It's not a bad ride, but it is very short. I wouldn't wait more than 15 minutes for this.

Good theming with the queue and i especially like the sliding doors that reveal the ride vehicle. The ride itself...nervous to start out, launches you up and you come back down. Nothing too fancy. I'd skip this if it had anything more than a 15 minute wait.

This is a descent ride. The themeing is pretty nice. But the ride itself was average. It has a decent amount of airtime most of which is felt from the kind of weak launch. This doesn't mean the ride should be missed by anyone visiting the park though. From the top it provides great views of the whole park and even Universal Studios. Overall it was average.

Approaching Universal, along with the iconic green Hulk, Doom dominates Universal’s impressive skyline with its two distinctive purple towers. Well, Doom definitely is the best looking S&S tower I’ve come across from the color scheme to the ride’s entrance. I especially like the tower’s violent-looking cap, and while subtle, it definitely adds some power to the ride’s appearance. While lines were never at all long during my visit (15 minutes tops), I utilized the single-rider line which was great since no one else ever used it so I got on with no wait at all! This probably can be attributed to the fact that many don’t even know of the single-rider line’s existence or its location (it’s on the second floor of the arcade where the ride’s exit is).

Doom begins with a great launch sequence. Once locked into place, Doom reveals his evil scheme- he has created a new invention to finally defeat the Fantastic Four and it’s powered by our screams! This only heightened my anticipation for the launch, but not only that, it also made the launch a surprise. While on most S&S towers the launch is no longer a surprise to me since I can tell when it launches because of the sounds the tower makes, Doom was significantly quieter than other S&S towers and the audio talked over it leading to a very sudden and suspenseful launch.

Now honestly, I wasn’t expecting all that much from Doom in terms of the actual ride after many negative comments I had heard recently about the ride being dramatically less forceful to the point where there was almost no air at all, but boy was that proven wrong by my many rides. The sudden launch not only caught me by my unawares, but it was quite forecful. However, that launch possibly is overshadowed by the massive burst of ejector air I experienced at the peak of the tower, as it is definitely some of the strongest air I have ever experienced from an S&S tower. Really my only complaint with Doom is it’s incredibly short length, a downfall that cripples almost all drop towers.

Now overall Doom is definitely one of the best drop towers out there thanks to the incredible theming (both off-ride and during the suspenseful launch sequence) and great ride it provides. Not only is the ride itself great, but lines were almost nonexistent during my visit, making many re-rides possible on this thrilling attraction. While personally I prefer getting dropped down than launched in general, Doom is one of the best launched towers out there for sure.

Doctor Dooms Freefall is a decent freefall ride standing at 150 feet tall, the park tallest ride. This ride has excellent themeing but, tends to be unpopular because the entrance is in an alley. It seems when you are waiting for your ride in front of the entrance door to the tower it takes 5+ mintues but the ride is only 90 seconds. The ride takes a while to launch after you start. When you reach the top you have massive amounts of airtime. They say it&#39.s forced down but, not really. The ride has more airtime on the second launch but, not as much as the first. There is a pointless 3rd launch that does not add any thing to the expierence. This is a decent ride one of the weaker ones in this area of the park. Worth waiting 20-30 minutes. (use the single rider line for a drasticly lower wait time.)

I thought this ride was lacking. The theming was great, but unlike most space shots, this was slower on the way down and did not seem to free fall.

I love this ride. The theming is great. The theming in the quee line is great with the robots and everything else. I liked how the entrance to the ride was an elevator door. When you get on the ride the talking before you take off gives you a anticapation feeling. Then smoke/mist shoots out and you launch. The launch itself gives you the best feeling. Also a tremendous view of the whole park. But one of the best additions of this ride is the single rider line which is never more than a 5 minute wait and at the right times of the year there is no wait in the single rider line. Great ride

Weakest space shot Ive been on. I liked the Doctor Doom theming and the launch was cool with Doom talking and the mist and the launch was sudden, but not that strong. Unfortunately, the ride gave no air at the top, but there were some decent views.

This ride is so much fun, and it is all because of that first launch. It is so unexpected and I love it, plus it gets great airtime. I also love the view that you get at the top. One of a kind.
