    Great video. I've always chickened out on this. Watching this video may be enough for me for Orange. However, I'm planning on riding Green in several weeks. I'll have a somewhat better feel for the space before deciding whether or not to ride Orange then.

    I feel the same way. They could've made at least a slight change here or there.
    But all in all, I'm impressed.
    After riding Mission Orange probably some 20 times, I'm looking forward to adding a ride on Mission Green for the first time ever next month.

    I'd try orange. The extra eye candy is well worth it now. I'm not trying to hype people up, but it really does look that much better. This is coming from someone that basically "licks the pixels" in gaming. And if you don't, I feel green is in a good place now. It doesn't feel like "oh it's orange but lacking the forces aka fun". It feels like it's own ride. If only random events could happen, that'd seal the deal for M:S.

    Thanks. Will start with Green. It's the spinning that doesn't exactly excite me. Still haven't gone on RnRC because I don't like loops either. Been on ToT and Everest. Just not M:S at all or RnRC to date. Will change soon with Mission Green.

    Never been on green, does it just spin slower?

    The spinning is only on the main parts, at least the heaviest of it. Launch, earth orbit, moon slingshot, and Mars reentry. It's only for 10-15 secs each but you will feel the forces pushing you back. Maybe, don't think of it as spinning? You can only tell you're spinning if you stop looking at the screen.

    The reaction from my friends on orange went from "oh wow" to "holy $..." pretty quickly on launch and Mars reentry. And my friends did M:S before too, they never mentioned the forces till now.

    Slower/not at all. Old green spun at the end but slowly. There's a YouTube video of it. New green? No idea, but I felt something. Could've just been the capsule tilting to simulate forces though.

    Sorry if this has already been asked, but I have been checking repeatedly and have not seen any FastPasses available for Mission Space for this Sunday, when it is scheduled to re-open. Can anyone confirm if any have been made available?

    I have one for this Sunday. Not sure why you aren't seeing it.

    Gina: But there is one thing they had which you don't have yet...

    Cowardly Lion: C-OURAGE!!

    ---

    The lieutenant seemed a bit... off. First of all, his spiel is being lip-synced, is it not? The voice doesn't seem to match. Also, it looks like he is pretending to clap at the end, probably so the sound of clapping doesn't impinge on Gina's spiel. On the bright side, for all the Men's Rights Activists who were angry that Gary was replaced by Gina, you still have a White man telling you what to do!

    Also: let's take the idea that this fits in with "edutainment" and flush it down the toilet: Planned near-collision flybys of satellites; An orbit that make left and right turns; Hollywood version of an asteroid field; Extend your wings in the negligible atmosphere!

    Also: this does not clear up the confusion between training and simulating you're on an actual mission. It's the same script. So... did we go into hypersleep or not? Why are we training to come out of sleep? Welcome to Mars!!

    Other than that, it's really nice that Green and Orange are so clearly marked and separated and each have their own FP line. It's still a great thrill ride with the centrifuge and a nice space ride for the kids despite its bad science.

    Does Green even spin? I only went on it once, but it literally felt like it just tilted a little, like Star Tours but even less extreme, and never actually spun. After doing Orange a handful of times, Green just seemed like it sat still to me, though. Maybe it does move, albeit very, very slowly. If it does spin/revolve, it's very subtle.

    Okay, so here you can see the ride does not even spin until the very, very end. And it looks like it only does one full revolution/rotation before it stops and it takes a good 30 seconds to make that revolution. So it is suuuper slow and not intense whatsoever.

    It's probably just to get all the vomit pooled in one corner.

    From what I have heard, MS Orange rotates at 16rpms. So watching that video, Green team looks like 2rpms since it took :30 seconds to do 1 full revolution. Basically Orange spins 8x as fast as Green.

    Pity, since that was my biggest complaint from the original.

    It is also on the main sign with the orange and green mission words in a smaller font than "EARTH" or "MARS"

    Well, yeah, you're informed where the green and orange missions go, but, it really doesn't say "Earth Mission" nor "Mars Mission." The import of that is that on the site that shan't be uttered, they made a big deal of saying that "orange and green" are being renamed to "Mars Mission and Earth Mission", as in no more green and orange. So far, only one sign that we've seen has the phrases "Mars Mission" and "Earth Mission."

    It's probably because someone saw that sign that they came away with the "news" of a renaming.

    And they were so proud of that scoop.

    I think the cards they give out say Mars or Earth mission on them now. I'll have to pay attention on Sunday.

    No new nods or homages to Horizons?
