Millennium Force's first drop just gives that "Dear God" feeling. Nothing I've ever experienced comes close. Steel Phantom's second drop into the ravine is classic. Kennywood's Jack Rabbit, of all things, can be pretty scary. The double dip really throws you out of your seat.

The scariest drop I've been on is actually the drop on Perilous Plunge at Knott's Berry Farm.

The scariest drop I've been on is the Oblivion at Alton Towers in England. That drop is the steepest drop I've ever experienced.It was fun and thrilling though.

I would also say the Millennium Force. Second time I went on it, I thought I had screamed the whole way down, and after blinking, I realized the train didn't drop yet. LOL.

Any large drop when I was a kid scared me, but nothing much does anymore. In recent times, the Scariest drop I experience was indeed on the Jack Rabbit. We were siting in the last seat and I had my hand up and wasn't expecting much. Soon as the back got pulled over the dip I was out of my seat with nothing but the little leather strap holding me in. I was taking aghast and quickly tried to grab the bar. My knee cap managed to rub against the bar and I got a bruise. OUCH. I held on the rest of the ride. The back is extremly wicked going over the Dip.

Steel Phantom's/Phantom's Revenge's second drop scares me more than MF's. Not that MF wasn't scary, but plunging into a ravine and nearly getting your head (and now hands!) get chopped off scares me more.

Jack Rabbit for me too. That little strap and stationary bar just doesn't do it for me. I will not ride the back seat of this coaster.

And I also agree with the second drop of Steel Phantom - mostly because I feared the intense head banging that was about to occur.

It may not be the tallest. It may not be the fastest. It may not be the steepest. But I have never been so frightened in my life as I was when I took my first trip on the new Stealth. There was only a little time, especially in the first car, to get acclimated with my new bearings after having been put face first to the ground. Then the drop.
And we all screamed in panic wondering if the gortex-type shoulder straps were gonna hold.....................

Of course, it is no longer scary after the first ride.

But the same cannot be said of Desperado, in Nevada. It's initial drop still terrifies.

I would have to say the drop after the turnaround on Screechin' Eagle at Americana. It doesn't look like much, but just the anticipation of flying out of my seat and remaining standing involuntarily pretty much until the train hits the brakes is enough to scare me out of my wits! :)

I have to concur with Coasterbob about the drop on Stealth. I remember my first ride I was screaming like a little schoolgirl. It was embarassing and exhilarating at the same time. But like he mentioned, it was only scary the first time. A drop that scares me everytime is Goliath. I'm not freaked-out scared or anything, but I still get a little nervous when I crest the hill and hit that first drop. Peace. :)

For me Millenium Force was definitely the scariest drop on a roller coaster I have been on.

Want to talk about vertigo? Sit on the left side of Millennium Force and lean out of the car. Scariest drop, Gemini. It hits it steepest point very quickly, which gives you the 'stomach in the throat' feeling. Hold your hands up on the drop, especially at the bottom.

That's why I hold one for dear life when I ride the Jack Rabbit--especially when in the back seat. *** This post was edited by tails on 3/7/2001. ***
