Doctor Doom's Fearfall

  • Amusement Park/Water Park

Updated 04/17/2015

Fodor's Review

Although the 200-foot-tall towers look really scary, the ride itself is just kind of scary (but still pretty cool). Several sets of four chairs wrap around the tower, and you and three fellow guests are seated and strapped in just out of the sight of other riders before the disembodied voice of Dr. Doom tells you the contraption is designed to extract fear he'll collect to use and rule the world. Without warning, all the chairs are rocketed to the peak, which jump-starts a surge of adrenaline as it rises, falls, rises and falls again in a very brief, but quite thrilling, experience. It's easy enough to have a second go as you can actually step off and get right back into line again. Guests who are pregnant or have heart, back, neck, or motion-sickness problems should sit this one out. For people with disabilities: Guests using wheelchairs must transfer to a ride vehicle. Line moves fairly fast, though it's crowded early in the day; come late or use Express Pass.
