  • Disney Debuts Tamer 'Mission: Space' Thrill Ride - WKMG, 5/19/06

    http://www.local6.com/news/9243351/detail.html


    Walt Disney World debuted a new, tamer version of the attraction thrill ride "Mission: Space" Friday at its Epcot theme park in Florida.

    Two people have died after riding the attraction.

    "It is a ride so intense that it offers its riders throw-up bags," Local 6 reporter Jessica Sanchez said Friday.

    Epcot guests will now have two options when it comes to the ride; they can either go on the current attraction or a new version, which provides a milder experience, according to the report.

    Two people have died?! I hadn't heard that. Is it really that intense?
    Now I've got to search up some threads about this one.

    Thanks for the link DB

    ... Of course I want to ride the original!

      ^I just copied the first 4 paragraphs of the news article, IMHO the key point was the fact that the "Tamer" version is now open to the public.

      But click on the link to the news article, it does discuss both deaths.

      Then of course, you can find a few discussion topics here at MiceChat about the incidents....

        It's intense, but the two people who died had pre-existing conditions. The recent lady had high blood pressure & should not have ridden any thrill ride. The child who died had a rare heart disease in which he could have died after being surprised by a popped balloon. So yes, it's intense, but not as intense as some hype it up to be. (This was the Sparknotes version of the 2 MS threads)
