    MK: Honestly, I never liked HM. I'm not saying it needs to go, but it's just not my thing. Purely because Disney sure knows how to scare the crud out of me when they want to.
    I like Stitch. Call me crazy. Lord knows I am.
    EPCOT: I absolutely love M:S! What's with all the bashing it? It is awesome! Really, it's a lot of fun. Maelstrom is also a fine ride that I don't think is that bad, even if I'm not particularly fond of it. Personally, I can't think of any rides in EPCOT that I'd rather be without.
    MGM: I HATE RRC. I'd strongly oppose Disney getting rid of it, but that can't stop me from refusing to go on it ever again. But I haven't been on enough rides there to say what I think is overrated and should go.
    AK: Primeval Whirl! I get sick every time I go on it. I've tried again and again to like this ride, but for the life of me cannot do it. Cheap decorations just add to the reasons I want to see it go. Dinosaur is much better than that piece of crud. (And I don't mind the hour-long wait, thank you very much.)

    M:S is a great idea (space), but I just don't care for the execution. It's not really a mass appeal attraction, IMO. It's never really crowded looking.

    I've never ridden RRC and doubt I ever will, can't believe I forgot that one. Not my cup of tea.

    Well, let me tell you this: it is REALLY fast. And apparently there's music playing really loudly throughout it too, but no one riding with me was able to hear it over the screaming. I think there's a video of it on youtube somewhere.

    Mission space is with out doubt the most overrated ride along with Soarin. Yea Soarin is great but how many times can you ride it and not be bored with the same scenery. Thinking they should change it up a bit

    The Haunted Mansion seriously scares you? I mean that as an honest question. As in, you actually find it frightening?

    Re: Most overrated attractions

    Well, last time I went on it (at age nine) I stuck my fingers in my ears and went "Lalalalalalalala I'm not here right now..." So yes, I do actually find it frightening. I'm not really one for being freaked out. I don't handle it well.

    Space Mountain is overrated in my opinion.

    Nothing against Soarin', it's nice, but it's sad that it seems to be the most hyped attraction at EPCOT these days.

    Seeing all of these comments about Mission: SPACE perhaps it isn't overrated

    I can't give my opinion about M:S. I haven't done it. I'm a little claustrophobic.

    I think Soarin' is WAY overrated. Personally, I think any wait over 10 minutes is not worth it.

    Re: Most overrated attractions

    I enjoy Soar'n but I do agree, it isn't all that. Sadly, there is so little to do in Future World, it does make everyone want to ride it, 'cause it is good. It just isn't out of this world wait 2 hours. Future world is just clogged up 'cause there is little to do causing its own congestion.

    Epcot is turning into its own abandoned 1/2 park.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    It truly is, Gabe. I only go there for WS now or special events. The Siemens sponsored post-queue to SSE is boring or doesn't work most of the time.

    Re: Most overrated attractions

    There is so much gone now and abandoned that Epcot's Future World is hit a few and move on. That is what makes Soar'n so popular along with the ever breaking down Test Track.

    I love the WS at night, and Epcot was always my favorite park. Even that Disney has turned the WS to be all about drinking and eating. No updates to attractions, new countries or touristy movies.

    Re: Most overrated attractions

    The sum of the parts is no longer greater than the whole. And that goes for the entire park. AK is my favorite park now and it's been that way since it opened in '98. It's just a great place to walk around. You're completely lost in the jungle the created.
