Mission: Space at EPCOT (Walt Disney World - Feb. 2012)
Luckily I have an extremely strong stomach, because I can easily see why they would offer a "tamer" version of this for kids and the easily nauseated.
This ride has a Fast Pass option, but there was no line when we showed up so we got our boarding passes (for the more intense/extreme version of the ride) and headed on in.
You load into your flight cockpit in groups of four, and you're each given a specific instruction for when you're suppose to push your button or pull on the control stick.
I was slightly disappointed that the controls didn't "actually do anything." Because anyone can follow the instructions and land a mission safely... I was trying to simulate a crash, just to see what it would be like. No luck... oh well.
The g-force you experience is pretty extreme, and feels absolutely realistic, making for a very decent thrill ride in EPCOT.
