    Anyone been on the new tamer version of Mission Space? We don't want full movement again. If we decide not to go at all, what is your take on sending an 11 year old by herself. Can I stay with her until the ride? Thanks a ton. U guys rock!

    Susan,

    I've always been a big fan of Mission: Space and until recently I wouldn't have been able to answer your question.  However, last fall we visited Disney with extended family and I had the opportunity to ride the limited motion version myself.

    For what it's worth, I rode with my husband's 90-year-old grandmother!  I will be the first to admit that Granny Goose is pretty darn spunky, but if she can do it I bet you can too.  :)

    When you enter the ride you're now asked which version you want to experience, and given a color coded card accordingly. This lets the cast members inside direct you to the appropriate queue.  The tame version still tilts you on your back (how could you blast off into space without that?), but you don't feel the G forces that you do on the original version.  There are some wiggles and jiggles to add authenticity and enhance the experience, but nothing too jerky or vomit-inducing like the regular version does to many people.

    If you decide not to ride at all, you can go through the queue with your daughter and use the opt-out at the last moment.  We've done that before in order to spend time together in lines.  (Obviously my kids are too small to ride alone!  Just meaning my husband and I)  :)

    Hope that helps!
