Along with the raft ride at Animal Kingdom and the Animal Planet show at Universal Studios, this ride was one of the biggest disappointments of my Orlando trip. Despite all the warnings (both on this site and posted on the ride itself), the ride is not overly intense. The problem is that its just not that much fun. Plus (as DcmyNY8 accurately describes in his review), it doesnt appear to matter what buttons you push or how you steer the ship, the ride is still the same. Mission Space would probably be ok if it was a sort of side attraction, but its tying up an entire pavilian. I say give this ride 8 years or so, and then quietly replace this dud just like Disney has quietly replaced the disappointing Alien Encounter at the Magic Kingdom.

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.

Yeah, I was impressed. What a cool ride, the themeing was awesome as you entered, and the whole blue or red team thing was neat, and the ride rocks. Maybe it wasnt quite what I expected, but it still was amasing. The Gs at lift-off were great, and theway the ride is done, you have no idea what is being simulated and whats real, if I didnt know better Id swear we lifted off right through the roof of the building. This ride definatly stuck in my mind for the rest of the day. Well done!

I was very slightly disappointed, but other than that, I thought it was very exciting and thrilling ride. I dont know why other things dont, but what happens during your "flight" seems to get very old very quickly. Oh and they installed barfbags just in case...I descibe it as "A Movie in a Box"

This ride was awesome it was really fun. The cool thing was the force from when you lift off it makes your face go back and it stretches ur face out.

The best themed ride that I can think of. Not only did they capture the super astronaut feel as you waited in line, but the building itself was fantastic, with its sleek and superior look. The ride itself was done with the same care and concern as its themeing. The storyline is very non original: you, and three others are part of an elite group of astronauts picked to be the first people on Mars. You must work as a team to complete this perolious mission, let alone make it out alive. when you walk through the que line, right before being put into teams, the music in the atmosphere made me feel as if I really was making the perilous journey to Mars. The you are seperated into sub teams, then enter a skinny, circular hallway that surrounds the main attraction. Then the main man comes on and tells you each persons role in the mission (while each person is told their assignment, a light shines on you, which adds a great antisipation factor to the ride!). The you board the "ship" and boy was I surprised; Disney surely outdid themselves. For a place so small, they made the whole cabin as detailed as any atraction out there, with switches and buttons, and the coolest looking simulator screens that has ever been created, they look 3D! Then the ride begins. It is a treat for everybody! The g-forces for the launch was enough to make the weak hearted laugh and cry with excitement. Then you ahve the weightlessness, witch is by far the coolest thing I have ever felt. After you go into hypertsleep (or something like that), you enter Marss atmosphere where you and your team must steer through caverns and rough terrain to finally end up landing within inches of the snowy cliffs edge. One of the most interactive simulators to date, because the commander tells you what to push at certain times, you actually get to push it! I can not review this ride, and give it justice for its incredable expirience! Just ride it, and youll know what I mean!

Mission Space is a great experience. It is one of the most purely intense rides out there, and one of the only simulators that can stack up to a rollercoaster. After the initial launch, you are treated to a couple more blasts of power during the ride which are all great fun. Many people are going to exit this ride a bit on the dizzy side, and some people perhaps a lot worse. The first time I rode it a few years back, it was in the afternoon and it really hit me. It had me feeling off-kilter for a couple hours, but on my most recent trip I rode it in the morning and was fine afterward. Overall, a really cool ride. I think it would have been better if each pod had a single, larger screen instead of 4 small ones. But, there is probably a good reason for that since they don&#39.t want people moving their eyes back and forth due to possible disorientation. The screens could have been a little more high-resolution as well.

I got to ride this during its soft opening before everyone elseand I have to say it is hands down the best simulator ride on the planet. The G forces are intense, but give you a wonderful sensation. They also had Gary Sinise, who starred in the movie Mission to Mars, whichas far as I can tell what the ride is based on. Most people complain that there is no return flight, but they say before the ride that they are training you to be an astronaut and this is a simulator, so no return flight is needed. I also love how they put each person into a specific role, and how each person has to press buttons at certain times for the mission to succeed. If you were to press the wrong button CAPCOM would respond with, "Shes going to blow," or "Were going down!" If there was ever any way to mimic flying in space without leaving the ground, this is it.

I was not as impressed with this ride as I thought I would be. All of the hype Disney put out about it made me think that this ride would be like nothing else, its just a high tech motion simulator. They tell you its the most interactive ride EVER! Well if your the computer then I guess its interactive, but you can push buttons and pull on the control stick until your blue in the face and it wont affect what happens to you in the least. So if you have never been on it give it a try. The queue is amazing though, and the line isnt too bad.
