    I don't like that free fall feeling of the bigger coasters or anything that goes upside down. It makes me woozy. But anything that is more about the ride than the thrill (Disneyland stuff) I'm all for.

    First time I went on a rollercoaster I was with the EoFFer, Justy. IT WAS AMAZING. We went on so many. They were so fun.

    I havent been on many but as long as they dont have too many tight turns I find the feeling of weightlessness terrifying at first then quite relaxing as I atune to it.

    If I'm not going upside down at LEAST three times, it's a waste of time.

    I like them, as long as they don't make my head crash against the seat so I feel like I've got a massive headache afterwards. It happens on the more shaky rides. I remember one ride where my head just kept bobbing between the sides of the head rest. I needed to sit down for a bit after that one.

    Any ride that is deliberately disorientating is a no. Though to be honest, this mainly applies to the teacup rides and others of their ilk. I can't handle them. They're just way too much. Mr. Carny adores the things; never understood why.

    To be honest, I really like the water rides. There's this ride in... Thorpe Park? Called the Rumba Rapids, it is a fairly gentle 'ride', but it is the perfect cooldown after a really fast roller coaster. And you get sprayed with water, which is always fun. And you can chat with your friends and relax for a bit. And the line is usually short for it as well, which is a plus.

    I really miss theme parks now. I kinda want to go. But after the Alton Tower deaths, that has put me off somewhat.

    Considering I have a pretty bad fear of flying, I actually really enjoy roller coasters. Alton Towers is probably the best one in the UK, despite recent incidents.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-32985384

    That reminds me of a water slide I went on at the Palm Atlantis in Dubia. You stand up in a tube, you are told to cross your arms and legs then the floor just opens and you drop vertically a LOOOOOOONG way down this dark tube into a pool of water. I cracked my ankle on the way down and it was just generally unpleasant.

    I should have known when there was no queue for the ride.

    I didn't think anyone died? Assuming we're talking the crashes earlier this year!
