Disney World is the kind of place that you want to revisit again and again no matter your age. If you are looking for thrills, then there are many rides that offer exactly that. Here is just a small selection of some of the funnest rides you’ll be able to go on.
Depending on the length of your stay, you can opt for flexible tickets which give you access to a number of different parks over a span of 14 days, or if you are on a bit of a time crunch you can purchase tickets to the individual attractions you plan to visit during your stay. Keep in mind that you can also enjoy savings if you go for the combo deals which grant you access to numerous attractions across Orlando.
Rock and Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith
More commonly known as the Rock and Roller Coaster, this steel roller coaster takes you on a fun limousine ride which speeds from from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a matter of 2.8 seconds. The ride goes through a recording studio where five members from Aerosmith are playing, and then proceeds on a series of spins and loops before arriving backstage at the band’s concert.
Tower of Terror
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is a free fall drop ride which is based on the show The Twilight Zone. Before entering the elevator, guests are shown around the hotel and then told about the mysterious disappearances which occur in the hotel.

This is one ride that will have you screaming over and over again.
Also known as Countdown to Extinction, Dinosaur is a ride in Animal Kingdom that takes guests on a turbulent journey through the Cretaceous era in a life threatening assignment to save the dinosaurs from extinction.
