I love rollercoasters! I will ride any I have access to. I was a very wimpy child and it took me a long time to warm up to them, but now I can't get enough.

One time in my teens I went to ride this one. It chugged up to the first high point and stopped there. I'm not sure what went wrong exactly, but the staff had to come up to unstrap us, and we had to walk all the way back down on the spindly little staircase. It put me off the rollercoaster for the rest of the day, but thankfully I had gotten over it by the next time I went to a themepark.

It's been many years but I used to love them as a child and teen! I wonder if my stomach could still handle them. :D

I prefer wooden rollercoasters and others that are not super wild - I'm one of those who have always refused to ride anything that goes upside down or has loops. (Once I unknowingly tried one, it wasn't a rollercoaster but a wheel type thing. Never again! I mean, I did survive to tell the tale but that isn't enough to convince my brain and overcome the fear...  :P )

My favourite coaster is the old wooden one at Linnanmäki, Helsinki. I haven't been to many theme parks outside Finland, though, and I may have been too young/short to ride the rollercoasters back then anyway.

We have two wooden roller coasters at the local amusement park. Hubby and I went on the Zippin' Pippin once. After 10 seconds I was done for, I just get vertigo really bad. Hard pass if anyone ever asked me to go on one again. At least we can say we did it...

I used to love them, and probably still would if not for a severe head injury years ago that did me in. Now I get vertigo if I even sit up from a laying position too fast. The last time I was on one was in 2006 when my high school boyfriend and I had gotten back together for a summer, and I scored us $10 tickets to Six Flags. It was raining, so the park was completely dead. We got to ride some coasters multiple times in a row without even getting off of them. We were soaked, but it was such a great day.

Love rollercoasters. I'm excited that amusement parts are back open! So much to do.

I'm too scared of rollercoasters ever since I watched Final Destination 3.

Yes, I’ve been on many but only because of peer pressure.  :lol:  I don’t like heights at all.  But, these days I don’t ride them because they make me hurt all over and nauseas.

The only rides I’ve really liked are log rides.  They’re slower.

Log rides are also fun.
