You can drop me, jerk me, flip me around on any ride & it's all good, but make me face down dinosaur's & I freak out. I do admit though that drop, water rides are my least favorite.
You did see the huge T Rex before the drop, right and the spitters on the way up the lift?

Oh, I liked Dudley more than JP. I hate the drops, but the Dudley one was just funny seeing the building at the bottom of the drop. And you can hold on the side rails, and put your feet on the side. My kids laugh at me. They are the one's with their hands up. Dudley's a ride I only do once too.

I don't feel like I'm gonna die on any flume ride. I am not a drop fan wet or dry. Lucky my kids didn't get that gene. They are ride junkies.

And Metro, I did NOT want to know the height or how veritical it was. All I heard was we're not gonna make it, the T-Rex staring at us, then we hang for a few seconds before the drop. I was like hurry up already. It does make a really big splash, even when it was only myself and my 2 kids in the boat.

Ha, yeah I saw it. I'm holding on to the hope that it's not the same feeling as Dinosaur that they are chasing me down. Like I said before, it will probably all depend on what kind of mood I'm in that day. My DH & kids don't get my "mood thing". Sometimes I'm in the mood & sometimes I'm not , even on rides I have rode many times.

I know these posts are a couple weeks old but I had to comment...

I totally think I'm gonna die on ToT. I usually only ride it so my mom doesn't have to go alone.

I used to think I was gonna die on Dinosaur (and I am a huge dinosaur fan, but I hated that ride). I decided last fall I was gonna be an adult and just do it again because I love dinosaurs and it's ridiculous not to ride it. I requested to be in the middle of the back row and it was MUCH, MUCH better. I wasn't scared like I had been the other 2 times I rode it and the jerking/dark wasn't as bad to me.

JP doesn't bother me at all. I loved it!
