Kill, Refurb, Marry: Thrill Rides

At the time of this post going up, I will be on a plane and on my way to Disney World!  Florida weather, here I come!  I’m not ready for the snow we’re getting here.

I’m super excited for Kill, Marry, Refurb this month, because it’s about something that I have a lot of experience with – thrill rides.  My husband first introduced me to roller coasters, and I’ve been hooked on thrills ever since.  Disney has some great ones to offer, so I knew it was going to be hard to pick something to kill!  It was hard to decide whether or not some rides were considered thrill rides, so I used Disney’s official website – they group their rides, and have a heading called “thrill rides.”  So if it came up there, I considered it a thrill ride.

I desperately wanted to kill Stitch’s Great Escape, but alas, it is not considered a thrill ride.  So Kali River Rapids bit the dust instead.  I haven’t been on it in ages.  I suppose if it’s super, super hot out it’s nice to get completely soaked, but I’m not a huge fan of being wet from head to toe.  It makes the next hour or so uncomfortable, especially if you’re wearing sneakers and socks.  I don’t remember much about the themeing (I guess I was too preoccupied with the waterfalls and waves), so I don’t think I was too impressed by it. Plus, this is a rather “typical” sort of ride that you find at all sorts of theme parks.  I think Disney could do a more creative water ride here.
