Splash mountain - for many many reasons, to me its the complete ride

Expedition Everest - silky smooth and beautifully themed from the queue to the exit, a real 'experience'

Toy Story Mania - cracking fun

Soarin - nothing beats that music and the flight over the waves - will be better when they clean the rubbish off the projectors

Mission Space - as close as it gets to my absolute dream

and

The TTA - simple yet so many truely happy family memoriesjust pootling about on the blue train having a relax

oh yeah, thank god for that, i couldnt do them in 08 although i snuck on BTM would have been better going on the hulk really :lol:

for the first time i really took notice of a lot of what was there instead of looking which ride to go on next, took nigh on 2000 pix and people watched, which was lots of fun :D

cannot see any reason why you couldn't do soarin Mick at all - there is virtually no movement it is safer than the plane flight over or the bus ride to the park - seriously

thats the trouble chris with rides that were not there when i was well bu were when i was not, i cant tell which would be ok, i'll watch a video on youtube and see

i really dont know why they have said i cant ride them maybe strain on the heart so i dont have an HA or just the fact that they are covering themselves

no strain on the heart at all with soarin - a 90 year old could do it it is not in any way a thrill ride, I promise faithfully it will be fine , and yuo will love it - if anything it lowers the blood pressure not raising it

Splash mountain is one of my favourites, as is the Haunted mansion :yes:

I also love tower of terror and Rock 'n' roller coaster :yes:

Tower of terror has special memories for me as it's the first Disney ride I went on.

In universal/islands of adventure my favourites are Spiderman and Pluto's bilge rat barges :yes: As much as I love the hulk ride because it's a thrill ride, it's hard to theme it, and the theming is, for me, what makes American theme parks so great in comparison to English ones :yes:

I love Atlantis :yes: It's fantastic.

Another ride that not many people have done/like is 'Poseidon's fury' in IOA. I think it's fantastic and the special effects are just something else :yes:

Atlantis has some drops in it. Not as bad as Ripsaw falls or splash mountain.

Posiedon's fury is a walk-through type thing so should be fine :yes:

Tinkfan

A walk through? We'll be ther to see Harry in November and I was wondering if there was anything I could ride there?

Atlantis is 1 big drop (id say like jurassic park if youve done that) and then it goes a bit fast at the end on a coaster track.

The first time we did Posiden we liked it, didnt rate it at all last time though, they took out our favourite bit which was disappointing. Id still say do it though!
