Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey


1. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey   Universal Islands of Adventure Orlando
www.universalorlando.com

This ride has it all ghosts, giant spiders, scary animations, all combined in an amazing ride that whips you around and makes you feel like you are really flying on a broomstick with Harry Potter himself!
 

Revenge of the Mummy Ride

2. Revenge of the Mummy Ride   Universal Studios, Orlando, FL
www.UniversalOrlando.com

This roller coaster combines cool twists and turns with massive over the top sets, pyrotechnic FX and mummy animations. What more can you ask for?

 

3. Towers of Terror   Disney Land, Los Angeles, CA
www.disney.com

As huge Disney fans, we believe not much can top Towers of Terror?  The façade alone is awesome. Plus, there’s an amazing haunted pre-show, amazing sets, costumed ride operators acting their parts, and let’s not forget ghosts and a falling elevator.
 

4. X-2   Six Flags Magic Mountain LA, California
www.sixflags.com

I doubt there is a scarier roller coaster in the world than X-2 it simply takes the cake!   Many won’t ride it because it’s just too scary.  It’s that intense!
 

5. Indiana Jones Ride   Disney Land LA, CA
www.disney.com

Take your favorite archeologist and mix that with an ancient tomb filled with spirits, snakes, traps and pyro FX, and you have one scary, action packed ride!
 

6. The Voyage Roller Coaster   Holiday World, Santa Claus, Indiana
www.holidayworld.com

This is a wooden roller coaster that I truly believe… if it were 10 feet longer it would kill you!  This thrill coaster is without competition in a league of its own, because nothing prepares you for this screaming ride! 
 

7. Dark Castle   Williamsburg Busch Gardens
www.buschgardens.com

Mix a ride with illusions, special FX and a haunted theme and you’ve made our list of the scariest rides in America!
 

8. Mystery Mine   Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, TN Tennessee
www.dollywood.com

Nothing can top mixing coaster experience with a haunted house and special FX.  This ride has it all to make you scream!

 
9. Ghostwood Estates   Kennywood Amusement Park, Pittsburgh, PA
www.kennywood.com

In a seemingly quiet town of West Mifflin PA, in a seemingly quiet part of Kennywood Park, ghosts, ghouls, and monsters lurk around every corner.  The cool part about this ride is you get to shoot back at these ghosts.  This is one hauntingly good ride! 

10. Disney’s Haunted Mansion   Los Angeles CA
www.disney.com

We realize this quirky, fun ride isn’t much for making you scream, but how can it not land on a list for scary rides.  After all, it’s Disney’s Haunted Mansion!  This ride started and kicked off a wave of scary rides, it is the grand daddy of all haunted rides in the WORLD.
