If there was a scientific term for fear of roller coasters, what should it be?

Actually...

They had a special on treating people who are scared of coasters.  They talked about it, then, put them in front of a wide-screen TV and played a POV of a coaster and they were all screaming and what not and they couldn't go until all of them watched it.  Then, they moved to phase 2 of the program and they dragged them onto that coaster they just watched.  And they all made it!

Ptboy11, I believe the coaster was the hulk right? I remember seeing something like that.

I remember seeing that show on the hulk it was on again not that long ago.  I think most people who are afraid of coasters are afraid of heights or the feeling you get on the first drop.

Yeah, I believe it was Hulk because I remember it was green (like that limits it down).  I love that first drop feeling, especially on Bull, that seems like the only ride that can still give it to me.
