    What Attractions are Over/Under Rated at DLR???

    Now I know this thread has been done before (I did search), but it seems that they were derailed or slightly off topic.

    My wife and I are going 9/29 and we are not as familiar with DCA as we are with DL. Also, when we go it is usually with our 4-year-old. So I would like to know what attractions are overrated or underrated at DLR?

    For example...what about Muholland Madness? It is categorized as a "Big Thrill" ride, but I've never seen it nor heard much about it. Underrated or just plain lame? Big Thunder....way underrated in my opinion. Matterhorn, Autopia, Roger Rabbit...overrated.

    What do you think?

    well the line always seems to be long so i would assume its a good ride, but ive heard peter pan is totally overrated, but everyone has their own opinion you know.

    and i agree with the matterhorn and big thunder, underrated.

    Well, I love Buzz. One of the rides DH and I always go on.

    I think Matterhorn is overrated. Slow, jerky, and knee-bruising. Ouch!

    Storybook is underrated. It has its haters, but it really is charming. Especially when monster ducks invade. But, oh! The line is soooo slow.

    IASW, I hate to say, is now overrated. When I was 7, it was the coolest thing next to Strawberry Shortcake, but now..? Well, it hasn't aged well.

    Tom Sawyer Island is underrated. And sadly, neglected by the higher-ups. If only they'd refurb the fort!

    Oh, and Butterfinger Brownies are underrated. Except by me. I prize them as they deserve.

    I for one, love Mulholland Madness (did I spell it right?) and think its underrated.

    First time I ever got on this, I thought I was going to fall over the side. I actually think it could be a bit 'wilder' than California Screamin' in some respects...

    Overrated -

    1. Anything in Toon Town, noteably Gadget's Rollercoaster, Roger Rabbit's CarToon spin, and the Chip and Dale treehouse.

    2. Innoventions.

    3. Autopia.

    4. Buzz Lightyear.

    5. Splash Mountain.

    UNDER-rated:

    1. Jungle Cruise

    2. Pinocchio's Journey;

    3. Storybook Boats;

    4. Rivers of America Attractions (Columbia, Mark Twain, Canoes);

    5. it's a Small World.

    If you want to talk DCA, the Sun Wheel, Animation Studio, Grizzly River Rapids, are all underrated - I'm sorry it took me so long to try each of these.

    Rated just right, meaning everyone agrees you shouldn't miss -
    Indiana Jones, Pirates, Haunted Mansion, and Space Mountain!

    i also agree with this one. ive been to disneyland may many times (well compared to the average person, maybe not so much compare to you guys) and i FINALLY visited tom sawyer island on my last trip and i thought it was great. partially because i had never been there and it was so "new" and cool to me. i highly reccomend it if you havnt been there, its a nice change, all "nature like".
