I have a metal rod screwed to my spine, so I have to be careful of what I go on, but I sure don't let it stop me. I send DH on first to see how rough or jerky it is. I love Rock n Roller coaster.....because I can't see what it looks like.

Mickey's Fun Wheel at DCA. You could not pay me enough to get into one of those swinging gondolas.

Agreed.
I went on the stationary ones ONCE. That was enough. Horrible.

....me too, but with POTC.....and our boat was only about 3 feet from the exit platform....sheer torture! However, the anytime/anywhere fastpasses that we got as we finally exited the ride fully made up for it!

Mission Space for sure - even the team green one is too claustraphobic for me! Won't do RNRC or California Screamin anymore because I'm afraid I'll get stuck with the harness around my neck. I am prone to panic attacks and it's just best that I avoid!

I also generally avoid Star Tours. The movie never quite syncs to the movement and I get sick.

Oh, and the subs! It's boring anyway, but whoo I don't want to imagine me stuck in the subs! I realize you aren't really underwater, but all those people in an enclosed space is just too muchl

I don't ride anything that goes upside down, first of all. So if I am anywhere other than Disney, that means NO to almost any coaster.

At WDW, I don't ride Tower of Terror (I don't consider "being dropped from high places multiple and random times" to be a form of entertainment), Rock-n-Roller Coaster, Stitch's Great Escape (too dumb to waste park time on), anything in the Hester and Chester area of Animal Kingdom (same reason as Stitch), or Mission Space.

I don't ride roller coasters (extreme anxiety about them) and I cannot ride spinning rides that go around and around. I can ride Dumbo but I still get a tad sick feeling.

Disney has a pretty good mix of rides for me to ride unlike our local amusement park which seems to be all thrill rides.

We did both Mission Space rides on our last trip, and I probably won't do those again - too claustrophobic. I like Star Tours though. I can do without the Tea Cups, and I don't like elevators, so TOT is a one time been there, done that ride for me

I love Rock N Rollercoaster at WDW and the Hulk at IOA but haven't tried the Rip Ride Rockit. For those who have done that one, how does it compare to others?

Yep, this and Space Mountain. Otherwise I rode all the rest and survived. Oh wait, add Tower of Terror to that list too.

I didn't think I could ever do this years ago, but Rock-n-Roller coaster is just THAT SMOOTH at that point you don't even notice it.

I agree. It's a lot smoother than Space Mountain. My niece was a little nervous about it, but it's such a fast ride that she didn't have time to get scared and loved it.

Anything that spins around more than one axis at a time is right out. I don't want to have to apologize to the people in the splash area.

I will not be riding Space Mountain again. Not when I can get the same result by rolling down a hill in a barrel while I stick my finger down my throat.

I also will NOT do IASW again. Mrs. Tex insisted that I had to do it once (she was remembering her day at DLR long, long ago, before we met). I've done it once. It was like having Cthulhu serve you big bowls of marshmallow cream heaped with sugar.
