Disney Rides that Cause Motion Sickness

We all want to have a fun time at Disney parks, but there are some rides that can get us sick.
The 1st is a popular and well talked about example.
Here's the list.

The Top Ten

Mission: Space (Epcot) Mission: Space is a centrifugal motion simulator thrill ride at Epcot in Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.

My family and I rode this and no one got sick

Yes, our family goes on this and I can't go on this particular ride. Mission Space, and Space Mountain get me sick every time.

It simulates the forces felt during launch and orbit, as well as landing, and in fact, they're all too overwhelming, that they cause motion sickness to many riders, especially if they're any prone to motion sickness and/or have a history of it.
The forces replicate a real space mission, and those who never go to space have never experienced these forces before, and even many of those who enjoy pretty much any ride will have problems with this one.
The G-forces are mind-blowing, continuous, excruciating, and will make breathing impossible and give you facelifts.
The motion sickness is worsened if you look away from the screen or close your eyes, as well as having a headache, an inner ear problem, and a history of migraines, vertigo and elevated anxiety.
And like real astronauts, you may experience motion sickness even if you've never experienced it before.
There's a reason why they have barf bags. - Gregory

Tower of Terror (Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disneyland Paris, Tokyo DisneySea)

It’s the scariest ride in either Disney park, and it features gut wrenching drops that could make you throw up and aggravate motion sickness.
It’s also very scary for all the reasons made.
Tokyo’s isn’t the Twilight Zone, but it is still a scary and intense ride. - Gregory

Mad Tea Party (Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, Disney Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland)

My sister and mom forced me on this ride at Disneyland. I attempted to spin the cup really fast to get revenge on them for forcing me on the baby rides. Unfortunately I couldn't spin it fast enough :(

It might be a tame ride enjoyed by many, but it’s a spinning ride, and spinning may aggravate motion sickness. - Gregory

Mickey’s Fun Wheel (Disneyland)

It goes around and to top it off, one level has the gondolas swing around a crazy pattern as the wheel spins, aggravating motion sickness on some riders. - Gregory

Primeval Whirl (Disney’s Animal Kingdom)

This is too tame

It’s a combination of a wild mouse roller coaster and a teacup ride, and unlike the teacups, there’s no way to control the spinning, and also, since it’s a wild mouse coaster, each turn is sharp and jerky.
It’s gotten a bad reputation for causing whiplash on many riders, and more thoughtfully, aggravating motion sickness. - Gregory

Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain (Disneyland Paris)

It’s the most famous roller coaster at Disneyland Paris, and it’s a space themed roller coaster that takes place in darkness, and contains a launch, which will take you by surprise, and it has 3 loops and a tongue twist, aggravating motion sickness on some riders.
Yet darkness means you can’t see which was is up and which way is down.
It has a minimum height requirement of 48”, so it’s big. - Gregory

Rock N’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith (Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disneyland Paris)

It’s the biggest and baddest roller coaster at Disney World and one of the biggest at Disneyland Paris, and features a huge launch at the beginning and 2 loops and 1 corkscrew.
Those may cause motion sickness, and since it’s in the dark, there’s no telling which way is upside down or right side up. - Gregory

California Screamin’ (Disneyland)

It was a launched coaster, so it has a launch, and it shoots you through a series of climbs, turns, drops, and a loop in the middle.
It is the only ride at Disneyland Cafornia with an inversion, and may aggravate motion sickness in sensitive riders. - Gregory

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril (Disneyland Paris)

It’s not a very big roller coaster, but it does have sharp turns and sudden drops, and it has a loop in the middle, and you may get motion sickness during it.
It has a minimum height requirement of 55”, higher than that of any other Disney ride. - Gregory

Raging Sprits (Tokyo DisneySea)

It’s like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril at Disneyland Paris, and includes sharp turns, sudden drops and a loop in the middle.
Thought the minimum height requirement for this one is 46”, it’s a pretty similar coaster and may cause motion sickness on some riders. - Gregory

The Contenders

Star Tours: The Adventure Continues (Hollywood Studios, Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris)

It’s a simulator ride that has lots of sharp movements that can aggravate motion sickness on riders prone to it.
It’s gotten quite the rap on it. - Gregory

Thunder Mountain (Disney Paris)

It’s a roller coaster period. - Gregory

Avatar Flight of Passage (Disney's Animal Kingdom)

A flying theater simulator ride similar to Soarin’, but better and much more immersive and thrilling.
It’s known to simulate flying on a banshee over Pandora.
Many people have gotten motion sickness aggravated from it. - Gregory

Space Mountain (Disneyland) Space Mountain is the name of a space-themed indoor roller coaster attraction located at five of the Magic Kingdom-style Disney Parks.

It’s a roller coaster in the dark, so there’s no up or down reference for most people to tell.
Plus, there’s sharp turns and sudden drops.
All of which may aggravate motion sickness. - Gregory

Slinky Dog Dash (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)

Located in the new Toy Story Land area, it has lots of sharp turns and sudden drops, including the last 4 bumps, which are sudden, yet generate fairly significant airtime, and can cause/aggravate motion sickness.
It’s also fairly tall for a Disney roller coaster, and it’s open heights, so it’s not good for those with vertigo.
It’s high on the motion sickness factor. - Gregory
