Nearest Creaky Experiences (so far) to Disney Land Paris

As very much everyone is aware, I will (hopefully) be making my first ever trip to a Disney park one month from today, a time even this far off I'm absolutely buzzing for.

However, still being a 'Disney park virgin' for the time being, I though I would conjure up a series of rides, places and attractions ive been on that I believe the closest 'present' experiences I've had to the authentic disney rides I shall be riding, whether the result of this is fairly close or just a complete joke in comparison.

All in all, this list is just a bit of fun at the end of the day.

1/ Big Thunder Mountain- Runaway Mine Train Alton Towers

Plus Inferno's volcano for the theming

2/ It's A SmallWorld- Bubbleworks Chessington

3/ Phantom Manor- Duel Alton Towers

Probably the closest accuracy in the list :P

4/ Pirates Of The Caribbean- Pirate Falls Treasure Quest Legolañd Windsor

Apparently it's not a pirates life for me.

5/ Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast- Laser Raiders Legoland Windsor

6/ Autopia- Grand Prix Blackpool

Mark9 will appreciate this one ;)

7/ Pinoccio's Daring Journey- Pinoccio Tivoli World

Slightly more accurate

8/ Snow Whte's Scary Adventures- Alice In Wonderland Blackpool

Only one I could think of places I've visited

9/ Peter Pan's Flight- Fireball Adventure Island Southend

Yes, very accurate. Really, I couldn't think of anything in terms of suspended dark rides I've done, so this had to do.

10/ Indiana Jones Le Temple De Peril- Turbo Brighton Pier

Ok,I'm didn't actually ride this, but I saw it. I think it's pretty accurate at least in the layout though.

11/ Storybook canal boats- Fairy Tale Brook Legoland Windsor

12/ Star Tours- Angry Birds 4D Thorpe Park

Since I'm yet to do a simulator, this is the closest I could find. Maybe I have hit a new low.

Now for the Studios rides

13/ Tower Of Terror- Hex Alton Towers

More so on experience than hardware.

14/Crush's Coaster- Sonic Spinball Alton Towers

Couldn't find anything exact so this will have to do.

15/ Rock an Roller Coaster- X Thorpe Park

The only comparison it could ever be.

16/ Ratatouiee- Wallace & Gromit Blackpool Pleasure Beach

17/RC Racer- Kobra

18/ Dumbo- Flying Jumbos

19/ Slinky dog- Knights Quest

20/ Tram Tour- Orient Expedition p

21/ Space a Mountain is again X due to lack of dark rides, but it will be closed when I go.

One Month to go now!!!!!!!!!!! I shall be reviewing the place for real when I finally visit.

I don't own the photos.

RC racer is more akin to Rush than Kobra (in ride experience if not appearance).  It's much faster than Kokra, the seats don't spin and it's all over far too soon!
