    No drops on any of those rides. Star Tours is similar.

    Is Goofy’s comparable to Prime Evil Whirl?

    Very similar - but I think Goofy's is less intense because the car you ride in does not swivel. We went on a ride very similar to Prime Evil Whirl at the Calgary Stampede called the Crazy Mouse Coaster and I thought to myself "man that was like Goofy's but even crazier!"

    Well Indy has a small drop at the end but it isn’t much, less than pirates.

    I think I might have posted this. But just to add down here. The drop in pirates is plenty to make my stomach flip no matter how small it might be. Indy doesn’t at all, it feels like driving down a steep driveway.

    Thank you all so much for your help! I just returned from my trip to Disneyland. I loved the Matterhorn (fantasyland side) and Radiator Springs Racers! Didn’t end up doing pirates, but glad I tried these other two.

    so how did you handle the dips on RSR and the G-forces on the curve? And for the Matterhorn....were you just beat up by the time you reached the dips that you didn't even feel the dips?

    I didn’t feel like the dips were too much on Matterhorn, maybe because I was on the fantasyland side or maybe I don’t mind as much when the dip comes while going around a curve. The RSR dips were a little intense for me but not enough to make me skip it. It’s a really well done ride. I’m glad I was able to go on it twice, because I got to go on the paint side and the tire side.
