I donít understand your point? I donít like rollercoasters so FoP is a better ride in my opinion than any rollercoaster. Iíve been on loads of coasters over the years and FoP wins hands down.

ďBest ride everĒ is always going to be subjective. Itís irrelevant whether people who like FoP also like Hulk.

I am much more of a traditional roller-coaster type of person. I feel very ill when I do the 3D rides so I have to take tablets. I didn't feel bad at all after FoP and the whole experience for me was just incredible.

Itís more like a boat through a themed village. Thereís really not much to it and for me not something I would do again. Nor would I want to wait for something like that.

I canít wait for fop. I am hoping my 5 year old will enjoy it too. She loved big coasters like everest.
Star Wars is not my cup of tea and the ride hasnít had the greatest reviews but as both will be open when we go then we will be going to it. Just cos I like to have done all the rides at least once, I think both kids will be able to ride and they might enjoy it more than us too.

Also donít get why people who like fop wouldnít do hulk etc.
It always seems to me that there are the coaster/adrenaline junkie type and then the slow theme type.
You either like exiting rides or you donít and I would have assumed from what people say that fop is exciting.
But thatís just a very narrow black and white kinda guess on people. There my be loads that also fit into lots of different categories.
Suppose you never really know. Itís all personal and at least at Disney there really is something for everyone

I love FoP, I also enjoy coasters such as hulk and I think that Naívi River is a beautiful ride. l wouldnít use my prebookable Tier 1 fastpass on it but we headed there during EMH and picked up several additional FP for it on the day on the last trip.

Get yourself on Mako the next time your there and let me know if you still feel the same way?

I generally believe FOP is one of the most overrated ride systems I have ever been on and if that ride was built without Pandora and the emotional attachment that comes with it due to how well the land is done then it would be another Soarin.

For me that is why Tower of Terror is the best ride Disney have ever built. You could stick that beast in any theme park around the world as a standalone attraction and it would just work.

That's us as well. Be it high adrenaline or a slow boat type ride they are all entertaining.

We have a very small list of things we don't do or only do rarely but that's just us.

I suspect every Member on here if given a list of 20 attractions would rate them in a different fashion. Maybe we need a Poll!

Itís not overrated, you just donít rate it. Itís not the same thing. Itís ok to not like something that everyone else likes but it doesnít mean itís overrated. And emotional attachment to Pandora? Are you joking? Who has an emotional attachment to Avatar? Not me certainly. It was an ok film but if I have any emotional attachment itís to Star Wars and Iíd take FoP over SR every time. FoP is nothing like Soariní.

You took the words out of my mouth!

Mako looks awesome but my schedule and budget for next year only allows for Disney and, for the first time since 2014, Universal parks. I wish I could add Sea World and try Mako but it's not gonna happen, unfortunately.

Well said Lisa.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, FOP is one of the harder to get FPs and has the longest queues because people rate it. Obviously not everybody will like it.

I have no emotional attachment to Pandora whatsoever, I do however really like Star Wars as does DH, but we would both pick FOP over Smugglers Run any day of the week, because it is a better ride.

And we both dislike Soarin. Flight of passage is not even remotely like Soarin. I donít have a line of dangling feet in front of me on FOP for a start.
