What are your favorite rides in both parks and why?
Mine are as follows:
I love the country vibe of the ride and Critter Country in general and the top of the ride (before the final splash) looks so high in TDR so you'll get an amazing view. I always get excited at those last few seconds before the final splash. A kind of "Why did I get on this ride? Aaahhh!" feel.
Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull
It's amazing how they made the jeep really feel like an old jeep and the ride REALLY makes you feel like you're in the movie. Special mention has to go the whole temple and waiting line that has a really haunting vibe going in. The only downside is that you usually have to wait a long time to get in.
