Top 10 Rides at Walt Disney World that You'll Need to Fastpass
I once Fastpassed this ride, and I still had to wait a little over an hour!
The lines for some of these are super long. Most are not worth it, this included.
At Epcot. Great for Frozen fans and little girls. Is it scary? It may be scary for young ones because of the drop and the part where you go backwards.
At Magic Kingdom. Great for ages 8 and up. Is it scary? It won't make a good first ride for your kids if they don't like to sit alone. Also, people who are afraid of the dark or heights may need to skip this ride.
At Disney Hollywood Studios. Great for fans of Aerosmith or thrill-seekers. Is it scary? Yes! It's very scary. You go from 0 to 57 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds into a dark building leading you through 2 inversions and a corkscrew and many turns. It also has 900 speakers.
At Disney Hollywood Studios. Great for fans of Toy Story and all ages. Is it scary? Maybe if your kid isn't used to 3D, but besides that, no.
Scariest ride I've been on. And I've been on a lot of rides.
From where I live, the nearest to me is at Disneyland in Critter Country, whereas Disney World's is in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom. If you're scared of heights and drops, then this will scare you pretty big. It has a 52.5-foot drop at a 45-degree angle, and the scenery and music leading to the drop are also enough to scare you, whether or not you know that there's a big and steep drop coming. It's good for cooling off though if you don't like being hot, as it does make you wet. However, it contains bromine, which, while safer than chlorine, is linked to cancers.
At Adventureland at Magic Kingdom, it's said to go 36 mph, unlike Disneyland's, which is 28 mph. I read it's not really scary, unlike Disneyland's, which has a part where they're about to "blow up the mountain" with dynamite (even though it never really blows up on the ride).
It's not really scary unless you're even the least bit afraid of heights and the dark, but some of the other rides on the list put this to shame.
I haven't been on it, but I have read it's scary for those afraid of heights and a bit of dropping. Yet, it's pretty high on the motion sickness factor for people. Though it's extremely scary for those who can't take the heat, as you have to wait a while in a mostly shadeless line with the Sun's rays beating down on you.
It's thrilling and scary for those prone to motion sickness.
It's a ride that simulates hang-gliding around the world. It's scary for those afraid of heights or prone to motion sickness.
