Less than a month after a second person died after riding Mission: Space, Walt Disney World is reworking its hazardous but popular Epcot ride to offer a Mission: Space lite for people who shouldn't or don't want to try the full experience. Mission: Space simulates a spaceship launch, flight and landing by combining centrifugal and other motions with audio and video effects. There are four separate centrifuge systems in the building and at least one of them would be turned off so that riders experienced rocking motions and the other effects, but not the spinning.
Read more from The Orlando Sentinel.
People are scared, feel they are unable to ride, or don't want to ride a second time (I couldn't possibly ride more than once a day....my wife said I was "green", pale, and shakey when I got off). I imagine it's attendence and popularity will go WAY up.
I agree with everyone else, this is great news and hopefully will pull more people in.
