Last time you threw up on or after a coaster

Friday, July 26, 2002 10:51 AM

When was the last time you threw up during or after a roller coaster ride?

Personally, I have a problem where I get motion sickness frequently, whether it be while out on the sea or on a roller coaster. Throwing up, despite how gross it is, has become a part of visiting amusement parks to me. I can often handle coasters without puking if I ride them over time, and not over and over again. When I ride them over and over again, I get sick. Fortunately, I have learned to live with it. After I get sick, I get right back up and keep riding. I don't let it stop my day or my friends' day.

So, my question to you is - Do you still throw up on or after a roller coaster ride?

I never have and have never even felt sick - but the last time I was at CP, my hopefully soon-to-be girlfriend rode MF for the first time - she and the other girl we had with us rode mid-train, because I was a single I got to ride front seat, but when they got off, one was white and the other was green - they both had to sit down or they seriously were going to throw up ...

but of course after they returned to normal color they wanted to ride it again

I never have. I think you'll find that almost no one here has, but maybe once.

If I threw up every time I went to a park, I wouldn't be a coaster enthusiast.

I never have, and like PittDesigner, I have never felt sick either.

The only thing about a ride that would make me feel "sick" would be seeing someone get sick on/after a ride... NO THANKS.

Hey, someone started a thread about me!

I was riding Magnum last year during Millennium Mania. I was only on for 6 rides or so until I informed my riding partners (you know who you are!) that I really didn't feel good! I then jumped out of the train and ran down the exit, where I then leaned over the exit rail.

I'm half sure it was from
A: Riding over a wheel and
B: Not eating
I can't explain, however, why I got so sick on Blue Streak ;)

On a roller coaster? No. Flatrides, oh yes! Now, I tend to avoid most spinning flatrides, (are there any other kind?) I know my limits. As a kid, I would go on any flatride and would usually pay the price by dancing the trash can tango.

Considering I'm able to get back up and ride again even after I've gotten sick wouldn't make me a non-enthusiast -- If anything, it would make me more enthusiastic than most people since I'm willing to re-ride after that.

It's really hard to explain. I don't throw up every time I go to an amusement park. I throw up only if I ride coasters over and over, instead of walking around a bit to cool off before re-riding.

I hope you at least make it to a garbage can or bathroom if you do it that often.

Never thrown up after any ride. But I have felt queasy before, usually the result of gorging on an entire funnel cake by myself and then riding a tilt-a-whirl or monster.

Walking? Cooling off? Whats that all about? I thought the whole point was to run full-tilt from line to line all day long until you can't walk anymore or they throw you out ;)

Julie, I've seen someone throw up on your "baby" at WoA before - it was quite disgusting ... especially since I sat in their seat right after. Then again, they were sittin there with hoses and disinfectant for 15 minutes, so I guess it was actually the cleanest seat on the ride!

Only thrown up after riding Mind Eraser @ GLP in '97 a good 20 times in 40* weather. I also found out i had the flu the next day, which might have been the reason i threw up.

I have seen many people throw up though, but for some reason on rides with no inversions.

Oh gosh :( No offense, glad it was you not me... I don't know, it just makes me all uneasy when things like that happen.

I got sick at the Butler County(Ohio) Fair last night. Their scrambler was spinning really fast, also they had a ride called the Hurricane that spun so fast it hurt my neck.

Never threw up on coasters or flats. Not even when Kara got me on drummer boy. I DO get disoriented and dizzy when riding Witches Wheel tho.

Very glad I missed that. If it's a little kid I guess it's not AS bad, but an adult, UGH!!!!!

Someone couldn't handle the reride we got on XFlight. Once we hit the helix... yikes. GLAD I wasn't riding by them. That sure made getting a reride WAY less exciting.

Never gotten sick on a rollercoaster, but on spinning flat rides, I have felt sick, although I heve never thrown up at a park. I also start to feel like I am going to throw up if someone else throws up.
