    No, its pretty mild, i dont think it gets over 30 mph at any time and like you said there arent any really big drops. If you've ever been on space mountain then you'll definitely be able to handle BTMRR.

    I'm not a roller coaster person at all, and I love BTMRR! It has 3 lifts and a bunch of curves. I really enjoy it. Ask for the last car if you want the best and fastest ride ....

    I took my poor broken ankled sister and 7 year old niece on it last time. I of course told them it was very mild. Which it is, don't get me wrong. My sister yelled at me the entire time! Granted, it is a very shaky coaster. When my niece got off she was very red faced and her mom was laughing at her, and she was a little mad at my description of "mild". So, by the time we got home my niece was proclaiming that she rode her first roller coaster and that it was her favorite ride!

    Mildest ride - near the front.

    Wildest ride - the last row.

    Enjoy!

    Yeah, it is pretty mild, but, it is my favorite ride ever at Disney. I hate drops (even though I've done splash mountain...) and in the back, it gives you a little flip kinda thing in your stomach. But, it's soo much fun! The front seems to go really slow, and it's nothing. The back whips you around a little bit.

    My friend and I went on it on E-Ride night...they said we could stay in our row so long as noone was waiting to get in that row. After that, we sat in the same row, or switched to another row and rode it over 10 times. By the last time, we could close our eyes and predict what would happen. Even when we rode it, and the 'thrill' aspect was gone, it was still so much fun!!!

    Hope you enjoy the ride!
