Mission: SPACE Advanced Training Lab is an interactive play space featuring space-themed exhibits and games for Guests of all ages in the Mission: SPACE Pavilion at Epcot®. Mission: SPACE Advanced Training Lab is the perfect place to visit after blasting off on your one-way flight to Mars. It’s also great if you decide not to join in the journey to Mars, but still want some space-themed fun.
There are four interactive space areas in Advanced Training Lab, including:
Space Base: This is a play area for young astronauts, where they can climb, slide and explore new areas of space.
Expedition Mars: You’re on a mission to use a joystick and jet-pack button to find 4 astronauts on the surface of Mars within 4 minutes.
Mission: SPACE Race: You’ll race other astronauts or ground control to see who can get their rocket to Mars first! You can either be on Triton or Orion, and up to 56 players can race at one time. You’ll have to rely on teamwork and fix issues that come up on your rocket’s diagram in order to win. This game takes around 15 minutes to play.
Postcards from Space: Create and send an e-mail video postcard to anyone of your choosing.
Lines for the various activities at Advanced Training Lab move quickly, but sometimes you might have to wait around 10-15 minutes. It can be an even longer wait for Mission: SPACE Race; the games are 15 minutes long and you may have to wait through 2 or 3 games before you can play. You'll have to dedicate some time here if you're wanting to do all the activities. Lily loves burning some energy at Space Bases, and the whole Frog Family enjoys competing on Mission: SPACE Race!
