Thumbs down

In a word...NO!

I know being scared can be experienced as thrilling to some....for me it's just "will I live through this or am I going to die?", i.e. too stressful.

(I don't watch horror movies since I don't want to see grotesque images and being scared is not entertaining to me. I like a good psychological/suspense thriller though and have to admit that "Don't Look Now" was a masterpiece and only shocking at the end). Sorry wandered off a bit - train of thought.

I would definitely ride that! Griffon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg scares the tar out of me, but I ride it multiple times every time that I'm there.

No! Absolutely not.

Nope, nope and nope. I don't even do stepladders. Forget adding high-speed motion to height! No way!

No, I wouldn't. I don't enjoy roller coasters as much as when I was younger. I find them very uncomfortable now. Don't enjoy rolling down a hill anymore either. It didn't used to make me too dizzy.

That tilty bit makes an extra place where the roller coaster could fail.
