Best Non-Disney Ride You've Ridden

What is the best non-Disney ride you've ridden:

1.) In Orlando?
2.) Anywhere?

Good question. It'll be interesting to see what others come up with

1.) Probably Men in Black
2.) The swan boats in Boston (does that count?). We love those.

1) NA - Haven't ridden any non-Disney rides in Orlando yet.
2) Thunderhead at Dollywood. I have a lot of favorites, but that one is tops.

I really liked the Kraken at SeaWorld and also a ride called WildFire at Silver Dollar City.

I thought I was going to like Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but I wasn't crazy about it.

I love the newest roller coaster at Dollywood, Wild Eagle.
Also, I love Kraken & Manta at Seaworld.
And prettymuch all of the roller coasters at Busch Gardens.

Spiderman at IoA, Disney should have a ride like this!
The Mummy at Universal, great story telling.

The Simsons at Universal, funniest ride ever.

Cedar Point's Top Thrill Dragster, even though I got bugs in my teeth while riding it, I'd have to say this is the most impressive thrill ride I have ever done.

In Orlando: Disaster at Universal Studios. The only Universal ride (that I could handle due to motion sickness) that was MORE fun than the Disney equivalent.

Outside Orlando: Reese's Extreme Cup Challenge at Hersheypark. It's like a budget version of Buzz Lightyear at MK. I got high score once, back when the ride was new and they posted scores. I'm also a big fan of Hersheypark's Wild Mouse, the only roller coaster that doesn't make me queasy.

In Orlando - The harry potter ride

outside of Disney - Raging Bull at Six Flags Great America outside of Chicago. That coaster is great- I once rode it 5 times in a row without getting off the ride. (right before close on a really rainy day)

Thunderbolt at Kennywood Park, Pittsburgh. Love the old wooden coasters. My other favorite there was the Steel Phantom but it's been changed to Phantom's Revenge. I haven't ridden it since it changed.

Ooh! Ooh! I remember Opryland! Went there as a kid. Didn't know about Opryland 2.0, so thanks for the heads up! Will have to do some research on that!

Definitely the Dueling Dragons ride at Islands of Adventure! I haven't been on it since it was in it's original form back before Harry Potter World, but I heard that they no longer set them off at the same time which was the best part of the ride Sad( Sad( Sad(

I like The Manta at SeaWorld - it's the one where you hang from your back. I also like Harry Potter's Forbidden Journey in IoA!
