Spiderman ride at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure review

Spiderman ride at Universal Studios

I’ve been on the spiderman ride at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure about,,,,oh,,,a few hundred times maybe. So I think I’m qualified to give you an honest review about it!

The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man is one of the main ride attractions in Islands of Adventure at Universal Studios. This popular theme park ride makes you feel like you are right in the action and completely involved in what is going on.

The queue line of the spiderman ride takes you through a replica of the newspaper office Peter Parker works at. At one point you enter a big room where they show a video of what is suppose to be happening in the city. Then you finally get to the ride station.

As any real fan of Walt Disney World knows, they are in the middle of a big expansion over at the Magic Kingdom. Fantasyland, the part located at the back of Cinderellas castle, will be getting a full makeover.

The plans have been changed a few times already. One new ride they seem to have agreed to keep is one called the seven dwarfs mine train ride! It will be an indoor mild roller coaster that goes through the seven dwarfs diamond mine from Snow White and the seven dwarfs.

It will be set to music from the classic movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. You can see it in the picture above in the top right side. I’m sure they would do a great job with the theme.

Walt Disney World Space Mountain ride review

Disney space mountain at the Magic Kingdom!

Space Mountain is one of the most well known attractions located in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. This popular ride is a not a typical roller coaster, as it features spatial-effects lighting, windows that appear to look out into the universe and thrills from beginning to end.

The space mountain ride at Disney’s Magic Kingdom had a total refurbishing not too long ago. The improvements make it even more fun to ride.

One great improvement is that there are two tracks side by side, and you blast off at the same time on identical configured tracks in the dark.

Disney ride height requirements, Disney rides list

Magic Kingdom rides and attractionsMagic Kingdom rides and attractions

I wanted to start the new year with lots of new content in here. One thing people want to know is all the Disney ride height requirements and looking at a Disney rides list.

It’s very frustrating when you tell your kid that he/she will get to go on a Disney ride, only to find out they don’t meet the rides minimum ride height requirements. Or you have several kids and one is tall enough but not the other.

Also Disney has so many rides in each theme park, you want a full list of Disney rides so you can see just what is there and make plans around them. Did you know the Magic Kingdom has over 35 rides and attractions!
