I just came back from a trip to Florida. My family and I went to all of the Disney parks and my dad and I went to IOA.I will rate the coaster useing a scale one(bad) to ten(great). I am just going to mention the parks with coasters.
Magic Kingdom -
Big Thunder Mt.-Great themeing. Ok coaster.A couple of parts you almost get airtime. I would give this coaster a 6.
Barnstromer- A cool little coaster. I would give it a 5.
Space Mountain- Good themeing. Ok ride. I give it a 3.
Overall- Parks good. Some great rides.
Mgm-Disney Studios -
Rock n' Roller Coast- Great themeing. Great ride. My first lim coaster. The ride is intense. I would give it a 8.
Overall- Great Park. Some great rides.
Dueling Dragons- Great storyline. Cool queue. Line was under 10 mins all day. The door to get back on the ride from the exit is a great idea.
The dueling parts are the best.
Fire- My favorite out of the two. Great airtime on the second hill/drop. More intense than ice. It is also way smoother then ice. I give it a 8. We rode it 2x.
Ice- The roughest B&m I been on. We went on front car. We went on it 3x.The wall climbing cobra roll is great. I would give it a 6.
Hulk-The smoothest coaster next to MF.My second favorite coaster. The launch is so cool.I hope more parks get this kind of ride. We went on it 2x. I wish we could have went on it more :(. I would give it a 10.
Overall-A great park. I would give the park a 10 but the worker make me give it a 8. Some of worker were lazy. Some of them care more about there friends then the rides.
What I thought about the Fast Pass and the Fast Track-They worked great. I great idea. They didn't work good on test track (with the fast pass I had to wait a ha昀 漀昀 愀 栀漀甀爀⤀⸀ 䄀 渀漀琀栀攀爀 最爀攀愀琀 椀搀攀愀 愀琀 戀漀琀栀 搀椀猀渀攀礀 愀渀搀 䤀伀䄀 眀愀猀 猀椀渀最氀攀 爀椀搀攀爀 氀椀渀攀⸀ 䘀漀爀 攀砀愀洀瀀氀攀 䘀攀愀爀 䘀愀氀氀 愀琀 䤀漀愀 栀愀搀 愀 栀漀甀爀 眀愀椀琀 眀椀琀栀 琀栀攀 猀椀渀最氀攀 爀椀搀攀爀猀 氀椀渀攀 䤀 眀愀椀琀攀搀 洀椀渀⸀㰀戀爀㸀㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀㰀戀爀㸀 㰀戀爀㸀㰀戀爀㸀㰀戀爀㸀㰀戀爀㸀㰀戀爀㸀㰀戀爀㸀㰀戀爀㸀

Just a hint. The next time you're at epcot and want to ride test track, don't do fast-pass. Instead, if you're willing to split up for one ride out of the day, get in the single-riders line. Since the cars are designed three across, they actually have a single-riders line to try to keep running at maximum occupancy per car. I've never waited longer than 20 minutes with the single-rider line.
Hope this helps,

It's about time Orlando got in to the thrill ride business in a big way. I keep hearing one great thing after another about IOA. I just wish I could visit this year!

I do love IOA but for me it was a little too 'in your face' for me. There seemed to be a lack of space on the islands which meant everything was cramped. Don't get me wrong - the rides are amazing, especially Spiderman!
I prefer Busch Gardens Tampa because of the shorter queues and better atmosphere.
