1. Mission: SPACE

Ever wanted to experience a NASA mission? Mission: SPACE lets your dream become a reality on this attraction! Assign a role between your 4 cadet crew and choose between the more intense Journey to Mars or a slightly less intense, but still just as a thrilling, trip to orbit the Earth. Prepare for liftoff and start your mission dodging meteorites and slingshot around the moon!

2. Spaceship Earth

Get ready for a journey through time in this attraction! See way back to when man painted on cave walls, newspapers announcing the end of the civil war and even the first landing on the moon. End by answering some questions to see what your dream future would look like!

3. Soarin’ Around the World


Get ready to experience a journey around the world in this thrilling attraction! Marvel at the different locations around the world as you’re lifted in the air travelling from the Swiss Alps, to Sydney Harbour before finishing at the Walt Disney World Resort during a firework show. Kids and parents will love the whole experience as you enjoy the aerial view, scents and motions!

4. Test Track

Begin your journey by heading to the Chevrolet Design Center and design your own car before buckling up in your 6 person ride! Whizz through tough terrain and obstacles along the winding circuit all whilst reaching speeds up to 65 miles per hour. After you’ll be able to see just how well your car has performed by checking out the scoreboard! Will you make the best car?

5. Turtle Talk with Crush

This is for the Finding Nemo fans! Gather your little ones and enjoy a talk with the loving turtle Crush as he answers all your questions about marine biology, his friends from the sea, his favourite foods, or even life on the East Australian Current. This show is improvised so each time you visit will be different and sure to be a sea full of laughs!
