What rides scare you?

The only rides that ever made me nervous are YO-YO's. And that;s only when the ride is full. I know it sounds stupid, but i don't like them. I've been hit by other chairs so many times, I don't like them. I've done Ripcords, I love them, I've done every kind of drop tower, Never had any complaints.

Oh yeah... the Williams Grove Cyclone.

Not the biggest... not the fastest... not the most intense... not the most anything... But you are never qutie sure if it is going to remain standing long enough for the train to finish the circuit. Also... trains that have locking lap bars that don't lock always are pretty high up on my "scare" list. Does that thing have upstop wheels? I mean, I know it is supposed to have up stop wheels... but do we really know how many of them are still there? After all... if they break off, and we can't see that they are missing... what's the harm?

Add into this the earlier post about "any ride operated by an inebriated carnie" and you get double the "fun". *** Edited 4/18/2005 6:47:47 PM UTC by SLFAKE***

The eagles got moved???? That was one of my favorite non-coaster rides there!!! I haven't been in a while, perhaps I need to make another trip there and brave the Delirium! lol

You are not a very good fanboy now are you?

They are now at Carowinds and doing just fine :)
Finally, the south has a set of their own again.

Well, I think one coaster that I am not too sure about is the Big Dipper at Camden Park in my hometown. I have heard that there has been track work done, but the trains are in horrible shape. I would like to see them fully restored and functioning with the headlights.

1) Ferris wheels. Hanging there swinging just freaks out my fear of heights.

2) Any ride at a park where I don't have confidence in their maintenance. They can all kill you if they aren't maintained.
