The Barnstormer

The Barnstormer

An Attraction in Magic Kingdom

Last updated: June 12, 2024

At a Glance
The Barnstormer is a dinky little coaster with a brief-but-zippy ride. Of the 53 seconds the ride is in motion, 32 seconds are consumed in leaving the loading area, being ratcheted up the first hill, and braking into the off-loading area. The actual time you spend careering around the track: 21 seconds.

A Westport, Connecticut, reader warns adults that the ride may not be as tame as it looks:

A nightmare that should have gone in your “Eats Adults” section. It looked so innocent—nothing hidden in the dark, over quickly—but it took me hours to stop feeling nauseated.

Though the reader’s point is well taken, we think The Barnstormer is a good introduction to roller coasters, one that can help your kids step up to more-adventuresome rides. (Seven Dwarfs Mine Train would be the next to try.)

The cars are too small for most adults and tend to whiplash taller people. Parties without children should skip this one. Because the ride draws in kids visually and aurally, it subjects families to slow-moving lines. If The Barnstormer is high on your children’s hit parade, try to ride within the first 2 hours that Fantasyland is open.

A Cary, North Carolina, mom offers a heads-up for solo parents:

There are some fussy rules for riding The Barnstormer. Each of the ride cars holds only two people, and every child under 7 must be accompanied by an adult. That means a single parent can’t take two small children on the ride alone—you either need to rustle up another adult to help or skip it entirely.
