Most Masochistic Disney Rides

Disney Rides that are loved and thrilled by those with a pleasure of pain or discomfort.

The Top Ten

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

It creates G-forces during liftoff, lunar orbital insertion, and reentry that are extremely painful, intense, and make your brain feel like it’s gonna be crushed flat and fall right out of your skull.

Also, the feeling of weightlessness adds to it, and it’s just hell in your head and body.
It makes you learn and realize the stresses real astronauts go through in training and spaceflight.

I haven’t been on this ride before, and neither has my son, but those stories he saw of people’s times there and his subjects with me got me putting this on here at #1.
It’s the perfect Disney ride for a masochist. - Gregory

I had the ‘Brilliant Decision’ to ride this ride one day with my dad and brother. Hopped on green version, we were fine, so we decided to try orange. We got off the ride and ended up having to leave because of the sickness we had gotten. The g force pushes your whole body against the back of the seat, and you can’t move. It feels accurately what I think a real launch would feel like. (by the way, I’ve rode every ride at WDW, and this is the only ride that’s maken me sick. rocking Roller Coaster is actually my FAVORITE ride, with the perfect amount of thrill. Mission Space, on the other hand, is frightening and horrifying, every second of the ride you’re hoping it’ll end.

2 The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (Disney's Hollywood Studios) The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, also known as Tower of Terror, is an accelerated drop tower dark ride located at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Tokyo DisneySea, Walt Disney Studios Park, and formerly located at Disney California Adventure Park. Except for the Tokyo DisneySea version, the attractions more.

It has a drop sequence, which is pretty intense, and it has lots of drops that’ll get your gut and brain from the negative and positive g-forces.
Whiplash ensues, so perfect for masochists and fear seekers.
Expect to get an elongated neck like a giraffe when you drop. - Gregory

3 Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain (Disneyland Paris)

It’s the biggest, fastest and most intense Space Mountain in the world.
It goes 44 mph and includes 3 inversions and a tongue twist that produce g-forces that’ll whip your head and brain and make it feel like it’s being crushed and ripped apart at times.
Yet the music and sounds are really loud, so that’ll hurt ears.

I haven’t been on it before, and that’ll cost a thousand dollar international flight to Paris, the nature of it got me putting it on here.

It’s often compared to Rock N’ Roller Coaster in noise and intensity, but it’s a much longer duration.

Although there are rides outside of Disney parks that are far more masochistic, this is a perfect one in Disneyland Paris that’ll please masochists. - Gregory

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

It goes from 0 to 57 mph in 2.8 seconds, so you really need to keep your head back or you’ll get whiplash, also it includes 2 loops and 1 corkscrew, as the g-forces from them will get your body and head.

Also, the worst in terms of pain or discomfort takes place in the backseats, where you’ll get whipped far more and banged in the over the shoulder restraints and get a major headache.

Yet the music is extremely loud and will mess with your ears.

I and my son haven’t been on here before, and I know from the nature of it that it is one intense ride. - Gregory

5 California Screamin’ (Disneyland)

It’s the wildest ride at Disneyland, and includes a launch from 0 to 55 mph in 4 seconds, large bunny hills, turns, drops, a loop, and preceding onwards with more drops and turns and bunny hills until the ride finally ends.

The drops are gut wrenching and the loop is crushing and dizzying(especially for those prone to motion sickness), and it’s sure a ride to get your heart rate rocketing.

They tell you to keep your head back, as it’s a ride with a powerful beginning to end that’ll give you whiplash especially if you mess around. - Gregory

6 Expedition Everest (Disney's Animal Kingdom)

There’s the portion where you go backwards on a helix in the dark at 50 mph, and it induces strong g-forces, so your head and neck will be lurched.
That’ll get your brains.

Also, there’s the 80’ drops, which’ll also get your heads, stomachs and hearts.

It’s a decent ride for masochists. - Gregory

7 Autopia (Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, Disney Paris)

Even though the cars move so slow, they can bump on one another rather very hard, so that may cause whiplash.

Also, the track is guided, so the cars often bump into the guides, causing further whiplash.

Definitely a ride for masochists. - Gregory

8 Primeval Whirl (Disney's Animal Kingdom)

It might be deceiving of a ride, but the turns are very sharp and will jerk you around, causing whiplash, and the cars spin at the same time, further increasing the chances of whiplash.

And they can’t be controlled(as they’re automated), and you can’t help but fear about the possibility of any injuries (unless you’re a masochist).
So Disney parks have things for masochists. - Gregory

9 Dinosaur (Disney's Animal Kingdom)

It’s a extremely rough and jerky ride back in time to find the dinosaurs, and it’ll hurt your back and neck if you have any problems with them.

The dinosaurs are loud, so that’ll also hurt ears.

Perfect dark ride for masochists. - Gregory

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

This is the only Space Mountain besides the one in Paris that is pleasing enough for masochists.

I know this might not seem like so much to other people, but the tracks are rough and jerky, from old age and use, and many people come off with back and neck pain or discomfort.

The Disneyland California and Tokyo Disneyland ones are much smoother, so masochists won’t find them pleasing.

If it got refurbished, it would be a perfect ride for many good people, but it would be a huge disappointment for masochists. - Gregory

The Contenders

11 Matterhorn Bobsleds (Disneyland)

My sister and I went on this and my back and sides kept bumping everywhere. It didn’t bother me, and it was a lot of fun to ride.

It’s jerky, so that’ll hurt your backs and necks, as well as your heads, so it may cause whiplash. - Gregory

12 Snow White’s Scary Adventures (original Magic Kingdom version)

The witch just jump scares you every ten seconds. ONE HECK OF A NIGHTMARE!

13 Goofy’s Sky School (Disneyland)

It’s a wild mouse, so it has sharp hairpin turns that’ll jerk you and hurt your back, neck and head, and cause whiplash.
It might look innocent, it it’s honestly a good ride for a masochist. - Gregory

14 Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris) Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a mine train roller coaster located in Frontierland at several Disneyland-style Disney Parks worldwide.

It’s kind of a jerky ride, so it’s ok for masochists, best for them if they take the backseats. - Gregory

15 Summit Plummet (Disney's Blizzard Beach)

You drop 120 feet down from 50 to 60 mph (depending on your weight), and it's really intense and will hurt your butt and over-exfoliate and burn your skin when you get to the bottom. - Gregory

16 Slush Gusher (Disney's Blizzard Beach)

Smaller than Summit Plummet, but still big, a wild slide to burn you and wipe you out. - Gregory

17 Crush N' Gusher (Disney's Typhoon Lagoon)

It's a series of 3 water coasters, the Banana Blaster, the Coconut Crusher, and the Pineapple Plunger.
Each has its own thrills, and roughness in their middles, banging your butts throughout the ride.
Masochists might want to try them out. - Gregory

18 Slinky Dog Dash (Disney's Hollywood Studios)

It's on here because it's not simply the ride experience that's masochistic, but the fact that most of the Queue is shadeless and has poor air conditioning and at the same time you're standing on hot concrete and getting your feet and shoes burnt.
Yet the air conditioning isn't enough to cool you down enough and the heat from all the people's bodies just makes the wait worse.
Wait times can be long and most of that time is in these horrible conditions.
Don't go on it unless you're a masochist. - Gregory

19 Extraterrorestrial Alien Encounter (Magic Kingdom)

Definitely a good choice even though it’s no pain! Just nightmare fuel to kids
