Until, they flipped me down on my stomach then I started to panic. “Get me off here because I am going to die,” were my last words before the ride lifted off. After the ride, I was paled and almost wanted to throw up. I had to rest for one hour before getting back to normal. After that, I didn’t ride any more high rides.
