We asked you, our readers, to vote for your favorite food, ride, land, or activity at theme parks around the world every week. This time, we’re at Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park to rank the top 5 rides.
For the purpose of this poll, we evaluated all the rides in the park, from big to small. We then read through each answer you shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube and compiled the top five.
These are the official winners for Disney’s Hollywood Studios:
5. Toy Story Mania
Toy Story Mania, the rootin’ tootin’ 4-D Toy Story target game located at Toy Story Land does not have any age or height restrictions. This attraction offers a lot of re-rideability with its gamification aspects. Toy Story Mania also has hidden mini-games that allow riders to get bonus points to beat their competition, which is everyone else on the ride. This attraction has two separate load rooms, one of which is themed to Andy’s room and has the ride vehicles whip-around his bedroom and closet space.
4. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is the world’s first Mickey Mouse-themed ride. Located near the entrance to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this projection-mapped attraction does not have any age or height restrictions and takes guests on trackless ride vehicles through the wacky and wild world of cartoons with Mickey Mouse and friends. This ride also has numerous viewpoints and many mini storylines happening at once. You will need to ride this attraction again-and-again to catch the hidden stories.
3. Slinky Dog Dash
Slinky Dog Dash, “the wildest ride in Andy’s backyard.” This roller coaster located in Toy Story Land has a height requirement of 38 inches. The multi-launch roller coaster gives fantastic views of Toy Story Land as riders zoom, turn, twist, and bump around the colorful land. The second launch has riders pulled back before zooming forward with a second set of views overlooking Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. From first-time roller coaster riders to lovers of the Toy Story brand, this coaster usually boasts one of the longest waits in the park.
2. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, a trip from the 13th floor to the 1st in the fastest way possible. This drop-tower attraction located at the end of Sunset Boulevard has a height requirement of 40 inches. The highly-themed attraction has been a fan-favorite for years, as the haunted elevator plummets down a destroyed elevator shaft. This attraction is currently the icon of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and has been used for years as a projection-mapping feature point for the park.
1. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is one of the most ambitious rides ever created.
