10 Best Thrills at Walt Disney World



If you enjoy a good jump-scare, then this prehistoric ride is the one for you! Travel back in time to the dinosaurs’ domain, and do your best to survive as your group’s expedition faces an asteroid, a racing time-clock, and (of course) dinosaurs—some with sharper teeth, and less friendly intentions, than others!  Whether this is your first time on DINOSAUR or your sixtieth, you’ll find yourself unable to avoid some screams and surprised jumps!


Tower Of Terror

Tower of Terror

This ride’s name speaks for itself, and should be a positive sign if you’re a fan of feeling genuine fright when you’re at Disney! The journey up to the top of the ride (in an eerily-decorated tower) will already have you on edge; when you’re buckled up in a decrepit old-fashioned elevator, nerves will officially set in. Soon enough, your elevator ride will become one of abrupt, unannounced plummets towards the ground. Even though the elevator catches itself and comes back up after each fall, you’ll still find that every sheer, fast-paced free-fall makes you hold your breath in terror!

Flying the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

You don't have to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy this ride, but if you've seen even one of the famous movies, you''ll be blown away by the theming.  From the ride queue to the deck of the Falcon, where you're assigned a spot on the bridge of the spaceship, you will totally feel like you're a part of the Star Wars saga!   The ride experience itself is thrilling and requires 2 pilots, 2 gunners and 2 engineers to complete your smuggling operation for the Resistance.  The interactive experience is totally responsive and you'll feel every bump, impact and hyperspace jump.  You'll want to FastPass this experience or use the single rider line to bypass the crowds.

Summit Plummet

We've saved the best for last.  This 12 story slide can be found at Blizzard Beach, one of Disney's two water parks and its' 350 foot long, high speed descent will have you calling for your mommy!  Blizzard Beach is themed to look like a ski resort that melted and became a waterpark.  Summit Plummet is what's left of the ski jump and the coolest part is you ride a ski lift to get to the top of the slide!  Make sure you get tickets for this fantastic waterpark, whether or not you're brave enough to plummet from the summit!

If you’ve been to Walt Disney World, you already know that it has a lot to offer.  Princess meet-and-greets, magical fireworks, wonderful music, delicious food, incredible scenery—it’s all there. But Disney also has adventures and adrenaline-filled experiences in store for you, too, so the next time you’re there, give one of these exciting rides a try and let yourself be thrilled! There is, after all, always something new to discover at Disney.
