The Ride Doctor Doom's Fearfall It's the right tip for anyone who likes a bit of a radical toy. That's because, yes, it gives a certain fear, seriously.

Doctor Doom's Fearfall is located at Universal's Islands of Adventure, a park at Universal Orlando Resort.

It opened to the public in May 1999 and has been in operation ever since. It has more than 20 years of history, receiving the most diverse visitors from all over the world.

As you know, Islands is a theme park and lives up to several iconic characters on the big screen, such as Spider man, Hulk, Popeye, Harry Potter and many others.

Thus, the Doctor Doom's Fearfall attraction is one more dedicated to the drawings, which have been admired by spectators for so long.

For those who like an emotion, it is more than necessary to put it in the script to go to the toy.

The details we will talk about later. Ready to embark on this adventure?

The Story of Doctor Doom

Doctor Doom is a character from Marvel Comics. In Portuguese, he is known as Doctor Destiny, which, at first, has the name of Victor Von Doom.

He is a comic book supervillain and a direct enemy of the Fantastic Four, as well as the Avengers and Spider-Man.

In the Fantastic Four movie, even, the character appears and is the villain of the production.

Fate, on the other hand, has many powers that are quite difficult to fight against, because of the armor, his intellect and the "switching bodies".

In Islands of Adventure, therefore, the villain received an attraction dedicated exclusively to him and his abilities.

The attraction

As soon as you enter the attraction, you'll pass through the laboratory, where there are even some televisions that show the Doctor's inventions.

The whole place is very “sinister”, so to speak. The corridors are long and very dark, with colors that make you afraid and with a feeling of “coldness”, like blue.

Even from the outside, when you look at the towers, it can be scary. However, the attraction itself is not that frightening.

Passing through the doors, which look like those of an elevator, travelers will sit in the chairs, comforted for the launch that will take place on the platform.

After the countdown is over, the passengers are launched into the air (this makes the stomach flutter!).

Unlike other towers, this one, in particular, goes up faster than going down, can you believe it?

Doctor Doom's Fearfall somewhat resembles the Falcon's Fury, however, with less intensity, so to speak.

It's 60 meters high and the whole trip lasts, more or less, somewhere between a minute and a minute and a half.

Important to remember that your legs and arms are loose, which gives a feeling of falling and real momentum!

During this time when it is in the air, going back and forth, it is possible to see the entire park.

From a cabin, it is very nice to see, mainly, the Hulk roller coaster, which is practically in front.

As said, there are two towers, one next to the other.

Therefore, the person responsible for the attraction will direct you to one of the towers and that's where the fun will take place. The minimum height allowed, however, is 1.32 meters.

Here's an excerpt from Doctor Doom's Fearfall:

Where is Islands of Adventure?

The attraction is very close to the park entrance, next to the Spider-Man simulator and the Hulk roller coaster, in the Marvel Super Hero Island area.

Of course, before entering the park, be sure to grab your map to ensure you are heading in the right direction.

Here's a tip: as there are few people at a time (there are four seats in each tower), so it's interesting to be one of the first attractions to go when you arrive at the park. This is because, as the capacity is small, the queues are large.

Oh, and remember: if you have any health problems, such as cardiovascular diseases, and problems in other places, such as spine, neck and the like, you should not go to the toy! Pregnant women can't enjoy it either.
