 Review of Mission: Space (Orange) @ EPCOT
1 Rating Posted by: DmctNY8 on 8/30/2004 5:09:00 PM
Im sorry but I didnt like this ride much. This ride is well themed, but thats it. For me this ride wasnt as intese as others claimed. *****Spoiler***** In addition this ride is not a simulation at all. On my third ride I didnt push any of the buttons and steered the rocket the wrong way and the mission was still accomplished. In addition this is the only ride where the bad thing doesnt really happen. The ground cracks the cliff is below and you are about to fall in, and ... MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!. WHAT?!?!?!?! Every other ride the rocket would fall into the cliff or something. Did Disney really spend $125 Million dollars on this. For that ammount I bet Disney could build 125 Rio Del Tiempos for that, and I liked that ride better.

Im so impressed that you like Rio Del Tiempo, Dmct - thats a truly underappreciated ride in my book. Its the only link to If You Had Wings (one of my all-time favorites) I have left!!!

Well to say I liked Rio Del Tiempo, I guess would be true, but I wouldnt say I loved that ride.

So you really thought you had lifted off. And I guess you thought you were in outer space with Space Mountain. It is an attraction. Go to Cape Canaveral if you want the real thing

I think you are confused, I didnt think the ride was "real". My point was that the ride wasnt really a smilulation but instead a movie. I think if you are going to bother expecting people to push buttons that the buttons should actually do something. As I said this ride just didnt do anything for me. As my review implied, this ride was a waste of money. Thinking in terms of my new favorite coaster, El Toro, Disney could have build an incredible themed version of that 25 million dollar ride, doubled capacity was dueling tracks and still come out well below the 125 million they spent. Im sorry I dont get the point of Mission:Space (though not as much as I dont understand the green side).

the point of Mission: Space is that its an intense thrill ride, and the most intense motion simulator ever created. The simulation is that you are in a centrifuge, using similar equipment that astronauts use in training. If they really allowed people to fail the mission, then how would that work? *30 seconds into the ride* "Sorry, you failed. Get out now." ... it wouldnt work. I dont know how you can give this a 3.

How about giving out a score at the end of the ride on a printout or something like that? Im going to Orlando again this summer so maybe my opinion will change, but as I see it now, I spin around in circles watching a lame movie. On a rotor (floor drops out) ride I watch people going crazy on the other side, I find the later more entertaining.

You cant tell me that a superbly themed dueling El Toro attraction wouldnt be a better way to spend all that money .

I dont know how you gave this ride a three. I have been on it 3 times on two separate trips to WDW. Of course the ride doesnt require the "button push" to actually work. First off, it is to keep the rider involved, secondly, what would happen if you were a group of three? The simulation of flight and the pressing of buttons keeps with the theme of the ride, which you said you liked. Plus you have to give this a higher rating based on the fact there isnt anything else like it.
