    Most Dissapointing Ride



    Overall My vote goes to the backlot tour at DHS. This ride and still could be excellent but Disney has just let it deteriorate over the years and have hardly added any new material. This could and should be an excellent ride for a movie studio park.

    Over in DLP, the Armageddon ride sticks outs as a huge let down.

    I'd say it's also DHS, but it's Arial's show. That was incredibly cheesy and predictable.

    Finding Nemo - The Musical. It was a nice place to cool off for a while, but other than that it felt like a waste of time.

    Mission Space - orange version, not because of the ride, I think it's really awesome that they can do that, but very disappointed how I felt afterwards, really not good, so we will never do that ride again, I think even not the green version

    Definitely agree with Stitch but we hated Dinosaour over in AK. It was so loud! Our kids hated that ride and my son is a huge dinosaur fan.

    Re: Most Dissapointing Ride

    I've never been on Stitch, but I think it was a very disappointing way to fill that space when the alien attraction left.

    The most disappointing ride I've actually been on is probably the backlot tour. I agree with Mike0510. It could be so much more and desperately needs refurbishing.

    I think you gotta go with Mission:Space as the most hyped up ride to be a disappointment in my opinion

    Indy Speedway. I have no idea why this wasn't scrapped years ago.

    I'd have to agree. Though unlike many, I enjoy the petrol smell, but I do not enjoy the sensitive steering or the slow speeds. If you aren't paying 100% attention, you bounce all over. I'd much rather do real go carts. Whiplash anyone?

    Stitch is ok. It's the only ride that freaks my daughter out though (she hides through most of Haunted Mansion, but she never has asked to get off...Stitch, she always wants to ride it, and then freaks out and demands to leave during the show).

    Another ride that disappoints me is the Backlot Tour at HS. It's really gone downhill from 20 years ago. (remember the bee and when they actually had stunt people during the pre-show?)

    Mission space. Yes it is realistic- however it is so realistic that I nearly had to use the sick bag and I am no stranger to turbulent rides! When we reached space, I was praying that we would not have to return to earth lol my dad and I were so traumatised that we sat there for a while and exited the wrong way! There was an announcement on a radio saying that two riders had gone missing as we had gone out the wrong way! Went on it a few years ago and never returned! X

    How recent have u been? The last time I was on the backlot tour was probably 12 years ago. I loved it! They had the set from "Home Improvement" I was in love w/Jonathan Taylor Thomas when I was younger (the word obsession isn't strong enough lol) so if course I loved that! And 20 years ago I saw them filming a Halloween episode of The New Mickey Mouse Club (w/Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and that whole gang). I will be so upset if this trip in 4 weeks disappoints
