Spent the day at Disney
With my youngest adult son
We had such a wonderful day
Until the day was done.

It was his idea to take a ride
He assured me it would be fun
We got our fast passes ready
This would be an easy one.

Not a roller coaster,
And, not a Ferris Wheel
The car would go a little fast
But would stay on even keel.

No mention of the start and stop
Just high speeds around a track
No reason for me to be alarmed
And, it wouldn’t hurt my back.

We sat down in a racing car
Proceeded to buckle up
The ride was fast, but more than that
It would start and abruptly stop.

Start and stop, again and again
Till I felt like throwing up
I hung on tight and prayed to God
Cause I had…. had enough.

Who knew that I’d get dizzy?
Who knew that I’d get sick?
It took 48 hours and some Zofran
To finally do the trick.

My back did take a beating
I don’t advise it for someone
Although, if you’re under 30
You might find this ride quite fun.

I think I’ll stick with NEMO or
They are gentle and quite easy
And, have never made me cry.

  1. We had a great day at EPCOT. The problem with the ride was……. the abrupt STOPPING and then STARTING. It really made me sick! We did have a wonderful day together, though. We had beautiful weather, too! Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment on my posts! 🙂
