Why is it fun to go on roller coasters?August 12, 2015 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #1096560JosephParticipant
The same reason it is fun to go boating.August 12, 2015 2:20 pm at 2:20 pm #1096561PosterMember
thrills are fun. Also its refreshing to move speeding and have the wind blow against your face. The suspense is also fun.August 12, 2015 6:16 pm at 6:16 pm #1096562technical21Participant
It is an extension of Stockholm Syndrome- a person identifying with something that is scary to him. At least, that’s what I was taught in Psych 101 in high school.August 12, 2015 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #1096563takahmamashParticipant

For the same reason people post here. Sometimes a high (compliment, praise) sometimes a low (ridiculed, taunted), and sometime a really steep dive (left to your imagination)August 18, 2015 12:12 am at 12:12 am #1096565shuliParticipant
It’s the adrenaline. It’s about the rush. The suspense. The thrill.

Random trivia time.
Can you name the six flags without searching on the internet?August 18, 2015 2:40 am at 2:40 am #1096567DikDukDuckParticipant
I like speed, which is only half the thrill of a wooden coaster and 1/10th the thrill of a modern coaster, so roller coasters aren’t really my thing. I’ve discovered I don’t like the feeling of falling.August 18, 2015 1:02 pm at 1:02 pm #1096568August 18, 2015 2:01 pm at 2:01 pm #1096569DaMosheParticipant
I miss the Great American Scream Machine…August 18, 2015 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #1096570skripkaParticipant
I hate roller coasters. but i did not want my campers to call me a sissy, so i went on one of those upside down ones, and it was the most fun i’ve had in a long time ( still hate them, cant explain it)August 18, 2015 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm #1096571cozimjewishMember
still can’t believe no-one noticed the spelling of the thread title…August 18, 2015 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #1096572technical21Participant
Of course people noticed the spelling, they just decided not to comment on it. I have seen much, much, much worse.August 18, 2015 6:18 pm at 6:18 pm #1096573👑RebYidd23Participant
It took a lot of effort to ignore the spelling of the title.August 18, 2015 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #1096574–Participant
YW Fan – The least you could have done was change the wording so it isn’t so obvious you copied it from elsewhere (my guess is Wikipedia).August 18, 2015 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #1096575golferParticipant
Cozimj, we ALL noticed.
And, in the spirit of Elul, we are all being mevater on the discomfort of the scratching-your-nails-on-the-blackboard chill we get every time we pass by, and we’re not saying anything.
Shhhh.August 18, 2015 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #1096576August 19, 2015 12:31 am at 12:31 am #1096577cozimjewishMember

maybe the OP meant “coster” as in “one who hawks fruit , vegetables , and other stuff” and the “roller”is wherever she stores the things she is hawking
