Top 10 Scary Rides and Attractions at Disneyland Paris

Here's a list of rides and attractions at Disneyland Paris that are scary to some people.

Past and present.
The Top Ten
1 Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain

It's not the fastest Disney coaster in the world, but it is the second-fastest one in Disneyland Paris, just behind Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. It's the only Space Mountain with a launch and inversions (a sidewinder, a corkscrew, and a tongue). You launch from a cannon up to 44 mph in 1.8 seconds.

It's enough to scare the poop out of you, so think twice before riding. By the way, the minimum height requirement is 52", so it's a serious ride.

It was pretty scary as it was in the dark. In a fraction of a second, it catches speed, and the coaster turns into all the angles you can ever think of. We chose this as our first roller coaster ride, so it was really scary for me. If you want this to be your first roller coaster ride, think twice before you go.

2 The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

It's a ride where you go on a haunted elevator that takes you on your own episode of the Twilight Zone. However, the elevator falls down and goes out of control.

The Disneyland Paris version is scary, but the drop sequence is the same for everyone riding, so it can get old for those riding it many times. Whereas the Disney World version has a randomized drop sequence, so it's different for everyone. Also, the Disney World one has more scenery and stuff, more story, and is longer.

This makes it more predictable, though still a scare for many in Paris. Yet the minimum height requirement is only 40", a huge understatement.

3 Rock N' Roller Coaster avec Aerosmith

You launch from 0 to 57 mph in 2.8 seconds, and it's the 3rd roller coaster at Disneyland Paris to include inversions. The 1st inversion gives riders almost 5 g-forces.

Yet being in the dark and the loud music also make it scary for many. It's so intense that it's not for anyone under 48 inches.

No longer at Disneyland Paris. Got scrapped after the new upgrade.

4 Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril

Just looking at it gives you a scare from its dark appearance. While riding it will give you a scare too. It has sharp turns, sudden drops, and a loop, all of which will take you by surprise.

Yet the minimum height requirement for this ride is a surprising 55 inches, which no other ride has. It's a no-go for kids or teenagers.

It's actually really fun if you ride it. It may be chilling, but it's still a good ride overall.

5 Crush's Coaster

Just because it's based on Crush from Finding Nemo doesn't make this a kid's ride. There's not much of a story here.

It's a ride that starts out as a dark ride with Nemo theming but becomes a wild indoor roller coaster in the dark. It spins at the same time. You'll be coming off shocked. The minimum height requirement is 42", so it's not much of a kid's ride anyway.

6 RC Racer

It's not much in design, but it is one heck of a ride. As you swing up and down repeatedly in your train before coming to a stop, it may get some people sick.

The minimum height requirement for that matter is 48 inches. No kids are tall enough to ride anyway.

7 Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a mine train roller coaster located in Frontierland at several Disneyland-style Disney Parks worldwide.

This one, like Disneyland California's, is scarier than the one at Disney World due to the dynamite effects near the end. With this one, you can really get wet, as it has a splashdown before the middle of the ride.

8 Phantom Manor

The queue starts in a strange room, which gets scary. Then you board a "doom buggy" and explore the haunted environment. There are ghosts and phantoms, and all of that can be scary to some people.

I loved it. It is like the Paris equivalent of The Haunted Mansion.

9 Pirates of the Caribbean

The ride is dark and shows skeletons and a drop leading to a pirate battle where cannons are being fired toward you. This can be scary. Also, at the end of the battle, you go down the final drop, which can also be scary to some kids.

10 Orbitron Machines Volantes
The Contenders
11 Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop

You go 25 meters high before going back down. And it's all anticipated once you get on.

12 It's a Small World
13 Peter Pan's Flight
14 Mad Hatter's Tea Cups
15 Autopia
