Hyperspace Mountain entrance signage installed to online consternation

Discoveryland took another diversion away from its visionary beginnings last week with the first pieces of entrance signage installed for Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain: Rebel Mission — to dismay from the majority of fans and visitors online.

The logo replaces the Space Mountain: Mission 2 signage on the same turquoise marquee, and before that the original Space Mountain attraction title (and even, for a short while, the initial Discovery Mountain name).

Even for those anticipating a Star Wars visual style being applied outside this Victorian-inspired building, that no attempt whatsoever has been made to apply the Hyperspace Mountain title in a more fitting way came as a shock.

The logo has been lifted cleanly from its Californian cousin, where it sits in a more modern, white futuristic Tomorrowland, and applied as 3D letters with its “lightspeed” effect inside a black outline and grey background.

Compared to Paris’ earlier marquees, the design is disappointingly simplistic and clearly out-of-place with its immediate surroundings.

Some useful photos featured here by DLP Welcome show how the new, possibly unfinished, marquee sits both outside the attraction and within this wider area of Discoveryland, directly opposite Orbitron and the Hyperion Airship.

Although more elements could yet be added, the signage doesn’t yet feature either the “Star Wars” or “Rebel Mission” of its extended title.

Disneyland Paris fans and visitors on Twitter were overwhelmingly negative about the installation.

An opening date has still not been announced for the reworked Disneyland Park attraction, although refurbishment schedules now suggest Sunday, 7th May 2017. The signage has appeared surprisingly early in its four month conversion.
