I guess I'm the only one who won't ride Big Thunder now? Haha. No, I've never really been very fond of that ride - I'd rather do the Haunted Mansion or Indy another time than go on Big Thunder... I guess the accidents just gave me more of a reason to skip that ride....
I felt a little queasy when I rode the firsat time after the tragedy. But after launching I felt fine and let things go. My friends and I always sit in the last car so one just hopes another train won't.. well, you know.
I feel a little safer though. It's a lot smoother as well.
I just don't like it when other guests shriek at the top of their lungs, "We're all gonna die!"
Call me vainly serious, but I find that offensive. :\
Well, I definetely feel more comfortable that I'm not the only one that winces through those dark tunnels! I have such an overactive imagination that I simply imagine the worst possible scenario happening. Now, even on Matterhorn, I hear some screaching on the track and I think the train is going to tip on those sharp turns and out tumbles Cuzco, rolling down the mountain. Sheesh I'm a nut!
Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"
I can't even look at that red rock monstrosity without having to change my pants. Think about the amount of times that train has run those rails...millions. How many accidents have there been? Two? Well what if I am the next 2 in a few million to get injured? The chances of that are far to great for me to ever get back in line. The wildest ride in the wilderness is no joke.
on the other hand, has a couple of spots where, if you're really tall, you get the feeling as if you'd better duck before you get smacked in the head by a rib or something.
- I feel this way on Space Mountain!
But no, I don't have any qualms about riding it - it is one of my favorite rides in the park, especially after dark. I'm much more comfortable about the saftey of the park in general with Matt running the show...
The way I look at it I'm much more likely to get squished on the trip to the park than injured on any of the rides including BTMR.
eh, i don't have any worries about riding BTMRR. I dunno, I think I probably thought about it for like a couple of seconds and then I got over it and rode and was happy. I always sit in the very back and enjoy riding over and over again
