Check out my reviews of all animal kingdom rides (A to Z)
AVATAR FLIGHT OF PASSAGE (5/5)
New favorite ride, hands down! This 3D adventure lets you fly on the back of a banshee and soar over the World of Pandora. The visual effects are stunning and breath-taking! The line for this ride can easily reach 2+ hours as its a newer attraction... my advice is get there early (before the park opens) and run to FOP first!
This is a classic Animal Kingdom ride. It takes you back through the croatious time to see Dinos! It's a fast and jerky ride in the dark with lots of flashing lights and a heart pumping storyline! Will you make it back in time before the asteroids hit? Guess you'll have to find out! (PS - Disneyland has the same ride track with an Indiana Jones twist).
EXPEDITION EVEREST (5/5)
Talk about an amazing rollercoaster! This ride will have you climbing high up Everest Mountain only to find out the Yeti tore the tracks! You'll ride backwards in the dark in what feels like upside down loops (don't worry, they're not). Then you'll catch wind as you dive down the mountain in a fast speed!
FESTIVAL OF THE LION KING (5/5)
Get ready to feel all of the emotions in this Broadway-worthy show! Watch as this theatre comes to life with color, song, and dance! The singing is truly incredible and puts you right inside the Lion King Movie.
FINDING NEMO - THE MUSICAL (3/5)
Okay, so I'm bitter and miss the Tarzan show that was here before Finding Nemo so I can't allow myself to love this one as much! However, this is a great show for kids or anyone that likes to sing.
IT'S TOUGH TO BE A BUG! (3/5)
This 3D show is a quick 8 minute presentation by Flick from It's A Bug's Life. You'l see a little bug talent show before Hopper breaks in to ruin the fun! This is a great activity on a hot day because you can relax inside the Tree of Life! It's also fun walking in line for this ride because you get a close up of the amazing detail in the tree.
KALI RIVER RAPIDS (4/5)
This water ride will definitely get you soaked! You'll float along the river in a luscious jungle before turning the corner to see fires from illegal logging! Next thing you know, you're plummeting down the waterfall just waiting to get splashed!
KILIMANJARO SAFARIS (5/5)
It's not every day that you get to see lions, tigers, and wild animals! This safari takes you through the Africa Desert to see all of your favorite furry friends. Be sure to have your camera ready on this one!
NA'VI RIVER JOURNEY (3/5)
This is a new ride within Pandora! It's a relaxing river ride through the rain forest with beautiful music. There isn't a story line or any big drops so it's great for people of all ages. The scenery is stunning but if you're in a time crunch, you can skip it in my opinion.
PRIMEVAL WHIRL (2/5)
Get ready to be banged and bumped around on this carnival-like ride!
RIVER OF LIGHTS (2/5)
This new nighttime show takes place over the water with high tech light techniques and music. To me, it is a little hard to see the detail of the show so some of it gets lost in translation. The story line is also a little slow and hard to follow. If you're feeling tired after a long day at AK, head home - you're not missing much!
TRICERA TOP SPIN (2/5)
It's like Dumbo, but Dino themed... great for little ones!
UP! A GREAT BIRD ADVENTURE (2/5)
See exotic birds from all around the world in this talent show! The characters from UP help bring the birds out and help you bird watch! During the winter months, they add a twist to the show by incorporating India's holiday celebration of Diwali!
