I am a self-pronounced wimp and I have been assuming that I would not be riding TOT, as sad as that makes me. But, the past couple of days I have talked to several people that have done TOT and told me I must ride it. My dilemma is that I HATE elevators - they really freak me out - get kind of claustrophobic and I have recurring falling elevator nightmares. So, if you absolutely hate elevators, wil TOT really freak me out?

Okay, confession time - the last time I was at DL (about 25 years ago) I had a claustrophobia/panic attack on the submarines - my mom still laughs about it (at my expense:( ).

well I suffer from blackouts on drops, like I can't do Splash Mt...I did it once cause everyone said you'll be fine....yeah they dont' know me, and I did it and nearly blacked out and had to sit for liek 2 hours. So one day we had a group of 4 and they love the ride and they went on it and I didn't want to be a bum so I decided to ride it myself. Long story short I absolutley hated it, but I was fine, but now I can say I rode it and never have to do it again...but the decor is very cool

Ummm, yes. If you've got a problem with elevators, you really don't want to do ToT. No matter how many people tell you that it's really no big deal, you are the only one that knows your limits. ToT is esentially a simulation of an out of control falling elevator. If you already have nightmares about this, the reality should just about tip you over the edge. I'd stay away.

Once you're inside the seats, it really has no resemblance(sp) to an elevator. I hate the feeling of falling, but the ride did'nt fall as extreme as I thought, and I'm glad I went on. If you are claustophobic its probably not the best. The area you are seated in is about the size of 4-6 actual elevators, and you seat facing the front (sort of like a movie theatre).Besides the drop, being in a tight space is no worse on this ride than the elevator into the HM. Hope this helps.

What elevator in the HM - now I know I did the Haunted Mansion as a kid and while I don't remember it too much (not like the submarines) I don't remember anything freaking me out either???

It's kind of the pre show. You go into a big elevator with pictures on the wall, and as you go down, the picture reveils a tradgic scene. Then the doors open and you go into your doom buggy.

The HM elevator is the stretching room. In DL it's an elevator that goes down. In the MK the floor never moves, but the stretching goes upward.

If you look at the posting time, we all were typing together! I take it you are not a religious person.

I, for one, really appreciated all the answers - doesn't hurt anything, does it? Anyway, thanks for all of those that responded - I think I will probably skip TOT:(

I too don 't like the dropping feel so I didn't want to go on TOT, but my whole family talked me into it. I WILL NEVER EVER RIDE TOT AGAIN!! I was so mad:mad: that I didn't listen to myself. I was so scared and I even cried:crying: . They take a picture of you while on the ride and when we saw it we had to buy it. I've never been so scared :eek: looking in my whole life and I'm 33. Don't do it. We just went back in December and I was more then happy to stay behind waiting with the 4 kids while the crazy folks went on he ride.

My daughter is claustrophobic and doesn't have a problem on TOT. She has/had one on Haunted Mansion. HOWEVER, every person is different. Personally, if you already have nightmares regading falling elevators, this ride may not be for you.

Deja Vu...Anyway, if you're freaked out by all this stuff, maybe you should stay home?

ToT's elevator is smaller than HM's...
It will probably freak you out... however, if you don't think you'll be sick and can conquer your fears... I'd try it. But if you are going to be terrified, it isn't worth it.

Hey mask, welcome to online. I don't think Mouseplanet is any worse than any other board. In fact, it's really a much more civil place than many. Don't let a couple of nitwits spoil your fun - I sure don't!
