    My Grandson wants to ride a coaster that goes backward and I can only come up with Everest, is there any other coaster in Walt Disney World that goes forward and Backward?

    Hi, Darlene!

    Oh, boy! It sounds like you have a thrill seeker in your family! The only coaster that goes backwards in Walt Disney World is Expedition Everest in Disney's Animal Kingdom. While this is the only coaster that takes guests both forwards and backwards, there are plenty of other thrill rides for your grandson:

    -Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom
    -Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith in Disney's Hollywood Studios
    -Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Magic Kingdom
    -Primeval Whirl in Disney's Animal Kingdom
    -Avatar Flight of Passage in Disney's Animal Kingdom (not a coaster, but quite a thrill!)
    -Tower of Terror in Disney's Hollywood Studios (again, not a coaster, but WOW!)

    I think your grandson will be quite pleased with the fun attractions in the Walt Disney World theme parks. And for those of us who prefer something a bit tamer, the whole family can enjoy attractions such as the Haunted Mansion or the TTA PeopleMover!

    Make sure you book your FastPass+ selections so your family can zip through the lines and get to the next exciting attraction.

    Wishing you and your grandson a magical visit to Walt Disney World!
