Head over to Adventureland to experience the thrills of riding a coaster all through dark and bizarre jungle ruins as you are rushed at high speeds around the ruins taking turns and loops to be able to escape from whatever creatures and traps that may lurk in the darkness. A Whip cracking adventure For your teens.
Opened on 30th July 1993, it is rollercoaster, which lasts for 1 minute 30 seconds and 12 guests are seated per mine train, this one is also extremely popular, so I would advise heading straight for this when you enter the park.
2. Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast
“To infinity and beyond”. Join Buzz Lightyear in his battle to defeat the dark emperor Zurg by equipping your laser blaster and blasting your way through different planets in an attempt to find and destroy Zurg. The Ride features an arcade like shooter experience with free 360 degree rotation of your vehicle throughout the entire ride, shoot the targets around you to get a high score (maybe try beating the parents score like our children did, but I was the ultimate winner, they couldn’t beat me!) the entire ride focuses around the idea of children playing with toys and imagining stories so in the walkway up to the ride you see boxes and instruction manuals to really get that toy story feel. Go for the highest rank of Galactic hero. Ready up Space rangers!
Opened on 8th April 2006, it is an Interactive dark ride, which lasts for 5 minutes and 2 guests are seated per XP-41 Space Cruiser, this one is extremely popular, but does have a tendency to break down quite often, so i’d advise getting a fastpass, or queue up for it at the end of the magic hours just as the entire park is about to open.
3. Space Mountain: Mission 2
Close your eyes, open your mind and blast off into space with Space Mountain: Mission 2 which will take you in a rocket to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. This Galactic titan of a rollercoaster is a perfect one for just teens. You begin by blasting off as it shoots steam everywhere, then you twist and turn through space with great special effects of space that really makes it seem like you’re out there with the stars. This ride was our three teenager’s favourite ride which they went on everyday we were there.
Originally opened on 1st June 1995, it was relaunched on 9th April 2005. The Rebel Alliance has staged a daring takeover of Space Mountain: Mission 2, with all-new special effects transforming the roller coaster into a full-force Star Wars thrill ride known as Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain: Rebel Mission.
It lasts for 2 minutes and 10 seconds, and is definitely not for the faint hearted, so if you are a roller coaster lover, this one is for you!
