Control, we were the first to go through the heart, lungs and brain!
Dr. Cynthia Lair

Body Wars was a motion simulator ride in the Wonders of Life pavilion at Epcot. The premise of the attraction had guests shrunk to survey a mission carried out inside a human body. The ride film was directed by Leonard Nimoy, and utilizes the ATLAS simulation technology used in Star Tours.

Attraction Description


Guests enter the queue as "observation team members" recruited by MET and are told by overhead announcements that they must pass the "level 1 and level 2 dermatopic purification screens" to enter the body-probe vehicle. In the queue and loading area, announcements are made about details of the four bays.


Dr. Cynthia Lair has volunteered to be miniaturized and enter a patient's body to observe how white-blood cells attack a splinter. The guests are told they will board the Bravo 229 probe vehicle with Captain Braddock piloting the ship to go inside him and meet up with Dr. Lair and bring her out. Guests learn that their "LGS 2050"-type probe vehicle weighs approximately 26 tons, but once miniaturized, weighs less than a drop of water.

Guests aboard the Bravo 229 vessel travel through a capillary.

The gustes' vehicle, Bravo 229, moves from the loading bay to the miniaturization chamber, where technicians focus a "particle reducer" on the ship. Their ship and crew mates are miniaturized and sent under the subject's skin. When inside the patient, they see white blood cells on their way to destroy his splinter. 

The guests arrive at the splinter, meeting with Dr. Lair as she begins to take a cell count when she is accidentally pulled into a capillary. Braddock follows her into the vein, entering an unauthorized area. Braddock steers the vessel past the heart and into the right ventricle. The guests enter the lungs where Dr. Lair is being attacked by a white blood cell. Braddock uses his lasers to free her and have her come aboard. 

By now, the ship is very low on power. Dr. Lair suggests that they use the brain's energy to recharge the ship. Passing the heart's left atrium, the ship goes through the artery to get to the brain. A neuron contacts the ship, allowing it to regain power and de-miniaturize outside of the patient's body. The team members are congratulated upon exiting his body for a successful rescue as guests exit the craft.
