Be sure to check out our thrill rides in Hollywood Studios post!
Avatar Flight of Passage
Avatar Flight of Passage is one of Animal Kingdom’s newest thrill rides. There’s no easy way to describe this unique ride except to say that it is like Soarin’ in Epcot, but you’re riding a banshee through the mystical land of Pandora. The technology is amazing- you can actually feel your banshee “breathing!” This is a very difficult FastPass+ to get, so be sure to read our guide! It’s a must-do thrill ride on your next trip!
Must be 44 in (113 cm) or taller to ride.
We love DINOSAUR! This is a fairly intense thrill ride where you travel back in time to fetch a particular Iguanadon. However, you do have some pretty close run ins with other dinosaurs. Watch out for the nasty Carnitaurus! This ride is fairly bumpy, very fast paced, and LOUD. You’ll surely love it if you’re a thrill ride seeker!
Must be 40 in (102 cm) or taller to ride.
Expedition Everest- Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
Expedition Everest is a thrill of a rollercoaster! You hop aboard the train in search of the legendary Yeti. Will you find him, or will he find YOU? Part of this coaster is in the dark, another part is backwards, it’s loud, it’s fast, and it’s a must-do! If you sit in the front row, get ready for some of the best views of the Walt Disney World Resort!
Must be 44 in (112 cm) or taller to ride.
Kali River Rapids
If you need a thrill and want to beat the Floridian heat, be sure to check out Kali River Rapids. Board your circular raft to brave the whitewaters of Asia! Be forewarned, there are drops, waterfalls, and ranging currents. You will get wet on this ride! Use the lockers just outside the queue to store any valuables, then sit back and prepare to be thrilled!
Must be 38 in (97 cm) or taller to ride.
