    How fast do they go?

    So, I don't know if this has been asked before (sorry, didn't bother to do a search) but here goes....

    How fast (in MPH) do the trains of all the coasters in DL go? Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, and Matterhorn, etc. Just wanting some fun facts to tell the kids.

    I would wish that Space Mountain would go at least 50 mph. Now that's even better. But they would have to make the mountain wider, not taller. Also replace the whole the track for the speed.

    I just found this out a few months ago myself but California Screamin' has 6072 feet of track, good enough for 8th most of any roller coaster in the world.

    Of course, those are daytime speeds. Everyone knows they turn up the speed on the Matterhorn and Thunder Mountain at night!

    That doesn't sound expensive...

    Funny how all these well besides Screamin, dont go very fast but are very popular and classics! Goes to show that Walt knew what he was doing all along

    There was a video in the BSC that said RSR is going to go about 11x faster than Autopia. And I'm pretty sure Autopia goes faster than 3 mph.

    Doesn't Splash Mountain top out at 55mph at the bottom of the drop as well?

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Dont they have "fans" inside of space to simulate you going something like 80mph? As well as in IJA its simulated something like 60mph? Maybe im wrong here

    I know for a fact that there are no wind machines in IJA.

    Well, that seems about right, 30 is an average guess, since it travels at different speeds. It won't go nearly as fast as test track though, since there aren't any straight-aways and you've got to negotiate the steep bank turns around Willy's butte, etc.
