Photo Hunt: Scary



My son is scared of this kind of rides... we had a summer pass at Canada's Wonderland in 2006 and he only enjoyed the water part of the park. While my daughter tried every ride that she can ride.

This year though, he was brave enough to try multiple of rides like the above picture including the Vortex at Calaway Park. Thanks to the influence of his playmates who loves to try different rides.

I'm not that adventurous when it comes to rides after getting on one where I felt so dizzy. :(

That looks like a really scary ride. I admire Patricia's strong spirit when it comes to trying out scary rides at amusement parks.

That's nice that Patricia is not scared of rides. I used to be brave but now I'm scared to go on those rides anymore esp. the roller coaster. I get dizzy easily now!

my daughter also is not afraid of heights. it's a good thing she's not and she'd influenced my son who was at the time very scared of these rides. but for me, i am scared to death! ha ha

Hi Carey,
Oh I love roller coaster rides, that is why I am encouraging my kids to try it out too.

Hi Rach,
You should encourage Yohan too.

Hi Aerin,
It's not really that scary... I think they rode this like 2-3 times.

Dianne said...

Seeing that ride made me think of the time I was sick from riding something similar at Hersheypark and had to sit about an hour before I felt better. They do scare me-anything that spins around.
Thanks for visiting my blog too.

Hi Agring,
Now, our whole family loves it! Wish we have more amusement park here though.

Hi Julie,
Enjoy your weekend too!

Hi John,
To each his own.

Hi Bingskee,
It is fun! Try it!

Oh dear! Those kinds of rides are scary to me, now, too! I used to go on themas a kid, but how I ever managed it, I don't know!

So much fun & scary!

Baker Watson said...

This reminds me of John Pinnette, the comedian. His friends were always trying to get him on the scary rides.

Friend: "John. Don't worry. It has a safety belt."

John: "Do you know why? BECAUSE IT IS NOT SAFE!!"

I used to be able to ride things like that! But since I became a mom, I haven't been able to! Good for your son, though for facing up to his fears and riding one!

Here's mine: http://dragynm.wordpress.com/2008/10/25/photo-hunt-scary/

Frugal Grandma said...

Too "Scary" for this old gal. I like to keep my feet on terra firma! Nice choice for the theme - those rides are very scary (and when you are young - a whole lot of fun!)

Babs (Beetle) said...

It looks very scary to me too!

JO said...

Hi Baker,

Liz said...

He's barve. i don't like any of those rides.

Amanda said...

Have a great weekend!
Amanda

JO said...

Hi Liz and Amanda,
Thanks! He is a growing boy! And I'm glad he likes trying new things.

susan at 2lives said...

I have to admit this is scary to me...although the rest of my family loves these rides. I say "no thanks!"

I Digress said...

I like coasters, but not all coasters. I would definitely stay away from the wooden ones. They just don't feel stable enough to me, besides, they make my teeth go against each other like you wouldn't believe.

malou said...

If my children will try any rides of that kind then it would be me who will be scared to death..

Shinade said...

Oh Dear I don't blame him. It scares me just looking at it!! Great pick!!:-))

JO said...

Hi Ladies,
Thank you all for stopping by... see you around...

Me, the islands and the world said...

Tracey said...

I don't ride those kind of rides...too scary! I stick with the merry-go-round! ;0)

JO said...
