    Default Best Disney thrill ride in any park?

    I've been watching YouTube ride videos lately, especially ones I haven't ridden from other parks.

    I'm wondering, from those of you that have been to the US and overseas parks, what is widely considered the best Disney thrill ride out of all of them?

    Journey to the Center of the Earth looked really cool (haven't ridden it).

    Indiana Jones at DL looks great, too.

    Or is it Expedition Everest or Tower of Terror from WDW?

    I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    My all time favorite; meaning, the ride I look forward to most because of themeing, excitement, and it just makes me feel good to ride, SPLASH MOUNTAIN!!!
    I won the "Name the crocodile" contest.
    Anyone want a slightly used Pygmy war canoe?

    This is really just a subject of opinions, I'm sure there will be a lot of different answers.

    For me, the best thrill ride would have to be EE, when I rode it the first time I wanted to ride it again and again, I still do.

    Placing second would have to be Rockin' Rollercoaster, althought it seems a bit short for a rollercoaster ride .
    "We are not now that strength which in old days, Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,-- One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will, To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    Journey to the Center of the Earth and Disneyland's Space Mountain are my top two.

    Tower of Terror - right from your first encounter with the creepy bellman to your walk through the cavernous basement boiler room to the faster than gravity yo-yo descent down the elevator shaft - can't be beat!

    Tower of Terror although the new Space Mountain at Disneyland is a close second now. Those new effects really put that ride at a new level.

    I'd have to say E:E with DLP's Indiana Jones a close second. DLP's Crushes Coaster is very cool as well, it's like a Space Mountain, but your car (shell) turns 180 degrees during parts of the ride so sometimes you are sideways to the track, sometimes backward, and sometimes forward. All "spinning" is slow and controlled, not like a loose spin...

    DH insist that Mission Space is the most intense ride he has ever rode. And thats saying alot because we are huge amusement park junkies! However, I have not yet been brave enough to get on M:S. So I can not compare it.

    As far as WDW goes I would say ToT. Simply because its never the same. It keeps you on your toes.

    For me its a tie between ToT and BTMRR as my favorites. Space Mntn is more intense but BTMRR is my favorite of the two. Of course I haven't tried EE or RnRC yet so this could change in Feb!

    I have to admit that my favorite thrill rides are all at Disneyland Paris.

    Crush's Coaster, as mentioned before, is simply amazing...we really need one of these in WDW.

    Also, Space Mountain in Paris is far superior to what we have in Florida...(I still love our's...I just REALLY loved theirs )

    Best thrill ride would have to be mission space.....it feels so darn real......so real in fact they had to change the attraction to accomodate those with lesser "stomachs"...IMHO......

    It may not be my favorite ride, but TOT is the one that gives me the biggest thrill. Second would be Mission Space and then R&R. My favorite all around ride is Splash Mountain!

    EE does it for me, but ToT is a close second.

    Well, I've only been on the rides at Disney World and Disneyland, but out of all of those, I would have to say that Expedition Everest tops the list--it's just too cool to zip backwards! California Screamin' at Disneyland is right up there too. I think Rock 'n Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror are great fun too, but after riding them so many times I don't find them quite as intense any more.

    Splash for me, very entertaining plus the thrill of the big drop. The drop still gives me a funny feeling in my stomach.
