    *obvious joke alert*

    It's all about Squirrel Nutty tbh. It's so intense, the memory of riding it was blocked from my mind. ;)

    *end of obvious joke*

    The only ride that has ever scared me at Alton (excluding my very first time on Oblivion aged 10) is Duel. Until 2008 I never made it all the way round with my eyes open :-[

    I love it now though and usually end up riding so much I get a trigger finger related RSI :p

    Everyone else on here seems to love it, but...

    I hate Duel!

    My first day at Alton and I rode oblivion first only because my dad said it wasn't scary and didn't go underground.

    I'm nearly 35 and I only went on Nemesis for the first time on Saturday. (although I've only been to the park 4 times as an adult and the last 2 years it was either closed or the queue was too long and it was the end of the day)

    I also went on the Runaway Mine Train for the first time and screamed when it went in the dark bit :D

    I chickened out of the Marauder's Mayhem (teacups) because we'd not long had lunch and I thought I might be sick.

    I think everyone's done this at one point... It's not nice before or after lunch!

    The Twirling Toadstools scares me - more so than the big coasters... but I still go on it every time.

    You'd better get a move on before the end of the season!

    Sorry for the double post but I agree! I still get scared on duel and come off screaming. Also I have never been on sub-terra and genuinely love ripsaw.

    I normally hardly eat at theme parks but during adrenaline week a few years ago I pigged out at the pizza and pasta buffet in KC so much that I had to do a tactical in the loos in Gloomy Wood.

    Then rode Oblivion a few times to settle my stomach.

    I wish I could say that was the time I finally conquered my fear of Enterprise and that it was worth it but that didn't happen for another couple of years in 2011. That was the last time I visited too.

    Also, I remember noticing how retro the toilets were just before said chunder.
    I think that is also worthy of confession-status hahaha.
