Like Radioactive_hairgel, I love fairground rides, I adore theme park rides and I'm up for anything! My favourite rides are the kind which make you turn upside down.

I quite like the feeling of fear. Normally, when I'm on a really thrilling ride I think "I hate this ride. I want to get off!" but when the ride is finished my thoughts change and I'm likely to say "That ride was awesome! I want to go on it again!"

TheLaughingGooner - You are definitely not the only one who can't handle spinning rides. I know a lot of people who feel the same as you about them.

I HATE fairground rides!! They make me feel sick! Anything that goes too fast or upside down I cant handle, that horrible stomach feeling, bleuch!!! I once went on one of the big rides at Alton Towers and when I came off i was shking and nearly sick; it was horrible!! But- I do like dogdems and the Waltzers!!! :D

I agree with you, Fuzzy. Fairground rides make me feel so ill! Not that I've been on many, I'm too much of a wimp! I have quite a sensitive stomach, I get sea sick and even taking off in a plane makes my stomach lurch. Like Laughing Gooner, I thought this may be a dyspraxic thing.

I am ready for any ride you throw at me. I could go on a ride that drives you backwards in pitch black with bugs projected around you and massive 400lb creatures freefalling inches away from you and come out happy.

After three rides on anything I can do the entire thing without batting an eyelid. Instead of sticking my hands up and shrieking, I fold my arms and yawn.

I LOVE THRILL RIDES!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

i love trhew rides where they spin you round with a wall at your back and you are forced against the wall then they spin you so that you are horizontal. I climb up and by the time the ride ends I am upside down at the top of the booth- there's something abou me and being upside-down. I love it!!!!!

The Waltzers a the best. I love the feeling of not really beign there lol. I love my rides Ive been to Drayton Manor and Funderworld which are for me the best places for rides. But Ive never beent o Alton Towers. Maybe we should have a dyspraxic day at Alton Towers lol. Who ever is the last to be sick wins lol.

Tue Sep 06, 2005 7:50 pm

Tue Sep 06, 2005 7:58 pm
