Magic Kingdom opened to Guests at 9 a.m. this morning, but without one of its fan-favorite rides — Space Mountain. We are unsure as to why the ride is non-operable, but it seems that the issues are quite serious considering it has been closed for nearly five hours.

WDW Stats on Twitter shared that Space Mountain was non-operable even before the Park officially opened:

Space Mountain has been temporarily interrupted. On average, an interruption takes 38 minutes. http://wdwst.at/detail/80010190 #SpaceMountain #MagicKingdom #WDW #WaltDisneyWorld #DisneyWorld

Space Mountain is one of the most popular rides in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Located in Tomorrowland, this indoor roller coaster takes Guests on a journey into space as they zoom past stars, planets, and more.

Walt Disney World describes this Tomorrowland attraction as:

Blast off on a rip-roaring rocket into the furthest reaches of outer space on this roller-coaster ride in the dark.

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!
