UH, I've never been to Alton Towers, but I can just assure you that roller coasters are incredibly safe!
<BR>Most... <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">
<BR>Ride 'em or you'll be sorry one day, just relax and enjoy the ride!
<BR>Nothing can happen to you dude!

I suggest meditation and building up to it with smaller rides.

Work your way up from the least thrilling rides - kiddie, to them. Don't you have a Corkscrew coaster? Or just take the plunge (literally - Oblivion <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">)& ride them. You won't regret it! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_razz.gif">

I would suggest watching the old 1970's classic film "Roller Coaster" which is a movie about a terrorist who sets off bombs at different parks and kills people riding roller coasters....
<BR>No wait, nevermind, that might not be a good idea.
<BR>Seriously though, the only real way to do it is to get on them and ride! That's what I had to do my first time on a major coaster. I guarantee you'll be glad you did. If you instead try to "build up" to those rides by riding others, one of two things will happen:
<BR>1) you'll still be scared to ride them, because they are more "intense" than the "build up" rides you've been on
<BR>2) you'll ride them at the end of the day, realize they are great, and wish you would have done it earlier so you could have re-ridden them over and over again.
<BR>Good luck, you'll have a blast, I'm sure!
