I finally got the courage to get on Dinosaur today when I made a spontaneous trip to DAK. I was sorta shaking the whole time because I never rode it before, therefore I had no idea how intense the ride was gonna be. For a minute or two I could feel nothing but blood rush in one of my legs and it kept shaking by itself.
After lots and lots and lots of shaking and jerking and unexpected flashing lights the ride was over pretty quick than I expected. As I got off I thought, "not a bad ride, short and exciting".
However a few minutes later, as I was walking over to ASIA, I started getting a really bad headache mainly focused in the back of the head area. Being paranoid as I was worried that I would be having a stroke, but I wasnt feeling dizzy or nauseous, just a little disoriented. Yeah I'm not even 24 yet but I am a bit paranoid due to the fact that I dont eat all that well but I do get frequent heartburn and headaches. Well the headaches continued for a good part of the day, the ibuprofen only helped a little. It may have also been cuz I didnt sleep so much last night, but the fact that these headaches started after the ride scared me.
I worry because I think the ride is waaaay too jerky. And the final part with the Carnatour nearly blinded me cuz blinking lights came straight in my face unexpectedly. I'm surprised that people have not gotten any brain hemmorages or seizures from this ride from all the shaking.
I think DINOSAUR is a good ride but I think it needs just a little bit of toning. I'm too scared to ride this again even though I thought it was interesting, due to the fact that all of that shaking is a bit of a health hazard and I didnt like the flashing light part. I mean this is different from riding a roller coaster or a drop ride. It can mess your brain up if you ride it too much too often.
