Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit. On this superwild coaster, you select the soundtrack.
MEN IN BLACK: Alien Attack. The "world's first ride-through video game" gives you a chance to compete for points by plugging away at an endless swarm of aliens.
Revenge of the Mummy. It's a jarring, rocketing indoor coaster that takes you past scary mummies and billowing balls of fire (really).
Shrek 4-D. The 3-D film with sensory effects picks up where the original film left off—and adds some creepy extras in the process.
