Is Ravensburger’s Disney Space Mountain Game Worth the Purchase?
Spoiler Alert: It’s an All Systems Go from us.
“You are good for launch in T-minus 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… liftoff!" Hold on tight, because Ravensburger’s new Space Mountain game has launched you and your fellow space cadets straight out of this atmosphere and into a galaxy that contains all five Space Mountain attractions.
The objective of the game is for players to travel through space to complete missions and visit each of the five starports. The player who last rode Space Mountain goes first and serves as the activator of the round. The activator shoots the dice down the launch bay and play begins! Players move their rocket around the board according to the dice roll to try to mark off their missions without running out of fuel. The first player to complete missions A-E in order and visit all five star ports wins the game!
Gameplay is made for two to four players ages 8+ and takes about 20-40 minutes. The first time my family played it took a little bit longer to get the hang of the piece movements, but once we learned how to play, the pace quickened and we were able to strategize our movements. While there is a bit of strategy involved, there's also a decent amount of luck placed on the dice and gamble for risk of running out of fuel.
We are all 21+ and thoroughly enjoyed this game. We have also played Ravensburger’s Jungle Cruise and prefer the game play and objective of Space Mountain. It is faster paced with less rules, which is fitting as Jungle Cruise as an attraction is more story-based and Space Mountain as an attraction is more thrilling.
