Write about your strongest memory of heart-pounding, belly-twisting nervousness: what caused the adrenaline? Was it justified? How did you respond?

The strongest memory I have of a heart pounding, belly-twisting nervousness is at the fairground.

tea cups

The ride I remember are the ‘tea cups’, the ones which go round and round in a carousel motion and on top of that spin on an axis. These have varying degrees of scariness depending on how fast they can go. The fastest ones are not called ‘tea cups’ but rely on the same principle.


Sometimes you have people standing by the side of your ‘tea cup’ pushing you beyond what feels like the mechanical limit. Trust me this ride was worth it, if you rate it by adrenaline created. It seemed to go on forever. Oh I forgot to mention that the rotation of the ‘tea cup’ can go in both directions on its axis, causing even more dizziness. Needless to say I got through the ride, with my friend, who burst out laughing when I couldn’t hold my dinner down and proceeded to vomit thoroughly over the fairground grass.
