      Obviously the forceful way has worked in the past, just do it again!
      Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
      it's what they are like in their HEART!

        Then you have to ask yourself, what if she does not like it and you forced her to go on it. Which is more valuable, your fun or her?

          it backfired on me- I forced my hubby on soarin' and maliboomer and he HATED them both (he is afraid of heights). Six Flags was even worse! (I thought he was going to leave me after Goliath!)

          So maybe don't take my advice............

            if your fun is more valuable, maybe its time to find a new girlfriend

              Ya, I'm trying to take my younger sister to go on TOT. Her argument is, "it's called tower of TERROR! They don't call it that for nothing!". If you find a good way to take your girfriend without resorting to dragging, blindfolding, or drugging, please let me know.
              Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
              Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
              Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
              Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
              Marge: Pink.
              Homer: D'oh!
              Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

                I did not want to go on it when it opened ... my BF said he would not go on ToT without me ... I knew he really really really wanted to go and I did not want to let him down ...

                So I just told myself that I am not going to die and it would make my BF happy ... I knew that there was going to be more than one drop, which helped decrease my fear of the unknown ...

                I was so scared, my hands were dripping wet and my face was pale and I felt like throwing up ... I squeezed my BF hand so tight throughout the whole ride ... needless to say we ended up riding 5 times in a row and at least go 3-5 time on every visit ...

                Your GF can always wait in line with you then if she wants to go on she can and if she doesn't she can sit on the bench in the exit hall way ... when I went on the mysteries, myths and legends tour one part of a couple did this ... the guy did not want to go on with his GF and sat out.

                  Maybe have her watch a ride video of it?
                  Or just go by yourself?
                  When I'm waiting for my friends, I have fun watching the pictures of the people on the ride up on the screens.
                  But I think I might try it when I go in April!
                  Good morning, son

                  Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                  And I can tell you 'bout today
                  And how I picked you up and everything changed
                  It was pain
                  Sunny days and rain
                  I knew you'd feel the same things...

                    Where can you get a ride video of it?

                          You need to use the build-up method most parents apply ,little steps to start before you run. Start with something not boring but not outrageous,if in DCA try Soarin, its a bit wild, has some hieght but has a queue and an outside view that are not too impossing. if all goes well there move up to California Screaming to get the adreniline going maybe even do the maliboomer,after that she may ask YOU to take the plunge on the tower.But whatever you do-and this goes for anyone you take-NEVER say you HAVE to ride this.All that does is cement the resistence to the ride and make it an angry point instead of a fun one.If she still refuses to ride take the advice above and politley ask if she wouldnt mind waiting with you in line til you got to ride,she may change here mind before she takes the "chicken exit" and waits til you are done.

                            Just use the "If you love me you will" line. That worked as teenagers...

                              www.remainseated.com has a ride video of TotT and other disney rides- the quality is pretty good and I think it would give her a fairly good idea of what to expect- they can be downloaded and watched on your computer.

                                  Pull out the "You know I'd never let anything bad happen to you" line and just comfort her letting her know that its just a ride and she'll most likely enjoy it once its all over.

                                    1. Dump her. This will be an issue forever, and it's her way of controlling your happiness. Weight this issue against the benefits you may or may not be receiving. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more, say no more.
                                    2. Leave her at a bench outside the ride.
                                    3. Have her come with you until the final chicken exit. At least you're with her until you die (maybe -- who knows?) in........(dramatic pause)....The Twilight Zone (dramatic music). And she'll get to see the story in the queue.

                                      If she doesn't want to go on...so be it. I don't understand how forcing someone to do something they don't want to do would enhance your own experience. I'm terrified of heights and will not/can not go on the Maliboomer. My girldfriend loves it. She goes on. I watch. We're both happy. I go to the park to have fun. There's a big difference between stimulating excitement and abject fear.

                                        *OK, confession time* :o

                                        Me, being a big, tough, manly, macho man..... I still get butterflies on that ride. And I LOVE it!!!!

                                        I think the ride video is a good idea. Otherwise, just be honest. Cop to the fact that it's an intense ride, but people generally have a really great time on it.

                                        In fact, I have yet to actually see anyone come out of it not smiling and happy!
