Enjoy The Best Thrill Rides, Without Motion Sickness
While I love experiencing all of the best thrill rides at Walt Disney World, I admit that I am prone to severe motion sickness. And if you’ve ever been as green around the gills as I have been, then you know that one moment can ruin your entire vacation. Don’t let your motion sickness get in the way of your love of thrill rides and Disney memories.
That’s why I always pack Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals when we travel. Dramamine® has always been my #1 over-the-counter brand (and America’s too!) to help me treat and prevent my severe motion sickness. And this summer, I have Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals packed for all of our summer adventures. One dose contains the full clinically-tested ginger dosage for the prevention and treatment of motion sickness. Since it’s made from natural ginger, Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals is safe to use every day – even when on the most thrilling rides. I just take a dose 30 minutes before I jump onto a ride so I can enjoy all the best Walt Disney World thrill rides – with no motion sickness!
Big Thunder Mountain
Because we all “DUCK” when we go under the dinosaur bones. This rickety G-force induced train ride is classic Walt Disney World thrills – and has to be a part of this list. HAS to.
And then you take Thunder Mountain and place it in complete darkness. Terrifyingly fun. The twists, turns, and drops become that much more exhilarating when you can’t see them coming. At all.
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
Heigh ho! Heigh ho! It’s off on a thrilling adventure we go! One of the newest thrill rides at Walt Disney World; the long lines prove that this unique coaster is worth waiting for. What makes Seven Dwarfs Mine Train so thrillingly fun? The extra “X” factor with swinging side-to-side bucket seats!

Why did Tea Cups make this list? Because this thrill ride hides behind a mask of childhood innocence. You think it’s going to be a tame ride, right? I mean look at all of the kids that are screaming with delight! But then the wheel starts turning faster and faster and all of a sudden it hits you…complete heart pounding spinning disorientation.
If you’re about as excited as I am for Star Wars land, then this Star Wars inspired thrill ride is a MUST! Star Tours has changed a bunch over the years, but the results are always the same. A thrilling chase through space in this high speed 3D simulation ride.
This popular Epcot attraction takes to the skies! While seemingly tame as you glide along some of the best travel destinations in the world, the 40-foot ride off of the ground and 80-foot curved dome screen definitely adds to the thrill factor of this ride for a full sensory experience!
A thrilling water ride? Yes, please! When Florida temperatures rise, Splash Mountain keeps thrill seekers cool with a dropping good time! Plunge over 52 feet in this unique Disney log flume ride.
Terrifying heights, a Yeti and a thrilling roller coaster ride backwards – this is Expedition Everest. Animal Kingdom would not be the same without this one-of-a-kind coaster experience – and some of the best views of this Walt Disney World park!
Buckle up thrill seekers! Conquer tight turns, steep hills and over 60 mph top speeds in this thrilling car ride! Test Track at Epcot is definitely one of our family thrill ride favorites, and also happens to be the fastest thrill ride at Walt Disney World. Beep beep!
Tower of Terror
Going down? And down…and down? My stomach is already in my throat thinking about the Tower of Terror ride at Hollywood Studios. This heart dropping elevator ride lowers guests at thrilling speeds – at unpredictable times.
Rock n’ Roller Coaster
Rock n’ roll will never be the same again. Go from 0 to 57 mph in 2.8 seconds in this Aerosmith inspired roller coaster. Featuring corkscrews and upside down loops, it is one of the most accelerating thrills at Disney World.
Thrill seekers will want to go “ORANGE” for this centrifugal motion simulator thrill ride. Board your spacecraft and complete a mission to Mars as you experience liftoff and simulate space G-forces.
With lots of family adventures planned this summer, I won’t let my motion sickness get in the way. Grab your Dramamine® coupon and prevent motion sickness all travel season long. Be sure to follow Dramamine® on Twitter @dramamine, Facebook @dramamineescape, and Instagram @dramaminebrand.

My favorite is Space Mountain. There’s just no other ride like it anywhere.
My favorite is the tea cups. That’s about as much thrill as I can handle and I have memories of it from a childhood trip to Disney World.
