Disneyland Paris: Holiday Deals and Wild Rides

May 22, 2011   Filed under Travel

Families and thrill-seekers alike will love holiday deals to the European incarnation of Disneyland Paris, thanks to the diversity of the attractions on offer. You’ll also find themed rooms, restaurants and breakfast time meet and greets with Disney characters at all of the Disney hotels.

Disney’s take on the Wild West comes in the form of Big Thunder Mountain, a runaway mine train themed rollercoaster in Frontierland, which is one of the main attractions in Disneyland. Would-be cowboys and cowgirls can also spend some time practicing their shooting in rustlers round up shooting gallery. Be the first in and last out of the park, by staying in Disney hotels and avoided the long queues for all the best rides.

Adventureland is next door to Frontierland and has elaborately designed sets depicting parts of Africa and Asia during a later period of exploration. The themes continue on the rides including the main rollercoaster ride, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril, which offers views across Eurodisney Paris for anyone composed enough to have a look. The ride itself is medium on the thrill scale but fun none the less.

Space Mountain Mission Two is the more thrilling version of its predecessor, Space Mountain. The ride is the main attraction in Discoveryland, the future themed fantasyland common to Disney resorts worldwide. There is no slow anticipation as riders are boosted to 50mph on the way to the first hill, where the fun really begins. Camel backs, corkscrews and head spinning inversions then follow before the ride comes to an end.

Thrill-seekers who like to do it big will love the Rock and Roller Coaster by Aerosmith, which is arguably the best ride in Disneyland Paris. Unless visitors have booked cheap holiday deals to the resort that include entry to both theme parks, you’ll have to buy separate tickets, as it is in the adjacent Walt Disney Studios Park.
