Mission: SPACE in Epcot at Walt Disney World relaunches on August 13th with brand new upgraded experiences for thrill seekers and families.

Already one of the highlights at Epcot, the attraction simulates the feeling of lift off and the experience of looking at the Earth from outer space, with authentic, NASA-style training and space travel aboard the Mission: SPACE “rocket.”

Starting on August 13th, the attraction will be relaunched with a brand new experience and an enhanced version of the “classic” Mission: SPACE.

If you think you’ve got “the right stuff,” take on the Orange Mission for a truly intense experience that lets you feel the force of an actual space launch en route to Mars. On this mission, you’ll dodge meteoroids, slingshot around the moon and attempt a precision landing on the Red Planet’s alien surface. This “mission” has been enhanced with new, HD video to make it even clearer – I can’t imagine!

Or, embark on the more family-friendly Green Mission – a new mission that takes you on an exciting orbit around Earth. On this amazing new adventure, you’ll take in sites like the Hawaiian Islands, Italy’s “boot” and the Northern Lights—as seen from space, of course—before finally landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. No matter which mission you choose, it’ll be a journey that’s totally out of this world.

In addition to all the “mission” updates, Walt Disney Imagineering have also made this attraction more family-friendly. Younger astronauts will now be able to ride – the height restriction will be changed for the Green Mission side with the addition of new X-2 booster seats allowing children 40-44” to ride.
