Disneyland Paris Update: Hyperspace Mountain Open at DLP Discoveryland - Full Ride Videos !

Disneyland Paris Hyperspace Mountain opened this week-end at Discoveryland and here below is a selection of videos from Max / DLP Welcome , DLP official and ED92. And below, some new pictures from Max, D&M contributor and DLP Welcome webmaster. For pictures of the inside queue, see the previous article below.

A small “private” cast-members-only inauguration of Hyperspace Mountain also happened on May 5th.

Reviews about the ride are mixed. In general people like this Hyperspace Mountain version, may be because it brings something new at DLP, but others are saying that the show is better at DL or HKDL and that a lot of the ride, here at DLP, is in the dark. The thing that everybody like is - no surprise - the addition of John Williams Star Wars music.

According to Max, DLP Hyperspace Mountain is fun, it’s cool, but is not "Wow" as Disney likes to hear it. For connoisseurs of « Space Mountain: Mission 2 », the upgrade in « Hypersapce Mountain » poses problem and the recycling can be noticed. For example the projections of the spaceships are distorded because the projection screens have not been reviewed on the asteroids. All the installations for existing projections were re-used, and only « laser » effects have been created with new lights installations. The effect of this Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain is finally no "Wow" because installations are the same and we have no major surprises. The final effect of « light speed » uses only half of the Red vortex of « Space Mountain: Mission 2 », which offers a very short effect in regards of the speed of the train and don't allow visitors to really enjoy it. Thus, our « Hyperspace Mountain », offers an experience that, for the visitor knowing well Disneyland Paris has few surprises. Why ? Because Space Mountain at Disneyland Paris already had during the ride a theming who is unique and dense and a much more epic track unlike the others Space Mountain in the world. So, to renew itself with a temporary version becomes difficult for Disneyland Paris with a number of possibilities reduced. But with the new trains, the music, the effects, and a new adventure, it allows the visitors to live a unique, interesting and exciting experience during a visit to Disneyland Paris. And for occasional or first visitors, this attraction is for you a must in your visit as well as the new version of Star Tours.

It should be noted that in parallel with the opening of « Hyperspace Mountain », at the Discoverylad Theater « Star Wars : Path of the Jedi » made also his debut on May 7 with a film about 15 minutes long which allows to re-live the cults sequences and what makes Star Wars such mythical films. This new projection is perfect for relaxing but also for fans of this Galaxy very far away.

Talking about Star Wars, you can re-experience the original and now extinct Star Tours ride in this amazing 360-Degree Video as Gregory Noacco - who did last year the awesome recreation of DLP Space Mountain original ride - has recently made his 4K recreation of the original Star Tours available as a 360-degree YouTube video, and it’s a delightful blast from the past.
Important: Watch the video using Chrome or Firefox as 360° videos don't work on Safari.

Max will be back soon with a new DLP update and in the meantime, i remind you that, to celebrate both DLP 25th and D&M 10th anniversaries i've launched the "DLP 25th and D&M 10th Anniversaries Special Offer" for the Disneyland Paris "From Sketch to Reality" book ( De L'Esquisse à la Création en français ) and it's a chance for you to get this gorgeous 320 pages book at the best price ever!

You'll hardly find a better gift for a Disneyland Paris fan so don't miss it as it is the last copies of the book which will not be reprinted!

Note in French for the French readers: Il ne reste que dix exemplaires de cette édition collector française et chaque exemplaire est maintenant au prix de 175 € + 22 € de frais d'envois. Ceux qui ne peuvent pas se permettre le prix de 175 € pour l'édition collector française peuvent m'écrire à: neverlandeditions@gmail.com et je verrais si je peux trouver des exemplaires qui sont légèrement endommagées sur la couverture mais parfait à l'intérieur, et si tel est le cas, le prix sera évidemment moins élevé. Les frais de port de 22€ sont inclus dans le montant total avant le paiement.

The Special Offer is now for the English updated edition ONLY and the English edition is at 60€ / $65 ( instead of 85€ ) and the shipping worldwide is 22€ ( $24 ).  Shipping takes 3-4 days for France, 10-15 days to European countries, 2 to 3 weeks for countries outside Europe. Sorry for what may seem a high shipping cost but the package with the book is heavy ( 2,5 Kgs ) and the French post office also increased its prices. We also ship the books in the best box you've ever seen for a book to make sure they arrive in good condition, and this has a cost.

Usually the Special Offer includes a great additional surprise gift, but because we celebrate two anniversaries, this new special offer will include TWO great surprise gifts ( and believe me, you'll be VERY happy to get them! )!

The new trains are the only thing decent about Hyperspace Mountain. They look rather Steampunk-like and they do meet expectations in terms of comfort.

The rest is just a lazy-looking Star Wars overlay slapped onto a legendary ride. But the upside is that this new theming seems to be easily reversible.
