The Shuttle Launch Experience is a 44,000-square-foot simulator that aims to re-create the feeling of a space shot in real time, from the launch pad to orbit. Kennedy Space Center has plenty riding on the simulator, with $60 million and the expertise of several astronauts coming together to create what former shuttle commander Rick Searfoss calls "the most realistic simulation of a shuttle launch there is."

I guess it is safe to say that the Disney "stay on property" model is working pretty good.

Mission in Space is real good and the good news is at least you have more rides after that. Also you get to choose your intensity on Mission in Space. I hope they don't have deaths on this ride like they did on Mission in Space.

Space travel is intense. You are always given the option of riding the Flying Dumbos if you so feel the urge.
