Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, Tokyo Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris all have a version of the attraction, and each one is spectacular in its own way.
Unfortunately, the beloved and iconic roller coaster ride recently faced an unprecedented mishap, causing panic and concern among visitors. The incident occurred at Disneyland Park located in Anaheim, California, where Space Mountain unexpectedly derailed, leaving many riders shaken from the incident.
Nightmare at Disney
Disney theme parks pride themselves on having something to offer every Guest who walks through their gates. Whether you are looking for delicious food, incredible character interactions, or thrilling rides, Disney has something for everyone. While Disney does offer some fast and scary roller coasters, they realize that these attractions are not for everyone. For many fans, the irrational fear of a track coming derailed is the biggest deterrent when it comes to riding roller coasters.
Unfortunately, this nightmare became a reality for fans, according to one recent TikTok video.
