I would have to say the cliff, I have immense fear of being in high places.  I always fear someone is going to push me over edges that are high up, like balconies, high bridges, rooftops, so I usually try to stay away from places like that.  I think it's a trust issue.

The cliff one because If i'm high up somewhere I feel like I'll fall down from someplace high.

Snakes for me. I also dislike needles and roller-coaster rides. The rides look fun from the ground, but I don't think I can hack it!

Lions is the only other to say snakes.  I avoid them.  Problem is only when I don't know if they're poisonous or not.  I'm not afraid to handle them though but ain't into dangerous ones. :)

Bees and spiders used to creep me out but am much better as of late, but heights o man you get me up on a roof or over 5 ft off the ground its all over for me.

Ferris wheel or roller coaster would for sure be a heart check for me.

Never had a problem when I was young but for the longest time since I'm like a little girl. :roll:

I live in a seaside town with a lot of arcades/amusements dotted about the place. One of the things that used to terrify me when I was a nipper were them clowns in the glass boxes. You know, the big buggers that would move around mechanically, laughing in a repeated pattern when you put money in the slot. Thinkin' about it now, it's STILL a bit disturbing. Luckily, you don't see them around so much these days!
I voted for 'spiders' on this poll though. I was stupid and bought a 'Costa Rican Zebra Tarantula' with my first pay-packet years ago. It was the biggest and meanest looking one in the shop, so that's why I think I went for it. It was a blacky brown colour with white stripes on it's legs and a bright white tuft of hair where it's eyes were. I was warned by the bloke in the shop not to handle it as it was aggressive (as if I was gonna handle it!!). I got it home (in it's tank of course) and sat watching it for hours. It wouldn't move about too much, but when it did it was in an eery 'cat' like way. So smoothly. It would also move like lightning when it wanted too. Man it was quick! I was too scared to open the sliding doors and refill it's water bowl, so I'd pour it through the holes in the top of the tank to the bowl below. Feeding it Crickets was a heart attack inducing moment every time too. Open the slide door, pop a couple of crickets in and shut the door in the blink of an eye! You'd never see it eat them though. Only when you'd wake up next morning and check the tank would you see that all the crickets had gone. I even bought it a nice big juicy locust. That was in there, walking about with the spider for months before I woke up and saw just a pair of wings sitting there. Arrr. Anyway I had to sell it in the end because basically I was just too scared of it. Especially after it shedded it's skin and was blacker than it had ever looked before. I'd imagine waking up and seeing the sliding door left open or something. It went to a good home though... bless it's little cotton socks.  :D

I voted for the boat but I'm afraid of spiders too! I'm really scared of brown recluses. I've seen pictures of somebody that has gotten bit by one and it's really gross. It started out as a tiny bite but soon it gets bigger (if you don't cure it) and it starts to rot.

I'm afraid of heights, so probably a cliff. If not a a cliff, a horny gorilla.

I think that being on a Malfunctioning elevator would be the scariest because if that drops you are dead and i hate that feeling in my stomach on like rollercoasters and stuff.................. :cry:
