  1. I would like to think your doctor would have told you what was or was not safe to use, Mr. Roberts. But some don't, for sure. I haven't used cough syrup for years - makes me ill - and can't take motion sickness meds either because they interact with others. Yes, I agree you definitely have to be extremely cautious.
  2. Oil and jam? Seriously, Mr. Roberts? That makes no sense at all. Cough syrup isn't for nausea - I meant something like Pepto-Bismol or Dramamine. The dual pianist shows sound good. Might want to settle for things that don't move for awhile. Just do shows/events and not rides.
  3. I'm sure you're right, Mr. Roberts. Not equipped for anything serious. Thought maybe an anti-nausea med or something, though that's not even always the best thing to do. Maybe sightsee and not ride until things settle.
  4. Don't they have a first aid station you could have gone to, Mr. Roberts? Seems there would be something else you could take to ease that. I just saw something a couple days ago on the news about a new coaster that is the fastest, tallest, etc., but for the life of me can't remember where it was, or the name. Not even sure it was in the US but I think so. I was busy and not paying much attention to the news, only that it opened that day - sometime this week.
  5. Well, can definitely say no pin is worth a 9-hour drive, Mr. Roberts. At least you got scenic views for the trip.
  6. Well, at least he didn't arrest you, or throw you out. Kind of surprises me, Mr. Roberts. Sometimes people are kind, still.
  7. Well, yuck is about the best I can come up with, Mr. Roberts. Try dry white toast. It's easier on your stomach than wheat any day. Also dry saltines. Hate that your trip was spoiled. By the way, I looked up the ammonia buildup and it's a very scary thing. I am so sorry. Had never heard of that before.
  8. I take it you mean worse, Mr. Roberts. So sorry you had such a rough time. I know it's safer in the back seat but for a lot of people the front is necessary to stop motion sickness.
  9. I remember this, Mr. Roberts. Horribly sad. I heard that park is not open this year at all and the owners are in some kind of other difficulties.
  10. That sounds like a lot of fun, Mr. Roberts. No wonder you have such a variety.
  11. You definitely have an unusual collection, Mr. Roberts. I still think that song is funny.
  12. Funny, Mr. Roberts. With a disco, disco duck? Or are you too young to remember that?
  13. Guess eventually they'll have to announce it, Mr. Roberts.
  14. Well, this is interesting, Mr. Roberts. The lasers I could see laser tag? But bubbles? For children, maybe?
  15. Didn't think about that but you're right, Mr. Roberts. For some reason, Polaris reminds me instantly of the kids' movie, The Polar Express, with Tom Hanks. I watched part of that when it was on tv but it seemed quite odd; guess I'm just too old. If it's going to be a giga, Orion seems appropriately spacey.
  16. I saw something about that a week or so ago, Mr. Roberts. Don't recall where as I scan so many news sites. I like both names, but maybe Orion a bit better.
  17. If you get a chance, do check out Holiday World, though the terrain is not kind. It is such a pretty park and the drive down, once you get past Louisville, is very scenic. Again, awful heat when we were there, 114 degrees heat index. We spent two days at a hotel in a little town and took our time because those hills. It just seems well run and Santa Claus the town is fun to explore. Also the Abbey and a nunnery, not sure what it is called, but incredible architecture and so old. We had fun despite the heat. At that time drinks were free, all you wanted. That helped. Good food too. But that was about 15 years ago as I recall.
  18. I do know some folks in Cali but not well enough to stay with. Distant relatives haven't seen for decades and not likely to at this point in life. Never been much interested in going there. Prices are outrageous for everything there, I do know that. Are you able to drive distances still, Mr. Roberts? I hope you are able to go as many places as you can, but hopefully you have someone to go with. I forget if you've been to Holiday World. I know we have mentioned it but don't remember. So hilly but a nice park and so clean.
  19. Looked back at the link. Can't believe how much I've forgotten about over the years. That does seem odd, Mr. Roberts, that they included Monster. Ya never know. Used to love that thing when I was younger. First ride like that I ever rode was at a county fair decades ago, though it was somewhat smaller I think.
  20. Thanks for the correct information. Had forgotten about a lot of rides that are no longer there.
  21. Wow, that's a lot of pictures, Mr. Roberts. And all of them excellent. Not a lot of people there it seems. Last time I went on that pass night it was also cold and rainy. Quite miserable and we wore winter coats. The new antique cars are so bright and shiny. Not sure about the Skylab Cafe name. Even fake it seems not a good idea. While I like the look of pavers, they make it difficult for people with disabilities/age issues to traverse. Smooth surfaces are a lot easier for wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, or just older walkers. And are the fountains just staying full time on the low bursts? That isn't remotely appealing and seems rather odd.
  22. I know a lot of people who have missed this and will be happy to see it return.
  23. Nope, you are not mistaken, Mr. Roberts. The old ones were on a track. So much fun. Can't top the classics.
