Rich you said

But I've also read reports from people who say they can't "stomach" the teacups -- even at a less intense level than you're suggesting for the "test" -- who had no problems at all on Mission: SPACE because you don't actually see yourself twirling around on Mission: SPACE as you do on the teacups ride


This comes as no surprise.  We are not all the same, but I still think the tea cup spin strong enough is the closest thing.  Remember, the Tea Cups travel along a track toward and away from the center as the cup itself rotates at a speed the rider regulates.  This changes the way the ride messes with the inner ear.  However, our brain and our stomachs have a great deal to do with our response to motion rides.  That is why the vision thing has an impact too.  I can remember riding a variety of spinners and what I would always do to help me tolerate the sick feel of the spin was to gaze on something that was not moving in a blur across my eyes...like my foot or the floor.  It can help sometimes which is why I say that keeping eye contact on the linear, straight ahead visual input of the blastoff or on the flight path can help offset the feel of the spin whenever G force is applied.

Thanks for your help kirby428. It's assuring hearing your saying that you didn't think it did inverted spins, as it sounds like you've had a lot of experience with rides that do and can detect such things. If it just spins while the screen gives the impression of flying or something I'm sure I'll be just fine. Thanks for all your help! :mickey:

Now let's just hope that when I can ride it that no one else along on the ride with me will get sick. Because if they do watching them get sick will definitely make me upchuck!

Which were the categories (pilot, navigator, etc.)/seating positions with the least intense to the most intense ride experiences again?

And do you get a chance to over-rule which category you are placed into, or should you just request the easiest category/seat position (whichever one that is) the first time you ride if you want to see if you can "stomach" it at the ride's mildest level?

ok..here it is :) sorry it took soo long to post this but its my review of MISSION SPACE!!!!! :D

I have been on it twice and absolutely loved it both times :) I did feel alot of pull on my face each time...though it was in different parts of my face based on where I sat in the capsule.  

I didnt feel sick on the ride itself but when I was done with the ride both times I had a "rock" in my stomach....a large sprite and a good meal solved the problems both times.

My only complant is that the ride itself is way too short!!! :D  but worth the wait just to get the thrill of take off :)

There ya go :)

TTFN

I wonder if Mickey and Goofy are sporting helmets. If they are then Mickey's must be huge! His head might look like something akin to a snowglobe or something with those ears.

Are they only going to be there for a limited time? I hope they'll at least be there a year or so while Mission Spce is still considered new for guests to check out. I'll have to see if I can make it out to WDW as soon as I can, it will be amusing to see if Mickey and Goofy are walking around looking like they're straight out of Moonraker :laugh:

Sorry, I don't know. The limited amount of time Eeyore had was a surprise to him... The CMs who work with him didn't know until he was reassigned back to the Magic Kingdom.

:oops:

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

A new attraction is now open in the Mission: SPACE post-show area. It is an online version of the Space Race game.

Wow, there is some excellent info here on Mission Space.  Kirby428, great detail.  I too am a big Cedar Point fan.  Grew up going every summer and now go about every other year to take my son (most of my family is still in Ohio).

Looks like I'll have to skip MS which really bums me out.  I have vertigo and cannot tolerate constant spinning.  I seem to be the opposite of others.  I love roller coasters, upside down and every way and they don't bother me sickness wise, but cannot stand Space Mountain or Rockin Roller Coaster.  For me, as long as I can see what's ahead I have no problem, but the not being able to see what's ahead or about to happen really makes me sick.  

Now there are three rides I can't do at WDW! :unhappy:
