From all of the Florida theme parks, what is your favourite coaster and why? Did you buy the photo?
definatley duelling dragons as it pulls the most g forces and is a great ride, then rock n roller for the sheer exhilleration off the start, then the kraken for the first drop then the hulk, coz i just like it
I think Everest because the theming is great and it feels different from any other coaster and it was more exhilarating than I thought it was going to be, then Rock n Roller Coaster for the theming, the music and the start
I do like Duelling Dragons, Kraken the Hulk etc all great coasters but lack in the theming dept for me.
The Hulk is awesome! That is just an awesome ride.
The only photo we've bought is RNR but we had the whole car with people we knew
After 4 visits and lots of times threatening to ride the Hulk but chickening out, I finally rode it in 2006. It was the best! I dont know why I was so afraid for years. I also like Kraken but hate RnR - I am a mess when I come off that.
I get really sick on coasters so I usually end up minding the bags while the others go on and do a bit of people watching. One year DS pleaded with me to go on Kraken with him and I must have been suffering from sun stroke because I agreed. I was great going up the first ramp and loved the view from the top but the minute we started downhill I realised what a mistake it was I spent the entire time with my eyes firmly shut praying for it to be over, when I got off I felt so I couldn't even speak to anyone for about half an hour and had to sit right outside the restrooms "just in case"
I did try Everest when it first opened but I got off feeling really sick so needless to say I've never been on a coaster again and am quite happy to mind the bags
Awww! Tink2, that's terrible!
My favorite coaster is Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Well. It is.
I don't mind because you see some great things when you're waiting for the others to get back
I'm so bad that I even felt rough on Goofy's Barnstorming Rollercoaster
I have a brilliant pic from RnR Coaster thats got me and 2 of my 'cyber friends' in it. Met then out in Florida and am now such good friends with them both, esp Sam and her hubby who i see when they are over (they live in the scottish isles) and of course, their gorgeous baby girl now
I thought Goofy's Barnstormer was a pretty fast (and kind of rough) coaster for little kids!
You must be very sensitive to motion. Do you get ill on long car trips or boat rides?
I've been told that Goofy's Barnstormer is actually faster than Space Mountain. SM just seems fast cause it's in the dark.
I like Big thunder mountain railroad too 015:. I have to ride the coasters on my own as DH doesnt enjoy coasters.
I didnt enjoy space mountain as I had a bit of motion sickness. Has anyone had motion sickness on this ride ?
Goofy's Barnstormer! l love it! And so do the DGD's!
Not saying it's MY favorite...it's the DGD's favorite!
When I took Max (6 at the time) on it, he smacked his head on the car on one of the corners. I wasn't impressed. The second time on it (yep, he loved it) I put my arm around him and sure enough, his head nearly smacked the car in the same spot.
So, careful of the little ones!
I don't suffer from car sickness but do take something on the plane. As for boat sickness....... ask me when I get back from my first Disney cruise
I bet you'll be just fine. I am. I can't do crazy rides, but I can cruise. I took a dramamine once on my first cruise (first day/night) and didn't need one thereafter.
No problems in the car either. I can have problems on the train though. That sideways rocking motion isn't something my likes too well, apparently!
