Ever have an attraction/ride scare/terrify you?
I've got a good one.
Went to AK for the first time. We went at opening, and the CM's were holding these clear big boxes, with certain species of animals for people to look at.
I saw a glimpse of one from a few feet away and I practically RAN. You see, I'm a SEVERE SEVERE SEVERE arachnophobe, and there was a HUGE tarantula in the box. It shivers to make me think of it. I walked FAR away, and my BF and kids went to go look. He even videotaped it. So we walked on.
Later on we went into A Bug's Life. The show was fine, until this HUGE 3D TARANTULA comes onto the screen ... yeah it was animated, but to an arachnophobe, that doesn't help. I'm in a packed theatre, that THING is on the screen, so I scream and shut my eyes. As if THAT wasn't bad enough, the thing arches its back, and shoots its "spikes" at the audience (it was air blown at us, but try telling that to someone with a serious phobia!!). I start freaking out. Then you have the bugs that "crawl under" your butt in your seat. In the hysteria I was in THAT did not make it any better.. then to top it off, you have the rubber spiders that drop from the ceiling. I'm shocked I didn't have cardiac arrest! I was hyperventilating really bad, and thankfully we got out soon after that. It was simply HORRIFYING.
An addendum to this terrifying nightmare; that night we're watching the video back on the TV. The one tape stops and my BF goes to put in the other one. The FIRST IMAGE on the tape is the big tarantula from that morning UP CLOSE (so on the TV it looks like it's 10 feet big). I scream and freak out (not expecting it) and my BF is apologizing like crazy...
Yeah I haven't been back to AK since.
So who else has one?
