Coaster Sickness: Anyone with symptoms?

Tuesday, August 15, 2000 7:27 PM
Has anyone ever gotten sick while riding a coaster? Motion sickness isn't really all that common from roller coasters. However, my friend's little brother gets it just from riding in a car, let alone a roller coaster.
I myself have never been sick from one. Has anyone else? Honestly?

After quite possibly the worst hamburger on the face of the planet @ Michigan's Adventure, and 10 rides on Shivering Timbers, I felt queasy, but did not toss cookies. Roller coasters usually never get to me, I guess all that air-time combined with that hocky puck they called a burger made for an uneasy situation.

When I was younger, I would get on plenty of flat rides. I think the term "spin & puke" was named after me. Here is a list of flat rides that have made me heave when I used to go on them.
Tilt-a-whirl (on ride)
Mexican Hat Dance (teacups, after 3 times in a row)
Scat (a carnie ride)
Dragon Swing (huss pirate ship)
Zipper (also on ride)
Hammerhead
I also get sea sick quite easily.

Luckily, like I said, coasters almost never get to me the way flat rides do.

last year at CP, I got 2 huge slices of pizza that I thought I could finish off, but they were too much. I ate as much as I could while standing in Magnum's line. I felt WAAAAAAY too full, about on the brink of throwing up, and I was in line for Magnum. I got on figuring I would probably regret it, but to my surprise, it settled my stomach. Maybe it was the adrenaline pumping that did it.

If anybody gets motion sickness, they should take some Dramamine II. Dramamine will make you drowsy, so I'd use the other one.

After Eating one of CP's dill pickles I rode the Raptor last year. Barely made it out of the station before puking my guts out. Typically I ride Raptor towards the end of my day and I usually puke half the time. Raptor seems to be the only coaster that does it to me.

I was like CPgenius,,waiting in line for Magnum, I felt sick, but it was around 4 and the sun was beating down on me, then when i got to the mist fan, i started to feel better,,i think it was just the heat.

I have eaten three or four servings at Midway Market at Cedar Point, and gotten in a five minute wait for Raptor and ridden. At the end. I feel fantastic. I can stuff my face, and even ride "Spin & Pukes" and feel fine. I have a stomach of steel, I guess!!

CPGenius, Dramamine is what my friend's brother takes. He's fine all day. He loves rollercoasters to death...
The only real time I have ever felt sick on a ride was on a carny ride this year. It was the Gravitron. I sat up on the side while it was spinning. My head started nodding side to side, making me very disoriented. That really made me tipsy. When I got off, I had to walk very slowly back to the booth I was working at helping my friends. I felt better a little while after.
Coasters though, they never have any effect on me. (Watch me eat my own words one of these days.. be my luck!)
