With more theme parks and
attraction in one spot, Orlando brings alot of thrill seekers looking
for some incredible roller coasters and rides. Our latest Top 10 List
is just for those thrill seekers. We picked our favorite thrill rides
at all of the Orlando Parks just for you.
#10. Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom - This roller coaster at Magic
Kingdom is just a classic. The thrill is being in the dark and all of
the tight spins and drops. For roller coaster buffs, Space Mountain is
just plain fun. This coaster is a good one for thrill seekers to bring
little thrill seekers for their first roller coaster experience.
#9. Expedition Everest at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park - The
newest coaster at Walt Disney World is Expedition Everest. This coaster
combines the three favorite thrills at Magic Kingdom into one. You have
the tight spins and drops like Space Mountain, train track ride
experience similar to Big Thunder Mountain, and a huge drop like Splash
Mountain. Add a scary Yeti and you will be sure to scream!
#8. Kraken at Sea World - Just the name should send chills up your
spine, especially after the recent Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
With your feet dangling, the Kraken will take you on inverted loops,
spins and drops around the Sea World park. Kraken is the tallest and
fastest roller coaster in Orlando.
#7. Doctor Doom's Fearfall at Islands of Adventure - Just watching this
ride gives most people googebumps. You are strapped in, shot up in the
sky and then...drop! You can hear the screams from Dr. Doom's Fear Fall
around Islands of Adventure. This is a great ride and an incredible
#6. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith at Disney's Hollywood
Studios - If you love Aerosmith, rock and roll, and roller coasters,
this is the ride for you. You ride in a super stretch limo with 125
speaker 24 sub-woofer sound system, as you jam to Aerosmith hits! This
coaster has a great launch from 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds with
lots of great twists and turns.
#5. Dueling Dragons...Soon to Be Dragon Challenge at Islands of
Adventure - One of our agents help built Dueling Dragons, so I know he
is partial to this thrill ride. He is not alone, Dueling Dragons turned
into one of the most popular coasters in Orlando very quickly. You can
choose one of two dragons called Fire or Ice and take a thrill ride of
a lifetime with drops, loops and twists. You even get a close call as
the dragons duke it out. Dueling Dragons (soon to be Dragon Challenge)
is must do thrill - two times.
#4. Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios - Combine a haunted
hotel and a few drops in an elevator and you will have lots of screams.
Tower of Terror has been a long time thrill ride favorite in Orlando.
Disney likes to kick up the thrills a little bit as they have changed
the drop sequences may times on this ride, so the guest never knows
what will happen next. Once you ride Tower of Terror, you will never
look at an elevator the same.
#3. Manta at Sea World - This new sleek coaster opened recently and is
already on the map for best coasters in the world. Manta allows you to
feel like you are the ray as you swoop and dive around the Sea World
park coming inches from water. The other thrill about Manta is the fact
that you are lying on your stomach face down on this coaster. It is a
new kinda of thrill in Orlando - check it out.
#2. Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Studios - The Universal
Studios Theme Parks know how to build roller coaster. This brand new
roller coaster takes you on a rockin good time through Universal
Studios with twists, inverts, and drops. Even the 1st climb straight up
gets your blood pumping. All along the way you are rocking to your
favorite type music. This is a great new roller coaster in the line up
of Orlando thrill rides.
#1. The Incredible Hulk at Islands of Adventure - Even with a new
exciting roller coaster like Hollywood, Rip, Ride and Rockit, our
thrill fans still voted Hulk as the top thrill ride in Orlando. There
is just something about this big green coaster at Islands of Adventure
that causes big screams. I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact
that you launch from 0 to 40 mph in 2 seconds and are shot right into a
loop. Whatever the reason, for thrill seekers in Orlando, Hulk is a
