I only rode this ride about 14 times on December 31 2007. It was great I hope Disney brings back the Wonders Of Life Pavilion. If they don't bring back WOL, then I hope they just bring back Body Wars.

I remember going to the Wonders of Life pavilion as a tradition to going to EPCOT. And for 2 main reasons: Cranium Command, and Body Wars.

Body Wars I can understand to make some people feel a little sick. Which is why my sister or mother wouldn't ride it. But I loved it. And for being EPCOT's first thrill ride, I give it some props! IT had a great storyline and very good theming. No it's not Star Tours. But it has it's own little thing that makes it special. Of course I've never been born when it had long waits, I went when it was always 5 minutes or less. Which was fine by me! This ride will be missed and is an important step in EPCOT's time. (:

Body Wars was a fun little ride. Not very impressive in terms of visuals or technology but was still better than empty space.

Body Wars is a great ride but lets say not straight after breakfast. The noise of the heart and blood pumping made me feel a little bit sick.

Well body wars was pretty cool, since it was Epcot's first thrill ride! Im 14 and i love thrill rides so i give it a 10/10!. but when i was on it in november 2006 the simulator was making weird noises, like something was loose and was about to fall off! just the one probe did it not the other four! but over all it was a great ride!

Ya'll shouldn't hatin on body wars now, it's a fun ride and it doesn't really make you sick. True, it isn't Star Tours, but it isn't too much inferior. Also it is almost never open, but all the complaining is wrong. Body Wars is a good ride!!!!!

Queue Time-Average. Used to get very long waits. Now, not so much.

Audio/Music-Average. The sound FX are pretty decent and the music is alright, too.

Preshow/Queue Area-Good. There is a lot of preshow entertainment. You get a rundown of your mission and a briefing by your pilot.

Storyline-Average. You basically are going on a scientific experimental expedition to probe the human body. Not really exciting, until things go wrong.

Theming-Good. The theming does a good job to make you think you are in a laboratory for science. The bacteria scanners and other props add to the ride as well.

Thrills-Good. The ride is quite rough. To most, this is bad. To me it was great. Lots of quick turns and sudden dips. Don\'t expect Star Tours, the ride was a bit more violent and bone-jarring.

Duration-Good. About 4 minutes. Some motion sickness-prone people might say that\'s too long.

Kid Friendly-Average. Split right down the middle. If your kids love Star Tours they most likely will like this. Can be too rough on the little ones, though.

Overall-Average. This ride was not as good as Star Tours. The characters were rather dull, too. Worth a trip for anybody that has never been on it. If you didn\'t like it much the first time, you won\'t like it the second time either.

No matter what anyone tells you, don't ride this if you have experienced Star Tours.

I found the whole experience totally forgettable and whereas in Star Tours I felt real excitement the first time round, I never actually believed for a split second that I was in someone's body, and let's face it, you want that second of believing.

It's jerky, noisy, and not much fun. If you have nothing better to do, try it out, but if there's a queue, don't bother.

This ride is not very good at all! The film is old and story is outdated. The actual ride is very rough and made me feel sick.

This is a great idea for a ride, love Tim Matheson who plays the captain. However, I've never been more sick on any other ride than this one, so it's really hard for me to judge it fairly. This ride uses the same simulators as on Star Tours, and yet I never get sick on Star Tours. The motion on Body Wars is far worse. There's something about the physical movement generated by the idea that your vehicle is pretty much out of control and at the mercy of the body fluid currents. Half the time you're supposedly moving backwards. It all just made for an extremely unpleasant trip. The only WDW ride I refuse to go on.

It's a good ride for a tough stomach, when its open now that the land is in SEASONAL operation.

This ride does seem like a rip-off of Star Tours, but it's still fun. I do agree that it's rough, but I guess that's why I think it's thrilling.

A complete clone of the Star Tours ride system, but with a terrible storyline, no pilot, and a lot more shakes. Only go if you were good on Star Tours or if you can handle a good rattle. Also, only go if there's a very small wait - it's not worth it otherwise.

I did not like this ride at all. I know that star tours is basically the same thing, but really, it isn't. This one needs either a serious update, or to be taken out completely. I can handle many different kinds of rides, including simulation, but this one I can't. The movements are jerky, and the story line is junk. I would not recommend this one, even if the line is short and all other lines are long. Instead, skip it and check out cranium command.

Good lord, this thing is awful. Rough, stupid, not fun. I think that it's the only "attraction" in history that I've actually laughed at and made fun of while on it. It's that bad.

A direct rip off of Star Tours without the fun. It is not a bad ride just nothing to remeber...Also this ride tends to be a bit rough compared to Star Tours...

This is a really jerky ride. Star tours is much smoother then this. The theme is okay ,but nothing special. I usually try to avoid this.

I think what I like this ride is the inside design of that white doors like Star Tours has. Blood doesn't always make me woozy 'cause it's the best ride I love.

While it's always nice to watch Elizabeth Shue, I sincerely hope that if they ever get around to updating that 'Star Tours' that they take a little bit of that technology and update this ride as well. Smooth out the ride system and put in a new movie with new special effects and I would wait in line for it. As it

After Star Tours was a hit, Disney put the same system to another test and slapped it in the Wonders of Life pavillion. Body Wars is the product of new technology (in it's time) that has passed it by. I'm not saying the ride system isn't great anymore. I'm just saying that it needs something new. Maybe a new ride video would help this ride out significantly. Since it doesn't have the problem of George Lucas holding it back, Disney should try to make this ride better. With EPCOT floundering, it couldn't hurt. And with Mission: Space soon to open, it could help out the impending queue time Space will receieve.

Probably the weekest thrill ride Disney has to offer, Body Wars seems lower on thrills than similar attractions and very low on theming. It comes off as just trying to copy Star Tours and does a fairly mediocre job. I would recogmend seeing this, but see this before you do Star Tours or you will be disappointed.

Body Wars is a simulator ride much in the same vein (ok, ok, bad joke) as the Star Tours attraction over at Disney Studios. It's a novel enough idea, taking a ride in a human body, but simply isn't all that shaky or thrilling. It could use a pretty good rehab and needs to be a more wilder ride.

Body Wars is a simulation ride just like Star Tours at mgm. Id much rather ride star tours, trust me its a lot better. The story of a little micro-ship going into the human body doesnt really grasp peoples attention. The ride is in need of rehab and should change. Body wars is a good 1st timer ride, but nothing else.

Body Wars is a good experience once... after that it gets quite old, fast. In my opinion, it is rough as well. For an attraction of the same type, yet much more enjoyable, I would suggest Star Tours.

I am not much of a Body Wars fan, even though I am in love with the 1989 Wonders of Life Pavilion. This simulation takes us into the human body...and isn't too exciting compared to other simulators and thrill attractions. I would visit other EPCOT Attractions before riding Body Wars.
