Everything is okay, until it goes faster. My 16-year old niece asked.me yeaterday if we can ride the.ferris wheel in the town park. I said yes. The park got few people, and the ferris is not in operation since there.is no one there, but we tried asking if we can take a ride and we did for 25 pesos or $.40. We waited for more but then, only three young men dared to join us. It was fun at first, but when the wheel moves faster and felt bit shaky, i was like...how long is that ride? Felt like 30 minutes. I took a video of it, and uploaded it on my IG. Haha. Well, i am not sure if i will be doing it again. Hahaha. Have you ever get into ferris wheel? Or any ride in a carnival?

I have ridden those and they are pretty tame compared to the Tilt A Whirls and roller coasters. But when the wheel stops and sways at the top while others are picked up, it is a little scary. The Ferris wheel was invented by an American named George Ferris, Jr. I found that out when I wrote about Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Yes, when I was a kid. During that time, I enjoyed riding on the ferris wheel, octopus and caterpillar.

Oh i tried the octopus when i was older. It was located near the seashore. So when i rode it i can see the rocks and the waves and i was thinking, if some screw will lose we will surely be falling onto those rocks.. I wanted the ride to end.

@rona07 How old were you then? Why were they located near the seashore? Was it because of the space the rides occupied?

They have had to stop a ferris wheel to let me off every time I think I can do it. No way will I ever conquer my fear of heights.

I used to love them as a kid, but last year a friend of mine persuaded me to go on the big dipper with her as she didn't want to go on alone. Oh dear - it made me feel really queasy, and I can say with certainlty that I will not be repeating the experience. Sounds as if you might not be going on the Ferris wheel again, either.

I used to love riding the Ferris Wheel at our fall fair when I was a child. I haven't been on one for years, and don't know whether I would want to or not.

I am not into rides. I had only tried riding the caterpillar when I was a small kid. I don't like the ferris wheel in country fairs. Hihihi Maybe I can ride the ferris wheel at the seaside in MOA.

I have done those mad things when I was a bit younger. We have here what they call giant wheel. We do get that sinking feeling in the stomach but quite safe.

Yes, I rode a ferris wheel when I was 10 years old and when we were at the top, I shouted to stop, please stop. I can't bear the fast moving and shaking movements, I felt my stomach was not fine so the operator stop the machine. From that on, I never ride it again.
