Magic Kingdom Best Rides & Attractions For Teenagers

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 families with small children.

There are rollercoasters and thrill rides and even though teens aren't that nostalgic, there's something to spark those great memories.

The Mountains

These are Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, and Splash Mountain. Each offers its own unique take on the thrill ride without taking it too far. Space Mountain gives you the thrill of the dark ride. Thunder Mountain has the run-away train. And Splash Mountain has that deep fall into the water.

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. It boasts animatronic animals, an old miner, genuine antique mining equipment, and a flash flood.

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

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 is amplified in the dark.

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

This is the newest coaster addition to the Magic Kingdom. You get on a mine train and take off. Like all Disney rides, it's fast, but not scary. It's just enough to make it enjoyable.

Tron Coaster

This may be the best ride in the Magic Kingdom, but...it's not open yet. It's scheduled to open in the Spring of 2023. The exact same ride is currently open in Shanghai Disneyland, so you can see the video on YouTube to know what you're in for. When it does open, it will easily be the most popular ride in the park.

Tomorrowland Speedway

Do you have a teen who's on the verge of getting their driver's license? Here's your chance to practice without worrying about crashing. You're on a controlled track and get the thrill of the ride without the danger of being on a real road.

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 intends to preserve his treasure.

You just have to keep an eye out for him. For fans of the movie, this is a must.

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!

This is a slow boat ride, but Disney has incorporated Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow into the ride.

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.
