Jaws



Backdraft: - This is more a show than a ride and suffered a little from a lot of explanations and pre-show movies that were in Japanese. Still, the eventual flame show in a chemical factory was a masterpiece of creating a real repeatable fire in a very controlled environment.

Amusement Parks Worldwide – 8 Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is the third of the four theme parks built at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida on May 1, 1989. The total area it covers is 135 acres and every year it hosts approximately 10.11 million guests, making it the fifth most visited amusement park in United States and eighth most visited in the world. The park is currently represented by “The Sorcerer’s Hat”, a stylized version of magical hat from Fantasia. It replaced the Earful Tower as the park’s icon in 2001 and will continue to serve that role until its removal in 2015.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios doesn’t have a ton of attractions, but it has some great ones. If you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World, it’s a great place to start when making a rough roadmap for what you want to do during your visit. Here is the list of all the major attractions:

Toy Story Mania: - It is a 3D screen based shooter game with Toy story character. Since it opened, this has become one of the most heavily-hyped attractions at Walt Disney World, drawing ridiculous standby wait times. It is the only ride in the park geared towards kids, which meant that regardless of quality, its line would be fairly long. It is a fun game based attraction and it look like a Wii game. The line has some fun props, but the ride itself is entirely screen based. It is superficial and of long duration but guests really enjoys it a lot.

Toy-Story-Mania



Beauty and the Beast: Live on Stage: - It is a Broadway style musical at the 1,500 seat theater of the Stars on Sunset Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It is based on the popular animated film Beauty and the Beast including many of the original songs and characters. While most of the soundtrack is prerecorded, the actors playing Belle and Gaston speak and sing live. Two versions of the show have been presented since opening day.

Beauty-and-the-Beast



Twilight Zone Tower of Terror: - A free fall thrill ride set in the Twilight Zone with an elaborate lead-in and excellent story. This is the best Walt Disney World attraction to open in the last 20 years. We often hear from guests who don’t ride this because they don’t like thrills, but that’s a mistake. Yes, it’s technically a thrill ride, but it’s so much more.

Twilight-Zone-Tower-of-Terror



MuppetVision 3D:- 3D show featuring the Muppets. If you have a sense of humor you will love it. The pre-show is actually the highlight of MuppetVision and it can fairly be described as sidesplitting. To watch the whole show make sure you arrive early enough. The main 3D show is good and uses the typical 3D schemes and characters. The sharp script in the pre-show is incredibly nice.

MuppetVision-3D



Star Tours—The Adventures Continue: - It is a 3D motion simulator montage ride through various locations in the Star Wars universe. Star Tours is a motion simulator attraction. The ride is based on the successful Star War film series created by George Lucas. At its debut at Disneyland in 1987 it was the first Disney attraction based on a non-Disney film.

Star-ToursThe-Adventures-Continue



Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular: - A stunt show themed to Indiana Jones. Despite its age, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular still works. It features a variety of different stunt styles, offers humor, and engaging narrative scenes that just work. As far as action-oriented shows at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this is by far the best.

Indiana-Jones-Epic-Stunt-Spectacular



Jedi Training Academy: - Small scale stage show giving kids the opportunity to become Jedi. This is an attraction that kids will absolutely love if they’re into Star Wars and are extroverted. It’s not quite as much fun for the audience, but it’s still decent. Originally somewhat of a temporary show, Jedi Training Academy could be so much more than it is which is why it loses some points.

Jedi-Training-Academy



Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster Starring Aerosmith: - Intense roller coaster with a loop, featuring Aerosmith. The pre-show and queue help make it more of a fully fleshed out experience, but Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster is basically an unthemed rollercoaster in the dark. It’s fun, but it’s not 90-minute-wait fun. It’s a thrill for the sake of thrills attraction.

These are the major attractions that you must try when you are in the park. Here is the list of other attractions that you can also try. But these rides not considered in major attractions:
