When it comes to giant spinning rides, such as Slingshot, Skyscraper, maXair, and Delirium, I have no problem.

When it comes to spinning carnival flats where the seats do not spin separately from the arms of the ride, such as Wipeout, Himalaya rides, and Witches Wheel/Enterprise rides, I am fine.

Now when it comes to spinning carnival flats where the seats spin separately from the arms of the ride, such as Monster, Chaos, Troika/Shake Rattle & Roll, Calypso, I CAN NOT DO THEM. The central spin combined with the spin of the seats makes me severely nauseous.

Once I explain this, most people get it and understand what I can and can not ride.

if you can't handle those, you don't have a chance on this thing. it's the closest i ever came to losing it on a ride. i thought my head was going to explode. check out the ride time on this thing. i don't know who makes it, but we need one.

and one of these, too.

I don't know about this ride, but a month ago I rode a Top Scan in Virginia Beach and it was HEAVEN. :)

The spinning ride at ki that makes me want to lose it would have to be monster, and i was unfortunate to learn the hard way not to sit in a car by yourself, cause if you do, you better pray you dont start spinning. once that sucker gets going it WILL NOT STOP

Next time, PLEASE think about what you say before you type.

Especially when you can't even spell the word that you are trying to type right. By the way, I wouldn't call Giga a wimp. She's ridden Skyscraper, possibly one the most awesomest flat rides ever! And by the way Giga, I wouldn't exactly call Skyscraper or Slingshot spinning rides. I'd call them flipping rides.

The other day I rode Monster for my first time in years and I have never been so dizzy in my life. The ride-op did not spin me but once it got going it wouldnt stop spining. I couldnt see anything during the ride. I had to go sit down and I have NEVER sat down on a ride because I got dizzy. I can even ride Diamondback with a upset stomach without a promblem.

And please remember not all of us are 13...and what we could do when were 13 we may not be able to do 40, 50 or even 10 years later. People change. Sometimes for the better, sometimes not....

I'm 13, but I know for a fact that I cannot do spinning rides. I even got sick on a tireswing, so I KNOW I can't do spinning rides. Carnivals, I usually skip.

Definitely an Enterprise or Himalaya.. I can handle those, SFKK and CP have one of each.

KI has no spinny "carnival" flats I can handle. Neither does Holiday World. :(

I think we should get a Himalaya. I can't handle most spinning rides. I actaully have never even ridden Scrambler, but I'm going to try it the next time I go to the park. I ridden Himalayas at multiple carnivals and the one at CP. I thought they were both really fun and I didn't feel sick at all. I've personally never ridden an Enterprise, but that would be cool to have one.

Wow. I love spinning rides. The faster, the better. I thank the good Lord above I can do rides like that without getting sick.

When i was 13 i couldnt do spinning rides... but now i am 23 and i can ride anything. I remember I was at my towns carnival and i was riding the Pumpkin Patch thing, similar to the Teacups (You spin them yourself as it goes the opposite way) and my friends were spinning the crap out of it, next thing i know my head is hanging out the opening and i am projecting vomit all over lol!!!

The only ride i cannot ride is Maxair and Delirum, other than that im game for anything!

I rode this spinning ride today at The butler County Fair today it was called Typhoon it had a design like Scramble and you spun like it to but you were lifted in the air and begain going sideways and a very fast speed. And trust me it was fast.

...I'll ride ANY coaster you put in front of me, but I can't do that if I ride something like Shake, Rattle and Roll or Monster beforehand...

Does that include Reptar? :P

(I don't mean to offend you, but if I do, I'm very sorry :) ).

HEY NOW! LOL! Somebody's been reading other threads! No, it doesn't offend me. :P I discovered that Dramamine works wonders after RWW! :lol:

As for Little Bill's, I prefer not to ride it because I'm tall, the seat back is low, and the dips and my back don't agree with each other.

I used to be able to ride anything until Ride Warriors Weekend. On Saturday night I was about to get on Beast right before ERT Started, and my stomach hurt super bad. Than after I rode Beast my stomach hurt worst but I just went and rode Diamondback. I rode it 17 Times, most of which didn't leave the train. My last 3 or so rides I felt really nauseous. Once ERT was over and felt like I was going to throw up, luckily I didn't but now I have a bad problem. I can ride Diamondback, but only a few times a day. It really sucks, I want to just stay on all day but I feel sick after 3 in a row. This now happens on most coasters except wooden ones and Firehawk. I even rode Reptar one day cause It was empty, and I never felt more nauseous in my life! It sucks, even on a Kiddie coaster I get like that sometimes.

I do still love coasters as much as ever (And trust me, I love coasters more than anything, it's all my life.) But I can't reride much anymore. I really hope this problem will go away, I think maybe if I just keep reriding I'll get over it, or if I take a break from coasters? Maybe even If I threw up, I'd be cured. Cause I feel like I need to throw up and I'll feel fine, but I just have to wait til' the day comes that I do (I only throw up every 4 Years or so for some reason...)

But anyways, on topic... Kings Island needs some more classic rides. Ferris Wheel, Flying Scooters, Full size Whip, ect... Also we're lacking thrill rides, All we have is Drop Zone, Delirium, Crypt, Slingshot, and Xtreme Skyflier. Crypt now sucks, and the last two are up charge. Hopefully we get a Screamin' Swing or Jump2 in the next 5 years.

Does anyone else think KI could use a really big Ferris Wheel?

It'd add yet another way to see the park from above but isn't too short or intense as a roller coaster hill or the Drop Zone. It'd be especially nice for the little kiddies who are intimidated by the Eiffel Tower. It'd be one of those "hey, let's chill out on that ride for a while" rides.
