  • [Question] Rides you used to like, but now avoid for some reason

    The Tea Cups.

    When I was a kid, I never understood why my Dad said this ride made him sick. Now that I'm older, I understand him 100%!

    I'm with you on the Tea Cups... I'm even training my 2 and a half year old. We have a promotional book sent to us from the resort, and it has ton of pictures in it. Each picture he's saying, "Me try?" and I say, "Yes of course you can try that..." except with the tea cups, through rigorous training he sees that pic and says, "No try that..." Good boy.

    I found myself a bit nauseous after riding "California Screaming" for the first time...but that might have been something I ate...I MAY try that again.

                Indy and Tower of Terror for me. I LOVE the theming on them, and I still think they are great rides, but they tend to give me headaches and backaches, so I stay off them now.

                And unfortunately, PotC. Since they added more smoke/fog that ride has triggered asthma attacks for me when I've been on it. So now I don't go.

                  Howdy Pards,

                  Age, or rather getting older, is not necessarily a fun thing. I'll be honest with you I loved Dumbo, for instance. But, now, there are no young ones to take me on it...and my wife has gone on ahead to Heaven...and somehow I feel, no matter how young at heart I may feel, that it would not be appropriate for an ol' timer like me to go on it.

                  I have wonderful memories of a time, not so long ago when my nephew, a young boy then (now taller than me and serving in the Army) took me on Dumbo and turned it into a
                  roller coaster ride...up and down, up and down...

                  Getting older is not all it is cracked up to be...and, like Peter Pan, I would strongly advise against it. It's too late for me I suppose...the gray hair and wrinkles of age gives me away every time. But, like I say, I remember those thrilling days of yesteryear when I could ride that little elephant with the big ears...

                  I guess I'll just go over and sail with the pirates again...or maybe take a ride on the Ol' Mark Twain...

                  Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

                    I know it's been beaten to death but gotta go with the Matterhorn. It used to be a multiple ride per visit attraction for our family. Since the new cars were put in none of us want to ride it any more. We range in age from 8-50 and we all went from laughing through the whole ride to screaming OWWWW.
                    The old style cars were rough but it was more of a fun beating than a truly painful one.
                    And being on the heavy side makes it an art to get my feet out from the holes they go in and lifting myself out of the car at the end.

                      I think this may be the next ride I avoid. The last time I went on it (on my last visit a couple of years ago) it was very unpleasant. I wish they would redo the entire track like they did with Space Mountain.

                        Matterhorn is a definite avoid for me now. It has always been a Disneyland favorite of mine but ever since experiencing the new sleds I don't think I'll ever ride it again. My back hurt the whole rest of the day after riding.

                        Star Tours has unfortunately become another for me. I will still go on it if whoever I go with wants to ride, but I really hate it now. The new adventures that are practically just prequel trilogy based made me mad along with not liking 3D a whole lot. I feel like they completely ruined another one of my favorite rides.


                        Hopefully the refurbs for Indiana Jones and Thunder Mountain Railroad won't turn me off those rides, too.
                        Merrily on our way to nowhere at all.

                          Pirates of the Caribbean. It's wonderful, but I find the ride to be a little too long for my short attention span. There aren't many surprises in it for me anymore. I think the last time I rode it was just so I could count how many animals there were (a question inspired from an older thread on this forum).

                              Used to enjoy Star Tours, now it makes me want to hurl. I've found as I've gotten older (bleah!) I tend to get a touch of motion sickness. First it was no more Tea Cups, then no more Star Tours. I'm hanging on to riding Space Mountain and Calif Screamin' by a thread. I can manage them each ONCE, on separate days, right before a break back at the hotel to settle my innards. I just HATE motion sickness! Just wish there was something that really worked that didn't knock you out.

                              A friend & I are planning a trip. She hates Small World, I enjoy it. She said she'll go on IASW if I'll go on ST. I told her ST makes me hurl, she said IASW does the same thing to her. LOL.

                              And, Wild Ol' Dan, please don't give up Dumbo. Remember, we're all kids at Disneyland. No one is going to look at you twice for riding something you love. My friend & I are planning on riding all the FL rides, since she's only been to DL 3 times and has never ridden any of them (long story!) and neither of us is a spring chicken, either!

                                Indy -- it's just too rough. Actually, I think I like the queue better than the ride itself! In fact, sometimes I find myself wishing that the line were more slow-moving, in order to soak in more of the atmosphere.

                                And though I haven't yet been on the "new and improved" Matterhorn, I'm afraid it's off my list -- at least until they re-do it again (please!). Used to be one of my very favorites. So sad that it's been ruined.

                                  Nemo. The ride is not even worth the wait.

                                      Star Tours tends to make me a little sick so now that I'm old I avoid it. I tried it once after it reopened, but I closed my eyes almost the whole time. I end up avoiding Splash Mountain too because I don't feel like walking around soggy for an hour after. Lately I've been avoiding Toy Story Mania just because the line always seems so long.
