    The EVIL...EVIL....evil SunWheel

    Am i the only one who finds this MACHINE terrifying?
    I've only been on it twice, and both times were enough to traumatize me for life. I find that I am the only one that screams & clings on for dear life when im on this thing.
    The first time i rode it i actually got under the seat & screamed till it was over...... which my friends found quite amusing. It is by far the scariest ride i have ever been on....and i've tackled the biggest of rollercoasters.

    Even standing in line....i hear no screams. Is it just me?

    hahahaha I love to take unsuspecting guests aboard the Sun Wheel! I was like 10 when I went on it for the first time with my mom and sister... yikes. Then I took my friends, telling them "it's just a ferris wheel" mwahahahahha!!!! I love it.
    I am a rabid Disney fan. Possible future Imagineer (already designing rides for it)... I've only been to Disneyland. I'm hoping to go to Disney World this summer for the first time, and TDR might be possible in 3 years.

    Re: The EVIL...EVIL....evil SunWheel

    You had me laughing at my desk!! I've seen people get really scared of it. I saw them stop it to let 3 girls off of it one time. They just wanted to make a scene though.
    I've taken my 1 and 3 year old and my little one fell asleep while my 3 year old didn't care because she could see High School Musical playing.

    Speaking of ferris wheels, did anyone hear about the 5 people that died in South Korea on one? The cart flipped around and they fell out. There were 7 in there but 2 held on. All one family too. So sad!

    I've done the swinging gondolas once and that was enough, I too was clinging on for dear life and Wolfette just laughed at me the whole time! Never again!

    As for the stationary ones.....no problem.
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    I don't get sick on rides but those swinging gondolas had my begging for it to end. That being said, I can't wait to go again!!

    Aw the swinging gondolas are so fun! I've always liked them.

    Last week a friend of mine was freaking out way too much on it.. I think just trying to make a scene. She was screaming bloody murder, ARG. Got old fast, haha. The only thing now is that I can't handle the swinging as much. I started getting dizzy the second time around and kept thinking about getting off.

    Also have they always had those barf bags inside the gondolas? lol. I just noticed one last week while on the ride and couldn't remember seeing them before.

    Nope, they added them about a year ago. I remember Darkbeer's first pictures of them, hilarious.

    Ah, thought so. Thanks.

    Yeah I thought it was pretty funny when I first noticed the barf bag and laughed about it for awhile. I figured someone has gotten sick maybe once or twice. That would suck..

    I'd call it the vomit wheel but it scared a different bodily item from me. I'd go on it again, but only with people that are scared too.
