Located in Magic Kingdom theme park’s Tomorrowland area, the iconic Disney Parks thrill ride is officially described as:

Dip and careen into the inky blackness as a futuristic soundtrack echoes all around you. Fly past shooting stars and celestial satellites. Roar past streaking orbs of light, wayward comets and migrant meteors. Feel the pull of gravity as you’re drawn into a swirling wormhole!
Just after today’s park close at 8:01 p.m. — Magic Kingdom closed at 8 p.m. this evening — Twitter’s WDW Stats noted:
Space Mountain has been closed after an interruption of 705 minutes.

Another Twitter user, Beflamed, shared this regarding the lengthy ride closure:

Unfortunately, I’m not gonna be able to go on Space Mountain because it’s been closed all day. I’m probably not gonna be able to go on Pooh or Little Mermaid due to time restrictions (park closes in an hour and I also have to do Small World and Peter Pan).

At 10:24 a.m. Joshua posted that two major Magic Kingdom attractions were not operational:

Space Mountain and Splash Mountain are both down
