The ONE Disney’s Hollywood Studios Ride Fans Say They’ll Never Ride Again

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is my favorite park — I can’t get enough!

7 times out of 10, you’ll find me in Hollywood Studios!

It’s partly because of the fantastic rides, but also because I started writing scripts and making my own films when I was 14, so I love the Hollywood feel and tie-ins to tons of different films (I am a little sad I was too young to remember MGM though🥺). However, I totally understand it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and some of those rides can be ROUGH. We asked our readers on Facebook what Hollywood Studios ride they would never go on again, and I gotta say — I hear you!

Star Tours

The number one answer on our post was EASILY Star Tours because of one reason only — motion sickness!

Star Tours

This ride is no joke when it comes to motion sickness. Not only are you staring at a screen, which can be tough for sensitive folks, but you’re also moving up, down, left, and right to pretty serious degrees.

I’ll say this, the ride does a great job at really making you feel you’re on a perilous space journey, but it proves to be too much for a lot of park goers. While I personally don’t struggle with motion sickness, if I’m seated on the end of one of these rows, I do find myself a little wobbly for a few seconds when I walk off! (Pro tip: Try and sit in the center middle as much as possible if you struggle with motion sickness — it’s the most stable!)

Did you know Star Tours recently changed? Check out what’s new!

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

On that same note, motion sickness is very common for guests to experience after a ride on Smuggler’s Run. Again, while I haven’t experienced this myself, one of my travel partners on the trip I recently took proceeded to say (TMI incoming) “yeah that one made me feel like I wanted to vomit” immediately after getting off the ride.

Similar to Star Tours, you’re watching a screen as you travel through the galaxy and get a container of coaxium (or two if you’re really good). However, the difference here is that you may have a 7 year old piloting your ship (or me, my hand eye coordination isn’t great), and it might be an EXTRA bumpy ride. (Or maybe they’re really talented, that does happen!)

Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run

This ride definitely isn’t for the easily-queasy, so steer clear if that’s you. Or if you decide to give it a try anyway, be sure you have some non-drowsy dramamine with you!

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster

Now HERE is why my personal experience comes in, and a lot of our readers agree with me apparently — Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster HURTS!

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster

Listen I know they say you’re supposed to keep your head pressed back towards the seat as hard as you can to avoid it smacking around, and I don’t know about you guys, but my neck isn’t that strong. I don’t know how to strengthen it, but until I do, this ride is a no for me. (Which is a bummer, because that launch is awesome!)

This ride is no joke!

Getting a headache after this ride isn’t fun for anyone, even if you immediately have Advil or Aleve on hand, but if you’re like me and have tons of health-anxiety, my brain starts to make me think it WASN’T the jerky rollercoaster that has me in pain but in fact I’m coming down sick with something, and then BAM anxiety attack. So yeah, I’ll be staying far away from this one even when it’s out of refurbishment.

Tower of Terror

Yet another one I completely can relate to — Tower of Terror isn’t for a lot of people. I’m not afraid of heights (if you are though, this is likely a BIG NO for you), but that stomach drop feeling is, you guessed it, anxiety-inducing.

Is that kinda the point and part of the exhilaration of the ride? For sure, but if you’ve got an overactive nervous system (🙋‍♀️), your body may not understand that it’s a controlled drop and that you’re totally safe, no matter what your brain is saying.

Tower of Terror is indeed terrifying

A lot of our readers shared with us that this ride also makes them feel sick because of that constant up and down motion. There’s also now no way to predict how many times you’ll fall now that it’s truly randomized, so my advice? If you want to ride anyway, take that dramamine or your anxiety medication before!

Toy Story Land is a great fit for families in DHS though!

Well now that we’ve talked about almost half the rides in the park (I wish I was kidding), know that the rest of Hollywood Studios may be much safer for my anxiety-filled or motion sickness prone peeps.
