5. Peter Pan Flight
This ride can be found in the Magic Kingdom the original of the Disney parks. Now this ride isn't an action packed thrill ride but for me its just a bit of nostalgia. Its one of the first rides I ever went on when I first visited as a kid. Its classic Disney and takes you on Peter Pan, Wendy, John and Michael adventure to Neverland. You fly over London taking in the nursery and then all the delights that can be found in Neverland including a run in with Captain Hook.
4. Kali River Rapids
This ride can be found in the Animal Kingdom. Themed as a rafting expedition through India, this is a great ride to go on when you need to cool off on a hot day as you can almost guarantee that you'll get at the very least splashed if not completely soaked. Every time you go on this ride you never know how wet you will end up as the raft jolts and jostles in so many different directions it all adds to the fun.
3. Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
Like Kali River Rapids this ride can be found in the Animal Kingdom. Probably the most adrenalin inducing ride in the Animal Kingdom, you start with a small build up while you are waiting in line starting out in a fictional travel agency and moving on to a room with expedition equipment and then you move into what looks like a Yeti Museum. One on the ride you speed through Himalayan Mountain Villages and then you move on the Everest's Base Camp, this is where the thrill ride really begins with twists and turns, misdirection and a nice little surprise at the end before delivering you safely back to base.
2. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
This ride can be found in the Hollywood Studios park. So this was a real tough one to choose between the top two but they are super close. The build up to this ride sees you walking into the recording studio where Aerosmith can be seen. You are told that they need to get to their live show across town and then they make sure their manager get some 'super' stretch limos for you. You then move on to the queue which looks like a backstreet car lot where you are met with the limo to take you to the show. Once strapped in you are shot off into the LA traffic. A quick ride with lots of loop the loops, twists and turns with neon signs illuminated as you move around while Aerosmith songs blast in your ears. You are dropped off outside the show with a red carpet reception.
1. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
Again this ride can be found in the Hollywood Studios park just a stones throw away from the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. Another of the thrill rides. The build up starts almost immediately as you enter the reception of the abandoned hotel and you are show a short film detailing the events that lead up to the hotel being left to ruin like it has done. You then move in to the back rooms of the hotel where you are taken to the service elevator where you are seated and your ride begins. The best part about this ride is once you have moved through all the story and the tension has built up to breaking point you are suspended for what seems like and age not knowing if you are going to be dropped in this elevator or thrust up into the air before you are thrust and dropped numerous times before being dropped back off on the ground floor. I have to say this ride is always at the top of my list and one not to be missed.
These are just my top 5 rides and believe me it was so hard to choose because they have so many wonderful rides to offer everyone not just thrill seekers like me. I also have to say that each time I visit Disney World I change my mind on which rides I love the most I honestly just love theme parks and Disney so combining the two is just a dream come true for me!
