As you enter the MOST’s Horowitz Traveling Exhibit Area, you take a step into the future. Welcome to Space Dock: Orion motion simulator and Laser Maze.
Orion can take you to the past, into space, or for a one-of-a-kind roller coaster ride. It’s a motion simulator, which uses a combination of hydraulic movement in six directions, first-person point of view, and lifelike sounds to make for a realistic experience.
Because of the ride’s intense nature, you cannot ride Orion if you are younger than 3, pregnant, claustrophobic, prone to motion sickness, or have neck, back, or heart problems.
Orion alternates between two shows, “Barnstormers 2000” and “Rate Race.” Shows alternate every 30 minutes, 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Make your way through the Laser Maze to save Space Dock. An alien being that looks remarkably like a whale has drained Space Dock’s power and it’s spiraling down to Earth below. You need to navigate the laser maze as quickly and with as few breaks as possible to rescue Space Dock and yourself. Finish quickly before Space Dock enters the atmosphere!
Each ride costs one token, which can be purchased at Admissions or in the Science Shop. Tokens are $2 each or 6 for $10.
