What ride/attraction won't you ride?

Post by LITTLEBIT » Aug Thu 12, 2010 5:35 pm

Whether you've never riden or rode it once and never will again, what ride would someone have to drag you on kicking and screaming? Or if you are that adamant, what ride do you simply have no desire to ride?

Mine is the Astro Orbiter and the Speedway. When I was a kid it was Peter Pan, I was scared to death of the crocodile.

We drive to WDW and I refuse to ride the Speedway. I've been going to WDW since 1975 and I've never been on it!

Tower of Terror, Astro Orbiter, Stitch's Great Escape and Dinosaur...

(though for the longest time I wouldn't go on Pirates...I was scared of the "waterfalls"...it's the best part to me now!)

Hmmm, I'll ride anything. I haven't been since they added Mission Space or Expedition Everest but I'll try them the next time I go. I usually pysch myself out pretty good in the queue in Tower of Terror but I enjoy the actual ride once I'm on it.

I'll ride anything as well, the Speedway always seemed like a waste while Astro Orbiter was just too busy.

The Speedway reminds me of when I was little though and thought driving that car was the coolest thing ever!!

Mine has to be RNR. I just hate the idea of inversions and corkscrews. I also won't go on the Kali River Rapids. I don't like the idea of potentially getting soaked from head to toe.

Speaking of getting soaked, last time we went I insisted we ride Kali River Rapids because it was the only ride at AK that my DS could remember riding. However I put him in a poncho and risked myself since we only had one. And sure enough, I ended up soaked. But he was smiling the whole time so it was worth it.

The same DS is really looking forward to RNR. He wasn't tall enough last time and he loves Aerosmith.

RnR is so smooth you almost don't notice the twists and turns and inversions. That was the first roller coaster I ever went on that went upside down. I remember being a little nervous and the older lady beside me said I would have fun. Right before the limo launched, she reached over and patted my hand. It was so sweet and nice of her. A nice gesture from one Disney person to another.

I had the same dislikes too, Len90, but then I decided to ride Mont de L'Espace: De La Terre A La Lune at DLP. I thought it would be like Space Mountain. It wasn't. It had the corkscrews and inversions in it. I loved the ride! I had to admit, when it was over and I got out of the ride car I nearly hit the floor. My equilibrium was totally disoriented by the ride - but, hey, it was one "heck" of a ride! :D

I also will not ride Kali River Rapids. I rode once and got totally soaked. Even on the hottest summer day I don't want to spend the next several hours trying to get dried out. Nothing feels worse than going into an air conditioned attraction or restaurant when you are wet. In addition, I will not ride the spinning version of Mission Space. The "less intense" version is fine but the "more intense" version just does not agree with me.

I tend to pass on Mission: Space. Not because of the spinning, but I just found the ride boring. There was nothing about it that made me go "Oh wow!".

I won't ride the Speedway until I have kids. It's just one of those things that isn't worth the wait or the time you could be doing other awesome things in MK. When you have kids they could possibly make it worth it...but not without them.

I won't ride the tea cups. Too much spinning for me. Same for the Primevil Whirl in AK.

Will never, ever if I can help it, go see the Tiki Room Under New Management. I hate that they changed out the original attraction and put in Iago and Zazu to attract kids. After I saw it once, I was done with it.

Also Speedway because it's stinky and not fun.
