This attraction offers guests a one-of-a-kind experience. Mission Space launches visitors into a simulated space adventure with a pulse-pounding liftoff followed by the sensation of weightlessness in outer space.
The ride begins with the launch countdown, and they throw in some psychological effects that help build the tension you might experience before a launch. As the countdown approaches, the seats tilt back into the launch position of facing the sky on your back. At lift off you feel the engines roar and blast off. The ride creates large G Forces, and a tremendous feeling of increasing speed as the craft escapes the Earth’s gravitational pull. As the flight continues there is a simulated feeling of weightlessness. Each member of the four people in the vehicle has a mission to accomplish during the simulated flight to Mars. Each mission’s outcome depends on how well the team performs during the flight.
Guests must transfer out of their wheelchair/ECVs for this attraction. Video captioning is available. Due to the nature of the experience, Guests with service animals are not permitted on this attraction.
Mission: SPACE Tips!
There are plenty of intensity warnings before you get on the ride. When you experience this attraction, you need to keep your head back and keep your eyes focused on the video screen in front of you at all times. If you turn your head away from the screen or close your eyes, you can become disoriented and may develop motion sickness.
You have the option of choosing a less intense experience.
You can choose to bypass the centrifuge (spinning action) of Mission SPACE. Just let the Cast Member know which version you prefer and you’ll be directed to the appropriate queue.
