my first roller coaster ride

i’ve always suffered from motion sickness.  it was so bad when i was a kid to the point that i throw up.  until now as old as i am i still feel nauseated when i’m inside a vehicle that makes sharp curves on the road, or that occasional turbulence that i encounter during flights.   i think this was the reason that i avoided theme parks, for how will i call fun rides as “fun” when i dread to be on one of them?!

so another of my 10 things i have not done before list was to take a ride on a roller coaster.  when i was on my days off last march, i invited my parents and my siblings at enchanted kingdom.  actually, i went beyond on just riding one.  out of my pumped-up adrenaline, i managed to try their drop tower ride, ekstreme, where it raised us up at 150 feet in the air sending a flock of butterflies in my stomach.  i was just waiting to faint as it suddenly dropped without warning!

after surviving the drop tower ride, me and my brothers immediately went to the roller coaster ride, space shuttle max.  still feeling woozy, my blood was pumping as i sat on one of the seats.

space shuttle max is an inverted version of the vekoma boomerang coaster that consists of a single train with seven cars, capable of carrying 28 passengers.  the ride begins when the train is pulled backwards from the station and up a lift hill, before being released. after being released, the train passes through the station, enters a cobra roll element (referred to as a boomerang by the designers), then travels through a vertical loop.

to show as proof, here is an embarassing picture of me “screaming like a bitch”, hahaha!   as i experience my first roller coaster ride.


i felt terrible afterwards.  will i do it again?  never. 🙂

  1. napatawa ako sa pic mo! i know how you feel!

    takot din ako sa mga roller coasters. i remember my first ride.. it was in space mountain in hk disneyland. it was inside a big “building.” so sumama ako.. madilim sa loob so i didn’t know what the ride was. when we were told to secure all our things, pati hats bawal, nagtaka ako kung bakit.. ayun, roller coaster pala! grabe! the entire ride was in a dark place, to simulate space, kaya mas nakakatakot! almost the entire ride, nakapikit ako, with matching luha dahil naiiyak ako! he he! muntik na ako atakihin sa puso talaga! and will i ride another one? no na din! he he!

    • .. pinagtawanan sa bahay ang pic na yan grace, haha.

      .. mas intense yung ride mo! ako di na ko pumikit, pero pag di ko na nararamdaman yung katawan ko, parang masakit na yung pakiramdam e, problema tumataas bp ko when i’m under stress. kaya ayun, di na uulit!

  2. i can hear you screaming by just looking at your pic LOL. nothing to be embarrased about, hindi ka naman napa-ihi sa salawal LOL. i have to be paid big time to get me to ride one of those steel monsters.
