Space Mountain is one of The Walt Disney Company’s most iconic and recognizable attractions. Found in every Disney Resort, except Shanghai Disneyland, across the globe, the attraction sees Guests taking off in a space-themed vehicle for a thrilling dark-ride experience. While the classic Space Mountain can be found throughout the world, the version at Disneyland Paris has been Star Wars-themed for quite some time.

Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain located in Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris is Space Mountain with a Star Wars overlay. From Star Destroyers to TIE Fighters, X-Wings to the thrilling John Williams score, Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain is described as “a jaw-dropping experience fit for the most fervent followers of the Force.”

Being one of Disneyland Park’s e-ticket attractions, Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain is naturally one of the most popular rides at Disneyland Paris. However, this week the attraction will go dark, with Guests unable to ride for five days.

Per the Disneyland Paris renovation calendar, it can be seen that Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain is among one of the attractions closed for refurbishment this week. The website lists the ride as unavailable from Monday, January 9, through Friday, January 13 “as part of [Disneyland Paris’s] continued efforts to exceed the expectations of Guests.”

When the attraction reopens for Guests this coming weekend, it will surely be busy. Disneyland Paris offers a similar paid-for service to the United States Parks’ Disney Genie+. Disney Premier Access One and Disney Premier Access Ultimate allow Guests to purchase quicker access to one or all of the listed attractions. As well as Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain, Disneyland Park also offers rides like Big Thunder Mountain and Peter Pan’s Flight, while Walt Disney Studios Park’s selection includes Avengers Assemble: Flight Force and Spider-Man W.E.B. Adventure at the Disney Park’s new Avengers Campus.
