  • Confession: as a child I was deathly afraid of...

    Adventures Thru Inner Space... I used to really think I was about to be shrunken and it totally freaked me out. I also remember refusing to go on Haunted Mansion cuz I was scared of that too. Wow, I was a sissy rugrat!

    Haunted Mansion. I LOVE it now, but I wouldn't ride it until I was at least 12 years old. I don't know what I expected, but I was terrified.

      My wife still laughs at me to this day. I was deathly afraid of going on Snow White. I remember still to this day the terror that I felt on it at about 4 or 5 years old and did not go on it again untill I went to Grad night. Even to this day at 36 years old I still get butterflys when we go on it.

        I have a memory of me clinging on to the bars near the front of the haunted mansion yelling, "no no no no" because I was too afraid to go on. This was last year when I was six or so.

          Captain EO. It was the only thing I have really been afraid of and ever have been at the parks. (TOT doesn't count because I will still go on it once per trip). I was a smart kid to be afraid of that now wasn't I? It's crazy to think about that being the only thing. I mean, I was on the log flume at Knott's at 3 mo. old and Space Mountain by the time I was 2!

              So did I! I also thought the skull was HUGE.

                ^That talking skull and the first drop on POTC always freaked me out. In the Haunted Mansion, there was a combination of things that scared me: the stretching room, the attic, and the floating candle stick.

                There was also the Matterhorn, that first dark cave always had a way of scaring me.

                However, from all these things, I though Space Mountain was TERRIFYING. I never wanted to ride it. At first it was the fact that I actually thought I was in space, and the second phase was the "getting your hands chopped off rumor."

                    Adventure Through Innerspace scared me when I was younger as well. I loved going on it, but the shrinking in the microscope scared me. I also got freaked out by the big eye looking at you through the microscope towards the end.

                      The Matterhorn ... especially at night ...

                      Pirates, Mansion, InnerSpace never scared me in the least. Go figure.

                        It was the Sea Serpant at the end of the Submarine Voyage that got me, and my sister! I think the reason why I take showers instead of baths can be blamed on the Sea Serpant's googly eyes.

                          Same here. I was afraid of anything remotely dealing with ghosts and goblins, and for me to go into a HAUNTED Mansion? Forget about it! "But it's a fun ride, it's not scary" chimed my father. Uh, HELLO! Then why isn't it called the FUN Mansion? It's called the HAUNTED Mansion for a reason. I ain't falling for that story

                            When my parents dragged me onto Pirates for the first time, I freaked the hell out. I even have faint memories of this. I peed my pants while sitting on Mom's lap as we drifted past the Blue Bayou. Oh, she loves telling me this story....again and again. I can only imagine what the others in line thought of me.

                            I think I was about 17.





                            Okay, I think i was about 4.

                              When I was kindergarten, I bit my tounge so hard on POTC that it bled profusely on the first drop.

                                Ya know, the TV commercials in the 70's of the new Matterhorn refurbish (the one with the Snowman) would scare the bejezuss outta me. I'd actually run into my bedroom when it came on.

                                However, that same year, I was rarin' to go on the ride itself when we went. Mom kept asking if I was sure. I guess at seven years old, I was ready to face my fears.

                                I would LOVE to see that old Matterhorn commericial again.

                                  The lights at the beginning and end of Space Mt. ... I would close my eyes so tight during these sections until I was around 13.

                                    Ha, ha, that reminds me of something else when I was in the under-10 set... Remember those great toy antique pistols they used to sell in the POTC store? A friend of mine swore that during the ride he shot at a pirate with his toy gun and the pirate turned to him and fired back . . . sure he did! (if memory serves me right, this might be the same kid who also swore there were reindeer tracks in his front yard on xmas morn')

                                      I was 12 when I first visited Disneyland.....not much scared me, although my Dad thought it funny to rock the SkyWay which made me a little nervous.

                                      Does the "FAA approved manuever" when taking off from John Wayne count--------that still scares me

                                        What was I afraid of as a child?
                                        Pretty much every ride one could possibly be afraid of. I would go on the FantasyLand dark rides, things that didn't move, the Train (for a time I feared the Primeval World), and other rides I had no reason to fear. Over time, more and more rides opened up, until I would ride everything, but before that.. I was picky with what I rode.
