Hi! We just did this for the first time ever (didn't even realize it was there or what it was) and it was fun. I definitely recommend you do it at least once! I chose the coaster, my dd chose the bobsleds - both were fun! The CM said this simulator is a lot like what they use on Forbidden Journey at IOA! Enjoy!

I did it during my August trip. It annoyed the heck out of me that there was no "back" button on the ride design screen, because I got stuck with kind of a lame ride by accident.

I'm about 240 pounds, most of it in my lower body, and I fit into the simulator, but it was not comfortable on my hips and behind. For a person whose weight is more spread out, they'll probably be more comfortable, but I'm only 5'5" so I'm not tall and can't comment on the experience of tall people.

I enjoyed it more than cyberspace mountain. The ride is smoother I think

Thanks again to everyone for their (mostly) positive reviews. We'll definitely be doing this one!

Only one more week. Oh yeah.

If you want to go upside down it's 54". 137cm to some of us . My kids are just over the limit, so they're happy about that.

Wow, I feel dumb!

I have walked by this attraction a million times and had no idea it was simulator ride. Just went on Youtube to check it out. A must do when we go back next year.

How is this for someone with major issue with being in tight spaces?

Your arms are free but it is a bit claustrophobic

You can easily watch your DH in the ride, but you won't be able to "see" the roller coaster or course like he does on his screen in the cabin.

If you are afraid, the CM will tell you how to set up your ride so that you don't go upside down.

For anybody who isn't afraid, though, I suggest setting it to go upside down for every possible option. The moves that do not go upside down don't really feel like anything and are not much of a thrill at all. The upside down is what makes it exciting and it feels really cool.

I also suggest going to this early in the morning. The line moves very, very slowly.

Also forgot to mention that there is a sample seat set off to the side of the attraction so that someone can sit in it to see if it's a good fit before going through the whole procedure of planning your ride.
