Bumper cars are a fun ride that allows players to bump into each other. Build a small arena with barriers and add cars that players can control. Make the arena’s surface using Cyan Terracotta and add lighting to make it fancier. You can even make the surface using Ice blocks, which also works fine.

The carousel is another classic ride that you’ll see in every carnival. It can be built using horses or other rideable mobs like llamas. The ride can rotate using the Redstone mechanism, and you can even add some music to create a more enjoyable experience.

A drop tower is one of the most thrilling rides that you can build in Minecraft. Lay down Sticky Pistons on a surface and put some red blocks in its center to build the tower’s structure. Make sure you put Slime cubes on top of the Stick Pistons so that it has a suspension mechanism. To trigger the system, use Stone pressure plates, and your ride is ready.

While building a roller coaster might be a strenuous task, it is worth the effort. Lay down several oak wood planks to make the structure’s skeleton and put the powered rail on top of it. You can also add water slides to travel to the starting point easily.

Build a fast-paced tilt-a-whirl ride with cars that spin and tilt as they move along the track. Use powered rails to create sudden stops and starts.

Teacup Ride

Using the same design concept as Tilt-A-Whirl, you can make a simple Teacup Ride. Instead of using carts, just build a teacup as your ride. Likewise, use power rails for moving the teacups.

Zip Line

A zip line is a thrilling ride that allows players to zip through the air. Build two pillars of any blocks parallel to each other and add a cable for players to ride on. Then, using Redstone, create a mechanism that propels players through the air.
