Mission: SPACE, a motion simulator ride at Epcot theme park, is as close as you can
get to blasting off into space without leaving Earth. This attraction for big kids, teens
and adults realistically mimics what an astronaut might experience during a space flight
to Mars.

Each member of your astronaut team has a challenging role in a dynamic and daring
cosmic mission dodging meteors and navigating nebulae. Mission: SPACE is available
in 2 versions—select the Orange Team for exhilarating and intense training or opt for
the Green Team and have a less intense galactic adventure.

Pre-Show for Mission: SPACE

You are invited 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. Make your way to the Recruiting Center where you will choose
a team—comprised of 4 members—for training.

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

The Journey to Mars

After the mission briefing, make your way inside the space capsule—sitting side by side
with the other members of your team. Feel the rush of take-off as you embark on a
thrill-packed training adventure through space to Mars.

During the simulation, rocket around the moon, experience a brief period of simulated
hypersleep, and land on the reddened surface of Mars, before blasting back to Earth.

Select the Orange Team or the Green Team

Mission: SPACE utilizes a multiple-arm centrifuge that spins and tilts to simulate the
illusion of speed and gravitational forces. Realistic sounds from overhead and vivid
video images only add to the experience of the simulation.

As an astronaut in training, you are given the choice to be a part of the Orange Team
or the Green Team.

The Orange Team is a more intense training session and is the original version of the
attraction, where you will experience forces up to 2.4G—more than twice the force of
the Earth's gravitational pull.

The Green Team has a less intense experience. You do not feel forces up to 2.4G when
choosing this option. If you are prone to motion sickness, you should opt for the Green Team.

Post-Show of Mission: SPACE

After the attraction, visit the Mission: SPACE Advanced Training Lab, an interactive
play space for Guests of all ages where you can compete in Mission: SPACE Race,
enjoy an arcade-style game where you can explore Mars on foot, or create video postcards that can be sent via e-mail.
