Help, nervous coaster enthusiast!
Hello everyone, my name is George and I am terrified of riding Colossus. I have ridden every other coaster in the park multiple times and have not found an issue, but I'm terrified of being sick on Colossus. I am severely emetophobic, which means I am essentially terrified of vomit. I have ridden all of the rollercoasters except for the Smiler at Alton Towers for the same reason. My favourite ride is Nemesis, and that is intense as hell so I just want to know if Colossus makes you feel as sick as other rides on the park. Obviously as an aging Intamin it isn't going to be smooth but I'm just worried about how sick them quadruple heartline rolls and the reverse one at the end will make me feel. Thank you
If you can handle SAW, Nemesis (and Nemesis Inferno), as Justin say's you should be fine with colossus and The Smiler.
Anti motion sickness advice, you could try one or more of the following
1) Travel sickness pills (bear in mind that these work by making you drowsy/sleepy)
2) Seabands wrist bands (they work by pressure points)
3) Flat CocaCola (make sure it has gone flat before drinking)
5) Peppermint (could be tea, but I use the extra strong peppermints, Tesco do their own branded ones for a £1 for a pack of 4) , Suck on one in-between rides as they can be a choking hazard if consuming on the rides.
****The peppermints is my recommended method which I currently use, but all of the above works well. Like I said with the travel sickness pills, they can make you very sleepy which is not good if you are driving and could also put a damper on your day, but should wear off withing 6 to 8 hours, read the instructions on the box for more info******
