Disney World’s Mission Space ride is an Epcot attraction that simulates a space shuttle launch and voyage to the planet Mars. The ride allows people to fulfill their fantasies of being an astronaut by being on a 4 person crew with responsibilities to accomplish a successful mission. At the beginning of the mission, the crew straps themselves into their seats to experience the tremendous force of liftoff. The highest level of experience on the ride uses a centrifuge that spins and tilts to simulate speed and G-forces during launch and re-entry.
The Rose Corporation contract manufactured the center hub of the centrifuge:
