Can you get used to riding?

Postby Themeparkmaniac88 » Sun Oct 16, 2016 7:46 am

Hi All, thanks for reading this post.
Does anyone "get used" to a roller coaster and stop feeling the adrenaline rush when you've been on the same ride multiple times?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yes. All the time. It's rare that a roller coaster gives me an adrenaline rush anymore, because I am so use to them.

I think this is the thread I think you're looking for.

Simply put, I think the answer to your question is "yes."

I don't ever lose the adrenaline rush but it's a different kind of adrenaline rush. It's a rush, but it's not created by fear. The only rides that still scare me are Sky Coasters and Demon Drop at Dorney.

I talked about this in my recent Virginia report when I rode I305 for the first time. It's rare that I ever get an adrenaline rush out of fear anymore, save for a handful of rides on my first go - Kingda Ka, Dragster, Skyrush, I305. But even then its not really fear, its more of... intimidation that I'm about to do something that has a reputation for being completely crazy. I know its going to be fun, and I try to focus on that but all I have to go on are what other people have told me about the ride. But after I do it once, all that goes out the window and I just enjoy it (or hate it) for what it is.
