Magic Kingdom Best Rides & Attractions For Teenagers

Updated: 08 Jun 2013 01:26:26 AM

When visiting the Magic Kingdom with your teenagers, unless it is for nostalgia’s sake, skip the crowds in Fantasyland and get the most out of your day in Tomorrowland, Adventureland, Liberty Square and Frontierland.

These sections of the park hold the most thrills and you can also find great places to eat and rest away from the families with small children.

Splash Mountain

This entertaining log ride, based on Song of The South, takes its riders on a wild chase after Brer Rabbit ending in a 5-½-story drop into the wet briar patch.

The animatronic characters are fun to see – and the shadow of Brer Rabbit keeps jumping out of reach.

The ride is very popular, so come early or make use of a Fastpass.

 Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

The roller coaster depiction of the gold rush is fast – and funny!

The scenery, if you can see it whizzing by, is based on Arizona’s Monument Valley, and boasts animatronic animals and an old miner, genuine antique mining equipment, and a flash flood.

The rickety mining carts make for a bumpy, fast ride.

Haunted Mansion

The wry humor built into this attraction is lost on small children, but teens will find it surprisingly funny.

On the way into the house, the interactive graveyard makes the wait bearable – don’t forget to read the headstones of the dearly departed.

The ride itself is slow moving, all the better to take in the special effects.

 Pirates of the Caribbean

This classic Disney ride has been updated with a few new characters that make it appeal to the teenage audience.

Jack Sparrow has joined the motley crew of mangy pirates, and he is intent upon preserving his treasure.

The boat ride takes you past scenes from a port town, and into the action as a pirate.

Yo ho! Yo ho!

A pirate’s life for me!

Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin

Test your aim with this interactive ride based on Toy Story.

Help Buzz and the gang defeat Zurg by using the laser gun in your vehicle to hit targets and save the universe.

This ride puts two people in control – one of the vehicle, and the other of the laser.

 Space Mountain

Inside this white gleaming landmark of the Magic Kingdom resides a thrilling roller coaster.

The ride hurtles you through the almost pitch black amidst the stars.

Although it isn’t the fastest ride in the parks, the sensation of the drops and turns are amplified in the dark.

Disney Tickets

Magic Kingdom now cost $102 for any person age 10 or older.

Children age 3 to 9 years old pay slightly less.
