Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
This rollercoaster has you trying to escape the Yeti on one of the most iconic places in the world -Mount Everest. The story of the Yeti is played out really well from start to finish, with lots to see during your wait in line. We think this is one of the best thrill rides at Disneyworld!
Make sure your kids are over 44 inches tall before you make plans to ride this roller coaster.

You’ll fly through the dark streets of Los Angles in super-stretch limo on your way to see Aerosmith in concert. This rollercoaster takes off fast and is so exhilarating! With speeds getting over 90 km/h, you’ll zip through this ride while Aerosmiths greatest hits are blasting.

Slinky Dog Dash at Hollywood Studios
Your kids will love this cute Toy Story themed roller coaster. Slinky Dog Dash is another ride where everything was well thought out. Once again, the story plays out nicely as you wait in line right up until you ride this rollercoaster. Must be 38 inches tall to get a seat inside of Slinky Dog!

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at The Magic Kingdom
Follow along with The Seven Dwarves as they head into the mine and sing their classic tune. Just watch out for the witch and her apple. This is an excellent ride for the whole family. Not too scary but wild enough to give even the adults a bit of a thrill. Plus, the animatronics inside the mine are fantastic!

Test Track at Epcot
The whole family will love this thrill ride at Disneyworld! You’ll start by designing your test track car, then take it out to see if it can pass the tests. The last “test” is the most fun when your vehicle zooms out on the track hitting speeds up to 65 miles per hour. Kids must be 40 inches to ride.

Mission Space at Epcot
Become an astronaut and part of a shuttle mission to Mars. It’s a pretty neat ride but can be a bit much for some people. They do give you the option of choosing between two levels. The green level is more family-friendly (kids over 40 inches tall) and much gentler. The orange level is more intense and perfect for thrill-seekers!
Disneyworld’s Mission to Space can be a pretty intense thrill ride. If you are prone to motion sickness or have any health problems we recommend either choosing the green level mission or skipping this ride entirely.
