    I woul have to agree with you Denise. Unless I was passing out after the ride I would probably still do it! lol

    I have an uncle who has Vertigo and still rides roller coaster even though he begs for death afterwards! lol

    Just depends on your pain thresh hold...

    That all being said you should listen to the posted warning sings an listen to the advice of your health care professional... OFTEric is not a medical professional an in no way implying that you should ignore posted warning signs or go against the advice of your doctor.

    Same thing here. I am 6' 4" and 220. According to my BMI obese. I love that one.

    Sure I could stand to loose about 5 lbs around the equator, but I dont think I am obese

    An loosing weight is a great thing. I used to have sleep apena, and then I lost 10 lbs (well lost 10 lbs of fat and put on about 5 of muscle) - no more apnea

    I am not sure I'd do it if I was begging for death once I finished riding!

    I wouldn't suggest it for anyone else - but we only have one go-around in this life, and I tend to overpush myself when injured. Generally to my detriment!

    Re: No More Thrill Rides for You!

    I'm 42, and I actually feel a bit of urgency to visit the theme parks now while I can still ride everything. Who knows what will happen in the future? I know my mother loves theme parks, but there are some rides she just can't do anymore.

    On my Orlando trip last December, I eagerly jumped on everything, but some of the more extreme thrill rides (coughHulkcough), left me feeling headachy and woozy. I always prided myself on never shrinking from any ride, but that day will come eventually. Actually, some of the most spin-heavy rides make me too dizzy, and that is new.

    That's actually treatable! The proper chiropractic adjustments can get rid of vertigo.

    thankfully Dustin does love the slower rides and dark rides..its not all that uncommon for us to go on The Haunted Mansion 8 or 9 times in a row during a visit
    I thought I was the only one who goes on rides back to back. I usually just go on BLAB about 10 times or less back to back.
