Favorite Theme Park Rides

Themeeeeeeeeeeee paaaaaaaaaaaaaarks!!! Theme parks are my drug. I can't do loops but I love fast rides. I love spending the day at the park, eating junk food, running around, and being with friends.

I hate the line waiting though. 

I've only been to theme parks in the Bay Area with the exception of Disney parks. Jaime and I have a plan to one year (not sure when) to travel and hit up theme parks around the state. Until then, I will present you with my 5 favorite theme park rides! I have linked to videos of the ride if you want to check them out. 

1. Crush's Coaster - Disneyland Paris

Oh.My.God! I absolutely love this ride. It is only located in Disneyland Paris and it's theme around Finding Nemo. It's a spinning coaster dark ride and it's a lot of fun. You enter into a shell, enjoy a nice ride under water but then you get caught in the EAC and that's where the fun begins! 

2. Expedition Everest - Walt Disney World

This is another ride that is only located in one park. You take a coaster ride into a mountain and you encounter some broken track and a yeti. It's a fun ride! We rode it 5 times in a row during our last visit.

3. Grizzly - Great America

Classic wooden roller coaster located at Great America. It was my first actual roller coaster and it will always have a special place in my heart. It's old and every time we walk by it, it shakes and rattle but I will ride it always.

4. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey - Universal Studios Islands of Adventure

I have visited Universal Studios twice just for Harry Potter. The Forbidden Journey is my favorite ride. You sit down in an "enchanted bench" and take a journey through Hogwart's and surrounding area. It's such a blast.

5. Peter Pan's Flight - Disneyland

You get to fly around London and Neverland while in a boat. It's such a cute ride but it always has a long line. The rest of the Fantasyland rides will be empty but not Peter Pan's flight.

Honorable Mention: Ghost Galaxy Space Mountain. During Halloween in Disneyland, Space Mountain becomes Ghost Galaxy and a alien/ghost monster is chasing you as you ride around in space. So awesome. Lilli does not approve of it so she never rides it during Halloween.

I really want to up my theme park game so please let me know which ones are your favorites. Which ones do I need to visit? I'm going to be going to Japan this fall so I have plans for Disneyland Tokyo, Universal Studios, and Tokyo Dome. If you know of any others please let me know.

Have a good weekend!
