This ride is so far out of this world. And it pays off of the 20 years of development for it! I beleive Buzz Aldrin actually rode this and said it was the closest thing to going into space that you can get. The storyline is good, but lacking a small tad. Overall, I am VERY impressed with this ride. Its fun to experiment with this ride. After the accident happened (we were there that week), it had like no line at all. I was able to ride it over and over. Try taking a penny or something and throwing it during the take off. Very fun. =)
The line is also fun to look at the object through out it.

Nine or ten, this is tough. Either way this ride was great! It is easily my favorite ride at EPCOT, and in my top three at WDW along with Tower of Terror and Splash Mountain (those top three arent in any particular order, they provide completely different ride experiences so I cant really rank them against each other). The queue was amazing. I was under the impression that newer rides were making less impressive queues because of the Fastpass system, but Mission: Space proved me wrong. The whole scene for the International Training Center was great, and the huge wheel on the wall was very impressive. When you reach the end of the line you are put into one of four pre-show rooms, each pre-show room empties into a different centrifuge. Once in the pre-show you get the basis for the ride (by lieutenant Dan, lol). You are on the first ever manned mission to mars, and its going to be intense. You are assigned into your pod when you enter this pre-show, so from there you enter a large circular hallway that wraps around the ride. This is where the second pre-show takes place (yes, how sweet does a ride have to be to have 2 pre-shows?). At this point you are only standing with the other four people who are in your pod. This is when yu get your position and your assignment. Basically for all of them you just push a couple of buttons when they light up, but it adds to the ride experience to have a level of interaction between you and the other people in your pod, this is a great ride to meet cool new people on. One thing about the pre-ride experience is that you get countless warnings about motion sickness and ride conditions. There is no way you can get on Mission: Space without hearing numerous warnings concerning the nature of the ride. Once in your pod you strap in and get ready for lift-off. This is when the real fun begins. The thing that really impressed me about this ride was the seamlessness with which the Gs are applied. You cannot tell that you are being spun around quickly at all, it feels like youre sitting still and gravity is increasing naturally. All I can say is "Wow". The way the G-Forces are applied doesnt feel anything like a roller coaster, it really feels like gravity is increasing while your pod is at a stand-still. This is where the "jobs" make the ride a little bit more fun. Reviewers have been complaining that the jobs dont really determin the outcome of your mission. Yes, this is true. I think what makes the jobs so much fun is the fact that you have to try to lift your hands up to the control panel in orde to push your buttons. This may sound easy, but the sensation of slowly lifting your hands to push a button is VERY cool, and its even a *little* bit harder than one might expect to aim at a small button while youre experiencing the different sensations. My favorite part of the ride is when you enter Mars atmosphere. This felt like the most intense part of the ride, although the slingshot around the moon was fun too. To me, there are only two downfalls of the ride. First, the zero-G sensation is basically 1G. In other words, its not very convincing. Second, the ending is a little bit lame. Even with these downfalls Ive decided to give this ride a 10, because I think that this is a very well themed Disney experience that really captures the imagination.

Simply Amazing is the only way to describe this ride. I rode Top Thrill Coaster with 120+ mph launch and Mission Space definately pulled more Gs. The launch and slingshot where definately my favorite parts. The themeing and attention to detail in the cockpit were on a new level. I rode Mission Space several times and it just kept getting more fun. Spin and puke rides are not my top choice but I didnt experience any unpleasant effects. Dont miss this one !!!

I didnt think this ride was that great. Its like the motion simulator at my home park. I dont feel a difference. However, I like that one better.

As a first time rider, waiting on line made me very tense and nervous. I had no idea what to expect as I waited. Even when the operators strapped me into the "ship" I still had no idea how this voyage into space would be simulated and feel. Once the ride began though, I realized that all of my worrying was useless. This ride was a blast! Your face and head are pushed against the headrest as you are sent to Mars and back. Take-off was easily the most thrilling part as you slowly rise out of the launch tower into space and constantly accelerate. Astronauts even claim that this is how a real take-off feels. It was well worth the wait. Mission: Space is $100 million well spent!

This ride is truly a thrill. For all you who want Disney to have more thrills... this is it. What an unbelievable feeling. I rode this early in the morning and had no wait (july too). I love the fact that Disney tells you 3 or 4 times not to ride if you get motion sick. Anyway, that just added to the actual ride. The best part in my opinion is not the lift off, but the sligshot around the moon. It was so amazing, I cant describe it! Because I didnt have to wait in line, I really cant describe the line, however, I did briefly see some cool stuff.

This ride is a great ride. I have never been on anything like this. The sensations on this ride are out of this world. When you go to land on mars I thought my eyes were going to pop out of my head. One word of advice dont ride it twice in a row like i did. I was seeing things all day after that.

This ride is unlike anything youll ever be on. It truly immerses you into the story. This ride made be a little dizzy, but I still managed to ride it again . The technology used on this ride really proves how far weve gotten. This is probably the most detailed ride in all of Disney. A cant miss for thrill seakers and space fans alike.

WOW………….WOW………..I just don’t understand anyone that is a thrill rider that can say no to this, it is certainly the best simulator I have ever been on!!!! It is certainly a once in a lifetime experience. BUT Caution :this is not a family ride it’s a Disney thrill!!!! The setting they have for the public is the light setting an employee that works at magic kingdom told me that the ride is not on the highest setting she said that the employees got passes for the high setting and she said it made her sick but it was the best ride she’s been on. Its smart that they turned the setting down before they opened it for the public.
It is one my favorite Disney thrill!

A different, new-kind-of-thrill ride. Its scary, fun, intense, and exciting. I think its very thrilling and fits Epcots types of rides perfectly. A great addition to Disneys (small) thrill ride collection!
