Another classic Disney ride! Definitely a must do. This is one that is good to do in the daylight so you can see all the decoration, but is even more fun when the sun has set.

The ride itself still is great. I enjoyed it very much. Is also convenient to family members who doesn't like rough rides. Great show - but it shows also that Disney sometimes looses the sight on the one important thing: Experience. Only a little thing...More

A good fun ride suited for all ages. It doesn't go upside down and only some small to medium sized drops and a few sharp turns. We used fast passes for this ride, the average que time was about 40mins.

This is a Disney classic ride. You have to do it at least once. Kids and adults will love it. Wait times can be long

If like us, you are a bit scared of the crazy loop the loops and death drops, this is a great compromise. Fast, swerving, bumps and falls, perfect for the beginner. We loved it and it was a great ride

One of our favorite rides in the Magic Kingdom. Rollercoaster through an old mine, lots of twists and turns. Love the old clicks and clacks of the tracks. We like to sit near the back of the car. Enjoy!!

It really depends on the child... I've seen 4/5 year olds love it and some 8/9 year olds terrified. Compared to the Barnstormer, it's a massive, rougher ride, but the scenery is beautiful lol. Especially at dusk!
