Love them but DS doesn't like scary rides, so I rarely get to rid big coasters etc. DH doesn't like rides either! Yet we all love going and soaking up the atmosphere.

Like them but there aren't any near my location.

I enjoy the amusement park atmosphere and walking around, don't like riding any rides except merry go rounds.

I love amusement parks and roller coasters. Pretty much all fun rides and I am in. I don't like a ride that jerks you round because I have rods in my back and have to be careful about being violently jerked round~

"Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until this point is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses."

I find the cost of going so ridiculous now! I do enjoy them, but it takes serious planning to be able to afford to go.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I am glad that you enjoyed your visit. No worry, I will not be the cause of long lines at the amusement park. I will be the one holding the purses. I think I was 8 when my sister wanted to go on the Spider and I had to go with her. They had to stop the ride halfway thru so I could get off. I think that was the last amusement ride I was on. For me it is the motion and the heights that makes my stomach a bit squishy.

I remember my cousins talking about Kennywood when we would visit PA. It was like Disney World to them.

I often go to the zoo. It is just as fun as an adult as it was as a kid.

Not really--I've never been a fan of fast/dangerous rides and even less so since my brain surgery. I would probably go to the county fair or something similar if a friend wanted to go, but it is not the sort of thing that I seek out.

Also, I despise all things Disney.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I love amusement parks. Love roller coasters; there are only a few that I won't go on. Kinda a control freak so when I'm with my kids and they want to ride I like the ones that have the restraints that come down over their head. They are so skinny and fly up on the ones that just have a bar across their lap that it makes me nervous.

I've never been too big to fit in them but I have seen people turned away because they were and it's sad to watch. Went to 6 flags last year and they tried and tried to get the harness to lock over this girl and it wouldnt. At one point they had 3 workers pushing on it to try to lock it. I felt so bad for her because I could tell she was embarrassed in front of her friends.

Goals
March ~ 7 lbs goal met actual (9.4 lbs)
April ~ 5 lbs goal met actual (5.4 lbs)
May ~ 7 lbs goal met actual (7.2 lbs)
June ~ 3-4 lbs goal met actual (3.6 lbs)
July ~ 2-3 lbs

no / yes I do not like the rides. I like to go & have my yearly food. One order of homemade french fries, & 1 hot sausage with sauce peppers & onions, then I am good for another year.Every time we go it is so hot & sticky, & so many children crying & tired at the end of their long day.I think they really want to get out of their strollers & run around!!!

I absolutely adore them! I LOVE rollar coasters and anything that goes fast/spins upside down. Last visit was with my sister and her husband and kids for my niece's birthday - she's eight years old, and loves rollar coasters as well - so I get to go on all the screamers with her while my sister and BiL take turns with the other two on the quieter rides. My family has always laughed at the fact that I get as excited and have as much fun in amusement parks as small kids do.

I haven't thought about them in a long time. I've gone to lots of them growing up and also taking my own children. Now I'm not as interested because for being around large crowds, I just don't see it as worth while.

I have not went to an amusement park without a child as my youngest is only 17. I can see the fun in it but I would also feel guilty. My baby will turn 18 in October. I plan on going to the amusement parks until I no longer can walk. I still do not see myself going alone though. I will make it a family event. Some of the time with my kids and grandkids, and some time with just me and my husband. There are so many other places to go alone with just me and my husband, but kiddie parks I want to see the smiles of my children/grandchildren.

I used to LOVE amusement parks! Worked in two of them during my youth. Now I still really like them but don't go as often. I probably went to them with great frequency until about 4 years ago.

I can't ride as many things as I did before because some rides now cause nausea or dizziness. I still ride most roller coasters but some of the stuff in the parks now is just not kind to my system.

My first baptism on roller coasters was the CYCLONE in Coney Island at age seven...I was a very tall kid and my father wanted to give me a thrill. Palisades Amusement Park became my second home. I still love them. And I love Space Mountain at Disney. But I have never tried the loop de loops or the coasters where your feet don't touch the ground.

I'm still a kid at heart.

When I was "smaller" I felt a lot better about amusement parks. Now I worry I wont fit in the seats or the buckles wont fit.

