Fear of rollercoasters.

Ever since I was small (which I still am, and 13!) I was always afraid of big rides, and rollercoasters. And I still am! It sucks! I really want to go on one but always been too afraid. I always feel embaressed when I go to theme parks. Eg: when on holiday on isle of wight, there’s this wonderful place called robin hill, and they have one of those huge swingboats, and I just stood there filming as the rest of my family went on it. Then my dad tried to get me to go on it, but I was too afraid, and he -pretty much hated me for it. And I felt so upset. But during the day I was building up courage to go on it again, but by that time, I was getting really hungry and cold, and I have a theory that you shouldn’t go on a thrill ride on an empty or full stomach, but my dad just said I was too scared. But I wasn’t, just didn’t want to make my first experience on one sh* and put me off them even more.

Anyway, I am totally fed up about this, and I want to be able to prve to people, I can. So I want to know, what rollercoasters would be best a a beginner that is petrified of them. Somewhere in uk and easy to get to. And get over my fear.

Omg Same. I can’t go on any upsidedown ones but the smallish bigish ones are ok I suggest you just go on the ones I go on as much as possible until you get used to the feeling then go on the bigger ones :]

I’ve always had a fear of heights. Park and fair rides terrified me.

Then one day I was at Six Flags over Texas and all of my friends were riding on the then new Shock Wave rollercoaster. I hadn’t been to an amusement park for years but I was determined not to be the only person in my group too afraid to ride the new ride.

I went on the ride expecting to be terrified but instead it was loads of fun. I’m not going to say I wasn’t scared; it was scary but it was also exciting and fun. A little fear makes it even more exciting. Since then I’ve ridden on rollercoasters 3 times as high and always had a great time.

If you are going to be terrified on the rides like I was when I was a kid just skip them. You are at a amusement park to have fun not to prove something to friends. If your fear is manageable than do go ahead and try to go on a scary ride. You might find like I did that you really like it.

I was old when I got over it. What made me get over it? realizing I was in my mid 20’s and seeing these 10 year olds excited to get on… I thought to myself: Am I scared to go where a 10 year old isn’t? Then the heavens opened up, harpsplayed beautiful music, and I said, I am doing it! I got on, and now, every time I see a coaster or thrill ride, I got to get on!!! in the US, the Six Flags group of parks is the best. Vegas has a few coasters in Hotels too!

Answer #5

I understand. I was afraid until I was 22 years old. I was in remission and my husband decided that bc I looked death in the face then I could look fear in the face. he took me to the biggest roller coster at great america and forced me on it… I loved it! I am now a roller coaster fanatic! you just got to suvk up all you courage and go on. even if you hate it you still tried. and try a bunch of them! have fun!
