On July 16, 2005, the Disneyland version of the attraction Space Mountain reopened after a two-year major refurbishment. This rebuild included replacing the entire track, new special effects, and a completely revamped queue line.

The next major revamp of the attraction would occur in 2015, with the Star Wars-themed overlay called Hyperspace Mountain.
