anyone ever blackout?

Saturday, I was riding Face/off at PKI (backwards) and during the return voyage through the loop, i blacked out. It was an interesting feeling. Has anyone else blacked out on a coaster before? Please share your experience!

I got really light headed and didn't know where I was during the loop and the turn into the barrel rolls on X-Flight. I was also dizzy for 5 minutes afterward. Thats the first time it ever happened. I wasn't really a black out though.

I was also on x-flight and was dizzy after getting off. I cant imagine this summer how many people will pass out on hot days.

One day I had a terrible headache and for some stupid reason I decided to ride Mean Streak (Don't ask why), after unloading I was walking down the ramp and I fainted, not a fun experience.

While on Titan, my vision was getting a little blurry. I love the helixes.

I've greyed out a few times on Mr. Freeze at SFStL, and B:TR once.

My sight goes away for a second in the cobra roll on face/off and the double loop of vortex, both rides at PKI, odd sensation, isn't it?

Of all rides, Corkscrew at CP always makes me blue out through the loop. Same with PKI's King Cobra.

I always black out on the Hulk when entering the loop after the cobra roll. I see 'stars' in my vision. Its not pleasant! It's such an intense ride!

Okay, just a thought, maybe we're riding just a few too many coasters if we do black out?

I never have -- the closest I came was after riding Raptor (walk-on platform) 7 times in 45 minutes. I was starting to get a little loopy, but in no way related to blacking out.

Riders, be careful! ;)

I started seeing spots in front of me on Titan during the helix going downward, and I started to feel light headed to. That was proboly as close as Ive ever come to a blackout.

While riding Two Face (an invertigo) at SFA, I began to black out. It was coming back through the circuit entering the cobra roll. I was riding forwards at the time. As we went up, my vision started to tunnel. It actually seemed sorta cool afterwords. You don't really notice until the G's are over then you think "Whoa.. that was intense".

On The B:TR (The B:TR is SFGAm's) I have had blurry vision twice while going through the 0-G roll. That is about it, never a real black out.

Everybody says that this happens, but it has never happened to me, once. I wonder why?
