I have to agree with this. Used to love it, but too uncomfortable now. Sure wish those bobsleds were smooth like the Space Mountain cars.

Poor Mickey's Wheel of Death gets no love. :P I loved the swinging cars but I have a balance disorder so the swinging felt kinda normal to me.

Count me with the Matterhorn dislikers. I got tricked into riding it at 5 and told my parents I'd never forgive them for it. Finally rode it again this past Halloween and STILL didn't like it. That was the bumpiest ride ever.

Autopia - too fume-y, boring, and I always feel like the vast amount of space it takes up could be put to better use. And also I have always had to wait for ages to get on it, and then feel like it was time wasted.

In terms of boredom: Heimlich's Chew Chew Train (Even the CMs running it acknowledge that it's just about the most boring thing in the park.)

In terms of unpleasantness: Grizzly River Run (I just don't like getting wet if I don't have to.) Autopia isn't high on my list either (The wait always seems to be longer than it looks, and the cars can be literally painful to drive, but my GF enjoys the opportunity to drive as badly as possible.)

In terms of "There's no way in heck you're getting me on that thing": The swinging cars on Mickey's Fun Wheel (although I have no problem with the fixed ones.) The Maliboomer would probably count too if it was still around.

Nemo (boring & claustrophobic), the teacups (make me sooo nauseous) & the swings (wether they want to call it the orange stinger or Silly Symphony, it's all the same level of scary to me!).

Here right now. Have to say World of Color holiday is terrible. So boring!!! 30 minute ad for Frozen with that horribly annoying snowman, songs we have never heard, slow boring songs, and very few real Disney characters are featured. Not many water and light effects. Only highlight was the Toy Story part. Long time Disney world Guest and former cast member here. I have seen tons of shows over the years and liked most of them. But World of Color holiday is by far the worst.

I have to agree with that Giant Horrid Wheel! The first time my family and I went on it, we didn't know the cars moved. My look on my husbands face was priceless but we honestly both felt like we were going straight into the water.

I love Ferris Wheels but my husband doesn't. He said if he was going to be scared, then I needed to be too. I could not understand how there was no safety bar!!!! I just kept picturing the car tipping over and flying into the water. lol

Other than the Bugs Life rides, which are the only rides I've never gone on (because why? I don't have kids yet...), I would have to say the teacups. I don't get motion sickness very easily, but my stomach just can't handle those things.

I always see so much hate for Sky School but I LOVE that ride. That first drop - love!! And I love the Matterhorn. Love. Yes, it is jerky, but I've learned how to brace myself, and it works for me.

I am pretty scared of Mickey's Wheel of Terror, as I call it, but I can do it, and it's not my least favorite.

Innoventions, and since Innoventions doesn't even count as a ride , Star Tours...used to be one of my favorites, but now is unrideable for me due to the new 3-D effects making me sick. Like, motion sick to the point of vomiting the first time I rode it & the second time I rode it (I gave it another chance & still...no. )

In DCA...Mickey's Vomit Wheel. No explanation needed.

When you do go to A Bug's Land, don't ride Flik's Flyers. They will make you 10 times more nauseous than the teacups.

Autopia and Astro Orbiters.

Also, I think that Dumbo is highly overrated and not worth the wait. /hide

Mine would have to be Mickey's Wheel of Terror and the Silly Swings......something about these two and the heights just does not work for me.
