Orlando theme parks offers thrills of every kind, but there is nothing quite like a roller coaster that makes the hair on your neck stand up and your stomach feel like it’s in your mouth. If you’re a thrill seeker here are the top Orlando coasters to try:
The Incredible Hulk Coaster
From the get go, this Islands of Adventure coaster will have you wishing you didn’t just eat that VooDoo Doughnut. At speeds of up to 67 miles per hour, the Hulk puts riders through a weightless gravity roll and at one-point flies you upside down. It’s as powerful as you’d expect and will have you screaming the entire time.
There is nothing like falling straight down to make your stomach flip. You’ll experience this sensation on the world’s second tallest SkyCoaster at Fun Spot America. At 250 feet, riders will get a great view of Orlando before falling down to the ground. It’s the closest thing you’ll get to jumping out of a plane, and way more scream worthy.
Named after the pelagic shark, Mako at SeaWorld Orlando is Orlando’s tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster. You’ll reach heights of up to 200 feet and glide at up to 73 miles per hour, all while holding on for dear life.
Is there anything more thrilling than getting soaked by water and experiencing a massive drop? Infinity Falls at SeaWorld Orlando offers both. Passengers board an eight-person raft and ascend an elevator-style lift before plummeting down a 40-foot drop. All while rapids wash over them. It’s pure exhilaration.
Feel the speed of the world’s fastest land animal on Cheetah Hunt at Busch Gardens Tampa. Riders will fly high above the park and then back down through a rocky gorge along 4,400 feet of steel track. It’s fast, smooth and a huge rush.
Combining a big drop with the tale of a mythic Yeti makes Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom one of our favorites. Not only will you encounter a massive yeti, but you’ll drop 80-feet and hit speeds of up to 50 miles per hour trying to escape the beast.
