When I was Florida, I went on the coolest ride ever. You get into this really detailed spaceship cockpit. The idea of the ride is that your blasting off from Earth and going to Mars in an advanced space shuttle. It is mounted on a ceterfuge so it really feels like your blasting off and flying through space. Each person has a role to play. There's the navigator, pilot, commander, and engineer, and each has a couple of buttons to push that actually do something. For example, I was the pilot and I had to push buttons to ignite the second stage boosters and deploy the shields (advanced spaceshuttles have shields I guess).

It was so cool that I filmed it with my still camera. Unfortunately, I didn't realize it was cool enough to film until about half-way through the ride, so thats how much video I have of it. Basically, all that I didn't film was blasting off from Earth, igniting a couple of boosters, flying over Florida and past the space station and getting to the moon. The video starts with slingshotting around the moon and goes all the way to the end of the ride.
