While you are at the Animal Kingdom, head over to Asia to take on the Yeti! With speeds up to 50 miles per hour this 4,424-foot long coaster goes forward and then backward and then forward again!
Rockin Roller Coaster
Who doesn’t want to go from zero to sixty miles an hour in less than six seconds? If not there are several inversions all set to Aerosmith’s classic tunes. Housed completely inside this coster only reaches heights of 80 feet but still manages to pack in a big thrill.
I am not up to the challenge of a mission to Mars but if you are a thrill seeker this is just the ride for you. Co-developed with Nasa if you choose team Orange you will experience an intense g-force just like a real astronaut. Good news if you are a bit of a chicken like me there is a Green team which allows you to experience the attraction with no spinning or intense stuff.
Tower of Terror
Don’t let the slow start to this ride fool you, you will love the 50-foot plunge into the briar patch and by the way, smile, they will capture you going over the drop.
