If the idea of a theme park visit makes you dream of fast paced coasters and spooky chills, then Orlando has some great offerings designed just for you. If you wish Space Mountain were a little faster, Expedition Everest was a little higher or the Haunted Mansion was a touch more scary, then you’ll love the parks on our list.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Two of Disney’s most thrilling attractions are in the same park. You’ll find both the Tower of Terror and the Rock n Roller Coaster in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, conveniently located side by side at the end of Sunset Boulevard – just follow the screams. The Tower of Terror offers a huge drop or two, along with plenty of psychological thrills. The Rock n Roller coaster features one of the best coaster launches in Orlando—you’ll go from a stationary position into an inverted loop without the typical slow first hill climb.
Islands of Adventure: This may be Orlando’s most thrilling park, with one ride after another designed for thrill seekers. From the psychological creep outs on Revenge of the Mummy to the high speed drops, twists and turns of Incredible Hulk and Dragon Challenge, you’ll find coasters aplenty at Islands of Adventure.
Blizzard Beach: Wear your swimsuit and brave the climb to the top of the mountain for Summit Plummet, one of Orlando’s highest and most thrilling rides. You won’t find safety bars or moving parts here, just you and a staggering multistory plunge. It is not unusual to see first timers climb to the top of the mountain, take a look at the slide, and climb right back down again—it’s that thrilling! Take the plunge if you dare, then stick around for the park’s other fun offerings like speed slides and slightly tamer tube rides.
