Let me start by saying our family loves theme parks -- We go a few times a year. My parents took us when we were young and we take our gals when we can.
But nowadays, we do get new research and new info about things we never worried about before -- frequent usage of cell phones, the effect of a concussion on the lives of contact sports players, basic things such as the paint used in toys....
I am not looking for opinions. This is not about whether one felt dizzy after a ride or if one had a back spasm -- if you have a neck or back issue or are pregnant or have a heart problem, then there are plenty of warnings issued
But what about for most of us? Is it ok to go a few times a year for say 2-3 days -- I guess it adds up to a week or two a year waiting in line for a 1-2 minute ride on a roller coaster ? What is the latest research on that ?
Here are a few articles -- Does anyone have anything more recent?
These all seem to be older articles. I have not seen anything new? Any ideas on what the latest research is out there.
How safe are roller coasters in these theme parks ?
By the way this is a travel related post. Millions of people are traveling to our state to get in line to go on Roller Coasters and we just need to have the facts about how safe these rides are for most of us
