I would have to say both Acro and Deja Vue on my first trip to SFOG. Acro was only the second drop ride that I had ever been on and I almost backed out of doing it. Of course the anticipation was a lot worse than the actual drop. And then the first time I was pulled up the spike on Deja Vue, I about crapped myself. I had only just ridden my first coaster three months before and up to that point the most thrilling thing I had ever been on was a B&M invert. This was totally a different beast. Totally made the 1 1/2 hours I waited for it worth it.

I must say the Pepsi Python at Coney Island (Cincy) scared me pretty bad because it is so shotty, extremely rough and the lap bars barely work. That ride throws you around all sorts of ways, not fun. I personally don't get scared on coasters/thrill rides because I know that I am very safe on them but I must say Drop Zone (Pki) gets me ancey but I love it and Greezed Lightnin' (Sfkk) freaks me somethin major when you go in the loop backwards because you get this odd little hang time lol.
I don't post here enough to warrant a signature.

Fearfall at IOA. It's the only space shot I'll even ride. It's actually the only ride that scares me that I still ride on a regular basis.

I think X is the scariest ride I've ever been on. I've ridden it twice and I still have no idea what happens on it! I remeber falling toward the ground and flipping around a whole bunch of times then I'm back in the station. But when you are going over the drop facing the ground that's the scariest/ best part, mainly because it's the only part I can remember.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Acrophobia, its one of the few rides that still scares me every time I ride it.

There's nothing like a good SCAD tower.. Even on my fourth dive, I kept wanting to back out on the way up. I'm not a screamer, but about half way down that fourth time I couldn't hold it in. You can't see where you're going, and it doesn't slow down near the bottom like most drop rides, you're accelerating ALL the way to the net.

Any Intamin tower will pretty much do it for me. So far, the best is at Kings Dominion (Haven't rode Acro yet)

The first time you ride X, the little dip at the top made me feel a little weird. You don't know when the drop is coming.

Looking down the first drop of Son of Beast. You know the pain that is inevitable.

No coaster/flat/upcharge has ever made me scared...
A few made me uneasy.. But I still didnt hold on or anything lame...

First time ever on MF.. in the frontseat going up the lift.. it was like "so..tall..." But once I got to the top it was nothing..

Getting loaded into a SlingShot. and looking up at the towers 300 feet up for the firts time.. uneasy.. still hands free...

DropZone PKI first time... going up i was a bit ":-\" but once it stopped going up I had my arms and legs out..
:roll: Coasters and Rides are fun... not scarey

hmmmmm, I dunno what ride scared me the most. Probably my first time on Skycoaster. But after that I don't get scared much when it comes to rides.
