Kill, Marry, Refurb: Disney World Thrill Rides

I'm joining the magnificent Mouse on the Mind for the Kill/Marry/Refurb blog hop!  This week's theme is Thrill Rides.  I'm focusing solely on Disney World (not Land) rides for this one.

1) Kill: Splash Mountain

Wah wah wah, it's a classic.  Whatever.  I hate the drop.  HATE the drop.  Plus you get wet which is sometimes uncomfortable.  Plus the line is STUPID long.  Kill it.  Murder it.  Bury it in an unmarked grave.

Honorary Mention: Tower of Terror.  Because: drops.  

2) Refurb: Expedition Everest

LOVE this ride!  The themeing is impeccable.  The thrill factor is perfect for me.  Let's just fix the bird and the Yeti and then we'll talk engagement and marriage k?

3) Marry: Space Mountain

I think I proposed to Space Mountain several years back, so it's been a long engagement, but we are happy together.  Yes, it's older and a bit creaky.  I don't mind a bumpy ride, which, so far, hasn't hurt me yet (but if it does, I reserve the right to dump this guy - no abusive relationships please!).  I LOOOOVVEEE the star tunnel music.   I love the sparklyness.  I love the Halloween overlay in the Disneyland version.  I love it all.  Let's never part Space Mountain (but I will be asking for a prenup).  We are registered at the

Thanks for reading along!  Now hop on to the next stops!

  2. Anyone who is a friend of Space Mountain is a friend of mine.

  3. Splash Mountain is SO much more than the drop - I totally feel that way about ToT, but Splash is one of my absolute fave! I say Stitch is considered a thrill ride b/c it has a height requirement... so kill that one! It's been dead for so long...

    1. I think that's part of the reason why I don't like it though! I canNOT handle the drop so I have to miss out on all the wonderful parts! :(

  4. Wait ... Space Mountain has a Halloween overlay?! How have I missed THAT?!

    Thanks so much for playing, V, and delightful to meet you.
