    Just checked a few videos:

    The funny thing is that once you pass the (AFAIK) one and only sign that names it specifically Earth Mission and Mars Mission, then there's no more mention of Earth or Mars. You must chose not between the mission objectives, but 'more intense' v. 'less intense.' I guess they don't want people inadvertently choosing the more intense simply because they want to go to Mars.

    Ah ya, I remember now. Obviously it's strange since I couldn't remember that even though I rode it a couple hours ago. I'll stick to calling it Mars and earth probably.

    Does the big gravity wheel spin again?

    I used to just step up and ask for the "Chicken Pass". I'll bet that still works.

    I was hoping for some improvements in the story itself, a good soundtrack, something else. But what we got is still a very welcome improvement.

    The ride system requires that it do at least one full rotation. Otherwise green wouldn't rotate.

    Did you ride it yet? There were definitely some new pieces of music in there. They actually sounded quite different than the original soundtrack. These new pieces weren't anything long, but it was something. Mainly during the preshow segments. The same old area loop plays in the gift shop/exit area though.

    Probably because all the cast members threatened to quit if they didn't remove that song.

    I find it very odd that they'd replace CAPCOM, yet give her practically the exact same script throughout. I guess for people who are new to it, it will be fine, but after how well I know the old script, seems weird to have someone new saying it exactly.

    Very excited to give this a go, still in two minds about weather to try Green with the Earth Mission, Orange does make me feel sick but I see it as a trade off for how awesome it is!

    Watched a video and man Mission Space just does not translate the experience well to video. Without being in the cabin with all the gadgets and doohickeys around you it's just staring at a small screen.

    It is also posted before you go into the "ready room". So since it is several places, I can see why people reported it like that. I just didn't see them saying that there would be no more orange or green. Must have missed that.
    I do agree that 3 names for each mission are a bit much.

    I can agree with that. Being in the sim makes it enjoyable. Watching it on YouTube is just watching a video...of a video.

    maybe someone will post a side-by-side comparison of the mars mission before and after. It's definitely better graphics which can be seen by youtube video, even if we can't see it in the highest resolution.

    Green Mission was insanely short. Basically Soarin over the Atmosphere in a box. The only fun part was landing. I made sure to press all the buttons though :p!

    I'm pretty sure green and orange are the same in terms of length still.

    Destiny... You think Destiny is a good Epcot song?


    You think Destiny is a good song?


    It is hands down one of the laziest and worst songs ever written for a Disney Theme Park.

    Yep I think it's fantastic. Probably shouldn't be on loop, but yes a good song.
