  • Mission:Space--How sick am I going to get?

    We'll be at WDW in December and I'm just wondering if I should ride Mission:Space. At Disneyland I take my Dramamine in the morning and do fine on just about everything. The only rides I avoid are the teacups, any spinning rides at DCA and Star Tours. I do fine on everything else, including TOT, Indy, etc., but I've heard people talking about how Mission upsets their stomachs. I know that ultiamtely I'm the only one who knows what I (meaning my stomach) can handle, but I thought I'd check in to see what others think. Thanks for any input you might have!

    If your concerned, I would ride the non-spinning side first. That way you know what the ride is all about, and what to expect.

    As long as you keep your head forward, you will be fine.

      Keeping your head back would be much MUCH better!


      Yeah. Not being nervous helps too!

      First ride on Orange team for me= feeling of face preparing to explode.
      You know the drill........life flashing before your eyes during the descent to Mars.

      Subsequent 3 or 4 rides = relaxed and FUN!

        I agree with riding the non-spinning one first too. I rode it before there was a choice and didn't feel too well afterwards. My stomach didn't bother me, but I felt pretty dizzy. I haven't tried the non-spinning side yet.
        I want my cake back!

          I think clinks meant to type - Keep your eyes foward.

          Yes, do not look side to side, that seems to bother some people. Me, I look all over the place. My kids and I lean over an mess with each others control panel during the ride.

            The best thing to do since you're apprehensive, is to follow the instructions if you ride the spinning version. Don't lean forward, don't turn your head and don't close your eyes. Because it will mess you up.

            I've ridden both versions and the non-spinning one is just as fun as the other but definitely less intense.

              Why risk it? Go green on the non-spinning version. It's plently of fun without the intensity and possible motion sickness.

                I suffer from motion sickness when I get spun around. After riding the teacups I felt bad but did recover after a while. Like a dummy I thought I could handle Mission Space. I was wiped out for a good two-three hours. Never again for me...

                  I don't have any kind of motion sickness and all the other rides in DLR and WDW don't bother me, but after Mission to Mars my equilibrium was off just a bit, but passed in about 15 minutes.

                  There is no sense of spinning if you follow instructions and it's a really cool ride, but sounds like you do need to do the non-spinning first and then decide.
                  Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
                  it's what they are like in their HEART!

                    The non-spinny is nothing. It's like you're just watching a movie.
                    The spinny one is on my agenda. I was pretty mad at myself that I didn't go on it.

                      It really is a mind over matter thing.
                      I went on the ride totally freaked out about moving my head. I was so worried about getting sick and not enjoying the ride that I didn't enjoy the ride. I totally psyched myself out.
                      I tend to get really dizzy on spinning rides but this one is different- you are not looking at things spinning around you. If you keep your head still and watch the screen (where all the action is anyway) you should be all right.

                        I suffer from motion sickness myself; can't stand busses or cars, though I'm fine with trains and planes.

                        Anyways, I would not recommend going for the Orange Team. I tried it once and got so nauseous that I only wanted to return back to my hotel room. It was by far the worst experience I've ever felt at a Disney park, and I do not want it to happen to you. Trust me, go with the Green Team version; you'll get to experience the attraction, but without the dizziness.

                          mission space is nothing compared to how sick you'll be when your visa bill arrives when you get home!

                            Yep, I did. See what happens when you try and type really quick at work without being seen.

                            I actually like both the green and orange sides. There are only 2 or 3 times where there are more forces on orange.

                              I have been on the more intense side many, many times and have never gotten sick. Although, the less intense version is pretty good, without the motion.
