Of all of DisneyQuest’s attractions, Cyber Space Mountain certainly was the one I had anticipated the most. Essentially this would have been my dream ride as a kid, designing massive, demonic creations of Roller Coaster Tycoon wishing I could ride them. Well Disney really outdid themselves by creating such a cool concept combining a thrilling coaster simulator with tracks personally built by yourself. Such a concept would certainly be challenging to execute, but this attraction certainly delivers as advertised in typical Disney fashion. Prior to riding, I had heard nightmarish comments regarding the lines for this being quite sizeable. Thankfully lines were nonexistent for this during my visit, which is a definite plus. The creation

Once reaching Cyber Space Mountain, you can choose to either ride a pre-constructed coaster or instead create one of your own. I highly recommend creating your own masterpiece since that way you can add elements that you really want to experience. Guided by Bill Nye, building the coaster is a cinch, using a touch screen and buttons to select a wide variety of generic pieces such as drops, hills, helixes, loops, and standard elements like that. But after each track segment is an option to construct a special piece, which usually is either a fancy inversion or turning maneuver. There is a limit of track though (10,000ft), but there’s plenty of room to make a ride jam-packed with thrills for thrill-seekers, or tame enough for the gentler. Upon finishing my designs, I saved it on a pre-given card and immediately went on over to the simulator section to ride.

There seemed to be a large number of simulators, but again capacity wasn’t really a problem during my visit. Just like the similar attraction I experienced a year before at Krazy City in New York, the simulator was pretty cramped in my opinion and the restraints are very tight, and due to the design of the restraints it can be a tad painful on thighs. However, I became immune to the pain a few seconds after it went down so it really didn’t hamper my ride experience. As for the simulator, the inversions were incredible. They far and away were the best part of the attraction since there was a ton of hang-time and the air effects really made the loops seem just like ones on real roller coasters. However, the other elements such as drops and turns honestly did nothing for me and were pretty boring. Also, I definitely praise the ride on its graphics and they really looked quite nice and gave a really good sense of speed. I only rode this twice, but had a blast both times experiencing my thrilling creations, the Atomic Banshee and the Jolly Trolley, with the latter being my prized creation, a thrilling coaster through space complete with 8 inversions!

Despite how it’s named after my favorite Disney coaster, it just doesn’t compare, but it certainly is a good ride in its own right. I loved how I could design my own coaster and then ride it, but the problem with the simulator in my opinion is that other than inversions, the elements really don’t offer any real thrill. Thrill seekers definitely should utilize inversions any opportunity they get when constructing their coasters since they are the only elements that provide any thrill and excitement. Anyway while really fun and far and away the park’s most thrilling (and only thrilling) attraction, I honestly liked Pirates and Buzz Lightyear better since they were just all-around more enjoyable rides in my opinion. However, this thrilling, hang-time filled attraction is certainly well worth experiencing thanks to its uniqueness.

Cyper space mountian is a create your own roller coaster type simulator. It is a fun ride but, can get a twenty to thrity minute wait. They have many diffrent types of elements mostly based on real ones. Like loopy lava is simalar to a top hat like the ones on Mr. Freeze. If you are looking for something exciting put as many inversions as possible. The drops and curves are boring. The ride is about two minutes there are emergency stop buttons if needed. This probaly the best atrraction in disney quest. Though fun not as good as a real roller coaster.

Excellent attraction that only suffered from a long wait. Building my own coaster was fun and cool as I was able to make it as intense as I wanted. The simulator was cramped, but the loops were great and there actually was some decent Gs in the loops and great hang-time, along with the visuals looking decent as well.

This was actually my first coaster experience. My friend made me put like 8 loops in it or something, but it was way cool. The only thing that sucks about it is when the people before you dont empty their pockets. I got hit in the face with a nickel! REMEMBER TO EMPTY YOUR POCKETS!!!!!

This ride is great, if you build a good coaster its even better! the place where you ride the coaster is a little cramped though. My suggestion to you all -- make your coaster go the medium speed, you get way more hangtime on the loops.

This thing is very cool and actually better than lots of "real" coasters. Best part is you can record your ride and it isnt terribly expensive.

This is my favorite thing in Disney Quest. The only reason it got a 9 is it is very short, and the line is always long as heck.
