When do you think you will be too old for coasters? I don't think that I will ever be too old, but I might feel sick or dizzy like my parents.

My mother's been saying she's too old for amusement parks for about ten years. Of course, the fact that she went and got a job at Michigan's Adventure 3 years ago kind of puts a hole in her argument...

My 64 year old biology teacher still rides rollercoasters. I just found that out last week after he came back from Florida and me and him talked coasters for a little while during class. It's amazing who rides rollercoasters. So I hopefully will never be too old to ride rollercoasters but then again I got many years ahead of me since I'm only 16.

You may acquire an infirmity somewhere along the road the keeps you from riding. My dad (76) now has a bad neck that keeps him from riding. However, you are only too "old" is you think you are. I'm 51 and have over 50 coasters planned for this summer.

When I am on a heart and lung machine, and I am diagnosed with every disease imagionable, and I am about 20000000000000000000000000000000000, I will still not be sick or old enough to stop riding coasters.

My dad is 60 and he RUNS to try and get the first ride on Magnum. I think he will ride until he's dead. I know I will!

I've already told my family that when I get too old to ride coasters to end my life...just kidding.

I hope to ride as long as possible. Hopefully, I'll die while on a coaster, that way I can say I spent my last few precious moments doing what I love most. Not to mention, those will be some exciting few moments!

My dad is 65 and rode Magnum with me last year. We started on Gemini and worked our way up.
My mom and dad rode Batman at SFStl the same year.
There's no age limit if your body is in good shape.

Same goes for me! I will ride coasters until it becomes a physical impossibility: when I'm dead.
