PTR May 2010 - An Aussie's Journey - I've done ToT for real, now for WDW version #12

A few years ago, when I was working at the Rialto Tower (see #3), I was very fortunate to step into a lift that did it's own version of ToT for real. There were about 3 of us in the lift at the time, no seats and most definitely no seat belts.

I think we fell about 6 floors before the safety brakes took hold. I remember that the brakes took about 5 seconds to stop; so we weren't tossed around like salad leaves. But it was still jerky enough for me to lurch about and bump into the guy next to me. The lift stopped at a floor that none of us requested and the doors opened. We all laughed nervously when we stopped and immediately got out.

Ever since then, I haven't had the nerve to try out ToT. I've had one trip to the WDW and about 3 trips to DL since and I still haven't yet faced up to ToT.

I realise that 6 floors is no where near the thrill of ToT; but I am determined to go do this ride this time and am psyching myself up to the experience. And I'm looking for tips as to how best to enjoy ToT!!
