  • My husband was a bike rider but actually was intimidated on this thing. You aren't strapped in the same way as other rides which adds to the thrill. I rode in the sidecar and loved it!  more »
  • I love these simulators. The 3D experience is mind blowing. For 4.5 minutes you are in another world. You will actually think you are flying, it is that real.  more »
  • The scenery is beautiful, the smells are perfect, the feeling of the beast breathing underneath you, it’s all amazing. Plus, there is not fake story to interfere with the ride. Just lean forward and.....  more »
  • What a great experience. AVoP owns the longest wait time in Disney World, usually from 150-190 minutes, but it can easily crack 200. The introduction is quite long (which is responsible for the high wait time). The ride, a 4D ride, takes you through the world of Pandora where you are riding on a Banshee. You get sprayed with a bit of water, but nothing to worry about in the slightest. Amazing smells, to go along with brilliant sights and sounds, make for an unforgettable experience. This is the must-see attraction in Animal Kingdom, even if you’re not an Avatar fan.
  • What a cool and unique ride experience. You can definitely enjoy this ride without even have seen the movie. Highly recommend prioritizing this for a fast pass though because the wait is always over an hour and I can see why.
  • This got to be one of the best theme park ride that I ever been on. Can possibly rival the Harry Potter at universal. Gigantic screen with flight simulator style ride. However with 3D glass image. Wing, Scent, water effect. Can not believe I was still indoor. The line is kind long... (about 50 mins) which already driving me nuts. But. Must say it was worth it. This is so REAL. If you are afraid of height. Don't do it... I barely fainted.
  • Best ride! It really does feel like riding a banshee in reality, and for when it gets hot out, there are mist cannons that mist out water at one point on the ride. The technology and ride system are in the spotlight, since the seat for the ride is like a motorcycle. Only one word of warning, GET FASTPASSES ASAP because the lines can up to 2 and a half to 3 hours long, and many people will book that ride first.
  • This ride is insanely good, no wonder it's so popular. The whole setting of the Avatar section is incredible. I immensely enjoyed being there, and it's very hard to find a decent 5 minute ride anywhere in theme parks. My hubby says "hands down best ride in WDW he went on!"
