at Disney-MGM Studios

Wow. I've been on drop rides before, but nothing compares to this. When I heard that it was only a 13-story drop (which compared to Drop Zone in Paramount's Wonderland, a 25-story drop, is not much), I didn't think it would be all that scary. I also didn't think it would be what it was actually like. I thought it would be a simple go up and drop ride. So much for that idea. When you're in the dark, 13 stories seems so much worse than it actually is. The hotel lobby is an excellent queue, and the story line is amazing. The ghost effects are incredible, it's like going through an intense Haunted Mansion. Not good for those who hate having their "stomachs in their mouths". Ride all the service elevators to get different views of the park.
