After that, I can go to Innoventions and send an email message about my ride experences to someone who is willing to be standing by their email box at mid-day on 10/2 and then repost my comments to the Disney Echo in this thread. Any voluntEARS?

I'll do it if you like :mickey:

That's great, Chris! I'll send it to your hotmail address -- unless you want me to send it to another one instead.

After you get my message, post it here as a reply.

Wait a sec Rich, I think I misread your reply, did you mean post any alternative email address here as a reply? Or did you mean put my hotmail here as well so you can access it from WDW?

Either is fine :mickey:

I meant I made a note in my PassPorter of what the (hidden) email address of yours is in your profile -- the one at hotmail.com -- and I'll send you an email message from WDW about Mission: SPACE after I ride it. Once you get that email message, please post my mini-trip report here in this thread for me, since you voluntEARed.
:)

I'll be sending it to you as an email message to post here because I don't think there's any free access to websites at WDW (otherwise I'd post it to the Disney Echo myself live and direct from WDW) - - but if anyone knows of a place to do that without a charge, let me know 'cause I'm all ears!

No problem Rich. I just wasn't sure if you wanted the email address reproduced on here or not for your convenience, for a moment I was thinking you might have requested that for easy access from a public terminal :mickey:

But don't worry, I did indeed volunteer to share your stuff. It will be fun for me to help! :mickey:

Will you be sending along to me any photos to share with the text too?

Probably the best I'll be able to do will be a video postcard from Mission: SPACE (silent).

Mission:  Space is a unique experience.  Star Tours and Body Wars are flight simulators.  They jerk and tip and give the sensation of floating.  The sensation of floating is a part of Mission Space.  Once the spacecraft leaves the gravity of earth, one feels as if they would float away if not harnessed into their seat.  This, of course, is an illusion, but it felt to me rather real.  Most of us have never experienced true weightlessness, but in my estimation the ride does a good job of giving one the impression the ride intends.

The pre-boarding warning include any sensitivity to (flight) simulators as well as spinning rides.  This is why I included the two Disney simulator rides in the alert.  

I did not see any provisions for helping sick crew members about to barf.  True I had a tongue in cheek about the "emergency space barf bag" toggle switch, but only half way so.  I really think they should have such a thing...seriously.  

The visual impact of the spin experienced on tea cups make it different than the paradox of feeling the G force of a fast spin but seeing only linear motion on the video monitor.  One get thrown back into the seat by RRC at take off, but this can not be maintained as long and as hard as needed to simulate a blastoff into space, thus the need for the centrifuge.  The spin is smooth and silent and nothing clues your eye into recognition of a circular movement...unless you close your eyes.  So I suggest eye stay open just as the pre-show suggests or rather admonishes.  The ride really does require visual contact at all times to fully stay with the mission.  There is just that initial few seconds during blastoff where the G force is most intense that made me want to squint or do SOMETHING to cope with that feeling of being pressed backward into the seat so hard for what seems longer than it really is, but whose going to be watching a stop watch at THAT time.

When a roller coaster makes a complete 360 loop, there is some G force there, ditto with corkscrews.  Both of these can disturb the inner ear and cause people to get sick, some faster and more severe than others.  Some people must stay off playground swings.  Some folks can sail in high seas without problems; others turn green with gentle sea swells while others yet get sick just by thinking about the movement of boats and ships.

Remember, no other ride is IDENTICAL to Mission Space, but all those other Disney rides I listed have the potential to mess with the inner ear are given as models to help new crew members decide if they want the kind of experience that the ride offers.   If you took some of the motion characteristics of Test Track, Rocking Roller Coaster, TZTOT (because for a split second one feels as if they floated off their bench), Tea Cups, Body Wars and Star Tours and dumped them into a blender, the new creation would be something like Mission:  Space.

Goofyteer,

Guests can not see what the ride is doing to them on the outside of the spacecraft, but during the pre-boarding show they do show a computer graphic of how the crew compartments are oriented in a big circle and dangle from massive steel spokes.  I seriously doubt the ride inverts the crew on the mission like a coaster ride.  RRC was mentioned just because it also generates G force when the coaster loops in a tight radius.  I suppose Big Thunder Mt with its horizontal loops might have been a better example.  There is indeed a difference between a vertical inversion loop and a horizontal speed loop.  I am not surprised that some can not take body inversions but can tolerate horizontal spin.  It all depends on your inner ear and the way the brain responds to its input.  If you can spin fast on Tea Cups eyes open or closed, I would thumbs up riding MS.  I really have no IDEA why one is made to feel weightless on MS.  Maybe someone else can provide this insight.  

Readers should know that there are many sensations felt on MS and not just at blastoff.  The landing on Mars involves less spin and more flight simulator effects as the crew joysticks the craft to the landing zone much like Star Tours  but I never felt I was upside down.  On Star Tours, your a passenger; on MS you have a joystick...you feel in control...or NOT.  Happy Landings!
