Mission SPACE refurbishment

Mission: SPACE reopens Sunday August 13 with a brand new family friendly mission on the green side.

New signage is now in place, giving an overview of each mission along with the various height requirements and motion sickness warnings.

Updates to the entrance area signage also includes planet Earth alongside Mars, reflecting the choice of missions that will be available.

The Orange Mission will continue to offer an intense experience that lets you feel the force of an actual space launch en route to Mars. On this mission, you’ll dodge meteoroids, slingshot around the moon and attempt a precision landing on the Red Planet’s alien surface. This “mission” has been enhanced with new, HD video to make it even clearer. Height requirement remains at 44".

The new family-friendly Green Mission takes you on an exciting orbit around Earth. On this new adventure, you’ll take in sites like the Hawaiian Islands, Italy’s “boot” and the Northern Lights—as seen from space, of course—before finally landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Younger astronauts can now ride – the height restriction will be changed for the Green Mission side with the addition of new X-2 booster seats allowing children 40" to ride.
