Nightmare at Disney

Disney theme parks pride themselves on having something to offer every Guest who walks through their gates. Whether you are looking for delicious food, incredible character interactions, or thrilling rides, Disney has something for everyone. While Disney does offer some fast and scary roller coasters, they realize that these attractions are not for everyone. For many fans, the irrational fear of a track coming derailed is the biggest deterrent when it comes to riding roller coasters.

Unfortunately, this nightmare became a reality for fans, according to one recent TikTok video.
