The first ever ride that I had in an amusement park was that Viking Ship in Star City, Manila. I was about 26 or 27 then. I remember being so afraid of my life like never before. I shouted, pleaded, cried for that ride to stop and afterwards, I vomited. Good times.
Then I was at Heide Park in Lüneburg, Germany where I cried at the entrance of a roller coaster ride so that my husband will finally let me NOT get into the line. My only way out of that ride was tears and I used it shamelessly.
Not that I do not like amusement parks. I love them actually, only that I do not like adrenaline types of fun. I always say that I would rather be bored than dead because of a heart attack. There are other things to enjoy in an amusement parks other than those heart-stopping acts.
An example is the Europa Park in Rust, Germany. The park is so big and has lots of things to do or areas to visit. I was there two times already and still I do not believe that I have seen everything. The park is just so huge and and naturally had lots of visitors that there was always long lines in every attraction.
Here are some photos I took of our recent trip. I do not remember the names and areas unfortunately but I will try my best to describe each photo.
I wrote above that I feel too old for amusement parks. I guess, I only meant I cannot take anymore those ‘kick’ adrenaline rides. I would certainly will go to amusement parks again because there are lots of things than can be done aside from those dealthly rides.
For example, one can visit the horror houses where you just laugh. Then 4D movies are also offered as well as drama theater. Not to forget that in amusement parks, one can just enjoy being a kid again and have your cotton candies while walking along the fantasy land.
