And, according to the Orlando Sentinel, Mission: SPACE's official opening day is today! Read the complete story.

What is the height requirement for Mission Space?

Any idea how the parent swap will work with this ride?  I would really hate to go in the exit and miss all the great pre- show stuff!

Thanks!

Mission: SPACE Fast Facts

Minimum guest height requirement: 44 inches

Location: Future World in Epcot (between GM Test Track and Wonders of Life pavilions)

Timeline: International Space Training Center, year 2036

Height of attraction: 35 feet

Area of attraction: 45,000 square feet

Queuing options: Standby line, singles line, and FASTPASS

Precautions: Guests prone to motion sickness or sensitive to tight spaces, loud noises, simulation or spinning can opt for the fun of the post-show Advance Training Lab

Planetary Plaza: Anchored with dramatic spheres representing the moon, Jupiter, a rotating Earth and the red planet. Quotations from significant persons adorn the area including, "Look Upward...from this world to the heavens," Plato; "The Universe...stands continually open to our gaze..." Galileo; and "We set sail on this new sea because there is knowledge to be gained..." U.S. President John F. Kennedy.

Space Simulation Lab: Anchored by a rotating Gravity Wheel. Also: a Lunar Rover on loan from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

Gravity Wheel: 35 feet in diameter. Cutaway views of living areas in a habitat designed for space travel.

Ready Room: Crew positions -- pilot, commander, navigator, engineer. CapCom leading the training mission orientation is actor Gary Sinise.

Ride bays: 4 bays, each housing 10 X-2 rocket capsules

X-2 rocket capsule configuration: Straight-across seating for a crew of 4 guests

Total number of guests per each ride cycle: 160

Duration of ride: The entire Mission: SPACE experience, from pre-show to Advance Training Lab, can last from 45 minutes to more than an hour. The ride to Mars lasts approximately 4 minutes from capsule door close to open.

Ride system: State-of-the-art centrifuge technology, sophisticated visual imaging systems and audio systems. Two primary computers on the ride system control the entire ride and show functions of the attraction, including the pitch and roll of each spacecraft. In addition there are 30 motion-control computers on board that control altitude during flight. A show-control computer operates the interactive functions within each capsule.

G-Force: Of less force and less duration than an actual shuttle launch, and lower intensity than a typical roller coaster

Advance Training Lab: Post-show area includes Space Race, Space Base, Expedition: Mars, Postcards from Space

Mission: SPACE Cargo Bay: A 1,500-square-foot merchandise location includes astronaut-inspired gear

Presented by: HP (Hewlett Packard)

If you think you might not be able to handle Mission: SPACE, where you sit makes a difference.

There are reports from Guests who have been on it many times that the intensity of the experience depends to a great deal on which seat you are in during the ride. The Navigator has the mildest ride, followed by a more intense ride for the Pilot, and then Commander. Those sitting in the Engineer seat feel the most g-force pull and spinning effects.

:space:  :clapping:  :space: Been there, done it, going back!  We rode it numerous times last week.  DH, Myself and DS7 loved it!  One person did get sick inside during one trip. :barf:  They quickly cleaned it up and no one knew the difference.  (DH saw the person with the gloves cleaning while he and DS7 were waiting to take off during the delay.)  CM said they had toned it down some.  It's still a blast!  It was DS7 favorite ride of all 4 parks!  Can't wait to go again!

Have you already taken a ride on Mission: SPACE, Jeany -- or do you mean you like what you've heard about it so far?

What's your favorite thing about it?
