List Your Biggest Fears and Why…

Rollercoasters

Alton Towers NemesisThis is one of the few rollercoasters I’ve been on and not freaked out – mainly because I was sat next to my Mum and she screamed all the way round which made me laugh instead of freak out!

I can’t do rollercoasters, I go on them once in a while to prove that I still don’t like them but other than that I hate them. Last time I went on a roller coaster was two summers ago when I went on The Grand National ride at Blackpool Pleasure Beach with Our Sidekick and Chris. We were in the queue and said to them that one of them needed to sit with me and we weren’t going at the very front. We got to the front of the queue and lined up, they ended up sitting next to each other in front of me so I ended up sat on my own in one carriage bit. NOT GOOD! We climbed the lift hill and I was sort of okay but we got to the top and I started to freak out. I ended up crying pretty much all the way round, I vaguely remember Our Sidekick turning round to see if I was okay then his face dropping when he saw that I was having issues.

This is a big problem because Chris LOVES rollercoasters! I mean like really adores them. The best deal we have found that works for us is at Blackpool Pleasure Beach because he can get a full ticket which means he can go on all the rides whereas I can get a park only ticket which means I can potter round the park with the boys but not pay for the rides part which I’m not likely to use. I guess when Jaxon is a bit older I can always go on the little kiddies rides with him then look after him while Chris does the big scary rides lol.

    I love rollercoasters, but they scare me! I feel like that’s part of what makes them fun, though. 🙂 I love that you do them anyway, though, because I feel like it makes you stronger.

      I’m not sure it makes me stronger – I think makes my husband *facepalm* when I freak out again! Thanks for the comment.

    I absolutely love rollercoasters! The scarier the better! I couldn’t ride them until I was a teenager though and someone made me ride a corkscrew coaster at Bush Gardens!

      Chris loves rollercoasters too. I’m not sure which is favourite is though – will have to ask him that one. He loves the scary ones too. Not quite sure why though lol.

      I’ve done various ones but nearly everyone I have tried, I’ve freaked out, had a cry or on one occasion blacked out (eek!). Upside down and/or backwards just make it worse!
