    Hi will be taking my 6 year old daughter to disney in may 2010. She wants to ride space mountain and I was wondering if anyone would tell me it this ride does flips or corkscrews? I dont know anything about the track layout and dont want to make her sick

    Hi Shannon, Sounds like you have a little thrill-seeker like my  7 year old girl. :)

    Space Mountain is an exciting roller coaster. The minimum height requirement for it is 44 inches, so to avoid disappointment be sure she measures up ahead of time. Don't worry, there aren't any flips, loops or corkscrews on this ride. There are several big "dips", but that's it. In fact, the highest speed Space Mountain reaches is 28 miles per hour, it just feels much faster in the dark. My daughter rode it with her hands in the air, and begged to go right back on it :)

    If your daughter is at least 44 inches, she will also be able to ride Expedition Everest at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. After 3 times in a row, I had to pry my little girl away from it.

    Hope this helps and that you have a Magical Vacation!
