outbackjack Posted June 15, 2011 Share Posted June 15, 2011 (edited) OK. Not sure what is happening......I'm now 40 years old and have ridden coasters my entire life. Just recently, certain metal coasters give me the most unbelievable nausea in my stomach. It's not a headache, but it's almost worse, as it stays with me for hours. Now it's not a gray area, coasters either give it to me or they don't. I could ride wooden coasters ALL DAY LONG.....love them, love them, love them. Metal "speed and airtime" coasters I can ride all day long. But anything that goes upside down....or sometimes even helixes like on Everest just immediately hit my stomach BAD. Just got back from SFOG today, went with the kids so I thought I was invincible, and just LOVED Goliath, GASM and GC. Also DDD was fun and didn't shake me up. Mindbender is just so fun even though the bottom of the second "Loop", the one that doesn't go upside down, begins my descent. Then Batman, Scorcher and Superman......all just tore me to pieces. Painfully so, thought I did them for the kids. Can someone tell me why I can handle the vibrations of any wood coaster, the air and speed of any metal speed coaster, but absolutely get torn to pieces on others that are smooth, like Batman? Is there any hope, anything I can take, as I love all coasters, but this worries me that I won't be able to continue to do all types.
