When I went with my parents years ago, my dad let go of my mums hand and screamed that the Alien had got him just as the lights went off and the breathing/ saliva started. My mum cried for an hour.
I'm getting so excited about getting partners out - I've got a huge shopping trip to the nearest big fabric/ craft store.
When my family went about 15 years ago, my little brother and I got on the Alien ride.. I got too scared at the last minute and got off, but he(6 years old) stayed on. OMG! He came off of the ride sooo scared that he refused to ride ANY other ride at Disney World, not even Peter Pan, or Snow White, or anything! Kinda ruined his trip I think!
