    Re: Do you hold on?

    it was actually quite funny because when i rode ee, it was my first time and i didn't know what to expect once the drop came, i held on for my life! In our picture my face looks absolutely horrified lol. On TOT, i had my hands raised high and was ready for the picture too. On SM, i actually made myself raise my hands even though i was actually freaking out about the drop. Haha well it turned out to be fine and the picture came out with my hands raised high above my head

    Re: Do you hold on?

    This is a great question. I guess I only hold on for dear life on two rides: TOT and RnRC. During the blast off in RnRC my knuckles turn white and the same goes for TOT. Otherwise my arms are always in the air!

    Re: Do you hold on?

    For me it depends on how many times I have been on the ride!! For rides like space mountain, which I have been on a million times, and I love it, I wont hang on, but for rides I don't do as often, like the TOT, I hang on for dear life and scream my head off. Yep I get made fun of a lot cause I scream like a girl... but I can't help what I am!! lol

    Re: Do you hold on?

    My hands go up on every thrill ride. It's so much fun. I find TOT less scary when my hands are up because if you hold on you can feel yourself being pulled down which scares you.lol. For space mountain I don't put my hands up just cuz I always feel like they will get chopped off by all the bars and stuff...hahaha so I just don't hold onto the bar and raise them up to my head and that's it..haha.

    Arms up!!! Except for SM, I remember hearing stories of accidents when it first opened so I don't put my arms up, but I do tease my wife and say that I am.
