This view is no longer possible because of ceilings installed over the loading stations.
These turnarounds are still visible when riding the Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover through Space Mountain when the lights are on.
Space Mountain is an indoor dark outer space-themed steel roller coaster at the Magic Kingdom theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Opened on January 15, 1975, Space Mountain is the oldest operating roller coaster in the state of Florida, and is the original version of the iconic attraction that has since been replicated at all of The Walt Disney Company's Magic Kingdom-style theme parks worldwide, except for the Shanghai Disneyland Resort.
The strobe lights flash at a slower rate, but the frequency rate gradually increases as the train progresses down the tunnel.
Disney decided that a duplicate of Disneyland's Matterhorn was not feasible at the Magic Kingdom, and instead opted to re-visit the Space Mountain project.
Advances in technology since the project's postponement made Space Mountain more feasible, and the ride opened in 1975.
Visitors board the trains in the Space Port, which is enclosed within the mountain itself.
The mountain is hollow and 300 ft in diameter, allowing waiting people aboard the Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover to see many of the different effects used in the attraction.
