    No and Yes. I'm always a little scared to ride a rollercoaster, but it never stopped me.

    I'm not a fan of being dropped however I AM certainly planning on using my EE invitiation while I'm there next weekend and ALSO Tower of Terror - which I haven't brought myself to do yet. Right now its easy to say, "oh yeah, I'm going to do it, no problem" - ask me again when I'm standing in front of the ride.

    I used to be scared silly of coasters and drop towers. it was never the speed that bothered me though. You could run me as fast as you wanted, turn me as sharp as you could, twist me and turn me upside down (i always wanted to be a fighter pilot, so that kind of thing never bothered me)... but falling scared me silly!

    My youngest brother however, was a daredevil. I think it was because he was the youngest of the three of us boys and felt as though he had to prove himself to be big and brave or something, so he of course wanted to ride anything and everything. Well, seeing as my mom doesn't like heights (she will do some coaster type attractions, as long as they don't look very high... but drop towers... forget it), my dad doesn't do coasters (although with the way he drives, you'd think him a big fan of them... btw, you didn't hear that from me), and my middle brother is the biggest chicken you ever did see. he wont ride anything. he complains of "dizziness" on a carousel!!! So that of course left me to take my youngest brother on everything he wanted to go on. Soon enough he had me doing enough coasters and drop towers that I soon forgot my fear of falling, and now I can't get enough of them.
    Thrill rides still get me a little nervous, but no longer in an "omg i might DIE" kind of way, and more in a "i'm going to feel like i left my stomach at the top of this thing... this is going to be so cool!" way instead. It's an adrenalin rush, especially when doing something new. So I'm really amped about Everest tomorrow. I admit I'll be fairly nervous, but it's a good, anxious, excited nervous... and I can't wait!

    (Oh, and about ToT... the drop isn't all that bad really. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting anyway, and certainly not as bad as a few other towers I've ridden. You don't fall the entire height of the hotel, but only a portion of it. what makes it creepy is that you don't know how many times you are going to go up and down. It's a totally random, luck of the draw kind of thing. but the theming is awesome, and the special effects are like something out of... the twilight zone. Everyone should be made to ride it at least once!)

    I'm a nervous wreck when it comes to roller coasters. I cried before I got on Rock 'n' Roller Coaster for the first time. Granted, I felt sick anyway, but still... I ended up loving it though. I don't know when I'll go on it again though. My nerves in line are pretty bad.

    I've only been on Tower of Terror once. I was nine. I sat between my dad and my older sister, who was fourteen at the time. I was brave. I mean, of course I screamed. And had the worst case of butterflies ever, but it was fun. It was kind of annoying, though. My sister was reaching over for my dad's hand the whole time. he thought it was me until we saw the picture! I think I was braver then than I am now. I don't think I'll be riding again.

    I always get nervous before Splash Mountain. I don't even know why. it's not even that scary. Well, it is. I like to go on when there are short lines, so I have less time to think about it.

    And honestly, I have never been on Space Mountain!!! What is wrong with me????

    Thanks, buccool!

    I can't see my self ever even trying to attempt Summit Plummit. ah. No. I don't think so.

    I'm a little scared for EE, but I'll give it a whirl. If I lived through ToT, I can live through this!

    Yeah I have never really like roller coasters either.& I can pinpoint the even which caused my fear. Does anyone know much about the Knotts berry farm theme park? Well there was a ride there called Montezuma's Revenge and i went there with my day camp when I was 6 years old and i didn't think twice about going on it so I just went....BIG MISTAKE . 11 years later and I am so afraid of rollercoasters. I have been on space mountain and Splash mountain ONCE! Thunder Mt Railroad doesnt bother me though....heck Im even too chicken to go on goofy's barnstormer .....BUT I plan on going on it anyways when I go to WDW this summer, just for my little sister because shes only 5 and she sees rides @ Magic Mountain and wants to go on. YIKES!

    sorry for the long comment haha.
