As a an enthusiast of The Twilight Zone, the Tower of Terror rests at the top of theme park attractions I am most fond of.

The attraction was created out of a passion for the television series and it most certainly shows. From the faithful recreation of the show's introduction to the facade that doesn't have the phrase "Tower of Terror" plastered anywhere on it, it's one of the most impressive examples of the work done by Disney's creative department.

I still enjoy Tower of Terror the most, even if its thrill factor was completely neutered by the installation of seat belts. It doesn't rank as high as it used to on my list of favorite attractions, but I still dig the theming and overall ambiance.

Star Tours, both old and new. Because I am a sheep and will follow anything from that universe.

Star Tours is cool. Another park I don't frequent. I've actually never been on Tower because:
1.) I dislike free fall
2.) The wife is petrified of free fall and refuses to ride it again.

I've watched the video and it looks really cool. It would probably be my favorite if I rode it just because of the ambience and creepy factor.

Can't believe no one has said RocKin Rollercoaster! If you'd asked before my recent trip, that absolutely would have been my answer. That take off is amazing. But the new Star Tours definitely wins. If I'd been by myself or with other Star wars nerds I would have gone on over and over! The new 3d is amazing!

Tower of Terror. Attention to detail for the theming is great. I'd would say its "old" now yet it doesn't feel dated, unlike the rest of the park...

I haven't been, but from the Youtube videos, I'd say The Great Movie Ride. I love movies, I love animatronics, and I love special effects (even the cheesy ones) so this would seem like a perfect fit.

But if I went I'd probably change my mind.
.... Seriously, I LOVE the Deep-Fried PB&J sandwiches w/ Bananas.

First place is a tie between TOT and RnRC because I love Aerosmith and Twilight zone, plus ToTs theming is impeccable.

Second place is Star Tours. Would he first if it was longer or had a single rider line. But I love star wars so much, and they did a great job with the re do.

Rockin' Roller Coaster. Like I said earlier, I love a coaster in the dark, and with loud music!

Rockin Rollercoaster and Tower of terror are Awesome. . . I will have to say Toy Story Mania... The work out your arm gets from yanking it (the pull string kids) is the funniest thing to watch. . . I am a big Toy Story fan. I saw the first one over 100 times in theaters. . (it ran for over a year at the dollar movies down the street from my house in Scotia NY when i was a kid.)

Star Tours 1.0 (I still haven't rode 2.0) and The Twilight Zone: Tower of Terror were my absolute favorites when I did my CP in '09 at DHS. Of course since I am nostalgic, I do have to mention my old workplace The Great Movie Ride, which was the first WDW attraction I ever rode at eighteen months old and where I was appropriately placed during my tenure as a CP participant.

Oh man... Niki, you're going to have a fangirl heart attack when you get to ride Star Tours 2.0. It is amazing. I want to be there riding it today in honor of May the 4th!

I've only been on it three times total, so I'm very jealous. Need to ride this many more times.

OK like in MK the long air conditioned rides are AWESOME! The great movie ride is fun... They need to make the movie sequence in the line a bit longer to handle the line not having to watch the same 5 minute show over and over (Spiderman is the perfect length at IOA in the room with the Scoop modle in the Center the movie last the exact lenght of getting you from the door to the exit door.) back the TGMR. . Chandler the first girl we saw do the ride was great (not to mention quite the looker!) She made the script her own and made me believe she was not acting! the other two we saw. . . NOT so much... Got the mobster each time we rode this year, kind of wanted the cowboy.
