Top 10 Worst Disney Attraction Refurbishments


The Top Ten

1 Maelstrom - Frozen Ever After

What a great idea, Disney. Get one of your best rides and turn it into something based on one of the most overrated movies in history. - railfan99

2 Journey Into Imagination - Journey Into YOUR Imagination

The original Journey Into Imagination was absolutely amazing. Journey Into YOUR Imagination was horrible. The public hated it so much that Disney closed the ride just TWO YEARS after its opening. - railfan99

3 Horizons - Mission: SPACE

Disney, why would you replace Horizons with a ride that has INJURED HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE?! - railfan99

You don't have to reply twice you know... plus, here's why I put this here: From June 2005 to June 2006, paramedics treated 194 Mission: Space riders. The most common complaints were dizziness, nausea and vomiting. Of those 194 guests: 25 people passed out, 26 suffered difficulty breathing and 16 reported chest pains or irregular heartbeats - railfan99

4 Twilight Zone Tower of Terror - Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout!

I agree that they shouldn't have closed Tower of Terror, but Mission Breakout is still pretty fun. - MegaSoulhero

Surprised this ain't at #1 yet.

Again, replacing an iconic ride to get more money from people. SMH, Disney - railfan99

5 Peoplemover - Rocket Rods

What happens when you have a high speed ride on an older structure? It damages it, and frequently breaks down. Rocket Rods was extremely unreliable, and broke down at least once a day. - railfan99

6 Space Mountain (1975 Version) - Space Mountian (2009 Version)

Too dark, you can't see anything. - railfan99

They just refurbished the lighting again, but all you can really see are tiny stars and barely anything else. - Gregory

7 Journey Into YOUR Imagination - Journey Into Imagination With Figment

Journey Into Imagination With Figment is better than its predecessor, but nowhere near the 80s version. - railfan99

8 The Great Movie Ride - Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway

Once again, closing a great ride and turning it into something based on two of the most annoying characters in anime history. - railfan99

9 Ellen's Energy Adventure - Guardians of the Galaxy Ride

Doing it to get more money. Cough. Cough - railfan99

10 Test Track 1.0 - Test Track 2.0

I'm neutral to "Tron Track" - Maddox121

I myself don't hate this refurb anymore, but there are a lot of people who do. - railfan99

The Contenders

11 Paradise Pier - Pixar Pier

That’s stupid.

12 The Extraterrorestrial Alien Encounter - Stitch's Great Escape

Worst Disney move, they turned one of the best Attractions into the worst.

UGH This was the WORST! They turned a great attraction and turned it into garbage.

That was horrible

13 California Screamin’ - Incredicoaster

Awful. Really shows how Disney doesn't care about the CA parks.

This is part of the Pixar Pier refurb. - railfan99

14 Disney's California Adventure - Disney California Adventure Park
15 Imageworks (1982-1998) - Imageworks: The What-If Labs (1999-present)
16 Snow White's Scary Adventures - Meet and Greet

Terrible, do I need to say more? - Maddox121

17 Space Mountain: De la Terre a la Lune - Space Mountain: Mission 2
18 The Barnstormer at Goofy’s Wiseacre Farm - The Barnstormer ft. The Great Goofini

I used to ride this a long time ago, it was when it was original and classic, and we crashed through a barn, and now, Disney changed it to fit with the new Storybook Circus after closing down Toontown Fair.
Apparently, you don’t crash through a barn anymore, but a billboard.
I don’t get why it’s still called the Barnstormer.
They ruined a wonderful ride.
