A spectacular thrill ride through the human body propels guests beyond the pounding chambers of the heart as they race against time in "Body Wars," an action-packed adventure at Epcot's Wonders of Life Pavilion.
Motion simulation technology and special-effect film techniques combine on this fantastic journey aboard a "miniaturized" medical body probe.

Having entered the "Body Wars" lab and boarded the specialised body probe craft, you (being part of an accompanying observatory team) and your Captain, Jack Braddock, will be miniaturised to the size of a single cell, to embark on a seemingly routine medical mission. Part of that mission is to rendezvous with Dr Cynthia Lair, an immunologist who also has been miniaturized and beamed inside a patient to study the body’s response to a splinter lodged beneath the skin. Soon, however, the voyage evolves into a high-speed race against time when Lair is swept from the splinter site into the rush of the blood-stream. Beyond the pounding chambers of the subject’s heart and on through the lungs’ gale-force winds, the ship rides the body’s current in an effort to rescue Dr. Lair. Even after she’s safely on board, excitement builds as the ship loses power and heads toward the brain in search of emergency power and escape.

**Please Note that although the Wonders Of Life Pavilion is listed as 'Seasonal', it is effectively closed year round. It does occasionally re-open during peak attendance seasons, however dates are usually only announced a short while in advance.**

Tips & Fun Facts

If you suffer from motion sickness, ask the Cast Members when they'll be running a flight-check. This is when the movie is run without motion, and with the doors open and lights on.

Forty passengers can ride in each of the four 26-ton moving theaters -- actually simulators resembling those used in pilot training -- which provide the sensation of fast movement. All the excitement of a thrill ride is created by combining this movement with the 70mm motion picture footage projected inside the simulator.
"Body Wars" was directed by Leonard Nimoy, famous for playing 'Spock' in the original "Star Trek" series.
The Wonders of Life dome stands 65 foot high and covers 50,000 square feet, whilst the pavilion in total covers 100,000 square feet.

Additional Information

Guests must transfer from their ECV to a wheelchair and then from the wheelchair to experience the attraction.

There is a 40" height restriction for Body Wars

For safety and comfort, Guests should be in good health and free from heart, back, or neck problems, motion sickness, or other conditions that could be aggravated by this ride. Expectant mothers should not ride.
