(Disneyland, 2004) When Disneyland’s "Space Mountain" attraction was refurbished in anticipation of the park’s 50th Anniversary, the iconic roller coaster dark-ride received a large-scale animated prop at the top of its main lift hill; a rotating, glow-in-the-dark, 25 foot-wide meteor. This is the original Imagineering study maquette for that addition. Hand-sculpted in foam and featuring a hand-powered mockup of the rotation mechanism intended for the full-scale prop, the model showcases the original color scheme of the final version. Although dimly lit at the park, observant guests can still see the asteroid at the attraction today. Measures approximately 20" tall. Presented in fine condition. This piece is extremely rare, as all original Disney study models are.
