TikTok, the ever-growing and wildly viral video-sharing platform, has become a major part of social media in the past three years. During 2021, songs, challenges and videos have gone viral again and again from this social media platform. The @Attractions TikTok account has also gone viral this year, with 10 videos taking the top spots.
10. Child flies the Millennium Falcon
For those of you that have taken a flight on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, you know that a good pilot can be the difference between a smooth or extremely bumpy flight. Children are usually chosen by parents as the pilots, until the experience begins and they truly realize who has the reigns on this ride. Have you ever had a bumpy ride following the route of a young captain?
9. First roller coaster at sea
Yes, we know, it’s not technically a roller coaster. But, it is the closest thing you can get while sailing through the Caribbean. The Bolt: Ultimate Sea Coaster, on the Carnival Mardi Gras cruise ship, goes up to 40 miles per hour and is 187 feet above sea level!
8. Roxispice sparkling drink at the IAAPA Expo
We reached the drink and foodie side of TikTok with this one. The Rein drink, by Roxispice, is a regular part of the IAAPA Expo experience. They always give out free tasting of their unique dry ice concoction. Freebies are always a great sales point, especially when it involves alcohol.
7. Regal Pointe Orlando movie theater
Movie theaters are all over the Orlando area, so what makes Regal Pointe unique? It looks like the entire Pointe shopping center is always going out of business. Seems like an odd bonus, but Pointe Orlando is hiding a massive movie theater with reclining seats, and usually limited crowds. And those IMAX and 4DX theaters are unlike anything else in the area.
6. Kylo Ren MagicBand’s special effects
Disney MagicBands help guests get access to their hotel room, redeem Lightning Lane options, get into the parks and make purchases. But, some special MagicBands can do even more. This limited edition Kylo Ren MagicBand lights up red and makes his saber’s signature sound when scanned.
5. Walt Disney World EARidescent Sip-a-bration drink
Looking for the most expensive non-alcoholic lemonade at Walt Disney World? Look no farther than the EARidescent Sip-a-bration, which sells for $10. Now, to be fair, this drink does come with a sparkling Disney character drop-in that transforms the drink, and you get to keep the cup.
4. We love Cast Members
Cassie, a Cast Member at Epcot, brought that extra bit of Disney magic when she told us about our chestnut pickup. What could have been a normal interaction was filled with a joke, a short song and a genuine interaction. Thanks Cassie, and all the theme park Cast Members, Team Members and Ambassadors around the world.
3. The Grinch loves Memorial day
According to the Grinch, nom-noms are the best. And, there are many holidays around the year that a Grinch could be happy about, not just a new-found love of Christmas.
2. New Marvel food at the Avenger’s Campus
Super hero approved eats are available at the new Avenger’s Campus at Disney California Adventure. Mini buns, massive meatballs and size-changing pretzels are all part of the experience. Marvel and foodie fans were watching this TikTok a lot as we shared opening day coverage at this new Disney theme park land.
1. Jack the Clown is back at Halloween Horror Nights
After not hosting an official Halloween Horror Nights in 2020, Universal wanted 2021 to be huge. Jack the Clown, and many other HHN Icons, came to provoke terror at this fan-favorite Halloween event.