I cant wait until I no longer have to worry about that.

My husband and I both like them. He does all the rides. Eventhough my vertigo is controlled for the most part, I still don't go on the ones that go upside down.

I am more into the theme parks than just the ones with thrill rides.

Went to Disneyland a few months ago -- just my husband and I, and like you say, it's a whole new experience when there's no one else to worry about. We rode lots of rides, ate what we wanted and took as long as we wanted eating it, came and left as we pleased. It was glorious! Now that our kids are grown, they travel and go on their own. I love hearing about their experiences, although I would have to say that as a family, we had great fun too -- not as MANDATORY as your trips sounded. LOL.



Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Any effort is better than no effort!

I think I like them - I haven't gone in a long time!

I KNOW I used to like them. LOVE roller coasters and drops of doom. Of course I have a hard time finding anyone to sit with me - neither spouse nor son is a fan of Scary Rides. And then I gained so much weight.... and didn't feel like riding rides anymore (fearing not-fitting under the pull-down bar being one reason).

Maybe I'll have to test this out, this summer when the local fair comes to town.

No, never have. Even as a kid. I get motion sickness even looking at all the rides.

My hubby and I have always loved amusement parks. We waited a few years to have kids after we got married and we played at amusement parks like kids. Now I have kids and the experience really is more for them right now, but I have always loved going on rides. I also love water parks too.

Is it wrong to fight time, to turn it back or push it forward? Time was never mine.

No, I get motion sickness too easily to enjoy any of the rides, and I also dislike being in crowds.

KJ - too funny - Mandatory Fun!!!!!!! hahahahaahahaha

I think we've all been there!

I like amusement parks - I have as much fun on the rides as the kids do. Problem is the nearest one to me is more than 2hrs away and here in Canada they all are expensive to get into and it's best to arrive on a full stomach as the food courts are crazy expensive too.

Of course, I do have a cash flow problem.... maybe that's clouding my judgement!

My gf & I went to the local amusement park yesterday (Kennywood Park, Pittsburgh, PA) and we it was just the two of us, we got there around 2:30 and left about 9:00 which was plenty of time to ride all the coasters but no rushing, we took our time.

A couple of things occurred to me while we were there;
1.) I can fit into the coaster seats (sorta, lol, I'll explain below)
2.) I had to shake the parent mentality so no feeling like I had to get the biggest bang for my buck.
3.) I had forgotten just how much fun the amusement park could be for MYSELF when not having to worry about other's experience.

I was never a coaster person during my tenure in The Fat Boys Club, I avoided them like the plague. I couldn't fit into the seats properly not mention I was afraid of heights and fast things. I do, however, have a new problem; my shoulders are very wide now from concentrating on them during lifting sessions. My gf is squished but not from my belly, my triceps and shoulders make it kinda hard for her to be comfortable and since she's only 2 inches short than me our upper body match up. I purchased one of those pictures they sell of the riders on the coaster at the point of the deepest drop and you can clearly see that she's squished but she claims she's okay with it because she likes my broad shoulders.

When my kids were younger their mother & I always had a "plan" weeks before we actually went to the park. It was like that scene from The Dirty Dozen where they go over the sequence of events for their raid on the Germans. We planned (from experience) when we'd leave, what extra clothes to bring to into after the water rides and would PLAN the time of day when we'd ride the water rides. We prepared food to take and also financially planned for what park food we'd buy as a special treat. We also would make sure we went to bed early the night before and woke up early and had breakfast ready to go, car all gas'd up, sun block bottle loaded (I didn't need it), etc.........
We were ready for MANDATORY FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After years of taking the kids to the amusement park and making sure they came first so that they would have the same kind of fond memories that I had as a kid (I wouldn't trade those memories I made for them, ever) I sorta grew out of the notion that those parks could be fun for me. This past weekend I had SO MUCH FUN!!!!! At one point we got ice cream cones and sat at an umbrella'd table and watched the world go by, no hurrying, no stress, we were that middle aged couple that I would see when I was a younger father with my kids tugging at me asking me to get them cotton candy and whatnot and think to myself, "Howinthehell do they get to do that!?"
