There IS turning back now....
Haunted Mansion is too scary for my kids. We tried it our last visit.
When the room stretched they started to get uncomfortable. But when the voice said, "There's NO turning back now..." that was it for them.
They said, "Mommy, can we turn back now?" so we left instead of getting in the car.
Now, every time we go somewhere in the car, they joke back in forth in the back seat..."There's NO turning back now..." "There IS turning back now!" "NO turning back" "YES turning back" "NO" "I'm turning baaacckkk." "Get BACK Here!" Then they laugh like crazy.
Kids are funny.

That is hilarious! I love it. It will always be their own little inside joke forever.
LOL!! That's funny. Thanks for sharing. How old are your kids?
I don't think I was ever scared by any of the rides at Disneyland when I was little. Even as a kid who would never watch horror movies growing up, the Haunted Mansion was one of my favorites. I found it almost magical with all the amazing stuff that goes on.

3 and 5 now, they are getting old so fast.

The 3 has done Matterhorn but she's terrified of the monster - the ride itself is fine.
Last time when the big sister was watching Jedi training (didn't make the cut that time) I had to take little sister to the back where the troopers storm in because she wanted to get away from Darth Vader. As we're standing in the back by the rope Darth Maul walks right up to her and gives her a scary face. I told her to use the force on him so she did the hand shake/push motion thing, and he left. Then she said, "I want to go somewhere else," so we did. I wish I had the Darth Maul thing on tape, it was so funny, though next time I'll keep her away from the rope area.
I will do everyone one better in the strange kid department.
My bean pole twin Julia (4.5 yrs old) LOVES splash mountain, begs to go on Pirates, and rides the toontown roller coaster with squeals of delight...but she is absolutely terrified, shaking in terror, at the ......you would never guess....the McDonalds playland. WTF?
I had to crawl inside twice to get her out, and trust me, those things are not designed for large guys.
Please remember I am a guy. If you found anything in the above post offensive, I cannot help it. For more info, see Brad Paisley's "I'm just a guy."
lol this is too funny. I don't let my little guy go in the mcdonald's playland for fear that he WON'T come out and I'll be stuck trying to get him! haha.

My DS was 2 and we took him on the astro orbiter, I was a little worried he'd be afraid of it. I was so wrong, he had a fit because it wouldn't got higher!
He is 7 now and is so mad he is too short for scream'n a ride I won't get on!
LOL, love the Darth Maul. He tried to stare Grr(ds) down when he was 4 and got the evil eye and force push too.
But Dad, the clown is scary!

You know my 11 DD is still not a fan of the yeti in MH. Go figure.
I had to crawl all the way in there to get my DS out when he was about two. He was up there laying in the thing, doing nothing. He screamed and cried on the car ride until about 15 seconds from home -- then he fell asleep. Those were the days.
