    My almost 5yr old son is determined to ride Mission: Space (the mild version) and Test Track during our visit.He meets the height req, but what is your opinion about these?I've never been on either one.I have heard TT is a very long ride.No idea of M space

    Hi, Michelle! Last year, when my oldest son was 5, he LOVED Test Track and Mission: Space.

    Test Track, in my opinion, is a milder thrill in the league of fast rides. It's a well-lit attraction on familiar territory (the road. And in Wisconsin, we see similar elements on the road on a daily basis. Except most people seem to go UNDER the speed limit on the highway. I long for 65 mph...) Test Track has been a favorite of my oldest son since he was 3 1/2 (he's tall for his age.)

    If you go on Test Track first thing in the morning, you'll only have to wait 15 minutes or less. I'd recommend doing this before Mission: Space to build up his confidence.

    Mission: Space (the mild version) is more about story than thrill. There is a great deal of build up of anticipation. Each shuttle/pod person is assigned a certain role (navigator, engineer, etc.) My son thought there would be catastrophic consequences if he didn't push his button. It all worked out in the end. When he was 5 and we finished riding the green version, we did a rider swap and he rode the orange version with mom.

    If your son is all for it and is well informed, I say go for it!
