Oh, this is embarrassing, but it was Honey I Shrunk The Audience. The bit where the mice get loose in the theater. I actually screamed and cried in terror, and I was 30 years old! For this reason, I won't even go near It's Tough To Be A Bug.

I had the same thing happen on Test Track, the ride stopped for about 5min and I was crammed in the back with two other adults. I wanted out of that car and I never had a problem with being claustrophobic before.

Mission Space? Nothing to it.
ToT? I'll ride it as long as you like
RnR? Faster, man
Space Mountain? Love it,

Astro Orbiter? Once was enough.

Yep! I never would have imagined it would be a problem but all it took was one little thought "Hmmm.. I wonder if I could get out of here if I had to?". So I wiggled a bit, realized I was completely stuck because my park bag was wedging me in under the lap bar. And I panicked. It was just the worst feeling ever. It wasn't rational, but that didn't matter.

Hilarious!

OT:

Nothing at Disney is actually scary...at least to us. We like all the rides. DD has been getting on all of them since she was 1.

Alien encounter for me too!

I also felt like I was going to fall out of astro orbiter. So, I haven't been on it since. That was 20 years ago!

I went thru a period where many rides caused me anxiety, like RnR, ToT, space, splash, & even soarin. I tried them all again & now ill go on them once with the kids. Twice was my limit on EE, my head starts hurting after twice in a row.

Alien Encounter, totally did not get that ride, but would love to have been able to terrorize my son on it.. (insert evil laugh here)

Astro Orbiter sends my anxiety level through the roof!

BUUUUUT ... I love the ride and after that first ride I've learned to relax and enjoy it!
The first time I rode it, I didn't like the first few scenes, then I kept my eyes open and loved the rest. Second time - piece of cake. Neither of those were with me being on the highest row. But the last time? Sheer terror.

I think I'd be fine on the bottom row, because it's really the height of the row of seats that bothers me, not the visuals on the screen.

I was terrified the first time I rode Tower of Terror. It's one of my favorites now.

I guess Mission Space is the scariest for me. Not because it's a scary ride but because I felt so claustrophobic I thought I was going to have a panic attack. I'll never ride it again.

I have ridden just about every attraction at WDW.

For pure terror, I will echo some PP's and say Alien Encounter. We went on that not really knowing what to expect and were horrified, but we loved it!! I miss that attraction.

For thrill "scary", I have to say on one of the rides my DD9 and I designed on Sum of all Thrills. We did 4 loops and some insane drops. We were upside down for so long, I literally thought I would fall out. I've never screamed so hard on a Disney attraction. LOVED it! We are going to try and make a worse one next time.
