Poll - Why do you go on rides

Mon Jun 17, 2013 4:58 pm

this concerns thrill rides more
and kind of excludes dark rides.

No offence, but if you like them for 'the baby rocking factor' then you could probably get your thrills a lot cheaper...
I'm not completely useless, I can be used as a bad example :P

hmm, maybe I should call it something different  :?
I call it that because its the idea of motion-induced pleasure and the first time you feel it is when you get rocked as a baby. You would NEVER put a baby on blade though - so I hope people don't feel ashamed to like rides for that reason  :|

Becuase I like well love them! Pretty simple really ;)
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis

But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

No offence but rather than try to talk or joke over the logic of this - just try to understand what I'm outlining here. Its a real thing and I'm pretty sure people don't go on a ride to feel pain. It is the physical sensation of riding I am talking about. Who would have guessed that going on a large moving machine whos prime objective is to move people in a certain way offfers physical sensation?? Not you apparently.

For me it is a mixture of things, yes we all the like rush, enjoyment, but I also like to relax on rides and just enjoy it for what it is, Duel for example (No blaster required to enjoy it)
If you go down to the woods today
