10 Disney Rides That Make Me Sick

Leap and the kids like to tease me about it, but I’ve been known to turn an even brighter shade of green on certain rides. Mad Tea Party at Magic KingdomIf you get motion-sickness like I do, here are 10 Disney rides you may want to avoid.

Mad Tea Party - It’s a beautiful day at Magic Kingdom, I ate lunch about an hour before and Leap and Tad promise they won’t spin those darn tea cups too fast. Liars! I must admit, even when they don’t spin very fast, I still get a little sick to my stomach on Mad Tea Party. (Watch the video.)

Space Mountain - Strange enough, outdoor roller coasters pose no problem for me. I think it’s having a point of reference. Space Mountain provides no such thing. Since it’s in complete darkness, I can’t tell when another turn is coming up. (Watch the video.)

Astro Orbiter - I’m not a fan. If the rockets weren’t going so fast, then I could actually enjoy the great views of Tomorrowland the Cinderella Castle. I’ll take Tomorrowland Transit Authority over this one any day. (Watch the video.)

Mission: SPACE at EpcotMission: SPACE - Green or orange version, I’m one of the reasons Disney makes motion-sickness bags available during this ride. I do enjoy the Advanced Training Lab, so I usually wait there while Leap, Tad and Lily go on the ride. (Watch the Green Version video.)

Soarin’ - I reluctantly include Soarin’ in this list because the last few times I’ve been on it, it hasn’t bothered me that much. I make a point not to go right after we eat though. (Watch the video.)

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster - I LOVE the initial acceleration of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, but I don’t like the three inversions. What makes them worse is that I can’t tell when they’re coming up…like Space Mountain, Star Tours at Disney's Hollywood Studiosit’s completely dark. (Watch the video.)

Star Tours - Tad was soooo excited when Star Tours finally re-opened last year that I forced myself to go on it with him. BIG mistake. The 3-D simulation is way more than my stomach can handle.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror - This one doesn’t bother me too much anymore (maybe it’s knowing what to expect or maybe it’s because I really love this ride). However, it’s another story if I go after lunch or supper. (Watch the video.)

DINOSAUR - DINOSAUR is one of the most impressively-themed rides at Disney. It’s also one of the roughest. Not good for bad backs or queasy stomachs. (Watch the video.)

Primeval Whirl at Disney's Animal KingdomPrimeval Whirl - Great family ride, but you never know how those “time machines” are going to spin. When the weight is unevenly distributed, it feels like a repeat of Mad Tea Party.
