Mission:SPACE always creeped me out because I'm super claustrophobic, but now that I see there are two different experiences that can be had, I may attempt the mission with the Green team.

When I was a child, Haunted Mansion PETRIFIED me. Now, it's in my top three faves.

I did rebel against rock n rollercoaster for a long time just because i can't stand Aerosmith. Turns out thats a fun ride tho. :p
The other one i haven't been on in years is Peter Pans flight. But i actually love it. Its just such a short ride and usually has a very long queue length. :(
The Tiki Room certainly has it's charm, but boy oh boy, those accents... José's accent especially.

I did Stitch's Great Escape once and will never do it again, just a waste of time for me.
Dinosaur scared me half to death and the bouncing just did my back in - never again
Tea Cups - I agree, way to much spinning!

I'll try anything once, but once was WAAAAAY more then enough for Animal Kingdom's Primeval Whirl (gave me a killer headache) and Magic Kingdom's Stitch's Great Escape (and I loved Alien Encounter, probably because there was no chili cheese dog burp smell sprayed in my face).

Yup, that burp smell almost made me offer up a protein spill. Absolutely refuse to go on it again. Ever.

Actually most of the Fantasy Land rides, never appealed to me because mostly they have horrendous lines and never wanted to wait. I did always try to wait for Mister Toads but that was not often. Also AK I have a hard time with most of the rides, maybe because I didn't grow up with it a lot. I will run over to do Everest and Extinction, plus throw in the Rapids if I have time. Otherwise it's not a big deal with those rides.

Would the less intense side be ok or is the whole attraction completely out for you?

I will not ride It's Tough to Be a Bug. I can ride thrill rides no problem but I can't stand the poking in the back and the like. Same with Honey I Shrunk the Audience. I will ride Mission Space but only the Green side. While I have ridden the Orange Side, I was a bit dizzy afterwards and needed to eat to settle my stomach.

Oh that is too bad ~ It's Tough to Be a Bug is one of my favorites! I do sit up a little bit toward the end and watch where I sit so I don't get poked or stung ;) The little rollers when the bugs are exiting are kind of a nice massage though :lol:

:( Sorry you can't experience it...although I will say that it is one of the attractions I wouldn't mind if I could never experience again. The motion and confinement don't bother me, but someone had obviously had a protein spill in our capsule not long before we were in it and the smell was so strong that I had to hold my breath as much as I could so I didn't add to it :shock:

I agree with not liking either of the 2 mentioned as well.
Where is the best place to sit to avoid the bee sting? I saw It's Tough to Be a Bug once and the sting hurt for the rest of the day, so I haven't been back.

I like the Alien Encounters stuff before it all broke lol after a year or couple more, dunno, only a few worked correctly.

I was weary my first time, still am a little bit. The vertigo kicks in a little but not enough to make me sick. Just make my head spin lol

You can see the holes in the seats and seat backs if you look closely ~ I make sure to slide forward a bit in the spots in the action where I know they are coming. The poke in the back hurts far worse than the one to the legs. I'm not even sure the leg one was working the last time we went.

I have to hold my hands up to stop the over the shoulder restraints from smushing down too hard on my shoulders when the show first starts ~ the first time I experienced the show I didn't know about the restraints and they came down way too far, even though they said they would travel down and then bounce back a bit after they contacted your shoulders.

Great! Thanks! I will have to remember that and perhaps next time will give it another try.
