Tower of Terror Question

Do a lot of people throw up on Tower of Terror? If they do, does it land all over everybody?

It's never happened to me, nor have I heard any reports of it occurring. I imagine more people feel sick after getting off than during the ride itself.

No, usually people throw up after the ride has finished, in the small photo corridor.

I've never seen anyone throw up on ToT, nor have I ever heard of it happening.

I am sure it has happened, but not often.

TOT is one of my favorite rides, I ride it at least 3 or 4 times each day I am in DHS. I have never seen or heard anyone throwing up on the ride or in the attraction at all.
I have heard a lot of screaming and crying, no throwing up.

I have motion sickness. I got nauseous from Everest and that lasted a long time. I hated TOT but it did not make me feel like throwing up. I think you will be fine. Try it once.

I hate scarry rides and tried it and it was really scarry but I was just shaking not throwing up. I think there is too much going on for it to make you do that.

Typically, rides that spin, especially over extended periods of time, cause nausea and vomiting..


Mission space, teacups, primeval whirl, and even the helixes on expedition everest

Tower, while thrilling, is generally too short and not "spinny" enough to make the average guest vomit

I have rode ToT many many times and have never seen anyone even complain about being sick. I did however see a very large man start the ride saying "Oh sweet jesus", and by the time it was over, he was saying "Oh s**t", it was quite comically. But no upchucking. I love it, its one of my favorites.

I've never seen anyone puke ON a ride, but darn near. The first time I ever rode Mission Space one lady just barely made it off the ride. She powered walked out of the exit and by the time I got out of there I saw her with her head in the garbage can.
