Top 10 Most Thrilling Rides & Attractions at Disneyland Paris

Gregory
This is a list of the most thrilling rides at Disneyland Paris.
Thrill scale is ranked below each detail.

The Top Ten

1 Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain

This Space Mountain is unlike any other in the world.
It's the 2nd fastest ride at Disneyland, with a top speed of 44 mph, just behind Rock N' Roller Coaster's speed of 57 mph, and the only one with inversions.
There's 3 inversions on it, and pulls 4.9 g's on the riders.
Yet this SM is the only one with a launch, rather than a chain lift, and you shoot from a cannon to "outer space" in just seconds.
Not to mention the seating restraints and that it's longer and had awesome special effects, and also fact that it has a minimum height requirement of 52", so definitely no-no for little ones.

The story of this ride is that you jump to Hyperspace and then go on a space battle,with the rebels and their fighter ships, and try to defeat the bad guys.
Then you're caught in a tractor beam of a Star Destroyer, but you defeat the bad guys and go into hyperspace and then the ride is over.

Space Mountain at Disney World is the slowest and it's too rough and jerky due to ...more - Gregory

2 The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

It's the tallest attraction at Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris, and it's known for having a drop sequence, so it's the ultimate thrill of DP.
However unlike the original at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Disney World, it's shorter and has the same drop sequence for every rider, so it can get old for those who rode it many times.

3 Rock N' Roller Coaster avec Aerosmith

One of my favorite rides

It launches you from 0 to 57 mph in 2.8 seconds, and delivers 5 g's and includes 3 loops and is in the dark, yet Aerosmith blasts music into your eardrums.
The story of this one is that you're in an Aerosmith concert.
Yet the minimum height requirement is 48", so little kids will not be tall enough to ride.
Unfortunately, they're closing it soon to retheme into an Ironman experience.
They just want their $.
Thrill level: 6.5/10 - Gregory

4 Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril

It's an old looking coaster, given the theme, and the 1st roller coaster with an inversion at a Disney park, and the minimum height requirement is 55", the highest minimum height requirement for a Disney ride anywhere, so it's definitely not for kids, so most likely for those 20 and up.

5 Crush's Coaster

Love this ride. My favorite. So let's explain. You sit in a turtle shell which fits 4 people a car. You can face fowards or backwards. I always face fowards. You go up this small lift hill then you go zoom round a corner and that is the only time the ride goes outside. Then you go slowly round the fish and you see nemo and if you look up you see jelly fish. But there is more. You zoom up a lifthill and the shark jumps out then you stop for a bit. Then you zoom round corners down drops and even go sideways (but not upside down). I went backwards down this one drop and I screamed my head off. Then you slow down and the ride stops. I also forgot to mention you spin. If you like roller coaster that spin and make you scream but don't go upside down, then this is the ride to pick. This and big thunder mountain are my favorites at the park.

When you see the title and theme about Crush and related to Finding Nemo, you might expect it to be a kiddie ride, but don't let that fool you.
You go on these "turtle shells", it starts out as a dark ride, a slow ride where cars take you through specially lit scenes accompanied by animation, music, sound and special effects, think Winnie the Pooh or Piratesmof the Caribbean, then it simulates what it's like to travel through the East Australian Current, and it's a wild ride in the dark accompanied with backwards motion and spinning, along with lighting effects.
You come off and realize what a ride.

6 RC Racer

It's a simple looking Ride, yet it's a roller coaster where you go back and forth until you come to a complete stop, it's kinda like riding the pirate ship at fairs.
The minimum height requirement is 48", which is a lot for a not so extreme Disney coaster.
Thrill level: 6.5/10 - Gregory

7 Phantom Manor

So you think this will be a roller coaster if it is on top ten scary rides at Disneyland Paris but it is not this is a ride which has two sections. The first has moving portraits and fills like you are moving. The second is the ride it self when you sit on a little vehicle which fits two people and goes round phantom manor. This is a good ride to do located in frontier land next to big thunder mountain rail round. Last time I went in July it was closed for refurbishment so I couldn't ride but hopefully the next time I go I will experience it with its new refurbishment.

It's a dark ride, Scary and Thrilling are two different things - Maddox121

The ride is dark, loud, and HAUNTED!
There are phantom that greet you during the ride, so say hello.

8 Orbitron Machines Volantes

My review:like dumbo but rocket themed only scary for people who are afraid of heights. Not a must see attraction but it is good to especially at night if you want good views of discovery land

It's a spinning ride like Dumbo, but you sit on these Buck Rogers style rockets, but you spin higher and faster.
There's no height requirement, but you can control the speed if you want comfort.
Thrill level: 2/10 - Gregory

9 Pirates of the Caribbean Pirates of the Caribbean

This ride starts off as a lazy trip sailing through the caverns and scenery, and then you see Captain Jack Sparrow and his crew, you drop down a waterfall into the battle scene, and they battle along, firing cannons at you, and then with 1 blast, you drop down a waterfall towards the end.

10 Mad Hatter's Teacups

Disneyland Paris's teacups, you spin on the teacups, and you spin right round like a record teacup.
And your teacups are on spinning tables, and with all the spinning, those prone to motion sickness or have heath problems should not ride.
Although you can control the spinning.

The Contenders

11 Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Ok why is this not on the list. This ride is a mine train rollercoaster and when I went on it I thought it be slow. Well hell nah it isn't it speeds you round the mountain and it is really good. Another thing to mention is that it is actually quite a long ride which is good but also means another thing long wait time. When I went in Late July it was 45 minutes which is good to wait but not every day. However,you can fast pass it but the fast pass is also quite busy but if you don't want to wait long then you can fast pass for later. My favourite in Disneyland park and crush coaster is my favourite in Walt Disney studios so a good ride to do in frontier land before or after phantom manor

It's the best one due to the island setting - Maddox121
