Check out this disturbing video of a Guest jumping on a Space Mountain prop.
One of my (Monica) favorite rides at Magic Kingdom is Space Mountain. Located in Tomorrowland, you blast off on a rocket into outer space to a futuristic soundtrack.
Here’s a quick history lesson for you. Walt Disney originally came up with the idea for a space themed roller coaster for Disneyland. However, it never came to fruition. When Disney World opened in 1971, there were no thrill rides in the park. Disney wanted something that would appeal to more people so the concept for a space themed roller coaster came back to life.
Space Mountain opened on January 15, 1975, and it has been thrilling Guests ever since!
However, one Disney Guest took her love for Space Mountain a bit too far. If you are not familiar with the layout of the attraction, you have a very far walk to the loading area and again after you get off. It feels like miles of walking to get to the Tomorrowland gift shop.
Throughout that exit walk, Guests are treated to various futuristic scenes. One such scene features props including a table and television. It is supposed to mimic what the future looked like back when the attraction was built.
In the video posted on TikTok, user @embleier shared the only reason she rides Space Mountain is to climb over the handrails, over the barrier, and into the scene described above. You can see she then sits on the actual table in this restricted area.
Messing with any attraction props is a major no-no and could get you in very serious trouble. One commenter on the video stated they forwarded the video along to Cast Members at Disney, while others said we will soon see a plexiglass divider on this staged area. Many comments tagged Disney Parks official TikTok channel, so we assume someone over there is aware of the incident.
Here is your reminder to not mess with attraction props, and be sure to talk to a Cast Member if you see something.
