5 Ways to Get Over Roller Coaster Drops! | Sydney
How to Keep Calm on a Roller Coaster
Getting Onto the Rollercoaster
Practice self calming techniques.Breathe slowly and deeply and try to think positively, once you have done this it will all be worth it!
Tell yourself things that confirm the fun and safety of using the rollercoaster.For example:
- "It's not as bad as it looks. They have safety harnesses and the tracks are tested all the time to ensure they're safe. The restraints 'fail-safe' which means that the default position is locked, it takes more effort to open them! Perhaps even look up the statistics of injury on a rollercoaster, you will find that you are more likely to be struck by lightning of get hurt in a car accident! "
- "People scream because it's exciting scary, not bad scary."
- "It's only for a short time. Then I'll probably want to get back on and have another go because it's over so quickly, even if the worst case scenario happens and you hate it, it will only last for about 2 1/2 minutes. Then you have conquered it!"
Praise yourself for getting on.Tell yourself: "Well, I've made it now, it's going to be all right now that I'm on here." or "I've finally done it."
Go with someone you trust.This can help a lot to keep you calm and to have reassuring feedback from a person who is used to the rollercoaster or is able to deal with fears better.
- Be careful not to choose someone as afraid as you. This can turn into a situation where you feed off each others fear and make things seem a whole lot worse!
Coping When You're On the Rollercoaster
Double check your harness, bar or other restraint.Listen for the click or other sound it makes when it shut, several of the newer roller coasters don't have 'clicking' restraints. This means you can have the restraint closer to your lap so you don't moved as much. These restraints are still perfectly safe and they won't unlock during the ride.
Keep your eyes open!It can be tempting to shut them but you can become disorientated making you feel nauseated. .
Aim to breathe deeply.This can help you to keep calm and can reduce the possibility of vomiting. Count under your breath if it helps you to keep your breathing steady.
Listen for the music.There is often music accompanying the ride. This may help to calm you if you concentrate on listening to the words or tune.
Scream.That's what the ride's all about anyway! When you scream going down from high drops, it helps to expel the air and helps you to breathe as well as releasing stress to help you have fun!
Talk to your buddies.Talking is a good way to distract yourself during the ride. However, if it's hard to hear, you might end up yelling rather than talking, so be considerate of other people. The best time to talk is on the lift hill, this is the part where you have to wait to drop.
Stay at the front.This can help you to feel less scared. It's not ideal to sit here if you're looking for more thrills though. However, if you aim to not see the biggest field of view, the cart behind will allow for that.
Praise yourself at the end.You did it. And you know you can do it again. Overcoming fear is a constant challenge in life and it's a great thing that you're practicing this lifelong skill.
QuestionIs it better to sit in the middle of the coaster if I'm nervous?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes. In the middle seats, there is a little less wind, less jerkiness, and you don't feel alone like you do in the front or back.Thanks!
QuestionI know this is a weird fear, but I don't like launches on roller coasters. How do I start liking them?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThis is a VERY common fear and you are not alone! Before the launch be very vocal. Express your nerves by talking/singing or laughing! Stay calm, you will be absolutely 100% fine.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I deal with the pressure of waiting in line?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTry to distract yourself while in line by planning the rest of your day. Think about other rides you want to go on, what order you want to do them in, etc. You could also watch other people on the ride if you have a good view.Thanks!
QuestionI once had a pee accident on a roller coaster. My undies were soaked, and it was embarrassing. How do I prevent that?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerAccidents happen. Remind yourself to breathe and focus on having fun the next time you're on a rollercoaster. You can avoid drinking much for a few hours before your ride if you want to make sure you don't have a full bladder.Thanks!
QuestionI'm a kid and I'm really scared of the drops on coasters. I feel like if I'm going to fall out. What should I do when that happens?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerJust close your eyes, sing/hum a song, or talk to the person next to you. You will be fine by the end of the ride and those things will help ease the fear in the meantime.Thanks!
QuestionI am scared of the adrenaline feeling while on a ride. All of my friends and family like it. I am always embarrassed when I refuse to go on How do I get myself to like it?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou should go on and prove them that you can tolerate it and just act like calm and normal like your a pro at it, and, if you're too scared, just make up an excuse.Thanks!

- Smile even if you have to force it.
- Take a buddy on the ride.
- Ask people how scary it is.
- Only talk or breathe deeply when not going too fast or going up hill. As doing this going down hill or at fast speeds could cause the wind to stop you from breathing properly.
- Don't simply jump onto the biggest ride; rather, start slow, and work yourself up.
- Try hard not to freak out in the lines, or on the lift hill. These parts get your nerves tense, and they are often scarier than the ride itself.
- On most roller coaster rides there are handle bars you squeeze. Squeeze it, as this will help secure you from jerking forces on older rides and help control your stress.
- If you go on a ride that makes you feel intense like spinning at high speeds, the kind where you get stuck to the wall just think about what you do not like about the ride and focus on that.
- If you feel you do not want to go go or do not go and decide while in line so a employee does not have to stop the ride and spoil other peoples experience, most of the time it is not as bad as you think. Just remember you know yourself more than anyone else..
- Follow all the rules on the ride.
- Don't take iPods, iPads, etc. on roller coasters because they could get broken, lost or hit someone else or secure them so that they will not fall or otherwise be damaged; at the side of the rollercoaster is usually the best place for this but remember someone may steal it although this is very unlikely.
- Make sure not to bring a friend that will try to make you scared on purpose.
