Accessible Attractions – Mission: SPACE

July 16, 2012

Mission: SPACE at Epcot

Mission: SPACE is not an attraction I head to often. Mostly because I was convinced to try the Orange mission once and my stomach still hasn’t forgiven me. But since I am trying to document as many attractions as I can we headed back on our last trip.

For those of you that don’t know Mission: SPACE is a motion simulator. When you arrive at the attraction you are asked if you want to be a part of the Green or Orange Team. Green is the less intense version of the attraction. Orange is the original version and includes a spin. Once you choose you enter the queue.

Part of the queue.

After you make your way through the queue you enter the Ready Room. The Cast Members here will divide everyone up into teams of four. This is where we usually mention that we need to use the transfer device so they can have it ready. Once the video is over you will head into another room before heading into the area with the simulators.

Once you get to the simulators a Cast Member will bring in the transfer device and place it next to the simulator. It is basically just a seat but it makes getting in and out so much easier. I was able to get onto the seat from my wheelchair and into the simulator with minimal help. Just be aware that the seat inside sits a little further back than the transfer seat. If you need help a member of your party can enter the simulator from the other side and help. The Cast Member that helped us was awesome and didn’t make us feel like we needed to hurry.

Overall I found this to be one of the easier attractions to transfer into. Getting back into my wheelchair can sometimes be harder but getting back out was just as easy. The transfer device helped a great deal. Just make sure to let Cast Members know that you would like to use it so they can have it ready for you when you get to the simulators.
