Dr Doom’s Fearfall At Universal Orlando

Dr Doom’s Fearfall at Islands of Adventures Orlando Florida is a stomach in mouth inducing ride.

You know those jumping bean rides for kids that give you a funny feeling in your belly? Well imagine one of those but 150 feet in the air! The initial launch at the beginning of the ride uses more thrust than a 747 jet engine and accelerates faster than the space shuttle. Doctor Doom’s Fearfall has two towers that each stand 200 feet tall.

Height to ride – 52″

Top Speed – Its a drop ride so pretty hard to estimate.

Height reached – 150 feet

Attraction Tickets Review – A heart stopping scream-a-thon. Loved the suspense just before take off. Shame it doesn’t last longer.
