8 Best Thrill Rides In Walt Disney World

To my adrenaline junkies out there, this is the list for you. I’m a thrill-seeker myself, so I personally love attractions that get my blood pumping! Who needs coffee when you can wake up with a wild roller coaster ride? (and then get coffee after)

1) Expedition Everest:

Are you ready to face the wrath of the yeti? If you are, take up your gear and take a train ride up to the top of Mount Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. Be careful though: the abominable snowman has ripped up the tracks, and sends you backwards down the mountain for the ultimate thrill. Will you be able to escape the yeti on Expedition Everest? You just have to be up for the adventure to find out!

2) “Triple-Mountain whammy”:

The Magic Kingdom’s triple-mountain whammy, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, is a thrill-seeker’s dream! Space and Thunder Mountain are both mid-level roller coasters that are fun for everyone looking for a thrill. Splash Mountain will take you to your laughing place with a 5-story drop into the briar patch. Next time you head out to the Magic Kingdom be sure to get your fill of adrenaline rushes on these exhilarating attractions!

3) Tower of Terror:

Hollywood Studios’ Tower of Terror is one of my favorite rides in Walt Disney World. Why, you may ask? Besides the fact that it never fails to scare me a little bit each time I ride (which I love), Tower of Terror’s elevator is completely randomized! This 13-story abandoned hotel is still in operation just for those of us brave enough to visit The Twilight Zone. You’ll never have the same stomach-dropping ride experience twice!

4) Summit Plummet:

Summit Plummet is a water slide that’s kicked up a notch on the thrill-seeker’s scale. I have to be honest: I’m still too scared to ride it. (This is mostly because you never know where your bathing suit will end up once you reach the bottom of the 120-foot drop.) So, if you’re feeling confident and need an adrenaline rush, climb to the highest point of the Blizzard Beach water park for the ride of a lifetime!

5) Test Track:

The fastest ride in Walt Disney World, Test Track, is sure to be on your thrill-seeker ride list. Warning: your hair will not look good after this ride. (Girls, I seriously recommend putting your hair up in a ponytail for this one.) After your test car goes through a simulated crash course (literally) in the future of car testing, you’ll take to the speed track and reach 65 miles per hour. Yeah, that’s fast!

6) Rockin’ Roller Coaster:

If you’re still feeling the need for speed even after riding Test Track, head over to Rockin’ Roller Coaster in Hollywood Studios. This Aerosmith-themed ride takes you from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds. Talk about an adrenaline rush! On this high-speed roller coaster you’ll fly through Hollywood in your super-stretch limo to get to the Aerosmith concert. (backstage passes included, of course) So count down from 3 with Steven Tyler, sit back, and enjoy the ride!

7) Mission Space:

Ever been to space? Me neither. But, I have been on Mission Space, and that’s the next-best thing. Epcot’s Mission Space was designed by NASA for Walt Disney World back in 2003 with new renovations for its “relaunch” in 2017. Every day since then, it has been taking guests on a simulated “mission to space.” This g-force filled ride has been split into two options: the green team and the orange team. The green team is a milder version of the original ride, which is safer for younger guests or those prone to motion sickness. The orange team is for the ultimate thrill ride, full of g-forces and barf baggies (just in case your trip to space doesn’t go as smooth as you planned).

8) Avatar Flight of Passage:

Avatar Flight of Passage is one of the two attractions located in the new Pandora – The World of Avatar area within Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Prepare to straddle what feels somewhat like one of those motorcycles at an arcade, be secured in, and then using 3D screen technology, awesome 4D effects, and motion simulation – feel like you are literally flying on the back of a mountain banshee in the most exhilarating way. Your banshee (somewhat like a flying dragon) will soar through the sky as it takes you on the ride of a lifetime through Pandora – The World of Avatar.
