🙄 You know what they say about assuming?

I've been on Hulk, not on Mako or Montu. Been on all the rollercoasters in Alton Towers and Thorpe Park. Coasters are great fun, but FOP was something else, completely different and for me 10 times more joyful and exhilarating than any coaster.

Why would you assume that? .

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

Best ride ever is always going to be subjective. Its 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.

But if you are a thrill seeker then its pretty but boring.
Its more like a boat through a themed village. Theres 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 cant 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 hasnt 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 dont get why people who like fop wouldnt 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 dont and I would have assumed from what people say that fop is exciting.
But thats 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. Its 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 Navi River is a beautiful ride. l wouldnt 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.
