Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    Love the Moms! I am a big chicken! I don't like roller coasters, or anything that goes upside down. My ? is how can I tell which rides would be considered thrill rides, and which ones I think I could brave? Thx SO much!

    Hello fellow chicken!  I typically skip the big rides, too, and think that Dumbo The Flying Elephant is just the right speed and height for me :-)

    Here is my list of rides I skip and those I brave:

    Magic Kingdom attractions I avoid:  Astro Orbiter

    Magic Kingdom fast-ones that I try to do:  Splash Mountain (does have one large drop, but otherwise is pretty smooth), Big Thunder Mountain, and Space Mountain (this is fast and in the dark, but no upside down; I usually work up the courage for 1 ride and then call it quits while my family rides it many other times) 

    Epcot attractions I avoid:  Mission Space

    Epcot fast-ones that I try to do:  Test Track, Soarin

    Disney's Hollywood Studios attractions I avoid:  Rock n Roller Coaster, Tower of Tower, Star Tours

    Animal Kingdom attractions I avoid:  Expedition Everest (this is like Space Mountain for me; i do try to get on it at least once - it is very fast and dark, feeling like it does go upside down) and Primeval Whirl

    Animal Kingdom fast attractions that I try:  Kali River Rapids and Dinosaur (can be scary & bumpy)

    All the rest that I didn't list are all ones I love!  I hope this helps in your planning.
