Someone had to say it!! And she said it. Lets whack'em with the truth stick until they start building better attractions.Way to call'em out :-)
It's true, but Mission Space is still a once-in-a-lifetime attraction. See it once and that's enough for a lifetime!
JAMEST!! You're back! Right you are, brother and she did it! Jennifer will now be known as our official MVT Den mother! That's right, It's a new position here at MVT and she has filled it. If we are Brownie Troop 2083 of Mesa Verde.....she's our Den Mother. Period.Congratulations on your new post Jennifer. You've just become the "mom" figure to 5,000 dorks worldwide!I also know that omniluxe has pecked the eyes out of 57 people who were involved with making Mission Space. The rest of you......HIDE!
She speaks the truth. They took a perfectly safe attraction and replaced it with the spinning ride of death. Inexcusable.
As true as hell!Which kind of reminds me of a fan-made advert campaign I might start off soon:"It sure sounds uncomfortable... nauseating even... but Body Wars has thrilled EPCOT visitors, but only killing one in 1995. "But that's nowhere close to the unfortunate 6 visitors that Mission:Space does. "So, what's more uncomfortable?!"And to make it emotionally believeable, she should've put on a sad face to truly show it. Nice to hear a voice from a proud Horizons supporter!
Safe attraction...unless you hop out of it to go explore under and behind the track. :-)
I've never met Jennifer, but I like her just from this picture.
Talk about grossly mischaracterizing what happened. The fright of a balloon popping could have killed the poor boy, which means it was entirely possible for somebody with a condition as severe as his to have died on Horizons.
But, Drew, it didn't happen. "Could have" is different from "did". People don't hate Mission Space because it kills people, they hate it because it's a ridiculous ride, a sorry replacement for Horizons, AND it kills people! If it we're a really cool ride that fit the Epcot theme maybe folks wouldn't mind a few deaths here and there. As it is, it's the same thing as dying while playing a carny game at that stupid dinoland in Animal Kingdom. Me, I'd rather buy the farm on a well thought out attraction like The Jungle Cruise.
You have no idea how honored I feel to be on your phenomenal site, Guys. Thank you. Kisses and L'Orange,Jenniferaka JennHas2Ns
HAHA! The pleasure is ours, dear. We love it when Horizons fans go above and beyond like you have. Nicely done!

The problem though is that the real, legitimate criticisms of Mission: SPACE are all diminished when people try to exploit these deaths and use them as a criticism. The attraction exacerbated existing conditions, a potential of every thrill ride, but the way it is presented is as a design flaw that makes it dangerous to the average visitor.
It's a shitty experience overall. Bad show, death etc. Let's not mention that stupid piece of multi million dollar SHIT anymore. In fact, I hear by decree: Because people die and therefore holy matters come into play, Bishop Kyle is the only one who may utter the words "Mission Space" without being sent directly to hell (California Adventure). -AMEN Drew, you missed the boat. I wish you could have experienced Horizons at least once. I'd gladly give one of my many rides to you if I could.
Well, Horizons did bore a few people to death during its time. That counts, right? Really now, that's in bad taste. You get sick people with bad hearts on an fast ride like that, something bad is bound to happen.
