  • [Question] Mission Space, what is the difference....

    I was reading that there is 2 versions of Mission:Space?? What is the difference? ( I know, I know so many questions... Me and the wife are Disneyland nuts and have AP's visiting at least 4 times a year, we live 6 hrs. away)

    The Orange Version is the version that spins in the centrifuge like manner....causing many people to suffer from motion sickness, "protein spills" and the like. The Green Side is the same film, but without the motion. It actually feels very realistic as well, just less intense in motion and g-Forces
    It's a Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah...Tip for Today!

      I would stick to the Green Side. It's still a really realistic experience, despite the lack of spinning. I've only been on the Orange Side once (when the attraction first opened and there was no choice), and once was enough for me. It's pretty intense - the warnings every 5 feet aren't joking.

        The Orange side spins. The Green side just shakes (does not spin).

                  Orange rocks! My wife and I rode it 5 times during the week we were there in 2006. We kept our heads back and eyes forward as instructed and had no problems whatsoever. (Bear in mind we are both between the ages of 55 and 65 and have no health issues.)
                  Have bicycle, will ride. Finished 2012 with 10,089 miles, 683 hours, and 482,000 feet of elevation gain.
                  2013: 201 rides, 8171 miles, 544 hours, 480K feet.
                  2014 so far: 7846 miles, 451,000 feet

                    Both tilt. One tilts and spins.

                    For example, when you are getting ready for blast off at the beginning, both will tilt so you feel like you are on your back. Upon the rockets igniting, the green will tilt a little more, the orange will spin, causing you to feel more than 1 G , so it feels like you are blasting off.

                    I can see no rhyme or reason as to who gets sick and who does not. I have heard stories of people riding orange and being dizzy the entire day. I have heard stories of people getting sick

                    On the other hand, myself and my two girls (now 6 and 9) have ridden Orange back to back to back with no ill effects. We also do no look straight ahead as some people recommend you MUST do or you will get sick. We lean over and mess with each others controll panels, we joke around, and have fun on the ride. My youngest rode it when she was 3 ro 4 - she just made the height requirement, it was before they did orange/green, when it was "all orange" - she loved it then and loves it now.

                    Best advice I can give, is try it once on green, if that freaks you out, skip orange. If you like green, then give orange a whirl (so to speak)

                    Take a look here

                    And you can see how the tilting and spinning works

                      One thing to keep in mind is that both of the versions are extremely close quarters. I didn't have a lick of trouble with the spinning, but my claustrophobia was in full force on my first (and only) ride. Once things got going it was OK, but I nearly went into total freakout mode when that control panel moved down within inches of my face!!!

                          The green side was just like seeing a movie.

                          And how I picked you up and everything changed
                          It was pain

                            You wouldn't laugh if you'd been on the orange version (Not chiding you by the way! -I laughed at the comment too) and then barfed your way around Epcot afterwards. It is not pleasant! Go Green guys - go Green! Some folk don't do well with motion. I'm fine on roller coasters but put me on anything that spins and ................. As mentioned earlier it is a confined space so if you're the slightest bit clostrophobic then neither colour is for you! And heed the warnings - they are there for a reason. If you have health problems then don't ride.

                              I sometimes get dizzy on spinning rides, but had no problem with the orange team. If you are highly sensitive to spinning, try the green team. But if you can handle most kinds of thrill rides, the orange shouldn't be a problem. Look straight ahead, don't close your eyes, and you should be o.k.

                              By the way, the orange team is much more thrilling than the green. No contest. I chickened out at first and went on the green, but when I finally tried the orange, I was glad I did. My favorite attraction in Epcot.
