Any Rides You Won't Try? Or Won't Try Again?

In the thread about splitting up many people mentioned that one of the rare times they split up was when they didn't want to ride something or their significant other didn't want to. DW didn't want to ride the Tower of Terror for the longest time, but when my mom came with us one trip and rode it with me she finally gave in and loves it now.

So -- What rides have you never ridden and for what reasons? And what rides have you ridden that you don't plan on riding again?

I am convinced I will never ride Rock "n" Roller Coaster again. The first time I rode it, I was convinced I was going to die. Mostly I do not like that extreme take off in the beginning. It sucked the breath right out of me. I could not even scream. So then I was thinking great I am going to die and I can not even scream. When I got off of it I swore I would not ride it again. But several years later in a week moment, I gave in and decided to give it another try. That time I was not afraid I would die but I did not like it any better.

I don't plan on doing Tower of Terror again, nor Splash Mountain. I'm just not a thrill ride fan, but I do try and give it a chance at least once. However I try to never say never and I'm sure that some day (far in the future) the grandkids will drag me on them. Once... that's all they get. wink

I have not rode Rock 'N' Roller Coaster or Expedition Everest because one of my children has been too small every time. But this year I know I am riding Expedition Everest because my son said he wants to ride it with his Dad and then again with me.

I probably wont do Star Tours again -- made me feel sick.

As far as other rides go, most of them I will probably ride because they are there, but if I'm in a time cruch there wont be an urgency to ride things like peter pan, winnie the pooh, the great movie ride, journey into imagination, or the boat rides at Mexico and Norway.

Tower of Terror. Once. Never ever ever EVER again.

And Star Tours. The shaking is just too nerve-wrecking for me.

Did I mention NEVER again on ToT?

I will never ride anything virtual reality or most of the coasters/extreme thrill rides due to motion sickness issues.

I have ridden Big Thunder Mountain, but I generally stay away because the ride isn't fun enough to risk getting queasy.

One big exception is Test Track - I love Test Track. I don't think I could handle back-to-back rides, but given the wait times that will never be an issue.

Primevil Whirl - it felt like a carnival ride which I'm not a big fan.

No offense to everyone but I can't read this lol. I'm a roller coaster junkie, and all the rides (except for Expedition Everest) are pretty mild compared to what I usually jump onto to get my adrenaline going. I haven't rode Everest...orrr any of the roller coasters in WDW or US, except for Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, or Rock N' Roller Coaster. I'm dying to try all the awesome ones @ US. Maybe one day soon... awesome

The only thing so far that I am 100% never going to do is Summit Plummet, if that counts as a ride. Never. Ever. Not even on a dare.

Dinosaur is also on my list...I don't care for all the obnoxious bump & jerk laugh

Did we actually shake on that or was it just a loose verbal agreement that was non-binding on Thursdays?

That thing is a death trap. I have many irrational fears - including falling out, falling over...oh, and dieing.

Mission Space orange. I can't handle the g force. My equilibrium was off for hours after I rode it.

I agree with you Jeff....those water slides that go straight down scare the crap out of me

I've never ridden RNRC, Expedition everest, or splash mountain because i don't like roller coasters....I have done TOT and space mountain and am still uncertain if I will do them again....I liked them and didn't like them at the same time...LOL

Like several of you, I am not a thrill ride fan. I'll do the roller coasters at Magic Kingdom but that's as "thrill" as I get.

I avoid rides where I'll get wet, spin in continuous circles, or that look like they may be trying to kill me.
Anything that spins in circles is pretty much guaranteed to make me toss my cookies in the closest Disney-shaped topiary. I even avoid Dumbo just in case!

Ride I won't ride again: Soarin'. Great ride, but my tummy wasn't too happy with all the "swooshing" footage. I also somehow missed that if you sit in the front row, you're about 20 feet of the ground! How did I not know this until AFTER the dumb contraption lifted into the air laugh I may consider sitting in the back row if someone I go with desperately wants to ride it, but otherwise, once was enough.

Oh Jess, Splash Mountain is not a thrill ride. It is so cute. That drop is nothing. We are going to have to meet up in November and splash down a mountain. It will not be anything like your adventure on TOT.

I love all the big rides, although after doing Splash Mountain once or twice I won't waste my time. It's just cute and one big drop.

I've done EE 13 times in a row on Christmas Eve 2006. I did Summit Plummet with my car keys in my back pocket (an atomic wedgie and severe bruising on one cheek). Mission Space (pre green and orange) four times in one day with three of my kids to give everyone the chance to be the commander, engineer, pilot, and navigator. Body Wars, Star Tours, BTMR, HTT and RnRC more times than I can count. Even Space Mountain with the lights on and off. And don't get me started on the carnival-type rides.

But there is one ride that I stay away from. It screws me up for the whole day and night. This ride just addles my brain. I will not ride that darn "It's a Small World" ever!

Oh, no!!!! The song just started in my head. It's just too terrifying to even think about it!!!!!!

No desire whatsoever to ride MISSON SPACE/Orange or TOWER OF TERROR. Vomit rides, no thanks! I NEED to ride SPLASH MOUNTAIN but I'm such a baby when it comes to drops. That drop at the end terrifies me.

I'm a huge thrill ride junkie, so there aren't many things I wont do. The only exceptions to this are Mission Space and Dinosaur. Mission Space gets me because I'm claustrophobic and like I've said on here before, I'm TERRIFIED of Dinosaurs... yuck

There are a few rides at WDW that I could happily not ride again, been there, done them and lived to tell the tale (Small World and the Tea Cups, I'm looking at you). But there are none that I would never ride again and quite a few I really look forward to doing again.

Even Summit Plummit, having done it about three times so far, the only bit that get's me nervous is stepping over the little wall into the launch area where I'm ultra careful not to trip.

See, Dr J, here's my problem.

1. I love roller coasters.

2. Most of them make me hurl.

So I am very envious of you because you love them and can ride them without puking up your guts.

It's the hills that I don't like... I mean the hill in pirates and Norway both get me so I'm sure splash mountain would
