MISSION: SPACE RACE ONLINE — Guests at home can now get a taste of
the Mission: SPACE experience at Epcot by playing the new “Mission:
SPACE Race Online,” an interactive game that teams in-park guests
with online participants in a race to guide spacecraft from Mars to
their home bases. This marks the first time guests at home can
“connect” with in-park guests in a game at a Disney theme park.
While played on giant screens inside the Mission: SPACE attraction
at the Walt Disney World Resort theme park (pictured), guests at
home will play along at their home computers. Teams enable their
spaceships to go faster by hitting the correct buttons to apply
“fixes” to damaged sections of the ship. The more fixes that are
applied, the faster the team’s ship will head to their home base,
with the winner being the team who first guides their ship back to
base. While already available in a preview mode, the official
launch of the online game will be May 1, 2004 at
disneyspacerace.com. In addition to the game, the site will feature
exclusive, in-capsule video of sports and entertainment celebrities
— including golfer Tiger Woods — experiencing the Mission: SPACE
thrill ride. Mission: SPACE Race-themed downloads also will be
available at disneyspacerace.com. Epcot is one of four theme parks
in Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (Photo: Kent
