    There are many rides and simulators that kids will really love. The Space Walk is especially popular because participants feel as if they are really in space. The ride takes them through an exploration to complete the International Space Station. Since it is motion based it is realistic and kids especially love it. Another simulator that is mission based is the Space Station. This particular simulator is also motion-based and popular because it shoots participants into the air more than 140 feet with G forces. In addition, a G-Force Accelerator spins participants while allowing them to feel more than three times the force of gravity. And, if all of these demonstrations are not enough fun for you then you will want to try the Mars Climbing Wall where you can climb up a cliff on a Martian volcano!
