Orange Team Version
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be launched into space? Mission:Space uses centrifuges similar to those that NASA trains their astronauts with to give guests a realistic simulation of space flight. Riders on Mission: SPACE feel tremendous G-forces as they hurtle through our solar system towards Mars. It’s an intense journey most guests won’t soon forget.
Green Team Version
For those who are prone to motion sickness or wish for a less intense experience, there’s an alternate version of Mission: Space which does not spin. This version is more similar to Star Tours in intensity.
There is a 44″ height requirement for this ride.
When to Visit
Mission: SPACE is quite popular and can develop long lines during the midday (11:00 a.m – 4:30 p.m).
Mission: SPACE is the third most valuable FASTPASS in Epcot, after Soarin’ and Test Track. Because of the high capacity of the attraction, Mission: SPACE does not run out of FASTPASS until early evening most days.
Disney World Facts
- This attraction is very loosely based on the film Mission to Mars and even features one of the actors from that film, Gary Sinise.
- Disney veterans may recognize the logo from Horizons in the center of the rotating space station in the queue. Horizons was the attraction replaced by Mission: SPACE.
- The ride holds the distinction of being the only Walt Disney World attraction with motion sickness bags.
