So! This year I will be graduating middle school and I'm excited. It's a tradition in my school to go to Six Flags each year. Unfortunately, I've never been a fan of roller coasters, especially their drops. It's the only thing I'm always nervous about when I go to Disneyland or Disneyworld. I have several questions, so I bolded them to make it easier to find them.
First things first, are people under 18 allowed to wander around the park by themselves? I don't want to bring my group of friends down if they all want to go to a certain ride except me. I looked at the Discovery Kingdom website and I looked for tame thrill rides. I'm thinking of riding the Cobra, since it seems to be the tamest of the roller coasters. Two rides piqued my interest, though, the Ark and Monsoon Falls. I was wondering, is the Ark a scary ride? Does it feel like you're dropping? I find the ride to look very interesting, but I don't want to go on a ride and regret it. Also, I've been on Splash Mountain once in my life, and I went to the one in Disneyland. Since I went to the ride two years ago, I've dreaded the feeling of dropping, and I was wondering, is Monsoon Falls less tame than Splash Mountain? How tame is it? I heard that it's 60 ft, compared to Splash Mountain which is 50 ft. However, from what I'm seeing, it looks steeper, therefore the feeling of dropping is shorter.
I know this is an awkward thread, but it's been bugging me since the beginning of the year. I'm deathly afraid of roller coasters, but I want to somehow conquer it step by step. What are the tamest thrill rides in Discovery Kingdom? I want to take "baby steps" into conquering my fear. As I said before in my post, I'm also going to Disneyland with my school this summer. I've been going to Disneyland almost every year of my life, and I want this year to be a year to remember. I want it to be a year where I'm more comfortable to go on rides.
Thanks for your help!
