About

Mission space is a great simulator ride offered in EPCOT located in Future Land. This ride opened in 2003 and replaced Horizons at the park.

This ride does tend to have long wait times so I would suggest you fast pass this if possible. The ride is available in a green (less intense) and orange (original intensity). The green ride takes you through blast off, orbit and reentering Earth (Orange does the same but throw Mars into the mix).

The ride does enclose you into a capsule with 3 other people so if you don’t like enclosed tight spaces this may not be the ride for you. Each person is given a role in the ride and at designated times. The ride will ask each person to perform an action (basically its pushing a button that really doesn’t do anything).

When the ride first opening, mission space green and orange options showed the same video, but just had different intensities. In 2017 it was changed to green being Earth and Orange being Mars.

Its a fun ride, but you can tell by the footage, it is a little dated, but its all about the experience.

I enjoy this ride a lot. I had road it in both green and orange for Mars and the latest time in green.

This is a good rope drop ride at EPCOT so get there early and you’ll be able to get on with minimum wait time.
