Starting Aug. 13th Epcot’s Mission: SPACE attraction will re-open with a brand new experience and an enhanced version.
Guests will be able to take on the Orange Mission for a truly intense experience that will let them feel the force of an actual space launch en route to Mars. On this mission, they’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.
The new more family-friendly Green Mission takes guests on an exciting orbit around Earth. On this amazing new adventure, they’ll take in sites like the Hawaiian Islands, Italy’s “boot” and the Northern Lights as seen from space, before finally landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
In addition to all the “mission” updates, Walt Disney Imagineering have also made this attraction MORE family-friendly. Younger astronauts can now 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.
