Wait is that a Bird…. No, it’s a Plane…. No, It’s the Rocket you will use for your mission to Mars…..

This motion simulator ride known as Mission: SPACE, is found in Future World at Epcot. This simulator is the closest someone can get to blasting off into space without leaving Earth. This attraction is for big kids, teens and adults as it realistically mimics what an astronaut might experience during a space flight to Mars. Although there is a 44 inch height restriction, there is a space lab that children under this height restriction can enjoy, and as always there is the child swap for all family members to enjoy the ride.

Mission Space is a multiple-arm centrifuge that spins and tilts with realistic sounds and vivid video images that add to experience. This ride is offered in two versions; Orange Teams will have an exhilarating and intense training of forces up to 2.4G, or opt for the less intense adventure and go for the Green Teams.

Disney has invited you to train for the very first mission to Mars aboard the X-2 Deep Space Shuttle at the International Space Training Center (ISTC) on the 75th anniversary of man’s first mission into space. In the Recruiting Center teams comprised of 4 members are chosen for training.

Each team member is given an on-board position with unique assignments to perform during the mission. The positions include Navigator, Pilot, Commander and Engineer. Before entering the training exercise, trainees will watch an introductory video about the mission.

As you enter the inside of your space capsule sitting side by side with the other members of your team. Riders will feel the rush of take-off as they embark on a thrill-packed training adventure through space to Mars. During the simulation, rocket around the moon, experience a brief period of simulated hyper sleep, and land on the reddened surface of Mars, before blasting back to Earth.

Once you completed your mission take some time and visit the Mission: SPACE Advanced Training Lab. This interactive play space has been designed for Guests of all ages. Astronaut trainees compete in Mission: SPACE Race, or enjoy an arcade-style game where you can explore Mars on foot, or create video postcards that can be sent via e-mail.
