In response to a few roller coaster related questions posted here, I'd like to ask, do you think thrilling rides are for everyone?
And also, has anyone tried thrilling rides in theme parks and got even more scared than before? I felt that way. Not only that, I realized that I have motion sickness and I'm afraid of free fall feeling, but not heights. I tried to overcome this a couple of times, but it got worse and worse. My friends find it real fun to try one after another. Mine was the converse and my face was really pale because of feeling so scared after some rides. Has anyone encountered this problem in specific? How do you really overcome it?
- Yes, (almost) everyone should try itVote A
- No, it's not for everyoneVote B

I hate, HATE, roller coasters. I used to kind of like them when I was really little. Then, when I was around 5, we went to Disneyland. I was the exact weight requirement for the tower of terror, so I got to ride it. The ride just had that metal bar that goes across your legs, but because I was little mine didn't fit properly under the bar. Long story short, my dad basically had to hold me down whenever it dropped. Ever since, I can't deal with the sense of free falling. I literally start shaking when I have to ride a roller coaster or anything else that involves free falling.0
