Two Men Rode All 46 Rides At Walt Disney World in One Day!

Walt Disney World Rides

On November 7, 2014, Shane Lindsay and Ted Tamburo rode all 46 rides at all four parks at Disney World in Orlando, Florida all in one day!

They managed to hit all the rides in 17 hours running a total of 22 miles around the parks.

Both men are in their 40s and grew up in the Midwest. As kids, they visited the parks every year or so, which is where they developed their love of Disney World. About 20 years ago the two men met on an AOL chat room about theme parks.

Shane has been living in Orlando, Florida for the past nine years. He said that he has visited Disney World hundreds of times. The idea of hitting all 46 rides in one day came when he mentioned to Ted that as a kid he only attended the park for one day each visit, so it had become a game for him to take as many rides as he could each day he went.

Here is what Shane had to say about the experience,

People find it really hard to believe I guess. It’s not like we’re solving world hunger. But it’s fun to have a little challenge that no one has ever done before and people think is impossible.”

The two men only met in person for the first time last year when they made their first attempt at hitting all of the rides in one day. They almost made it, but unfortunately Tomorrowland, Speedway and the Astro Orbiter were closed that day due to the weather.

Earlier this year the two men started planning their second attempt, which they documented on their website. Shane said that they are planning on releasing a video about the whole experience in the future.

Wow! Could you imagine going on all the rides in just one day! It would be fun, but exhausting!
