What amusement park rides freak you out?

It's summertime!  Time for amusement park trips and days spent at local carnivals!  I always love conversations about what rides people LOVE and what rides freak them out!  For example, I will ride just about anything...but I do NOT do rides that go upside down and I do NOT let my kids go in the fun house type things.

What about you?  What rides are a yes, and what rides are a NO WAY for you?

Swings freak me out.  SInce I was a kid and a chain broke on one and decapitated a kid on it.  Also any ride that has deep water or puts you underwater, i can't swim.  But I am fine with rollar coasters and any other ride.

I am not a huge fan of the ones that go upside down,  but if they have other good things I might do it anway.

I can't ride anything that spins. I get way to sick.

Nothing that goes up really high, upside down or goes really fast does not work for me.

They have this ride at a nearby amusement park called the spider. I can't ride it. It's got cabs that spin in circles, while eight "legs" that the cabs are attached to go up and down in circles. I got stuck upside down up in the air on it one time and felt like I was falling out and I have hated it ever since. I tried it two separate times after that, thinking I'd gotten over it, but nope. Still scared. I'll ride anything except that one ride. Lol

I LOVE roller coasters!!!! Water rides terrify me. Put me in a lazy river and I am fine all day. Water is sooo powerful. I am not fond of rides that spin. I get headaches.

The ones where your feet are dangling out of them. I refuse to get on any at all.

I hate spinning rides as well. I feel sick within the first 5 seconds.
