Every holiday has its ups and downs and rollercoaster holidays have more than most.
Of course you’re probably a big fan of the corkscrews otherwise you wouldn’t have booked this type of holiday.
Well, maybe, but then it could be a family holiday and Himself or Junior are the rollercoaster junkies.
Me, I’m a nervous rollercoaster but I will put myself forward.
But as tempting as it is may be you ought to miss out on the bacons, sausages, eggs, omelettes, pancakes and muffins.
Particularly if you’ve been down at the Irish duelling piano bar Pat O’Brien’s in Orlando https://www.universalorlando.com/web/en/us/things-to-do/dining/pat-o-briens.
And CityWalk’s Rising Star karaoke club. https://www.universalorlando.com/web/en/us/things-to-do/entertainment/rising-star-karaoke Doing giant Hurricane cocktails and shots.
Been there, done that
Motion sickness tablets: Right you get to the rollercoasters and your tummy starts doing somersaults.
You want to go on but you worry that you’ll bring up your breakfast over that cute excited little girl in front of you.
And that’s where motion sickness tablets come in handy.
Choose your rollercoaster: Don’t be a hero.
My old pal Colin is as tough a bloke as you’ll meet and will run through brick walls on a football field.
But he doesn’t like big dippers. That’s fine, there are plenty of attractions, funky characters and food… on the ground!
While some of us love a corkscrew or a loop the loop while others (me) like a vertical drop.
And then there are those 4D carts like you get in Harry Potter which tilt and play with your senses.
To give the illusion that you are riding on your broomstick around Hogwarts Castle.
And playing quidditch with Ron Weasley.
The feeling of disorientation will pass, the memories never will.
All that was left were the glasses
For many of us (me) we feel safer if we have water to cushion the fall.
And so for me it was Wet ‘n Wild Orlando which alas closed in 2016.
Dropping down through a trap door down the chute and round some loops
Before thundering into the final splash was one of the most exhilarating rides of my life.
So, Wet ‘n Wild has gone, you’ve still got Aquatica.
And in California
Disneyland Park, Anaheim https://disneyland.disney.go.com/destinations/disneyland/?CMP=OKC-dlr_themeparks_gmap_38 has it all.
And now something else again which for you Star Wars fans is something else again… Stair Wars
The way to do any of these theme parks, of course, is priority booking.
And the people to do it with are Attraction Tickets www.attractiontickets.com.
MEET YOU ON THE BIG DIPPER
