Most Exciting Rides for Tweens and Teens at Walt Disney World

Most Exciting Rides for Tweens and Teens at Walt Disney WorldFor some reason I thought as my kids got older vacationing would get boring because they’d feel like they were too old for certian activities, but boy was I wrong.

We took my 15, 13 and 12 year old to Disney World thinking they wouldn’t have a good time and they loved it. We’d gone to Disney a few years ago when they were still in elementary and only visited Magic Kingdom. We’d gone for Christmas thinking the weather would be amazing, but there was a terrible cold snap and we froze our buns off at the park.

This time, we got to visit all of the parks and my kids fell in love with Disney even though they arent little kids.

If you’re taking your kid who is twelve or older, here are some of the most exciting rides.

1. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at  Hollywood Studios

Not only did my teens love this ride, so did my husband and I. It’s spine tingling, heart dropping and bone chillingly scary. The drop make you want to just die. The walk leading up to ride is amazing and really sets the stage. We rode this ride during the day and night and each experience was uniquely amazing.

2. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring AerosmithHollywood Studios

Space mountian will forever me a favorite for our teens. It’s the first big kid rides they can remember getting on the very first time we visited Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The ride is so fun as you zoom through outer space. This ride really makes you really like you are traveling throug galaxies on a space ship.

4. Test TrackEPCOT

With this ride we get to put our ideas to the test by creating our own virtual vehicles. It’s usually the girls against the guys or the parents against the kids. We team up to create a virtual car before the ride, then get to test to see who’s car would win in a race.

5. Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain – Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom is one of our favorite parks and we’ve come to love this ride. The walk leading up to it replcates a trek through Mt Everest. Everything on the way up to the ride looks so realistic. Then the ride it’s self is a thrilling journey through the Himalayas with lot’s of surprising events along the way.

6. Dinasour – Animal Kingdom

This fun, mission based ride is full of loud noises, dark surroundings and dinosaurs. Anything that takes place in the dark is going to be scary and we loved every minute of it.
