Rides You Wish You'd Taken Before They Disappeared!

Disneyland: Do you regret not going on certain rides when you had the chance and now find that those rides have been discontinued and are gone for good (especially at Disneyland)? Which rides are they?

After years of going to Disneyland, I noticed that there were certain rides and attractions I had not bothered to go to. Some of those rides are gone for good and now I'm regretting it. (33skidoo)

Frank, I see you just joined yesterday. Welcome to TPI. But before you post, please read over previous discussion topics. There are several recent threads on essentially this same topic. Granted, it's something that happens often on this site, so I'm really not trying to single you out.

Dom,
You need to travel to Japan! The first time I rode Back to the Future, I was blown away! Since then I always compared similar attractions to the better of them all = BTTF.

Bryce,
King Kong 360 is way much better than the original Kong, so you didn't lose any opportunity. It's only a short segment of the studio tour, but the HD images are more thrilling than the AA of Kong.

The only one I can really be upset about these days is King's Islands Son of Beast that is recent due to just not having gotten over there. Plus there are also a few other coasters that where gone/destroyed before I was either tall enough or interested in coasters. There are several rides I wish I could have gotten another few goes on before they disappeared.

Is this where I point out I've ridden all the goodies stated here multiple times? ;)
