You’re Go for Launch!

Dodge meteorites, slingshot around the moon or enjoy a breathtaking flight path featuring views of our home planet.

What’s it like to be an astronaut? Find out aboard the newly relaunched Mission: SPACE!

Kick off your journey by choosing to feel the full force of an actual space launch and rocket to the Red Planet as part of the Orange Mission. Or you can opt for the brand-new—and less intense—orbit around Earth as part of the Green Mission.

Once you’ve made your choice, head to the Simulation Lab, which houses a 35-foot-tall gravity wheel like the kind NASA uses to simulate gravity in deep space, as well as a replica of a NASA Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV). Then, pass by Training Operations, a glass bullpen where ISTC mission-control personnel are hard at work, manning their control panels.

Before you board, you’ll prepare for your mission aboard the X-2 Deep Space Shuttle at the International Space Training Center (ISTC). Each member of your 4-cadet crew will assume an important role: navigator, pilot, commander or engineer. During your flight, cadets will be instructed to initiate a mission-critical sequence… so be prepared!

Finally, board your capsule, lower your harness and prepare for an extraordinary mission—one that takes you to space, without ever leaving Epcot.

Remember: your crew is counting on you to ensure a successful voyage and a safe trip home!

Pick Your Level of Intensity

All space-bound cadets will have the chance to choose from 2 missions. The Orange Mission offers Guests 44” and above a more intense training experience, whereas the all-new Green Mission presents less intense training and a more family-friendly adventure for Guests 40” and above.

The Orange Mission uses a centrifuge that spins and tilts to simulate the speed and G-forces of a spacecraft launch and reentry. Meanwhile, the Green Mission is a motion simulator that doesn’t spin and offers light movement.

If you’re prone to motion sickness or uncertain about which level to choose, you should opt for the less intense, but still thoroughly exhilarating Green Mission.
