Ok so I've been thinking this morning about certain rides I've been on which literally scare the crap outta me, even as a 26 year old male!
I wanted to share a few of my thoughts and more importantly find out if I'm not the only fully grown adult who still shuts his eyes and holds on for dear life when coming face to face with a giant spider!
I've added a few examples below of rides over the years which have literally made my pants turn from white to dark brown-
1. The Haunted House, Alton Towers- This is my first memory of anything scaring me so bad I had my head between my legs the whole time! I seem to recall the brick wall looking like it was going to fall on you, going round a corner and some giant demon like monster jumping out from above? That was it for me, eyes shut, head down the rest of the way round! Thank god for Duel, now I can keep my eyes open for at least 75% of the time!
2. Terror Tomb, Chessington- Again from an early age, when this first opened I loved it! Reminded me of Indiana Jones. However, the one gripe I had was that wolf like creature rattling the s**t out of a cage to the right of you. Caught me completely off guard and safe to say I never looked in that direction again!
3. Creepy Castle Spookslot, Efteling- For the simple fact that I was very young, dragged on by my parents and you have to walk through the whole thing. It was bloody horrible!
4. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, I.O.A- Now this is the most recent, May 2012 to be exact. I honestly thought me being a pansy was in the past, however this ride soon changed that. How in the hell can this be marketed to kids? Sweet Jesus, the face to face encounter with a full size dragon shocked me a tad, but the face to face meeting with Aragog really freaked me out. So much so that I timed it just right each time I went on to shut my eyes for the whole 'spider scene' of the ride. Dementors? Womping Willow? Dragon? How could any child come off this without mental scar's!
So, if anyone else would like to share there thoughts on other rides which scare the hell outta them, feel free to comment!
