    Originally, I would have said no but, the last time we rode it, a girl of about 10 years old sitting in front of us was reduced to tears at the Alien section.

    I'd say its pretty intense - I don't really rate it as a ride I'm afraid - how old are the kids?

    Hmm yes the Alien scene is quite intense and when my two were younger they didn't like the gun fighting bit - it's quite jumpy and loud. :p015:

    I've never really thought of the GMR as scary... But I guess it all depends on the kid. What we did with Jack the first few times, was to cover his ears during the Alien part. Now he's fine with it. And at 4, it's one of his favorite rides..

    Nor me, but I think my children were over 10 when they first went on it. It is very noisy in parts and the Alien part makes people jump.

    I love this ride, never miss it.

    Nephew Harry was just under 3 when we went on it. We covered his eyes through the Alien bit and he was mostly fine otherwise. He wasn't too enamoured by the gunfire but it was declared "not too gairy".
