  • [Question] Any rides you loved as a child but now can't stand?

    I was posting some pics from my recent trip report, one of the last was the Teacups spinning.

    This ride used to be a real favorite of mine as a child, but I can't bear the thought of spinning around like that now. I'm sure I would be sick.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Perhaps it's getting older. I still love the roller coaster type rides, Indy is one of my favorites. But the Teacups, no way!

    If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

    Autopia for sure.

    I loved it as a child but as I got older I stopped riding it. I have had an AP for 6 years now and I have been to DLR and DCA hundreds of times. I don't think I have rode it more then 10 or 15 times.

      I can't say that I even liked this one as a child, but I have never been one for Snow White's Scary Adventures......and she's not even featured in the attraction!

        Count me in for the Teacups. But I stopped riding more out of protest after they installed the thingamajig that keeps it from going really fast. The best thing was the "Will I barf? Will I not?" feeling after screaming with laughter during the whole ride.

        And, no, I never did spill any protein.

          submarines. LOVED them as a child and I really don't care for them now.

          for a while it was the train, but I have come back around to liking the train again.

You know…the Mickey in us.

              Even when I was in my teens, I started to dislike riding the Matterhorn. It's just too rough. If someone sat in front of me, I was afraid of getting my teeth bashed in. If I was in front, I was afraid I was going to smack the person in back.

              Don't get me wrong, I love roller coasters. I still like the Matterhorn in general. I just won't ride it.

                  I rode the Matterhorn last year after not having ridden it in at least 10 years. Seriously, those bobsleds have shrunk! Not nearly as much fun when you need a shoehorn to get in and/or out.

                      The closest thing for me would be the Jungle Cruise... it's not so much that I don't like it anymore, but I don't go on NEARLY as much as I used to. I'm not sure why. I guess I got kinda tired of it. And I miss old Trader Sam.

                      Another would be Tarzan's Treehouse. I loved the Swiss Family Treehouse, but when the Tarzan transformation occurred, I've only been up probably 4-5 times.

                          AUTOPIA! Hands down!
                          I loved that ride as a kid! Now....not soo much!
                          I feel cramped in that little car cuz i'm too tall and the smell of the exhaust gives me a headache!
                          ICK!

                            Ride it - you might still like it. My son loves Dumbo.....and I usually am the one that takes him on his flight.....

                              For me it's space mountain. I used to love it..... but I hate it now. Too dark, and I had a bad moment on there once
