  • Motion Sickness

    Do you get sick on the rides? I love speed but spin kills me. Before they added the non-spinning side to Mission Space the CM's would always notice my green pallor and check-up on me to see if I was OK. I can do ToT and RnR a couple times each but if I go much more than that at once then I will certainly be sick (Not throwing up, just sick).

    In preparation for this trip I got a prescription for Scopace (Same drug as in the Scopalmine patches but in a pill form), I did not want a patch when I was going to be sweaty (Seattleites don't see the 80's until August). I'm not going to press my luck but if it works well on the first day then maybe I'll be up for teacups or astro-orbiter on day 2!
    Maybe you folks can tell me though. Does gettin' two womenfolk mean you're the winner or the loser?

    If you can do Mission:Space at all, you are doing much better than I ever will!

      I have just done it once per trip, no need to press my luck. Of course everyone else loves it so I harass my relatives with emails of me from space while waiting for them to go 2-3 times each )

        I can't handle jerkiness, spinning, or going backwards. I can handle spinning if it's an indoor thing that has no visual cues that I'm moving, if that makes sense.

          I guess it varies by individual because I can handle all types of spinning, shaking, rolling, rotating etc. rides (visual cues or not) without any ill effects. My wife, on the other hand, cannot handle any of the spinning rides, including slow ones like ferris wheels and carousels. Edit: She can't handle spinning rides or any rides that fool your senses, like Soarin, for example. :yuck:

            Maybe we should coordinate our trips so you and my girlfriend can do the crazy rides, while your wife and I do tamer stuff.

              Like 'Wife Swap'...minus the arguments and breakups.

                I've heard that ginger helps with motion sickness. I'm NOT a medical practitioner of any sort nor do I suffer from motion sickness. However, I do get all of my medical advice from "Mythbusters" (hee!), where Grant and Adam were helped by consuming ginger before getting on a vomit-inducing spinning chair.

                A search in the forums for their show says that they used ginger pills. Another poster says something called Preggie Pops helps pregnant women with morning sickness and is also effective for the non-pregnant suffering from nausea.

                Hope this helps.

                  primevil Whirl made me sick. I should have known better than to ride something I can't pronounce properly

                    Very interesting. Good to know!

                    I can spin without a lot of problems, but can't deal with coasters or vertical drops (ToT was fun.....not).

                      It's pretty interesting to how different motions affect different people. I am planning to do orange mission space as the test for me as it hits me the hardest. If I am sick after MS then I will maintain my cautious approach.

                      It's not really that bad for me except that once I feel sick then every ride from then on that day adds just a bit to it. Not every ride of course, I can handle the spinning in Carousel of Progress just fine, thanks.

                        Luckily, I have very very few issues with this type of thing! (knock on wood!!)
                        I hope the meds work for you
                        Good morning, son
                        In twenty years from now
                        Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                        And I can tell you 'bout today
                        And how I picked you up and everything changed
                        It was pain
                        Sunny days and rain
                        I knew you'd feel the same things...

                          Star Tours made me sick the first (and only) time I rode it. I can do Soarin no problem, but I'll never climb aboard Star Tours again. My friend and I usually avoid the Teacups as well. We're sort of lame when it comes to adventurous rides, but I think that this is the beauty of WDW. There is something for everyone.

                            I had totally forgotten how sick Body Wars made me but I have been on Star Tours at least a dozen times with no problem. I guess that shows you that it is not really the motion itself that makes me sick, must be something about flying through fluids rather than space
