ATTRACTION EXPERIENCE:

Line up for a rocket adventure. Board the elevator/lift to the flight deck and then head for your rocket. There is a bench like seat running along the middle of the rocket and at the front of the rocket is the level control stick. While in motion you can use the lever to move the rocket up and down. There is a great view from this ride and kids love it because there is no height restriction. However beware of long queue times.
