One of the things I really love to do when I am on vacation is to go to an amusement park. I have loved to do this ever since I was a little kid and I would beg my parents to take me. Even now that I am an adult, I still love to go and see all the rides that there are to go on.
One nice thing about being an adult at an amusement park is that I never have to worry about being too short or too young to go on a ride. No matter how thrilling or scary a ride is, I can go on it if I want to. The only rides that I can’t go on are the ones intended for little kids, since now I am too big!
One of my favorite rides is the human gyroscope ride. You have probably seen these before, since they are pretty popular. They whirl you around and around in all different directions, so by the time the ride is over, you do not know which way is up and which way is down. It is really a whole lot of fun!
Of course, some people really should not go on these rides. If you tend to have trouble with your balance, or you get motion sickness easily, this is not the ride for you. I have seen people get off one of these rides and immediately have to throw up because they feel sick.
Fortunately, they never bother me in this way. I tend not to have problems with motion sickness, so I love the sensation of being whirled about in all three dimensions. It really feels as if I am flying through the air, being tumbled about every which way!
The last time that I went to an amusement park, I must have gone on one of these rides three or four times! It was so much fun that I did not want to stop. Of course, there were a bunch of other rides that I also wanted to go on, so I eventually decided to take a break on the gyroscope and see what else the park had to offer.
I also really enjoy roller coasters, and this park had quite a few different ones. These rides can be so thrilling as you climb up to the top of a hill and then plunger downwards at very high speeds. I especially like the ones where you go upside down or around in corkscrews. Nothing is quite so exciting as a good roller coaster!
Sometimes I like to go on rides that are not quite so thrilling, of course. A Ferris wheel or even a merry-go-round can still be fun. It is nice to take a little time to slow down and relax after a very exciting ride.
I do love a trip to the amusement park. I think I will plan one sometime in the next few weeks!
