Why Fly By

As they fly

Passing by

Tumbling through

Loops of sky

To hoot and cry,

They spend the day

Waving high

To Earth defy

As some shake heads

Oh my, oh my

And wonder why…

Note: These photos are from Canada’s “Wonderland” amusement park in Vaughn, where my family spent a day this past July, high flying and earth-defying while I mostly did the photo-taking and oh-my-why’ing. … ๐Ÿ˜‰ (In the photo above, they are in the three short horizontal lines in free fall on the vertical line, a moment before being turned upside down and sideways and goodness knows what else).ย  It was a delightful day all around (pun?) till I got on one kiddie ride in the afternoon … Now, if you’re into these contraptions, that place is an all out-human-milkshake inventive park, just be warned and don’t be fooled by the miniature height requirements: they start them early and loop-di-doop-whoop-loop even those rides meant for preschoolers. …

    • Yeah. I had plenty of company in the form of other ‘bag holders and baby minders and photo takers’ who had THEIR families in the blender … ๐Ÿ˜‰ We commiserated and shook our heads in disbelief that anyone would do this for FUN.

    • Some people actually ENJOY the vestibular over-stimulation but for many this is tied into how an Adrenaline rush is often followed by the release of endorphins (and with them a sense of well-being and ‘survival’ or ‘escape from danger’). Basically, it can ‘feel good’ to get through it and the feeling can become a bit addictive (so people want to feel the ‘high’ of it again). Not my thing, but chemically explainable.
      There are those who seek a ‘high’ by breaking the law and risking being caught. Some take drugs.
      Going on a roller-coaster and having one’s physiology respond to the perceived danger may be a socially acceptable way of tempting fate and stimulating ‘feel good’ systems.
      For others, stress is stress and their don’t enjoy this type of it.

  4. I don’t want to push you forward to take the big leap and hop on those rides to have a time of your life but you can try out this simple trick to ride on them and get off with your mind and heart intact:
    1. Sit on the ride
    2. If you take pictures from your smartphone, then turn on the camera app
    3. As soon as ride starts up, focus your entire sight on your phone’s display
    4. Don’t divert your sight anywhere else. Just keep looking at the display
    5. For fun part, hit the record button ๐Ÿ™‚

    You can try this out on smaller rides first and if you feel okay with it, then sky is the limit ๐Ÿ˜€
