Walt Disney World Resort is made up of four Disney Parks: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT. Each theme park has something different to offer Guests, making each of them worth a visit. However, one of the attractions residing in EPCOT is known for creating adverse reactions for some Guests…
As EPCOT undergoes its historic transformation, four distinct neighborhoods emerge: World Celebration, World Discovery, World Nature, and World Showcase. Sometimes, it can get confusing for Guests who are familiar with the Future World neighborhood, but World Discovery still captures some of the same ideals and vibes as the previous area.
World Discovery holds some of the more modern, science-fiction, and futuristic attractions, such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Test Track, and Mission: SPACE.
Undoubtedly, these are the most thrilling attractions in the Disney Park. Sometimes, Mission: SPACE can be too exciting in particular.
On Mission: SPACE, there are two missions, the Green Mission and the Orange Mission. The Orange Mission is intense and mimics the actual G-Forces used during space travel, while the Green Mission takes Guests on a calming ride around our home planet.
Understandably, the Orange Mission can cause motion sickness…and even panic attacks!
One Guest recently took to social media to ask about others’ reactions to the space travel thrill ride. The comments almost immediately came pouring in as fans and frequent visitors shared their responses to the intense attraction.
Reddit user r/puzzled-bets shared a sweet anecdote about her experience, “I did as well when I rode it. The 8-12 year old sitting next me grabbed my hand and said ‘ma’am, it’s ok, you will be ok. It’s almost over.’ I was kinda humiliated but the kid was so nice.”
Another user shares a…less touching reaction towards their experience on Mission: SPACE, writing, “Yes it is a horrible ride. I have flown off an air craft carrier and the g force is correct. Even after that you can move around. The length of not being able to move is an issue for me. NEVER AGAIN!”
Reddit user r/mmrose1980 wrote, “It’s my one ‘never again’ ride. Zero fun, only nausea. 0 out of 10 stars.”
In short, Mission: SPACE can get super intense if you choose the wrong mission. The next time you visit EPCOT’s World Discovery, be sure to take precautions and choose your mission wisely when riding this thrilling attraction!
