    Re: Anyone else Tricked to getting on a ride then sorry

    One time my roommate and I were at Epcot and I suggested riding Spaceship Earth. We were on the college program and this was his first time ever in Disney World and he loved fast rides. So he kept asking me if Spaceship Earth was fast and I kept sayinig it was the fastest ride throughout Walt Disney World while we kept passing all of these signs that say, Spaceship Earth is a Slow moving attraction. Well, he got on and was extremely confused for the first minute or two and now it's actually one of his favorite attractions.

    I had it happen to me a few years ago in Universal Studios Hollywood. I was told that the "Revenge of the Mummy" ride was tame and that it WASN'T anything like a roller coaster. I was surprised to say the least. I was told to ride the Tower of Terror...so I did on Monday. I screamed the whole ride and started to scream for Jesus! But, I would do it again just because...

    My cousin tricked my mom into going on a ride at Universal. After we finally got her calmed down and her blood pressure back to normal we had to hold her back from killing him! After that incidence there is no tricking in my family. I even have to test out all the rides before she will go on them!

    Re: Anyone else Tricked to getting on a ride then sorry

    I hate roller coasters. But not wanting to feel left out and constant nagging from my wife and daughters (they tell me what to expect on the ride) I try to ride. I always get the " OK I forgot, theres a big drop up here that won't last too long " bit.
    I do ride alot now but still get very nervous when I first get on it. It took at least 4 times to finally get on EE and I love it. Space Mountain , Thunder Mountain are no problem. Still haven't got on RNR yet and won't ride TOT because I don't like to drop. Exception is Splash Mountain, what a blast.
    Oh yeah..The Mummy is bad to the bone. The effects are awesome. I rode it twice a couple weeks ago.

    My first roller coaster I ever went on I got tricked to go on by my uncle. No I'm a roller coaster fanatic. Maybe this is the start for you J&J

    Re: Anyone else Tricked to getting on a ride then sorry

    When i was in the 4th grade my sister and uncle told me that ROR wasn't really that bad. They said that it wasnt fast and u cudn't tell when u were upside down. Well i went on, and got off practically in tears. I went on again in the 6th grade though and loved it, i guess i just wasnt ready to handle it when i was 9

    I ride everything. I'm a big roller coaster fanatic and I've ridden drop towers that make ToT look like a kiddie ride.

    The biggest "trick" at WDW doesn't involve a ride - but rather getting people to drink the Beverly at Club Cool in Epcot. After all, its just a soda from the Coca-Cola company - how bad could it be?

    Have camera ready.

    Re: Anyone else Tricked to getting on a ride then sorry

    Some friends of ours went to Universal Studios last year on a big family outing. My buddy talked his wife into going on the Mummy and told her it didn't drop and wasn't fast. She absolutely hates rollercoasters and won't ride log rides.They have the picture from the ride were she is literally beating him with her fist. Its all in fun but he said he wouldn't do that again because other people on the ride was cracking up because she kept beating him and yelling "You Lied" !!!

    I took my grandma (who rides things like Winnie the Pooh and says she can't handle anything more extreme than THAT) on Space Mountain when i was 7 and I kept telling her that it was no big deal. She sat in the front row seat right in front of me and the whole time she was screaming YOU LIED TO ME!!!!!!! I laughed the whole time and still laugh at that today!
    I hope we never lose sight of one thing,
    that it was all started by a mouse.

    Only at Six Flags when I was a little girl. My own father told me that the barrel ride where you spin and the floor drops out that this would be so much fun because it's just like what the astronauts experience on takeoff.

    OMG that was awful. The only thing nearly as bad at Disney is Mission:Space the Orange side. Even on Dramamine, I felt like I might die on there, literally. Most unpleasant experience I've ever had at Disney.

    We tricked my then 6 year old daughter into getting on Splash Mountain. We let her watch the ride on Youtube and told her there was only one small drop. She sat with my mom right in front of my wife and I. Once she heard the people screaming and saw daylight at the end of the tunnel she started yelling at us. Funny part is she still has a hard time saying her "r's" right so she was yelling "You pwomised! You pwomised!" I felt bad but it was funny! Now she wants to ride it again!

    I don't get it.There are a lot of gullible people out there,but come on,the name itself let's you know that it is no "baby" ride.Come on,Tower of Terror? You've got to be kidding that you didn't know anything at all about ToT!Someone didn't do their "Disney-Homework",before going to WDW!
