  • Am I a wuss

    ao I have ridden everything at DCA except the symphony swings. They freak me out. I am determined to th this year. Anyone else have a ride they refuse to go on?

    I won't ride that either, not because it freaks me out. As I got older I just couldn't handle spinning too fast, gives me a headache and nausea Conversely I hated roller coasters as a kid, those scared the hell out of me, but now I'm fine with them. The ride i won't do again, because it freaked me out, is the swinging gondolas on Mickey's Wheel.

      The other half is like you. He will ride anything but the swings and the fun wheel. I finally convinced him to try out the swings and I'm not gonna lie, it wasn't a good experience for him. I won't get into details but I won't convince him to get on anything he doesn't want to after that.

      I've tried every ride at least once and there are a couple I won't ride again... namely Astro Orbitor, fun wheel and the subs.

        Lol aw, well what part freaks you out? Flying above the water? I actually get a little paranoid on the Fun Wheel for that reason... if it were to collapse into the lagoon

          There's so many real fears that may actually happen, crime, car accidents, war, cancer, that I have learned to just ride any old ride I can. If I die that way, so be it. Could be worse.

            Haha sort of morbid but I guess dying at Disneyland is better than some other possibilities......

              i don't like that ride at all, makes me sick. its not a bad thing if you don't go on it. there's no law about going on every single ride. people have their favorite and least favorite rides.

                You asked, are you a wuss...
                My answer is YASS!! but that's ok. We all have our moments. Wana know what freaks me out? The horse drawn surrey on Main Street. I will move waaay far to the left or right to let that beast thru. Im sure their team of horses are the happiest and friendliest on earth, but I wont ride it.

                  The important thing is to just do whats right for you. Dont worry about anything else. As long as you have fun it's fine. I have a family member who even since i was a kid only goes on the carousel, pirates, HM. and the Fantasy land rides. They also have a great time and enjoy just walking around the parks.

                    Personally, the only rides I refuse to go on are the ones that my health won't allow, like California Screaming. There's also some I won't wait in line for, just because I don't like them. However, are you a wuss? Absolutely not! This is a simple amusement park ride. Nothing more. If you don't want to go on for ANY REASON, that's your business and nobody else's. You have your own reasons, and that's all that matters. Unless it's something you really want to go on, but your fear is stopping you, don't worry about it. And even then, who cares?! It's just an amusement park ride.

                      I tend to avoid the swinging gondolas on Fun Wheel, so I understand your trepidation. However, I love the swings!

                        Personally I don't think there's anything special about them so I wouldn't think I was missing out by not riding. Personally I have never found them comfortable because the seats are so narrow. And I second the sentiment on the swinging gondolas - I freak out like a little girl when those move, but that's because there are no seat belts and I'm always certain it's time to pay my final debt.

                          I get anxiety picturing ferris wheels. I really cannot think of a dollar amount that would get me in one of those swinging gondolas. I'd start considering it at mid 6 figures, not a penny less. I'd probably do a stationary one for low 6 figures. And alot of peer pressure and alcohol.

                            Splash Mountain is my nemesis. I've been on it once but have not drummed up the guts to try it again. That drop looms to taunt me.
                            I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                              Silly Symphony Swings, my sister and I call them "Scary as Sh*t Swings" We will go on them, but sometimes when I'm on them I close my eyes.. Everything else in the park I will go on no problem, including sliding gondolas. Heck, I even stand up and "surf" while the gondola is mid-slide, but the swings are a whole nother animal..

                                There are certain rides that I can't do because of motion sickness so I don't go on those. But the only one that I won't do is Mickey's Wheel of Death swinging baskets.

                                Although I have a feeling I'll be on it in a week or so. My son and I are going week after next and since the trip is my gift to him I've told him I'll do whatever he wants, no questions, unless it will make me sick.

                                So if you hear loud screaming from that general direction in about 10 days, that will be me!

                                  I have a limit. I know what I can handle and what I can't. I won't touch the swings. While they look like they might be fun, I just am not into how it is. I did try Screamin once and said never EVER again. I hated it. I won't do rides like ToT. I don't like that last drop on Splash so don't go on it. Don't care for Goofy's Sky School either. Otherwise I pretty much will do the rest in the parks. I think the fact that Disney has such a nice assortment of rides that there is always going to be options for everyone that work for what their likes are with rides.

                                    I will ride the swings but they make be very dizzy so I have to plan it for when we are going to be sitting after for a while. But I will not go on the fun wheel. I have too scared of heights for that. I might do it one day but I will be white knuckling it for sure.

                                        I refuse to go on those, as well as the tea cups at Disneyland. I hate feeling dizzy!!!
