Text of most memorable dream reports from participants in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011 and other sources. Exact question used in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011: We are interested in hearing the story of an especially memorable dream you had, from any time in your life. Please try to recall as many details as possible, including the setting, characters, colors, actions, and any feelings or thoughts you had in the dream. I was three when I started having this dream but it often reoccurs. It begins in my dad's old arcade. There is some sort of natural disaster happening outside (usually a tornado) and all of the customers are hiding in the corner behind a barricade of games. I am scared and have to run by a dinosaur game which had frightened me in reality as well. (The game had motion sensors so that it roared whenever a patron would walk by it.) I remember hearing the roar and running to the corner where everyone else was. Then we get into a coveniently placed elevator. The elevator isn't large but all of us don't seem to have any difficulty in standing in it comfortably. (Dream magic!) The elevator starts moving but then jerks in different directions. Think Tower of Terror speed meets the glass elevator of Willy Wonka fame. I've never actually had the dream conclude. I wake before it can.
