I was scared of roller coasters and once in elementary we went to Knott's Berry Farm and I had to ride 3 rollercoasters and I felt like I was gonna die. I wasn't forced but I didn't want to feel left out😤😤 after 3 I had a big ass headache

I went on top thrill dragster and I thought my brain was going to be edited from my mouth. It was absolutely dreadful but amazing at the same time. But of course I got off of the ride with brain damage

I have a severe phobia of roller coasters. I went on the ride of steele at darien lake, which was my first real roller coaster, and I passed out about 3 times and I literally couldn't fall asleep, cause I kept getting the falling feeling in my stomach every time I closed my eyes and got super dizzy 😂

Did they really have to start them out with top thrill dragster and millennium force?? They should have done a small coaster first like the mine ride

I used to hate coasters and would freak out if I was being pressured to go on one but after going to cp again I just thought to myself I won’t die roller coasters are technically safer than bikes

I hate roller coasters so much. It’s not a fear of dying that freaks me out I just hate the feeling you get on big drops. I used to be able to ride big rides but now I could never. If someone wants me to get in a big ride I have a panic attack and literally freak out even if I’m in the middle of the park. One time I was at six flags and a friend wanted me to go on a ride called American eagle but the drop looked humongous to me. She was grabbing me and pulling me towards the ride and I was screaming and yelling, to passer Byers it probably looked like she was kidnapping me😂 when ever my summer camp goes to six flags I always request to go with the little kids so I don’t have to sit around while the kids my age go on huge coasters. That’s why I hate six flags cause every coaster is huge. I like Disney better cause I’m comfortable riding everything! Except space mountain, never space mountain.

I hate rollercoasters. It’s scares the shit out of me. I was sobbing when I almost went through to go on a rollercoaster. I don’t think I’ll ever ride a rollercoaster.

Tomorrow I'm going to lake Winnie in Tennessee... I'm trying to face my fear of rollercoasters and hights.... I'm going in the rollercoasters there and the drop ride called the oh - zone... It sends you up 14 stories in the air and drops you down at 58 miles per hour.... I hope i can over come my fear... Wish me luck..

They are the weakest ppl I know! When I traveled to Ohio with my family (I was around 8), we chose to go to Cedar Point (the same place), my dad took me on the millennium force as well and in return, I’d receive a secret prize. May I mention I have a fear of heights as well. When I finished, guess what I got? The prize of knowing I just rode one of the tallest rides in the world. Yeah. It sucks.😑😓🤕🤧🤮

It's good to be scared on a big ride like they have at cedar point because I personally greyed out on ttd because my heart wasn't pumping enough blood to my head

I'm scared of heights and roller coasters and when I even get near roller coasters or something high I start feeling sick to my stomach and my anxiety starts and comes at me hard I also start shaking.
