April 28th to prepare for the opening of Hyperspace Mountain the following day.

No closing date for Hyperspace Mountain has been announced, but we think the force will be with us at least through May 4th (Star Wars Day) and likely through the end of May for the separately ticketed after-hours event Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite on May 3, 4, and 27, 2022, as well as the Star Wars Celebration fan event at the Anaheim Convention Center on May 26-29, 2022.

Like Space Mountain, Hyperspace Mountain has a 40-inch height requirement. Click here for more information.
