Doctor Doom's Fearfall reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Doctor Doom's Fearfall, a drop ride in Marvel Super Hero Island at Universal's Islands of Adventure. (The minimum height to ride is 52 inches.)
Written by Robert Niles
A rather standard up-and-down launch-and-drop ride. There's not much story or theming here, but the views of the park are superb -- assuming you are brave enough to keep your eyes open at the top of the 199-foot tower, where you will drop 150 feet.
Great ride with some of the best views of the park. . .if you can stop screaming and pay attention. - Kelly Clemens
WOAHHH THIS RIDE IS SHORT! It's thrilling, but short. Not worth waiting more than 25 minutes for. 7/10. - Quentin Scruggs
I like it but I think there should be more to it 8/10 - Owen Scott
The queue theming is pretty great despite the cartoony-ness. But the ride itself is lackluster and short, vertically and time wise. Even tower rides at some Six Flags parks seem to have a better launch. - Ringmaster A
if only this ride was longer!!! I love the anticipation of not knowing when it's going to launch, but I do wish it did a few more free falls! - Michelle Morgan
Line is great (express pass or stand by) and first launch is AWESOME! View is great and drop is nice and slow. Must ride! 7.5/10 - Jaiden Cohen
I usually always skip this one but it offers a fun first launch and a great queue! The rest is blah. However, like I said, the theming and set up for the attraction is really great. I love the whole "Doom Alley" side street that it is located on. It's very daunting and creepy. - Bryce McGibeny
While it is not a bad ride, it is definitely disappointing. The queue, while a little substandard, gets you pumped up and a little terrified about the ride. The first launch off is INTENSE, but then the ride chickens out on itself and transforms into a very slow, gentle drop zone. The ride is worth doing for the intitial launch and the beautiful view you get of the park. If it is a really crowded day, skip it and come back later if there is time. This is not a must-do attraction. 7 out of 10. - Joshua Bixler
