A 2019 season update, which saw some new rides with Hagrid's, and the roller coasters at both Florida Fun Spots. But will Galaxy Spin make my list of top 10 most fun rides? New entries in italics.

1. Taron
2. Mako
3. Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure
4. The Swarm
5. Black Mamba
6. Nemesis
7. Big Thunder Mountain (DLP)
8. Stealth
9. Kraken
10. Expedition Everest

Hagrids' arrives at a close number 3. I had a massive grin all the way around that thing, not as big as I did on Taron, and not as thrilling fun as Mako for me. But a fantastic ride.

Oblivion has gone bye byes from its former 7th position for me. The sheer amount of faff and delay on that ride in 2019 just made it far less fun, and at times almost a bit pointless sadly.

Mine Blower at Fun Spot Kissimmee came close to making the list, but didn't quite get there. A fun ride, but let down for me by the overall park atmosphere.

And now my worst rides in Orlando that you should never bother with list:

1. Fast and Furious - Supercharged

That is all.

1. Helix
2. Balder
3. Kumali (I know, weird)
4. Space Mountain
5. Oblivion
6. Icon
7. Swarm
8. Stealth
9. Nemesis
10. Lisbergbanan

Yes I know its weird that Kumali is third, but that drop is just awesome fun and I genuinely really enjoyed it.

1 - Mako (SeaWorld Orlando)
2 - Cheetah Hunt (Busch Gardens Tampa)
3 - Expedition Everest (Animal Kingdom)
4 - Red Force (Ferrari Land)
5 - The Smiler (Alton Towers)
6 - Shambhala (PortAventura Park)
7 - Montu (Busch Gardens Tampa)
8 - Dragons (Universal’s Islands of Adventure)
9 - Manta (SeaWorld Orlando)
10 - Furius Baco (PortAventura Park)

Really don’t get the hype(r) surrounding Shambhala, by all accounts it was a more drawn out slower feeling Mako and I think it gets a lot of unnecessary praise...
