Ack! I'm terrified of roller coasters. You could seriously not pay me to get on the really twisty-turny ones that go upside down. I think it's a control issue, maybe.
I'm the same. I think I even have 'rollercoaster wuss' as my user title on another forum.
I'm definitely not an adrenalin junkie. Adrenalin tends to make me feel sick. I get motion sick easily on rollercoasters as well. And I'm scared of heights. So, uh, needless to say, I haven't been on one since my teens.
I always loved carnival rides as a kid, but the traveling ones only had those little "kiddie coasters", and I've never got to experience going on a real roller coaster, but its one of the things on my "wish list" for someday. The last time I went to a carnival (county fair a couple years back) I got sick just going on mild stuff like the Tornado ride so I don't know what a real coaster would do to me, but I'd still want to give one a try someday. The sad part is I live within a days automobile travel of Silverwood theme park, but I don't drive, and I've never been able to talk friends (even ones that like stuff like that) into going there as a summer outing (even if I drove, going alone would be rather intimidating and probably a bit depressing too). As a poor subsitute, its still fun to play with Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 and design stuff and do the virtual ride thing.
I don't like the ones that go upside down or the really extreme ones, but the less extreme ones are pretty fun. I like water rides/slides better, though.
Oh, and I cannot tolerate spinning. Sometimes even watching TV when they keep spinning the camera around the room will make my stomach start to complain.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
We use to have a local amusement park and it had the zippin pippin which was I think, but not sure, Elvis's favorite coaster but it shut down a year ago so now the closest place that has rides is I don't know but too far to just get in the car and go. They did talk about building a disney theme park in Desoto, MS which is an hour south of Memphis but they couldn't get the land to build I would have loved that. But now 6 flags is about an hour from here so if I get a car *fingers crossed* I could go their some weekends.
