I love thrill rides but I can't spin do to my blood pressure medicine. If you can spin like a million miles per hour you will be okay. I didn't do well on the Orange took me about an hour to recover. Green for me I enjoyed the ride and didn't feel like I was going to die.

Does anybody know (approximately) what the spin radius is on Mission Space? I've found the last 5 years or so that the tight spinning rides like the Mad Tea Party usually ruin my day, but bigger rides do not. I rode the green side in 2011 but I didn't get an idea of how tight it was spinning.

I've done both since a few years ago I couldn't do thrills due to an injury. You don't really miss anything by going on the green side and I was quite surprised with how well I liked it and the husband was fine with it too.

However, now that I've been cleared for thrills again, it's orange every time.

I will never ride again, but did Orange back before they had the tamer ride. My problem isn't the motion, but the small, cramped space. I just wanted to yell "Get Me Out Of Here" from the moment they closed the thing.

Even with my phobia, I thought the ride was fantastic. If you don't have problems with motion sickness (or claustrophobia) I would say try Orange. If you are worried, you can always try Green first, and if you are good there, then give Orange a try.

That's what we did...we tried green first and than went back to do orange. Both were fun but we like the Orange better.

Orange. So much more fun than green.

The orange made me sick for the rest of the day and I am too scared to try the green.

I found the Orange to be tame actually. I'm really into roller-coaster and thrill rides so I might be biased!

The orange didn't make me nauseous but I didn't like how it made me feel so my vote is for green.

I don't typically get motion sickness but the orange (before there was green) almost made me grab the puke bag. I was fine after but during... OMG I started doing lamaze breathing to make it through the launch.

Green is boring, but I'll never risk orange again.

Orange, but I do NOT have a problem with spinning. If you refrain from turning your head it prevents some of the spinning-related issues some have. That being said, we did the green side a time or two and I was quite impressed at how much they could do without spinning. If you are okay on the Tea Cups then IMO orange should be fine.
