Rockets will no longer be in hyperspace on Space Mountain at Disneyland.

The Disneyland Resort announced on its Parks Blog that the "Star Wars"-themed version of the ride would disappear into hyperspace at the end of May, returning to the "classic" Space Mountain.

"Hyperspace Mountain," based on the "Star Wars" movies, has been running since November 2015. During the Halloween season, the ride also receives an overlay called "Ghost Galaxy."

Space Mountain opened in 1977, and turns 40 at the end of May. The "rockets" (really roller coaster vehicles) hold up to 12 people at a time, and after going up three lifts, careens around banked turns while seeing projections of stars and space vehicles.

At the end of the ride, when reaching the highest speeds, riders slow down through a re-entry tunnel designed to emulate the heat astronauts feel when their space capsules re-enter the atmosphere.

The classic version returns June 1, 2017.
