Space Mountain Disney World Speed - Not The Fastest
Other rides in the Magic Kingdom have higher top speeds. For example, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland has a max speed of 35 mph. This is interesting as it feels like Space Mountain is a fast ride that could be comparable in speed to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. However, when thinking about the ride it becomes apparent that it is actually not that fast. Even with its 28 miles per hour speed, Space Mountain is still one of the top rides at the Magic Kingdom. It is definitely a ride everyone can enjoy, if you are not afraid of riding a roller coaster in the dark.
