    A long time ago there used to be a "chicken out" place to wait for people in the party who want to stay with the group in que but not actually ride the ride. Is this still available for the larger roller coasters like Space Mtn?

    Heigh-Ho Kendall,

    I saw your question and had to giggle because while I am a fan of rollercoasters, I am petrified of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and either regrettably plummeted down the elevator shaft or, on a good day, managed to not give in to peer pressure and had a Cast Member show me the way to freedom. I, also, can vividly remember one trip, with my sister and nieces, and I spent the entire time asking Cast Members to kindly show my middle-niece and me to the “chicken out” exit. If I remember correctly we left The Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, MISSION: Space, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith and most definitely The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. She tried to talk herself on to them but… 

    So, I can emphatically say, “YES!”  There is a way out and a Cast Member will kindly rescue you and direct anyone, that realizes this is not the ride for them, a way to escape. If I can assist with any further curiouser and curiouser inquiries feel free to ask. And as your stay quickly approaches stay up to date with changes in procedures and guidelines by reading the Know Before You Go page and follow the Disney Parks Blog for updated Disney News.

    Have a  Practically Perfect Day,
