Our Florida Challenge #6
This challenge is pretty straight forward. Mrs Globetrotter is a wimp. Heart-pumping, adrenaline-fueled action rides are not high on my priority list in life. I hate the feeling of my lungs trying to jump out my throat or morning tea repeating itself all over the Mad Hatters Tea Cups.
My last Orlando trip I was pregnant and with a two year old so I had a brilliant excuse for copping out of all the ‘thrill seeker’ rides while Mr Globetrotter used a double Fastpass strategy to maximize his entertainment; my excuses are rapidly running out.
So here it is I am going to lay it on the table, with the assistance of Mr Globetrotter we have collated a list of the 10 biggest action rides across the Disney and Universal theme parks in Orlando. (We know there are more parks out there but these are ones we know will be on the agenda for this trip). Your job, my dear readers is to nominate which one I must ride on to overcome my perpetual hatred of these damn things!
Here they are in no particular vomit-inducing order (all rated 4+ for thrill seekers by Brit Guide Orlando):
Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey (Islands of Adventure)
The Simpsons Ride (Universal Studios)
Star Tours (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
Rock’n’Roller Coaster (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)
Splash Mountain (Tomorrowland – Magic Kingdom)
The Incredible Hulk Coaster (Islands of Adventure)
The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman (Islands of Adventure)
I will declare the “winning” ride on 24 March 2015 just before we leave.
Have we missed any big-thrill rides off our list? Do you too feel waves of nausea when Dumbo rises more than about a meter off the ground? I’m surely not alone!
