May 19, 2006 – The Mission: SPACE Green Team Experience Premieres in Epcot
“Or you can opt for the brand-new – and less intense – orbit around Earth as part of the Green Mission.”
On May 19, 2006, a gentler option of the popular Epcot attraction Mission: SPACE, known as the Green Team, officially premiered. The Green Mission was created as a way to provide the attraction to more guests who are uneasy riding the original attraction (now known as the Orange Mission) due to many cases of severe motion sickness. In the Green Mission, guests no longer travel to Mars, but orbit around the Earth; though no longer using a centrifuge approach to simulate lift-off and reentry, the ride still tilts and moves slightly.
