Description And Comments
Here you are, strapped into a seat with your feet dangling, blasted 200 feet up in the air, and then allowed to partially free-fall back down. Imagine the midway game wherein a muscled-up lunkhead swings a sledgehammer, propelling a metal sphere up a vertical shaft to ring a bell—on this ride, you’re the metal sphere.
That prospect sounds worse than it actually is—the scariest part of the ride by far is the apprehension that builds as you sit, strapped in, waiting for the ride to launch. Blasting up and falling down are actually pleasant, with one exhilarating, fleeting moment of negative-g “air time” at the top. Riders in chambers three and four get a great view of the park, while those in one and two look out over I-4 and International Drive.
- This attraction participates in Universal Express.
- This attraction has a Single Rider line.
We’ve seen glaciers that move faster than the line for Doctor Doom’s Fearfall. If you want to ride without investing half a day, be one of the first to ride. If you’re on hand at opening time, being among the first isn’t too difficult (mainly because the nearby Wizarding World, Hulk, and Spider-Man attractions are bigger draws). Alternatively, the ride often has no wait near the end of the operating day, and the view is especially nice at night.
Fortunately, as this reader discovered, Doctor Doom also has a singles line that’s nearly always open:
If you ask a staff member for the single-rider line, they’ll send you through the exit in the arcade. Then just follow the signs.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Doctor Doom's Fearfall when you visit on a day with a given Universal's Islands of Adventure Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will be at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Doctor Doom's Fearfall Wait Times.
