I don't know that Tower of Terror is my favorite ride at Disney, but it rates right up there at the top of the list somewhere... in May 2011 I had the pleasure of riding with a newbie, my husband's Grandma. (She could have outdone us all at Disney!!)
Below is our ride photo. We were in the top row on the left. You couldn't see not one of our faces because each of them were blocked by an arm or a hand from the row in front of us. (You should be able to double-click on the image to enlarge it to see better...)
Boy, would I have loved to have seen her face! She had a pretty good hold of mine and Dad's arms during the drop, but when she got of she said she'd enjoyed herself! I'm so glad I got to experience her first Disney trip with her! So much fun!!
