Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

Been there twice, and this ride never gets old.

Pirates of the Carribean.

I've been on both, and the CA version beats the FL version by a little. They're both great. "Pirates" isn't the fastest, scariest, most high-tech ride, but it is the one that "takes me away" from the real world the most.

I hope they don't change the ride and start putting in Johnny Depp and Keira Knightly characters, but they probably will.

Great question.

Wow, that's a hard one.

I really enjoyed the Slush Gusher at Blizzard Beach. long-arse water slide with two bumps on it. After the second bump, your behind leaves the track and you are airborne. Too fun!

However, for the best ride I've ever been on, that would be Spider-Man at Universal. Whooooooa.

Now, I haven't been to DisneyWorld in almost 15 years, but I was definitely partial to Space Mountain (insert Ric Flair joke here).

Pirates of the Caribbean, no question. (West Coast Version.)

dwaters - The ride is going down for a lengthy refurbishment in a few months -- "reliable" rumor is that they are adding at least one Jack Sparrow audio-animatronic, and a "skeleton morphing" Barbossa. I am dubious but I must reserve judgement I suppose. You can read more here (miceage.com).

I rode Tower of Terror this year for the first time -- wow, awesome. Too short, maybe, but OMG. It's definitely in my top ten, but behind PotC, Haunted Mansion, and Splash Mountain, at least. Ooh, and Indy.

Spiff, which coast did you go to? I've heard the two versions of Tower are markedly different.

Done both Florida and California and yes, they are quite different. The California 'lift' goes backwards before it goes up and doesn't travel along the star-filled corridor that the Florida one does. But it still offers as good a ride!

Well as the original question was about Disneyland or Disneyworld, I guess I'm not allowed to put the DL-Paris version of Space Mountain (kicks the butts of the other versions), so I'm going to go for Splash Mountain instead (any park).

Both times it was the FL park. I liked going on the ride at night, as it's pretty cool to see the lights on in the park right before you drop. Plus, the lines is usually shorter, making for an shorter wait to get back on the ride.

The 1st time we were there, my brother and I would try to position ourselves to get the middle seat in the back row, as there wasn't a seat in front of you to hold onto, just a seatbelt to hold you in. And, of course, you can't hold on and you have to lift your feet while dropping.

(Note: I've never been to any of the Orlando parks, nor have I cheked out California Adventure.)

Even though it's REEEEALLLY dated now, I still have a soft spot for Star Tours. Trekkies may have a technologically superior experience in Vegas, but nothing beats of the wow factor of R2 and 3PO being RIGHT THERE working on the ride I'm about to go on.

The one-two punch of Pirates and Haunted Mansion is still one of the best ever.

And I haven't been on the remodeled version yet, but I always loved Space Mountain. I hope they didn't fuck it up too much.

Anyone else miss Adventure Thru Inner Space?

I do, but I'm not sure how much I'd like it if I went on it today, you know? Although I gotta assume I'd like it more than "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience."

Spiff -- The Florida Tower is better, I heard, than the California one (which is missing the "fourth dimension" room or something like that -- Canard refers to it), while Pirates is not as good (and substantially shorter) in Florida. I guess we can't really make one-to-one comparisons.

Canard -- tell us about the Paris Space Mountain!

Short story time...

Way back in high school, we went to Grad Night at WDW in Orlando. It was a Friday night, it was a tad windy, and I was with this girl Suzie who I'd been with for almost 2 months. We had the choice of either seeing COLOR ME BAD over by the Castle or hopping in the really short line for the Haunted Mansion... the OBVIOUS choice was the Mansion because COLOR ME BAD sucked.

Less then a minute into the ride, and the electricity went out. This was kinda creepy because we couldn't see shit and people started making ghost noises and just plain being assholes. This woman comes by with a flashlight asking if we were OK, going cart to cart and she said it'll be up and running in just a few minutes.

With nothing better to do, and I guess because she thought we could get away with it, Suzie gave me a blowjob right there.

The Haunted Mansion will ALWAYS be my favorite ride a Walt Disney World.

Space Mountain stands the test of time, so it gets my nod.

It's not a ride, but in the blessed day of yore, Michael Jackson as Captain EO was the greatest 3-D show EVAR.

I haven't been there since 1996, but the attraction that seemed to blow me away just a little more than the rest is "Honey, I Shrunk The Audience".

Close runner-ups are Alien Encounter and Star Wars.

There's no way that I'd be able to do it justice, so I'll direct you to http://www.dlp.info/DLP/Lands/Discoveryland/Attractions/Space-Mountain.asp and let you read about it for yourself. They actually upgraded it to Space Mountain : Mission 2 recently, but apart from adding a few new visual effects or the ride, a slightly faster launch system and new music, it's much the same ride as described in the article.

I got back from Disneyworld a few weeks ago and rode on the Tower of Terror. I actually thought it was only a virtual ride when the Twilight Zone music started playing. Suddenly it flew up and I screamed. When we got to purchase the photo at the way out I noticed my hands were over my mouth in mid-scream.

The worst was at Epcot on the Mars Voyager experience. Within 30 seconds I was feeling around for my barf bag with my eyes closed, hoping that I wouldn't yell for help. It ruined my stomach for the rest of the day.

Do you mean the Mission: Space one that's a centrifuge ride? Because that's one of my favorite rides at the whole park. I'm also partial to Star Tours and Pirates.

Space Mountain in Eurodisney is awesome, like Canard (and the article) says. The whole experience where you are pretty much surrounded by darkness and see stars flashing by while you twist and twirl is..well..awesome!
I heard that they changed my favorite part though, where you slow down just before a huge image of a (smiling) moon and then "fall back down to earth"
This was the only slow point in the ride (I am sure the slow point is still there but apparently not the moon image)

Havent been to land/world so I say screw it, and here are my Eurodisney reviews:
Pirates is always great too, just like Star Tours. Yeah, it is kinda outdated now I guess but such a fun ride.
Haunted mansion is sweet too, and cannot forget Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. At one point it turns around the outside of the temple and there is a looping right after that. I never see it coming and it rules

Daymn..I need to go to there soon..

I can't remeber what is is called but the simulated ride was incredible. Also my daughter (10 at the time) loved Space Mountain, Rock 'n' roller coaster (or whatever it was called), and every hookey chhesy ride out there, even the tea cups. When you are with a nonjaded 10 year old, it's all pretty much great.

I bring this one up because right now, my current jones is the Chicken Milano sandwich at Quiznos. It's seasoned chicken, provalone, two types of pesto sause and I suspect a small sprinking of heroin, because they're so damn addictive.
