Which is scarier?Universal Studios Hollywood: A comparison for people who rode BOTH Jurassic Park (USH) and Collosus (Magic Mountain)!
From Annie XI just kind of adjusted to bigger rollercoasters (I rode Batman and Collosus recently at Magic Mountain) and the first big drop on Collosus is nothing for me. I rode Jurassic Park a while ago, and I remember that the drop was terrifying for me. Can anybody tell me which drop is bigger/scarier so I can see if I'll have the guts to ride Jurassic Park again?

I'm a big chicken.

From Mostly AnonymousWell, referencing RCDB.com and Wikipedia, the big drop on Colossus is 115 feet high, and Jurassic Park's drop is only 85 feet high. It's much smaller and slower.

So I'm guessing it's the theming that made it scary. On Colossus it's a simple ride, you're outdoors, you can see the bottom of the drop. On Jurassic Park you're moving from indoors to outdoors, from the top you can't see how big the drop is, plus you're a little disoriented from the scary theming and dinosaurs.
Next time you ride Jurassic Park, when you'll know what to expect on the ride, I think you won't find it anything like as scary as before.
From Annie XI'm definately trying it again the next time I go. I think the thing that makes Jurassic Park scary is the suspense before you fall, the 10-9-8-7... countdown. Thanks for the advice!
