It’s time for another round of Kill Refurb Marry with Mouse on the Mind and This Happy Place Blog! This month we are choosing thrill rides. This one was actually pretty easy for me. I have one that I never go on, one that I wish I could ride more often, and one that I am madly in love with.
Kill – Tower of Terror
Do I love seeing the Hollywood Hotel at the end of Sunset Boulevard? Yes. Do I love the theme of this attraction Yes. But neither of those things make me want to fall straight down in an elevator. I first rode the Tower of Terror when I was in middle school. Wasn’t a fan. I decided to give it one more try when Drew and I visited Hollywood Studios for the first time together in 2001. Hated it. I was so worried about the drop that I couldn’t enjoy anything leading up to it. So if Disney suddenly decided to do away with this particular attraction I really wouldn’t be that upset about it.
Refurb – Space Mountain
I haven’t been on Space Mountain at Walt Disney World in years. Trying to get down into the ride vehicle is hard for me. But when we were in Disneyland I was able to ride one of my childhood favorites again. They have a great set up where they can move one of the ride vehicles to a separate loading area for wheelchairs. This means you can take your time, there isn’t anyone staring at you, and they have a nifty contraption that helps you transfer down into the ride vehicle. I have no idea if it is even possible but I would love for a change like this to occur at Walt Disney World. I miss the queue’s back ground music.
Marry – Expedition Everest
I love everything about Expedition Everest. Well except the Yeti but that is an entirely different post. The attraction itself is gorgeous, especially at night. The queue has so many beautiful details that we skip getting Fastpasses so we can go through the standard queue. The ride vehicles are also well themed and are super easy for me to transfer in and out of. And the ride is fun, and most importantly for me, smooth. I can ride Expedition Everest multiple times and my back never complains.
