If you don’t want to toss your cookies on an amusement park ride, do two things. This advice comes from amusement park expert Pete Trabucco, author of “America’s Top Roller Coasters.”
Open your eyes: Looking ahead helps your body adjust to dips, which makes for a smoother ride. That’s why it’s better to be in the front of the ride than the back. You can see what’s coming.
Also, bend in the opposite direction: For example, if the ride pitches you to the left, try to bend your body to the right. This’ll help prevent motion sickness.
