Hi all, I'm just a few months away from a trip to Tokyo Disney Resort!
One of my friends is not the biggest fan of roller coasters. He really likes Big Thunder Mountain, but hates Space Mountain (mostly because it's in the dark) and Expedition Everest (mostly the backwards part).
What is the intensity of rides at DisneySea? Which are the most intense? I think he'd be most hesitant about Journey to the Center of the Earth and Raging Spirits. I understand we could watch videos online, but we don't want to spoil the surprise of the theme, story,etc.
For Journey to the Center of the Earth, how does it compare to other Disney rides in the states? How dark is it inside? How big are the drops? (Comparable to Splash Mountain? More or less?) Are the drops straight (Splash Mountain) or more curved/corkscrewed? (He's fine with the curves, but not the straight.) Are the big drops more at the beginning, end, or throughout? I'm pretty sure I'm going to convince/force him to go on this ride , but I think he'll do better if he knows more what to expect.
I have similar questions regarding Raging Spirits. Also, I understand it's similar to the Indiana Jones ride in Paris, but how similar is it? Near identical, or just similar design, etc.?
Are there other "intense" rides at DisneySea you think he might chicken out?
