Little boy is my rides junkie. We want to go to Disney in a couple of years... he'll be tall enough and I expect mature enough to ride them himself... Mommy isn't going to go on them with him. We take him every thanksgiving to a local fair and he has a blast on the rides.

My anxiety ridden NLD one... won't go on them at all...

I won't get on any rides either! Not even the ferris wheel----


I don't like fair ground rides, although I have accompanied Dimitri a couple of times.

I'm marveling that Charlie is not bothered by the restraint for the frog hopper, Dimitri would be trying to slide out from underneath or force it open.

I have been worrying about Charlie doing just that! But he didn't try when he was younger (he probably just wasn't strong enough) and I think he's probably in the habit of not trying to take off the restraint. I do worry about the swings, just because it's really just a thin metal bar and some chains that seem to secure the ride.

I did try to ride a teacup ride once with Charlie. I barely made it home, all while moaning woozily (and queasily) to Jim, and of course we'd been at a carnival that was far away from where we lived!


I hate rides most of the time. At least the falling fast make you feel like you're in a centrifuge kind of rides.
