Scare Factor

What's the scariest ride you've ever been on? Not in terms of thrilling scary; I'm talking about pee your pants scary.

Since it was my first launched coaster, id have to say Hulk.

I wasnt expecting the launch to be so powerful, and the roll up top into the dive back to earth made me yell something about doing Jesus or something.

Insane, but I love it now except for the ear battering.

Acrophobia...it's one of the only rides that really still scares me everytime I ride it.

Acrophobia. I'm up to 512 rides on it, but it still...even today, makes me uneasy.

I still get scared on drop towers, but add me to the Acro count. Seeing the bottom of the tower while your up there makes it way scarier than the other drop towers. The helplessness when your feet leave the ground too.
Power Tower drop makes me uneasy when I'm on the inside of the towers. I don't like being able to see the other towers because it puts everything in perspective.

Thrillshot was scary at first but very thrilling. I rode it the year it opened and did 2 rides on it. Sky coasters were also creepy being as I wasn't sure if my cousin (Squirmy Wormy) was gonna pull the right thing or not.She get's things backwards often =)

Acro- there is something about that ride. It is quite possibly the scariest thrill ride I've been on. Something about having the whole lower half of your body dangling and being tilted toward the ground just freaks me out.

Drop Zone (PKI)- The height is just terrifying. Freefalls scare the crap outta me.

Tall skycoasters- Right when you pull the cord and you take that initial nose dive before the slack in the rope ends...yeah, so scary.

Flight of Fear- Ever since they removed the OTSRs, I feel so vulnerable. The supports just feel so close in the dim light. The first time I rode it with the lap bars, I was ducking toward my best friend and clutching him in terror. It was probably quite the moment because he gets pretty scared on any coaster and here is the seasoned rider gripping him for dear life.

Those are the rides that consistently scrare me to death.

I must add Drop Zone @ PGA as I could have experienced true freefall, unrestrained if my friend didn't tell the ride ops we weren't secured...As for sky coasters, that initial drop when there's slack in the cable makes it scary being as you fall straight down, head first and suddenly jerked by the cable as slack lets out.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I thought the backwards lift on Stunt Fall @ WBMW Madrid was pretty damn scary the first time. It was my first shuttle coaster, and it just went steeper and steeper. But the rest of the ride was just fun :D
