I would like to know your opinions on the rollercoaster that make sick or dizzy after riding. My picks would be Top Gun,Vortex and,Outer Limits: Flight of Fear, they are all located at Paramount's Kings Island.
i would probably say millenium force althought it is the best coaster in the world right now. after you ride it and steep onto ground you feel wierd but after a few seconds or so you are back on your feet and ready to ride whatever you want.
i only get sick on rides if a eat right before i get on them.but usally waits are long enough to digest the food.(actually only like 10 or 20% of the time waits are long enough) but i deal with feeling sick and just keep on riding.

Mines got to be Mr. Freeze @ SFSTL. Its a great ride especially since they added the new padding to the horsecollars, but once you step off, you don't know which way your'e going. After riding, a tightrope walker's job looks easy.
Top Steel - Mamba
Top Wood - The Boss
Batman:the ride (you name the park) This thing is relentless, not big, not long, but it does not let up until the final break run. No trims, no block breaks, just all the way fast! I love a coaster with "no breaks," even if it is short.
No rides make me sick, even if I ride right after I've eaten. I've eaten 2 corndogs and a giant soda before riding Mr. Freeze and Batman, and I didn't feel sick at all. Ninja is just kind of boring, I don't know how anyone could get sick on it.
No rollercoaster has ever made me feel sick. The first time I got off of B:TR (SFGAm '92) I could not walk straight. Not sick, just really disoriented. The only time I ever felt close to ill was when I had gotten on one of those swinging ships (at Adventure World now SFA) right after smoking a cigarette. I was lightheaded from the square and the airtime didnt make me feel good (I have since stopped smoking).
I have never gotten sick off a roller coaster but Mean Streak has given me a headache. This year I sat in car 1 seat 3 on gemini and it was extreamly rough when going over track sections at the bottom of the hills. Ouch!
Okay -- just spent 3 days at Parammount's King Island --
First time for me, the Beast: awesome!!
Vortex: loved it -- best ride for the least waiting time.
Son of Beast -- sitting in the last car, watching the cars in front of me during the loop was unbelieable -- it was like slow-motion.
The best of Son of Beast -- the incredible helixes and the power of the damn thing. (Of course I was upset by the fact that they advertise three trains and only one was running!)
And last, and least, that god-awful ride called the "outer limits" -- YUCK!
Yes, I loved being show out of my seat from 0-54 miles per hour in 4 seconds, but the rest of it!! was abusive. Too many helixes and the loops in such a small amount of space was just not good design. Ouch! My girlfriend was messed up for the rest of the day. My assessment was that it felt like you went through a bar brawl -- not to be sexist -- but it was definitely NOT a girl's ride. And I didn't think it was so good, either.
