    I just saw a special on TV about WDW. It mentioned that there was a tamer version of Mission Space for those who can't handle such an intense ride. In all of my reading of the park this is the first I have heard this. Do you know anything about this?

    There have been two ways to experience Mission Space since the summer of 2006. When you approach the ride entrance you will see LARGE signs asking you to choose the orange (full intensity) or green (less intense) version of the ride. The signs are very explicit about the differences between the two rides

    Both versions of the ride have bumps and thrills. In both, you are in a flight simulator that moves up/down and side to side as you attempt to land your ship on Mars. The difference is that on the green version, your motion simulator is stationary, while on the orange version you are spinning on a giant centrifuge generating real-life g-forces. I must confess that I have never been brave enough for the orange version. (I get dizzy on the Teacups, so I thought it best to avoid the centrifuge.) I have done the green ride a few times and have found it very interesting (if a bit claustrophobic).

    I hope this helps.
