Welcome back to the latest installment in our thrill rides series! If you’re looking for the BEST rides in Disney World to feel those G-forces, then Epcot has some pretty great options. Climb aboard this blog train and read about the thrill rides at Disney Epcot!
The first on our list of thrill rides in Epcot has got to be Mission: SPACE. You board your own spaceship to travel on a NASA-inspired mission to Mars. Each member of your crew will have one of four jobs during this simulation: navigator, pilot, commander, or engineer. Now, when this ride first opened to guests, it was so intense that they had to offer a less intense experience. Thus, you now get to choose from the Orange Mission (more intense; with G-forces) or the Green Mission (less intense; no G-forces). In the Green Mission, the simulator does not spin and thereofre does not produce G-forces. If you’re a little apprehensive about the Orange Mission, try the Green Mission first to see if you enjoy it. My husband and I did both… we actually had to go back to the hotel and lie down after the Orange Mission. It was too intense for us!
Must be 44 in (112 cm) or taller to ride the Orange Mission.
Must be 40 in (102 cm) or taller to ride the Green Mission.
Test Track recently received an overhaul and is now presented by Chevrolet! This collaboration added a new virtual experience to the attraction. Guests get to design their own virtual vehicles and put them to the test in a series of obstacles on this ride. When you’re finished with your design, board your own “SIM” car and drive it around the test track! You will experience several weather climates, zoom around curves banked at 50 degree angles, and even reach speeds up to 65 mph on the outdoor track. Just watch out for any 18 wheelers!! At the end, see how your design car measured up to the other passengers!
Must be 40 in (102 cm) or taller to ride.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is an indoor coaster coming to Epcot in 2021. This new FutureWorld attraction has an gigantic show builing (you can’t miss it!) to feature a fun group of cosmic superheroes! Guests can expect to visit “Xandar” and meet up with the Guardians themselves! The ride vehicles are going to be very unique as they will rotate through the coaster experience. Finally, this will be the first indoor rollercoaster to have a “reverse launch.” Can’t wait to experience this thrilling ride!
As with all of these thrill rides, be sure to secure your FastPass+ reservations. That way you can experience these popular attractions!
