New Green Mission on Mission: SPACE Attraction at Epcot Set to Debut on August 13

New Green Mission on Mission: SPACE Attraction at Epcot Set to Debut on August 13 mission-space-06

One of the big announcements at the Parks and Resorts panel at the 2017 D23 Expo shared that a new ‘green’ mission would be added to Epcot’s Mission: SPACE attraction.

We’re thrilled to share that beginning August 13, 2017, the attraction will relaunch with that brand new ‘green’ mission along with an enhanced version of the ‘classic’ Mission: SPACE.

  • “If you think you’ve got ‘the right stuff,’ take on the Orange Mission for a truly 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 – I can’t imagine!”
  • “Or, embark on the more family-friendly Green Mission – a new mission that takes you on an exciting orbit around Earth. On this amazing 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. No matter which mission you choose, it’ll be a journey that’s totally out of this world.”

Along with those updates, Walt Disney Imagineering has reportedly made the attraction more family-friendly by adjusting the height restriction for the Green Mission side to allow children 40-44″ to ride with the assistance of new X-2 booster seats!
