Drop rides scare me like the Pitt Fall at KW. I hate sittin there waiting for it to drop. I don't really care about the height, just the wait.

Free fall rides like power towers or Intamin 1st generation drop towers are ones thats for sure. also, RIPCORD, those extra fee swing by a tiny little cable rides, yeah, I'll ride Dominator, Steel Venom, The Hulk, Magnum, X-Flight, Dueling Dragons, Great bear, etc... but you will never get me on RIPCORD. ain't gonna happen. one other ride that just terrifies me, is that propeller ride at Dorney park. two little seats on each end with tiny little cloth harnesses. Not to mention the sit at the top for over a minute waiting for others. SCREW THAT

INSANITY on top of the Stratosphere Tower in Vegas scared the "you know what" out of me. But, I rode it 6 times anyway.

Reminds me of a county fair we were at last summer. The Tilt-A-Whirl was one of those gas-powered ones where they could "mash" the throttle and really get you spinning.

The guy running it was either drunk or crazy, not sure which, but the ride lasted almost ten minutes and he just stood there jamming the throttle lever back and forth talking to another toothless wonder the whole time.

It was a hell of a ride but we were wondering if he ever planned to stop the ride.

Rides that dangle the riders upside-down. I prefer positive g's if I'm inverted, thanks much. This means that many flat rides that go upside down are right out. Oh, well.

What's the upcharge ride at SFStL called where two people get in a gyroscope looking thing and your launched by cables and springs 200ft in the air?

I've been on several shot towers, but that thing made me tense. There's something about getting shot up while leaning back. And not to mention the operator started the countdown launch and smacked the button before she got to zero...B****!!! I'll expect that next time ;)

VertiGO (in its orignial form) was a really scary ride. To this day, its probably the most frightening thing I have done. Metal bolts attached to a fabric vest? I think I prefer my restraints permanently attached to the vehicle. Yeah, that was a heck of a ride.

What looks really scary is the Funtime Star Flyer that they have at Prater Park in Vienna. A wave swinger attached to a drop ride (with drops!)?! That goes in the "just wrong" category!

water slides scare me. The vertical drop at boomerang bay got me. When i slid through i hit my forhead on the tub and slid down while knocked out. I want to do a looping waterslide though!

Rides that scared me the first time:

Iron Wolf (first standup, dont ask me why)

Big Shot @ the Stratosphere (amazing ride though)

MF (that ride is mana from heaven and I no longer am scared boarding it)

Rides that allways scare me

Anything that stops high up in the air (Turbo Drops, Intamin Drops, and yes even Ferris Wheels)

Power Tower Red Side when Im facing the structure (everytime it looks like the thing is going to crash through the roof)

However, I have never let fear stop me from riding a ride thus far and continue to frequently ride even rides I know scare me
