Starting this past week, random guests have been selected to ride Mission Space in order to provide feedback to Imagineering. One of the four ride bays, has one out of ten of it's ride capsules that is ready for guest use, and this is being used during this early testing phase. The remaining nine capsules in the bay are using counterweights to balance the ride system.
Note, that this is preliminary testing to get rider feedback, it is not a public soft opening, and you cannot talk yourself into getting a ride. Selection is of a random nature, and is VERY limited in numbers. Also keep in mind we are talking about 1 pod, in 1 ride bay that is being used. While it is great news that things are progressing well, it does not mean that full soft opening are about to occur. As soon as any news on that appear, it will be published here.
