Passengers are transformed into futuristic astronauts when they enter Disaster Transport, a roller coaster space adventure. Before blasting off on their journey, guests will tour a battered suborbital launching facility complete with rocket recovery and mission control rooms. During their mission, riders encounter attacking space pirates, exploding asteroids and a laser-beaming satellite along the way. Nearly 1 million riders sped through space on Disaster Transport in 1995 alone.
