Scary rides

What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?

I am most scared of sitting in a rollercoaster and nothing in the world will get me to do it.

In 2000 I was visiting London with my family and one fine day I decided to visit the Millennium Dome. There was a ride there which was called something like Gravity Drop. The name itself was intimidating enough and should have kept me away from it, but I was in one of those moods where you want to try everything.

So I sat in it. Very slowly I was lifted up and was enjoying the view. So far so good. And just when I was all relaxed, it happened. The. Gravity. Drop. I reached the bottom but most of my organs were left behind all the way at the top. That was when I decided that I would never sit in one of those rides again. Never again.

A roller coaster is even worse. It is several Gravity Drops merged into one. That is why I don’t go near them. In 2004 I visited Los Angeles but did not venture near Disneyland and its treacherous rollercoasters. Instead I preferred to go to Universal Studios where the rides are theme based and leave your organs intact.
